While the TrueDepth camera enables support for Face ID, it's unclear if Apple will ditch the Home button and Touch ID on the iPad.
We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications. We expect Apple's (US) major promotion of facial recognition related applications will encourage the Android camp to also dedicate more resources to developing hardware and facial recognition applications.
Previously, Kuo has estimated that it will take Android manufacturers up to 2.5 years to catch up to Apple's facial recognition system. Apple last updated its iPads in June of this year.
