Apple is likely to bring its Face ID facial recognition technology to the next iPad Pro, according to reports on Monday.

As usual for Apple-related predictions, the word comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a near flawless track record for such predictions.

However, the iPhone X isn't out yet and Apple hasn't yet received feedback from users on the new security feature. This newest video, courtesy of Reddit user, anonymousdave52, shows an iPhone X up close and personal.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus notably offers a huge improvements on the inside over their respective predecessors - iPhone 7 and 7 Plus - but the Apple's newest hardware product everyone is talking about is the 10th anniversary flagship smartphone, the iPhone X.

The iPhone X isn't available for pre-order until closer to the end of this month.

We all know how popular the iPhone X is and how much of an impact it's had on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sales.

The world will get its first taste of Apple's Face ID tech when the iPhone X is released on November 3.

Apple claims that the Face ID will revolutionize biometric authentication on the iPhone X. Now it would appear that Apple will also add Face ID to next years iPad Pro. It turns out that iPhone 8 devices are reportedly splitting open due to a severe issue.

It's not clear what the fate of the Home button and Touch ID will be now that Face ID is gaining prominence.

This isn't the first time we've seen pictures of the iPhone X being used in public now that the phone isn't a secret anymore. So while some analysts have pointed to weak iPhone 8 sales as a sign of weakness, Kuo maintains that overall iPhone 8 demand is where it should be given the looming launch of the iPhone X.
