A close source to Apple claimed that the upcoming iPhone series, possibly the iPhone 13, could come with a fingerprint sensor engraved under the smartphone screen, as an alternative to Face ID.
It is worth noting that there is a leak appeared last year that reported the series of iPhone 12 could come with an under-display fingerprint sensor, but a source inside Apple admitted at the time that this technology would likely be included in the iPhone 13 series. New leaks confirm that prediction.
Twitter account L0vetodream, which is certified to have provided minute details about the iPhone 12, HomePod mini and Apple Watch 6 , confirmed that information as well.
Apple filed two patents in July 2020 to discuss the mechanism of detection and recognition of fingerprints as well as reading them using the sensors built into the OLED Display.
Evidence strongly suggests that Apple is striving to achieve this, and the only question is whether or not the technology will be ready for phones next year.
iPhone 12 was revealed last week, and there is nothing new that still continues to rely on Face ID to unlock the phone, which has become less in line with an era of wearing masks and masks on the face.
The inclusion of the fingerprint sensor under the display will be convenient, especially when you are outside the home, while keeping Face ID to unlock the phone faster at home, which is very convenient.
In fact, Apple can offer its users both options in order to have more safety for its users.
Face ID does have some potential security issues, but Apple has patented a solution called Subepidermal Imaging that will scan the veins in your head to make sure you really are. That, along with the claims of the fingerprint sensor, it seems that the upcoming iPhone 13 will be a completely unlocked phone.
All details of iPhone 13 at the moment
Yes, maybe we are almost anticipating events, considering that the iPhone 12 is still a newborn, but the leaks about the iPhone 2021, other than the fingerprint sensor in the screen, were really exciting and we had no choice but to show you it.
Jon Prosser, a well-known tech blogger, said in June 2020 that the iPhone 13 or 14 could be a foldable phone with two displays linked by one hinge, stainless steel edges, and a small hole on the external display for the Face ID sensor instead of a notch.
On the other hand, a leak from Iceuniverse indicated that the iPhone 13 will be thinner and thinner than the current generation, but it will retain the same form factor as previous iPhones, and the notch will also house the front camera.
In another major leak for the iPhone 13, the founder of DSCC, a company specialized in screens, Ross Young, said that the iPhone 13 series will have OLED screens that come with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a TOF sensor for gesture navigation without touch, in addition to a triple rear camera.
