The iPhone 13 could see a more discrete form of Touch ID
Apple hasn’t had Touch ID in a flagship handset since the iPhone 8 in 2017. While the technology persisted with certain iPads and the iPhone SE, Apple has instead stuck with Face ID for its top-of-the-range handsets.
Overall, it works well, but if face mask use is set to continue for the foreseeable future, then having some kind of fingerprint detection as a back up would certainly be welcome. And it seems that Apple hasn’t given up on the fingerprint as a form of biometric authentication, with the company reportedly working on a new form that could make a comeback in time for the iPhone 13.
