Apple might be on the way to fixing the weirdest sorun with the highest-end iPad Pro.

“During Face ID setup, iPad needs to be in landscape with the camera at the top of the screen. Once setup is complete, Face ID works in portrait and landscape,” one of the messages says, according to 9to5Mac.
It’s possible that these new iPads are the ones being referenced in this code, but we won’t know for sure until the devices are in our hands.
