Apple Cancels Use of Fingerprint Sensor on iPhone 13 Screen

Apple is reportedly canceling the use of the in-display fingerprint sensor with the Touch ID option on the iPhone 13.

Apple is reportedly ditching the in-display fingerprint sensor for iPhone along the upcoming13. This report contradicts previous reports which claimed the smartphone would come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Since the arrival of the iPhone X (2017), Apple has forgotten about the fingerprint biometric option and has begun to embed Face ID for each of its new smartphones. On previous generations of iPhones, Apple placed a fingerprint sensor on the Touch ID button. This button requires a fairly wide bezel at the bottom, which is not possible for the latest generation of smartphones with thinner bezels. 

According to Mark Gurman, quoted from Gizchina (August 24), this fingerprint solution won’t be returning to iPhones anytime soon. As many Android smartphones already use, the company is deprecating the in-display fingerprint sensor and will probably stick with Face ID for future flagship models. 

However, other speculations say the cancellation maybe for the iPhone 14. Because the leak for the iPhone 13, which will be released around September 2021, shows the notch on the screen is significantly reduced. This means there will be more free space for fingerprint biometric options.

If the leak is true, then this is the first time Apple has changed the screen design since the launch of the iPhone X in 2017. While on the back, the device comes with a triple camera setup and a LiDAR sensor. The size and thickness of the camera module are increased, but it will still bring a better imaging effect.
