Apple Rumored to Ditch Fingerprint Sensor in Post 2018 Releases


A month ago, one of the features in Apple ’s unveiling was the presentation of iPhone X’s facial recognition feature. However, Apple dropped Touch ID alongside the physical home button in the said gadget.

Kuo supposedly predicted that this technical design will be applied to all iPhones releases following 2018 and the company will entirely do away with the Touch ID system.


The analyst Kuo in his recent note to investors, obtained by Apple Insider, stated: “We believe this change will allow all new models to realize a competitive advantage via differentiation”. He also added that this would be on the basis of “an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/Facial recognition/Face ID/AR applications.”

Since the arrival of the iPhone 5s, Apple had implemented Touch ID as their mobile gadgets’ primary biometric system for authentication. On incorporation of Face ID on iPhone X, one of the palpable reasons that pushed the invention was the elimination of the physical home button to offer a path to the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge screen.
