The iPhone 12, expected to be coming in 2020, could introduce an in-display version of Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Apple is said to be testing the in-display Touch ID for the iPhone 12 in 2020 or possibly the 2021 line-up. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously said the in-display fingerprint sensor won’t make it into this year’s models.
Plans for the iPhone 12 in 2020
Citing sources familiar with Apple’s plans, Bloomberg reports that the company is conducting internal testing on the in-display Touch ID and also testing through its suppliers overseas. However, the feature may not make it into the iPhone 12 in 2020 and could be pushed back to the 2021 models instead.
If the current round of tests for the in-display Touch ID sensor are successful, then the feature could be added to the iPhone 12 in 2020. The sources added that so far, Apple’s suppliers have shown that they could successfully integrate the feature into iPhones, but the company hasn’t mass-produced it yet.
