Apple Touch ID

Technology giant Apple has given up Touch ID in recent years and preferred to turn to Face ID completely. New reports revealed that Apple has no plans to return to Touch ID. The company has no intention of using Touch ID until it makes the switch to an in-display fingerprint reader.

Apple won’t use Touch ID on new iPhone models
The latest report by Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman discussed Apple’s plans for the iPhone 14 and beyond. Apple, which suspended Touch ID support after removing the Home button with the iPhone X, has focused on the Face ID feature instead.

We know that Face ID has received very useful innovations recently. For example, we have seen that Face ID on Apple Watch works even with a mask, as the use of masks has increased during the pandemic period. In addition, it is possible to lock applications or perform two-step verification with Face ID.

The closest tests point to the future of Touch ID with an in-display fingerprint reader. Also, similar to the iPad Air 4, bringing Touch ID support to the power button is on the table. Still, Mark Gurman believes we won’t see an Apple product with Touch ID support “in the foreseeable future.”

Although there is no iPhone 15 with Touch ID support, it is thought that models such as the iPhone SE may include this feature in the power button. However, the fact that Face ID is becoming more and more widespread and also being adopted by users reduces this possibility.
