Apple is working on a redesigned iPad with slimmer bezels, no Home button, and Face ID for release in 2018, according to a new Bloomberg report. The new tablet is not expected to feature an OLED display.

At least one new iPad model with a screen size similar to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is planned to include Face ID for unlocking the device, making payments, and sending animated emojis. The feature would replace the iPad home button that has come with a fingerprint scanner since 2014, one of the people said. The updated tablet is expected to be released later next year, a little more than a year after the last major iPad Pro upgrade, the people said.

Removing the Home button will let Apple significantly reduce the size of the bezel at the top and bottom of the device, making it look more like the new iPhone X.

We've mocked up what the new iPad could look like below. Let us know what you think in the comments!

This is one of those "No shit sherlock"-thingies... without having any facts I can confirm you that they are working on thinner bezels also on Mac Book Pros and FaceID-cam on them too... surely they will apply innovations and technologies to new designs, would be stupid not to.

FaceID is too small for an iPad, so will have a bigger notch :p

Dat notch. I'm ok with the headphone jack gone from all iDevices, my iPhone 6 with it remains untouched, so do my EarPods. I'd chose improved battery over 'thinness'. Watch for issues! Give it some time and go for it.
