Both new iPad Pros are 5.9mm thin, that’s one millimeter thinner for the larger iPad Pro. iPad Pro now includes Face ID, first introduced with iPhone X, for unlocking the iPad with facial recognition. Face ID also powers Animoji, Memoji, and other features like Apple Pay, logging into apps, and more.
