Apple may dump Touch ID for Face ID in 2018, report

Apple may dump Touch ID for Face ID in 2018, report

Apple will most likely stop manufacturing iPhones with Touch ID fingerprint sensors by 2018 and the security feature will be replaced by the Face ID facial recognition system.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kuo believes that Apple's transition away from Touch ID will also turn Android smartphone manufacturers away from fingerprint recognition, noting that he expects high-end Android smartphones to ditch under-display optical fingerprint recognition in favour of 3D sensing techniques.

But the recent note of Kuo stresses that Apple will be bidding farewell to Touch Id and will be fully focussed on improving its 3D sensing technology for iPhones.

Kuo has previously said that Apple is still working on developing a fingerprint sensor that could be embedded into the screen, but now he's gone back on those predictions to say Apple will use Face ID as the sole security feature.

Bruno Mars leads American Music Awards nominations
Rihanna , Drake , The Weeknd , Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars are among this year's nominees for the American Music Awards. Drake, Sheeran and Mars will be competing with The Chainsmokers and Kendrick Lamar in Artist of the Year category.

According to 9to5Mac, Kuo said that Face ID will be a "key selling point" in future iPhones.

Face ID works, in part, by projecting a dot matrix across the face to map the contours of its surface.

That's apparently what happened during Apple's big unveil last month, when Apple's Craig Federighi (senior vice president of Software Engineering) could not unlock the iPhone X while live on stage. It figures an integrated user experience composed of a full-screen design, TrueDepth Camera, facial scanning, and AR apps will help it gain a competitive advantage via differentiation. Which will differentiate between Android and Apple devices.

Now it seems Apple could trickle that design change down to the "regular" iPhone models from 2018 rather than reserve it for the premium, OLED-touting iPhone X follow-up. This is a solid idea since consumers appear to be a lot more excited about the iPhone X and not the iPhone 8/8 Plus pair right now.
