Apple is developing an iPhone with a fingerprint sensing unit behind the display screen as quickly as next year

-

Each brand-new year brings a brand-new iPhone. This year is no various– the 2019 iPhone is expected to be exposed next week, on September 10.

But Apple is currently tough at work on the 2020 iPhone and beyond, and the latest report on the future of Apple’s very popular product heralds a return of the finger print sensor that was utilized for several years as a means of opening the device.

Bloomberg reports that Apple is working on a finger print sensor that, instead of occupying important display space, would be concealed beneath the display. Like Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones, you could put your finger on a particular location of the front display that would then open the device.

It’s not clear if the fingerprint sensing unit, called “Touch ID” in Apple jargon, would become part of the 2020 iPhone or a design beyond that.

Over the last few years, Apple has replaced fingerprint-based security with a brand-new function known as Face ID. Instead of using your finger, your face is your password. However users have reported concerns with Face ID in low light, while using sunglasses, and when facing other minor interference.

Apple has actually continued to utilize its Touch ID finger print innovation in older models of iPhone, and last year presented it for the very first time on a MacBook.

Apple representatives didn’t react to a request for remark as of publishing.
