In 2021, Apple may return the fingerprint scanner in their smartphones. The cupertinos will not abandon the Face ID. According to the authoritative analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, in the future Apple smartphones can be equipped with two identification systems.
Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that within the next 18 months Apple will be able to solve a number of technical problems which yet don’t allow to “hide” all the necessary sensors to work Face ID and Touch ID below the screen. It is possible that the cupertinos will unite the two identification systems in a kind of complex, which will better protect user data.
The expert believes that the new generation of Touch ID will be built on the basis of ultrasonic sensors Qualcomm. While it is likely that new fingerprint scanner will be used not only in Apple phones and Apple Watch.
It is worth noting that about a month ago, the network has already appeared information about the plans of Apple to create a more affordable smartphone with Touch ID, which will be focused primarily on the Chinese market. The sources did not rule out that the cupertinos will embed the fingerprint scanner on screen.
