Today we’ve learned that iPhone 14 will bring back Touch ID and will hold onto Face ID. Everyday users of the Android mobile operating system are often surprised to discover some features that have been present in their platform for years but simply do not exist in iOS.
Previously Apple had Touch ID, as a circular notch placed at the bottom of the device but apart from the display.
Then they made the leap to Face ID and left this option behind to quickly unlock the mobile phone. But the iPhone 14 could bring back this classic.
iPhone 14 will bring back Touch ID
Renowned leaker Mark Gurman has just published a report from Apple’s offices. According to these reports, the company is testing a new fingerprint sensor.
The intention would be to implement Face ID back for the iPhone that Apple will launch in 2022. Gurman’s informants claim in fact that Face ID would condense its sensors in the notch of the front camera.
This space would be much smaller than on the iPhone 13. But with sufficient dimensions to place the necessary components to bring back this unlocking option.
Face ID on the other hand would not be eliminated from iOS. But now both alternatives would be offered as alternatives for unlocking the iPhone 14.
The return of Touch ID has become an almost urgent matter for Apple in the context of the global pandemic. Permanent use of face masks has made it almost impossible to use Face ID without problems.
