Here's how to add a virtual home button to your iPhone X

The company's next iPad Pro is expected to ditch its home button in favor if Face ID, much like the iPhone X, according to a new Bloomberg report.

However, using an OLED panel for an iPad Pro would be a much more hard undertaking because the device supports the Apple Pencil and also has features such as ProMotion, which makes the tablet much more responsive so that it can be used for more than what most people use their iPhones for. From what we can ascertain thus far, demand for the iPhone X appears to be even stronger than many people anticipated. However, the inclusion of an OLED display is unlikely due to cost and lack of choice of suppliers.

By removing the home button, Apple plans to noticeably reduce the size of the edges on the top and bottom of the device for the first time since its introduction in 2010, bringing the design closer to that of the recently released flagship iPhone X. The new version will mark the first revamped look for the iPad since the first iPad Pro debuted in 2015.

Apple is planning to overhaul its iPad for 2018, slicing away bezels along with the TouchID fingerprint sensor. According to Bloomberg's sources, Samsung will be the only display manufacturer that has enough capacity to produce the iPad Pro's new screens next year. The Cupertino, California-based company reported last week that iPad revenue rose 14 percent to $4.8 billion in the fiscal fourth quarter, with an 11 percent increase in the number of units sold. Additionally, the new iPad will come with an upgraded processor, GPU, and Apple Pencil Stylus, which will come with a new set of software-enabled features. Would it bother you to have a notch on your iPhone X and symmetrical bezels on your iPad Pro? Apple's facial recognition feature is used like Touch ID to unlock a user's device and for approving payments using Apple Pay.
