Apple to release iPhones with in-display fingerprint sensor and Face ID recognition in 2021


Apple in-display fingerprint sensor

A new report by industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will be reintroducing the Touch ID with in-display fingerprint sensor in its 2021 iPhones. As per 9to5 Mac, the analyst believes that Apple will release both Face ID and in-display Touch ID fingerprint biometrics.

The under-display or in-display fingerprint sensor first appeared in Vivo X20 Plus UD last year. There are some challenges with present in-display fingerprint sensor:

  • Consume high power
  • Small sensing area
  • Thick sensing module
  • Difficult production

Kuo’s report also mentioned these challenges would be overcome by 2021. He likewise said that Apple is going to use an ultrasonic fingerprint under-display system similar to Qualcomm.

According to 9to5 Mac, Kuo likewise suggested that if Apple watch acquired biometrics in the future, then the under-display fingerprint scanner would be a better fit than the Face ID. However, he didn’t mention whether Apple going to include it or not.

Merging the Touch ID and Face ID security systems is an appealing concept. Possibly, this unlocks to some two-factor biometric authentication, suggesting a possible hacker would need to mimic both your face and your fingerprint to access to your phone.

Kuo has an excellent track record of forecasting Apple’s future advancements, any forecast like this is worth taking with a pinch of salt, mainly because it’s products are over two years away from release. The innovation may not continue as rapidly as Apple anticipates, and there are other reasons Apple may alter its plans. However, it might provide the business’s upcoming phones their most considerable shake-up because of the intro of the iPhone X in 2017.
