2018 iPhones Expected To Ditch Fingerprint Readers

China iPhone Ban: Qualcomm Lawsuits Seek To Prohibit Sale, Production In Country

Qualcomm Lawsuits Seek Crippling Apple iPhone Production And Sales Ban In China

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple isn't likely to make a new iPhone with Touch ID in 2018.

Kuo says Apple is making the move to help set the iPhone apart from its Android rivals. He had previously predicted that it could take Android makers about two and a half years to catch up with Apple if we talk about facial recognition technology.

Reports at the time of the iPhone X's launch claimed that Apple had never wanted to place a fingerprint scanner beneath the display of its new flagship phone.

Interestingly, Kuo also suggests that all 2018 iPhones will get a full-screen design with minimum bezels. We believe this change will allow all new models to realize a competitive advantage via differentiation, on the back of an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/ Facial recognition/ Face ID/ AR applications. Apple claims that Face ID is more secure and accurate when compared to Touch ID.

Apple made a decision to ditch Touch ID in iPhone X and come up with a new facial recognition technology known as the Face ID.

Touch ID was originally introduced in the year 2013, with the release of iPhone 5s, which is still a part of Apple's 2017 models, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

As for Apple iPad, Kuo has already said that iPad Pro models of 2018 will support Face ID technology and feature TrueDepth Camera.
