A new note from reliable supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities today includes the prediction that next year’s iPhone lineup will bring upgrades to Face ID. He also includes a forecast for the next round of iPads — before the newly announced iPads even reach customers.

Kuo believes that the 2019 iPhone models will arrive with an upgraded Face ID experience. Specifically, he says that Apple will increase the power of the flood illuminator which will help reduce the potential for environmental light to interfere with Face ID. For users, that should mean fewer failed unlocks when using facial recognition to unlock the iPhone.
