Apple tried, but didn’t like the on-screen Touch ID for the iPhone

Every year it is said that Apple will return Touch ID to its iPhones. That was one of the rumors linked to the iPhone 13, but we already knew that this will not happen this year.

Thanks to the new report from Mark Gurman, we learned that the rumors about the return of Touch ID were well founded. The analyst confirms that Apple has tested this technology for the iPhone 13, however, the results do not reach the desired ones.

TO Newsletter Power On, Gurman confirms that the Touch ID was part of the development process of the iPhone 13. However, the results obtained are far from satisfying Apple’s parameters, so the technology will be absent in these devices.

The technology that Apple users yearn for is not yet mature enough to embark on the brand’s mobile devices. We know how important this is to the American company, so it’s no wonder Touch ID was scrapped.

Touch ID may never go back to high-end iPhone

Mark Gurman points out, incidentally, that the in-display fingerprint sensors may never make it to the iPhone. The long-term commitment will continue to be Face ID and its inclusion under the screen of your smartphones.

As various patents have hinted at, Apple is working to hide essential Face ID sensors under the iPhone screen. This is the main objective of the brand, not to include Touch ID in its most important smartphones.

Gurman reiterates the possibility that the iPhone 14 generation will be the first to feature Face ID built into the screen. This will remove the controversial notch from these models. Cheaper models will continue to carry the notch.

The next iPhone SE may also come with Face ID

Looking now at Apple’s basic range, the iPhone SE, Mark Gurman leaves a curious note. Contrary to all rumors, the analyst says that this model may rely on Face ID technology.

It is important to remember the unanimity, so far, of the presence of Touch ID in the iPhone SE 2022, which should have the same appearance as the current model. However, from the perspective of the Blommberg analyst, that will not happen.

For the iPhone 13 generation, Mark Gurman reinforces the introduction of a 120Hz LTPO display on the Pro models. Always-on display on all models.
