Apple To Kill Touch ID On All IPhones In 2018, Report Says


Apple iPhone X’s Face ID and TrueDepth camera are the new talks of the town. This feature is also expected to arrive on iPad Pro next year. The newest flagship from Apple doesn’t include the Touch ID fingerprint sensor which has been the companion of the home button since years.

Apple might kill the Touch ID fingerprint sensor from all the iPhone models releasing in the future, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He called 3D sensing a “key selling point” for the 2018 iPhone models and said it’ll help Apple “capitalize on its clear lead in 3D sensing design and production for smartphones.”

However, Apple is currently facing production issues with the TrueDepth cameras, but it seems the company will eventually catch up. Earlier, there was a speculation of both Face ID and Touch ID biometric security system existing on the iPhone, but the possibility of the latter has been thinned up to a great extent by Kuo in his recent note.

Last month, Kuo said in a report that the future of Face ID would largely depend on how it’s received with iPhone X. And as we can see, the results are quite satisfying. Investing in the more advanced 3D sensing technology can help Apple take control of the territory that its competitors are yet to visit.

Anyways, coming to any conclusion to the 2018 iPhone models would be too early at this point. Till then, we shall enjoy the awesomeness of Animojis.
