Apple’s next low-cost iPads might skip Face ID

If the redesigned iPad Pro gave you hope that Apple would deliver a similar overhaul for lower-cost iPads, you might want to temper your expectations. Code sleuther Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered that the iOS 12.2 beta references four new iPad configurations that don’t include Face ID, suggesting they’ll stick to Touch ID and thus a more conventional design. This isn’t shocking when Apple is likely sticking to a lower price point, but it does suggest that it could be a while before the company’s depth-sensing camera tech is truly affordable.
