After 2 years, the iPhone will again receive Touch ID


Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo talked aboutsome features of the iPhone, which will be released in 2 years. In the thirteenth generation of the smartphone, a fingerprint scanner will appear, which will be integrated into the screen. Details will be provided by Qualcomm, which introduced an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner at the end of last year.

Apple plan for a maximum of 18 monthsEliminate critical hardware bugs that interfere with scanner installation. Among them, the sensor capture area, module thickness, energy consumption, as well as the speed at which the multilayer coating is produced.

It is likely that the iPhone will complement the optical scanner. For him, the novelty will have a special cutout. Although, according to Kuo, such a decision is unlikely.

It is worth recalling that the manufacturer has stoppedUse Touch ID on iPhone X 2 years ago. Instead, they added Face ID. The following models only supported face unlock. Then Apple similarly changed the iPad Pro: the new tablet did not have a Home button, and hence no fingerprint scanner. At the same time, new versions of the MacBook continue to use the Touch ID scanner.
