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
