Apple reportedly working on redesigned iPads with slim bezels and Face ID

According to a new report from Bloomberg today, there are some big changes in store for Apple's lineup of iPads. As was reported last month, the new devices will come with Face ID, meaning that the device itself will get an overhaul.

This means that the Home button will be removed, allowing for slimmer top and bottom bezels. Those bezels have largely remained the same size since the first iPad was introduced in 2010, so if this report is true, it could be one of the most major changes to the device that we've seen.

Face ID first debuted on the iPhone X, which was released last week. It also comes with an OLED display; however, according to the report, next year's iPads will not include the screen technology. They'll still use LCDs.

If it's not entirely obvious, the new tablets will include a faster processor - likely an A11X Bionic or something like that - and a custom Apple GPU. The firm is also said to be launching a new Pencil, although it's not clear what new features it might provide.
