The analyst amended his prognosis in a tweet on Wednesday, stating that he had previously predicted that screen-embedded fingerprint sensor technology might arrive in iPhones as early as 2023, but that his projection has now been revised.
Apple will not release a new iPhone with In-display Touch ID, according to the latest Kuo survey of supply chain information. “Face ID with a mask on the iPhone is already a great biometric solution,” according to Kuo.
It’s been believed for years that Touch ID will be included into the display. Apple, for example, was rumored to be working on such a technology back in 2020, according to leaks. Apple is rumored to be testing the function until 2021.
In September, Kuo projected that the “iPhone 15” would include in-display Touch ID. This number was a year behind schedule when it was supposed to debut on the iPhone 14 at the time.
In his amended estimate, the analyst did not provide a reason why Touch ID will not be available on Apple handsets in 2023 or 2024. However, based on earlier knowledge, the culprit could be a production constraint.
