Apple is reportedly redesigning its iPad Pro series that will be ready to launch next year.

Following in the iPhone X footsteps, Apple is working on developing new iPads that will include its new facial recognition, Face ID, in favour of the home button. KGI had already predicted that Face ID would feature in the 2018 iPad Pro line-up, but now Bloomberg has published further details.

Bloomberg reported that not only will the home button be removed but the iPads will switch to OLED displays and perhaps a similar size to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro already in the market.

Furthermore the report reveals a new, improved Apple Pencil will be released next year. If this is the case, this will be the first time that Apple has revamped the hardware within the Pencil since it launched with the first iPad Pro. The redesign may also include a bezel-less screen and may also be lighter in weight.

However Bloomberg believes that the launch could be a year away and whilst Face ID is a possibility the feature could be dismissed depending on supply issues over the next year.
