Face ID is reportedly coming to all three 2018 iPhone models

The different components of the TrueDepth camera.

Another two reports surfaced today suggesting that all three iPhone models this year will adopt Face ID. 

While it remains to be seen whether Apple will introduce two OLED iPhones and one LCD iPhone this year, both ETNews and The Investor are confident that the three upcoming iPhone models will come with Face ID. 

Both publications added that Apple will be diversifying the suppliers for the components of the TrueDepth camera system. Although LG Innotek will remain as the main supplier of the module, Apple is said to have dropped Sharp as the supplier "failed to renew the deal". Two unnamed Chinese suppliers are believed to be included in the supply chain. 

In October 2017, KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo predicted that Touch ID will disappear from all iPhone models in 2018. He also stated that future iPad Pro models would come with Face ID and Bloomberg followed up with a similar report
