Apple is never in a hurry to introduce new technologies into their devices, preferring to “measure seven times”,
Every fall, an American company presentsnew iPhone. It is already known that the corporation plans to release a smartphone with a display, which will be embedded fingerprint scanner. Yes, this is not news. Indeed, many manufacturers have already shown their similar solution. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how Apple implements this chip.
This information was disseminated by a well-knownMini analyst Shi Kuo, from whom we often hear forecasts regarding the future of Apple, which are 95% true. So, the analyst reports that in 2021 Apple will finally release its phone, which will not only have Face ID technology, but also a fingerprint scanner built into the screen. Thus, the manufacturer will also be able to increase the security of data on the device.
Recall that in the line of iPhone XS, iPhone XS Maxand the iPhone XR, the company completely abandoned Touch ID technology in favor of Face ID. Meanwhile, Chinese mobile phone manufacturers have gone in the opposite direction and have expanded the use of fingerprint recognition technology on their displays from their premium smartphones to mid-range models where they have proved equally popular.
Rumor has it that Apple is trying to integrateTouch ID under the display on the iPhone X in 2017, but the company abandoned any form of fingerprint scanning after getting on the “line of sight” with Face ID. However, Kuo claims that both Face ID and FOD technologies are “complementary, not competitive.”
Last month, Chinese media sourcesstated that Apple intends to release a new iPhone for the budget-constrained Chinese market with a fingerprint sensor. However, these reports said that fingerprint scanning would replace, and not complement, Face ID technology, which was considered too expensive.
There were rumors that Apple did away with Touch ID insmartphones, although in the past they studied various solutions for scanning fingerprints on a display, including MicroLED touch displays. However, Touch ID has found a new life on laptop keyboards, especially in the line of Apple MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
