The long-awaited new generation iPad Pro is about to go into production, but we won't be seeing them in stores until summer, according to analyst Jun Chang at Rosenblatt Securities. The company is expected to add TrueDepth cameras to the new 10.5- and 12.9-inch Pros to support Face ID, Animoji, and other 3D technologies.

That said, as we said, this is hardly a Pro line, and it's hard to say for sure when Apple will announce them.

Switching to face scanning for user ID will also allow Apple reduce weight and display bezels.
