Apple is clearly getting ready to bring a new form of Touch ID fingerprint sensor integrated under the screen to iPhone 2020 models in the fall of next year, according to a hot news from Bloomberg. This report says the new Touch ID will be an additional feature to the Face ID authentication and unlocking system that is present on current high-end iPhone models, allowing users to choose a form of biometric security. whatever you like.
Bloomberg added that the new Touch ID could be delayed to 2021 – coinciding with the timeframe that analyst Ming-Chi Kuo put out. He had previously predicted that Apple would launch an iPhone model with both Touch ID and Face ID in 2021.
Apple is said to have been working with suppliers and has prepared a few working prototype devices, but it is unclear whether they were able to produce this technology on a large scale to keep up with the launch. of the next generation iPhone models or not.
Providing both Touch ID and Face ID will enhance the convenience and speed of iPhone unlocking in general. Users will register both fingerprints and facial signs on the device, then the iPhone will unlock as soon as it successfully recognizes either of those two signs. That means Touch ID will overcome the weaknesses of Face ID and vice versa.
For example, Face ID does not work well when users wear a headscarf (in Islamic countries, for example), or a face mask. These users can simply switch to Touch ID. Conversely, users with skin conditions like psoriasis will not be able to use their fingerprints to unlock their iPhone, so they will switch to Face ID.
Similarly, a regular user sometimes wants to use the phone when placed on a table. Face ID isn't designed to work well in such a case, but with the return of Touch ID, users will have no problem. Touch ID does not work when your finger is wet, but Face ID still recognizes your face even if you are wet in the rain.
By integrating Touch ID into the bottom of the screen, Apple can continue to pursue the iPhone X's borderless design, while improving the overall user experience. Many Android manufacturers have launched smartphones with such integrated fingerprint sensors, but none have created a phone that has both a 3D face unlock system and biometric fingerprinting. both hands. iPhone may be the first to bring both of these great unlocking options on the same device.
In addition, Bloomberg also said that Apple will launch a new iPhone model, as cheap as they used to do with SE, in the spring of 2020. This device is described to revive the design of the iPhone 8 and continue to use. Use a physical Home button with Touch ID. In-display fingerprint sensor technology will probably only be used for high-end flagship iPhones.
Related to the iPhone 11 series (iPhone 2019) will be announced next week, there is information that the improved Face ID system will work at a wider scanning angle, under more angles, but do not expect to have unique enhancements like the Touch ID above. Perhaps the most attractive point of the 2019 iPhone will revolve around the new square camera cluster that has been talked about for a lot of time.
