The trail can go as fast as it came. Ming Chi Kuo He launched another of his predictions via his Twitter, in which he relies on new data from his sources to say that We won’t see a Touch ID sensor under the iPhone screen in the short or medium term. We may never even see it.
Why use our finger if we already have our face
The reason would be simple: Face ID already works very well, especially now that it can work even with a mask on and without having to wear an Apple Watch for it. That’s why Kuo goes on to say that Touch ID it could appear in 2025… if Apple decides to launch it.
If we look at past rumors, we can guess that the technology of an under-display fingerprint sensor It’s been in Apple Labs for a while., but it would not have convinced the engineers because of its lower level of security. And that many Android phones have adopted sensors under their slabs, but we already know that Apple does not want to look at the competition to make its own decisions.
Where Touch ID dominates is on Macs. It can now be used in all models equipped with an Apple Silicon chip, even in Mac minis if you buy the Magic Keyboard that equips it. But in the case of the iPhone, the future seems clear: it will be our face and not our finger that will allow us to comfortably unlock the phone. Courtesy of the iPhone SE, of course.
