Although FaceID remains to be one of best features of latest iPhones, it still has its shortcomings. For example, users are required to look at their smartphones to unlock it. On the other hand, TouchID is one of the most flexible features for end-users. While we’ll have to wait to find out whether it’s true or not, recent reports have suggested that Apple intends to bring back TouchID feature for the next generation of iPhones.
According to Barclays analyst Andrew Gardiner and his colleagues, Apple is likely to integrate an in-display TouchID for this year’s iPhones that are expected to launch later this year. This isn’t the first time we’re hearing about the in-display sensor but it’s likely that the company is working on the new feature that are available with other smartphones.
While we still have a long way to go until the official announcement, it’s unclear why Apple has taken so long to implement the in-display fingerprint sensor. As mentioned earlier, other smartphone manufacturers have included the feature with their products for a while now. At the moment, we will have to wait to see if Apple is working on creating something unique to the iPhones.
As Apple is unlikely to confirm the claim until the official announcement, it’s best if we take the latest rumor with a grain of salt.
