Apple has skipped Touch ID in favor of Face ID on every new iPhone launched since November 2017, the only exception being the iPhone SE (2020). But in future iPhones, both features could sit alongside each other.
Under-screen Touch ID could arrive on the iPhone 13 Pro
Anonymous tipster L0veToDream has an extremely accurate track record when it comes to reporting Apple leaks. He has only been wrong twice in the past five months and today he’s indicated that an under-screen version of Touch ID is coming.
Apple hopes to increase the sensing area, cut power consumption
More details about the plans haven’t been shared since the initial report last year, but Kuo did reveal that Apple was looking to use a modified version of Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint-under-display system.
Touch ID could sit alongside 120Hz and a new notch
The introduction of in-display Touch ID in 2021 might not be the only big upgrade coming to the display. Recent reports suggest Apple is looking to adopt a 120Hz refresh rate on its next Pro-branded models.
Little else is known about the iPhone 13 Pro series at this stage, but the usual upgrades in the camera and chipset department are almost guaranteed. Apple may choose to adopt a smaller notch as well, although this is far from confirmed.
