Apple is planning to
reintroduce Touch ID with an in-display fingerprint sensor to its
iPhones starting in 2021, a new report from noted industry analyst
Ming-Chi Kuo said.
Kuo said that over the next 18 months, a lot
of technical issues would be resolved which would enable Apple to
deliver the high-tier experience it strives for in its devices, news
portal 9To5MAC reported on Monday.
According to the report,
Apple's future in-screen Touch ID sensor would probably be based on one
of Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint readers, which are similar to what
Samsung uses in the Galaxy S10.
In addition, Kuo had earlier said
that all three iPhone models slated for release next year would support
5G technology. While 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone models would support
5G, a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone XR successor would only have access to LTE
