  • Here’s what to expect from Apple’s next-generation iPad lineup

According to people familiar with the matter, the redesigned iPad is expected to ditch the home button, replacing touch ID with Face ID, and feature slimmer bezels similar to the iPhone X. An OLED display is however said to be unlikely. The iPhone X is $200 more than the newly released iPhone 8 Plus thanks to its OLED upgrade. Bloomberg only mentions the 10.5-inch model in its report. Bloomberg said Apple also wants to slim down the bezels around the sides and above and below the screen, which means it might be a slate that's nearly entirely a display.

A 10.5-inch model will likely include Face ID so you can unlock the device, authenticate Apple Pay and, of course, send Animoji.

It looks like the iPad could be the next Apple product to get the Face ID treatment.

Apple is probably also limiting the number of devices that feature an OLED display simply because of the shortage. According to Bloomberg's sources, Samsung will be the only display manufacturer that has enough capacity to produce the iPad Pro's new screens next year.

RIP Love, aka Brother Love
While Diddy had previously said he wouldn't respond to any of his previous rap names, he softened that stance considerably. No stranger to a name change, he has been known by the names Puffy , Puff , Diddy , P Diddy and Puff Daddy over the years.


Tablet sales have taken a 17 percent decline globally over the last three years and Apple certainly felt it. It is doubtful competing companies, such as LG Electronics, would have the ability to supply these panels for a model to be released next year. That said, not everyone is a fan of change, and if you find yourself loving the iPhone X display but otherwise aren't yet ready to let go of the home button, there's a workaround you can implement in iOS 11 that will provide you with a digital home button on the screen.

One feature of the iPhone X that won't apparently be making its way to the new iPad would be an OLED display.

A new report from Bloomberg says that Apple is working on a redesigned high-end iPad for 2018.
