Apple is about to reintroduce Touch ID, according to new evidence

Apple's recently revealed patent reveals that the corporation is working on a next version of Touch ID for its mobile devices that is hidden beneath the screen.

Apple’s decision to discontinue Touch ID (in favor of Face ID) in 2017 (save for the iPhone SE) has divided Apple users: some are happy with Face ID, while others still desire Touch ID return.

When iFans see in-display fingerprint sensors on Android devices, the discussion becomes even more heated. Last year, famous analyst Ming-Chi Ku rekindled Apple supporters’ hopes when he revealed that the corporation was still working on in-display Touch ID.

Touch ID

A new Apple patent pertaining to this feature was just discovered. The patent was filed in September 2019 and was announced by the USPTO (US Patent and Trademark Office) on Tuesday. “Under-display fingerprint sensing based on off-axis angular light” is the title of the paper.

This is the most convincing proof yet that Apple is still working on an in-display fingerprint sensor. This feature was not available on the iPhone 13, therefore fans are hoping to see it on the iPhone 14 series.

Touch ID

Furthermore, the aforementioned patent demonstrates that Apple is concentrating on optical fingerprint scanner technology rather than dabbling with ultrasonic or other non-light-based technology.

Of course, no one has yet confirmed whether or not this patent will become a reality. We do know, though, that Apple is working on an iPhone with under-display Touch ID.
