Apple rumored to ditch Touch ID for Face ID in all future iPhones

Apple introduced a new biometric safety feature, Face ID, with the apple iphone X. The public hasn’t had an opportunity to try it out (if you haven’t already been paying attention, the X doesn’t really drop until Nov. 4) â€? but it’s probably just the very first in a long line of Apple items that’ll use facial scanning.

Face ID might be coming to almost all future versions of Apple’s mobile phones according to a new report from dependable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo wrote in an investors note supplied to 9to5Mac that the company can totally abandon the Touch IDENTIFICATION tech used in iPhones since the 5S in 2013 in favor of the new face scanning system as early as next year.  

Kuo wrote that the new digital camera system behind Face ID, TrueDepth, is enough of a consumer incentive intended for Apple to move beyond Touch IDENTIFICATION going forward. He called TrueDepth the “key selling point” for the next generation of apple iphones, concluding that Apple will likely bring in the system across its product line in order to “capitalize on its clear direct in 3D sensing design plus production for smartphones. “

This new insight settles the matter Kuo discussed in a report last 30 days, when he wrote that Apple company would likely wait to gauge customer response to the new biometrics before completely ditching Touch ID. Kuo furthermore predicted that premium next-gen iPads will adopt the TrueDepth program, which makes sense if Apple desires to position the camera and the functions it enables as the top-level encounter.  

But the market for the Contact ID-sporting iPhone 8 has been temperate as fans bide their period for the X (although others disagree). With the pent up demand for the By in mind, Apple might have bumped in the timetable for the decision to bring Encounter ID everywhere.  

This kind of wide-scale adoption leaves the finger-print scanners of the future in the lurch. Apple’s solution to keep the home button Contact ID with a bezel-free, edge-to-edge screen was long rumored to be a display-embedded fingerprint scanner.  

Apple proceeded to go in a different direction with the By â€? but other smartphone manufacturers, most significantly Chinese company Vivo, are still rumored to be working on next-gen embedded fingerprint scanners. Kuo thinks that other companies will embrace THREE DIMENSIONAL facial scanning tech due to Apple’s influence and the high costs associated with developing the embedded scanners, that could doom the thumbprint scan over time.     

The TrueDepth system is rumored to be one of the main reasons that the X will be delayed, and some people aren’t as well keen on the idea of Apple constantly checking their face. Still, FaceID seems like one of the main draws for the highly expected iPhone X.  

We can not say for sure if the company will certainly actually be saying goodbye to Touch IDENTIFICATION forever with the next round associated with iPhones, since this is just a gossip â€? but if the X works as nicely as advertised, our faces can replace our fingerprints for good.
