Latest reports confirmed that Apple is still having a hard time incorporating the Face ID technology and this remains a hurdle for them until now. Because of this, the company might retain their under-display fingerprint technology while the Face ID will be incorporated next year in their iPhone models.
A new report from GSM Arena has analyzed the future of Apple's biometric technologies and sadly, the Face ID might not be included in the features of the latest models of iPhones later this year. If this Face ID will be well-received by consumers when the iPhone X will be released later this year, then there is a possibility that the company will adopt a TrueDepth front-facing camera and Face ID in all its iPhone devices.
With revelations from the latest report, it was claimed that the TrueDepth camera can create many innovative applications and Face ID is one among them. This year, the Face ID will only be limited to the iPhone X and this technology will be incorporated into all 2018 iPhone models next year.
The reason for this is due to the fact that the in-display fingerprint technology is still a technological hurdle for Apple. The 3D Touch feature makes the full display panel denser and this leads to the reduction in the accuracy and scan-through of an under-display fingerprint reader.
But according to 9to5mac, the presence of this Face ID is dependent upon the response of the users and the consumers to this technology. If this Face ID will fail to impress the consumers, there is a chance that Apple will turn its focus to the development of under-display Touch ID. But even if that is the case, the company still has to look for ways in order to solve the above-mentioned issue.
The possibility if Apple will return to Touch ID has been a question since the announcement of the iPhone X. Also, it looks like the company is not even sure of an answer to that question since it relies largely on how the consumers will respond to the Face ID.
