It’s been widely reported that Apple is testing Touch ID with an under-display for the current flagship iPhone 13 series. The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg reported that Apple had tested the feature on some iPhone 13 models. According to the latest reports, iPhone users may have to wait longer than previously thought. iPhone models with under-screen Touch ID aren’t likely to be released in the next two years, says well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to Kuo, Apple may release a new Touch-ID-enabled iPhone model in late 2023, but his latest tweets contradict that claim.
The earliest iPhones will support under-display fingerprint sensing/Touch ID, according to a previous prediction of mine from 2016. Under-display Touch ID may not be used on future iPhones, according to a recent survey. A great biometrics solution is already built into the iPhone with Face ID and a mask. the tweet from KOO cites.
When the pandemic hit, many iPhone users were unable to use Face ID to unlock their devices because they were hiding their faces behind masks. iOS 15.4 introduced a new Face ID with mask feature that makes it possible for users to authenticate their ID even when they are wearing a mask, which was previously unavailable.
Apple is also developing Face ID for future iPhones with an in-display sensor. According to a report by Korean website The Elec, Samsung’s new display technology will be used by Apple, according to a report by The Elec. According to the report, Apple iPhone 15 Pro models will only have a single punch-hole camera on the front because the Face ID sensor will be tucked under the screen.
