With a simple glance, Face ID securely unlocks your iPhone X. You can use it to authorize purchases from the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, and payments with Apple Pay. Or are there other features you want in your next iPad?

Apple's next iPad will see a complete redesign, according to a report from Bloomberg, that will make it look and feel more like an iPhone X, including slim bezels and Face ID.

What's interesting with this latest development is that it taps into pre-existing strategies for both Microsoft and LinkedIn. This integration is created to make it easier for people to search for others inside their organizations.

The report states that that this new iPad will have a similar sized display to the current 10.5-inch iPad Pro but will get rid of the current Home button with Touch ID in favor of the new Face ID technology introduced with the iPhone X.

The new iPad is expected to go on sale next year around the same time as this year's iPad Pro launch.

Other suppliers, including LG Electronics Inc., Japan Display Inc., Sharp Corp., and smaller China-based firms like BOE Display and Tianma Microelectronics are also unlikely to have the ability to supply tablet-sized OLED screens to Apple next year, other people familiar with the supply chain said. However, the report says that the new iPads will also drop the Home button/Touch ID, something that KGI's recent report didn't mention.

Tablet sales have taken a 17 percent decline globally over the last three years and Apple certainly felt it. Knowing that the iPhone 8 and iPhone X have a processing unit that is quite impressive, having access to more power in a tablet may offer even greater capabilities for graphics and computing.
