Just after some more days, September will be stepping in, when the most-awaited phone of the year Apple iPhone 8 will be unveiled to the world. Till now many rumors and leaks have surfaced the internet. And since there is no official confirmation we had to go by the floating news.
And now again we have got a scintillating piece of news which says that Apple is abandoning the idea of putting the Touch ID sensor in the iPhone 8 display.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the better-connected analysts out there, says Apple is abandoning the idea until next year, mainly due to lack of time.
That's according to an investor note seen by AppleInsider, though it's not clear exactly when Apple decided to eliminate the feature of Touch ID embedded under the screen. There has also has been some discussion which says that the iPhone 8 could use a small pinhole or thinned glass to get the technology working through layers of glass.
Still, it is not sure whether the iPhone 8 finger print sensor is going to reside though. One patent that came in June said that it is going to be fixed into the power button instead of at the back of the device.
Now it seems that Apple is going to use face recognition instead of Touch ID, where the biometric sensor was supposed to be fixed, the 3D face scanning technology has been spotted in the HomePod firmware, so the device will easily be locked or unlocked by detecting your face.
