According to a recent report from Bloomberg, Apple seems to be developing and is expected to integrate Touch ID fingerprint sensor technology under the screen for its future iPhone generations, as early as the fall. next year.
The report says this will be a complement to the existing Face ID authentication and unlocking system, allowing users to authenticate with fingerprints or face biometrics.
According to this source, Apple is said to have worked with suppliers and prepared operational prototypes. If the test of "Apple defective" is successful and the mass production is conducted as planned, the company can integrate Touch ID fingerprint sensor for the iPhone 2020 generation.
Reportedly, the new Touch ID sensor will work in conjunction with Face ID and provide users with a secondary form of biometric authentication. Apple is also said to be looking to make its in-display fingerprint sensor technology work in a larger area on the screen.
However, the source also noted that there is still a possibility that this new Touch ID sensor will not appear on iPhones until 2021. This repeats the time frame proposed by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has previously stated that Apple will launch the iPhone with both Touch ID and Face ID in 2021.
