According to the Lead Analyst All 2018 iPhone to Feature Face ID


                Back in 2017, securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that there will be three new Apple iPhone models in 2018, and all the three models have a Face ID recognition. Now today  the  Loup Ventures (via Cult of Mac) analyst Gene Munster,  has reported that  a company called Lumentum which is a key supplier of Apple Face ID components has seen an increase in orders and it reconfirms the earlier rumors that all three of Apple's new iPhone models will be equipped with Face ID.
             According to his report the Lumentum is a California based company and it is Apple's primary source of vertical-cavity-surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) components used in the TrueDepth Camera for 3D sensing and augmented reality. Munster also claimed that he expects the company to ramp up VCSEL production this fall and it will be higher than expected revenue reported by Lumentum during the second quarter, and the company's forecast of third quarter revenue. On seeing this ramp up in production of the VCSEL arrays, the analyst has concluded that all three 2018 iPhone models will sport a TrueDepth Camera and offer Face ID.
             Munster also say that the overall sales of the Apple iPhone X has increased by showing  the numbers of VCSEL production by Lumentum are still high on AR (augmented reality). Apple's CEO Tim Cook has later commented about the technology that they don't need to analyze the revenue from an Apple supplier to know that the company is still committed to AR. Gene Munster also says that -  " We anticipate 3D sensing will only be front-facing on the new iPhones and believe Apple will be incorporating this technology in new product categories such as the iPad. Given Lumentum and other VCSEL suppliers continue to be capacity constrained, we believe Apple has once again secured the majority of all VCSELs produced in 2018, further expanding their lead in AR", this  indicate that Apple might extend its TrueDepth Camera and Face ID  to other products such as iPad tablets.
