I just read that a new iPad has been launched, which seems to include the same bionic chip as the iPhone X. If so, it would be very interesting if it were compatible with Live Face. An iPad is cheaper than an iPhone and great if you're not really interested in the phone aspect.

They launched two new iPad Pros, but the cheapest is $799 (and I would not advise that version -- it only has 64GB).  They do indeed have Face ID and seemingly the necessary 3D cameras and depth system needed for Live Face (although I'm going to guess there will need to be some recompiling for it -- the new iPads have a much greater pixel density).

So you can get a *somewhat* cheaper version if you really absolutely do not want an iPhone Xs (although I will also note you can get one of those for only $100 more -- if you are even slightly interested in having a new phone it's a much better deal).  But yes, I'd love to hear what Peter has to say about this, as I am in the market for a new iPad regardless of whether it runs Live Face (and that particular point might be worth knowing in terms of when I'll pull the trigger -- my own feeling right now is I'll wait for at least three to six months, but with Live Face I might go sooner IF I can run two separate instances of it in Live, so I have two actors captured).

Well, my wife and have been contemplating that perhaps we should finally get on the "smart phone" bandwagon, so an iPhone is still an option...Unsure

I'll tell you, I've owned nearly every iPhone since the very first (skipped the 4, for some reason, although right now I can't remember what that was) and the X is absolutely the best phone I've ever had.  It's so far ahead of anything else it isn't funny.  Yes, I know there are those who love the Android ones, and they are certainly just as technologically advanced, but if you like Apple at all you will LOVE the iPhone X (or Xs -- might as well get the latest).

But those new iPads looked wonderful as well -- so if you really don't need a phone (and Live Face will work with them -- should but let's hear what Peter says) they are also very lovely (I will definitely have one, but not this year most likely).

Just go the new iPad and I go confirm that Live Face is working as an Iphone App on it without any problem. I did connect in Wifi so there was some lag issues, I couldn't find yet how to connect in USB but I hope to find soon !

Thank you for confirming. I'm gonna go ahead pick it then. Hopefully you can get the USB issue resolved as I'm sure I'll be in the same boat
