Say goodbye to Touch ID, because Face ID could be the future of all Apple iPhones in 2018.
The facial recognition is a new feature that will be available on the upcoming iPhone X, and KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that it would take years for Android manufacturers to produce the same technology. Apple is focusing on the new authentication method as it means that the company has an edge over Android smartphones, and Kuo also predicts that all iPhones in 2018 will feature a full-screen design, similar to the iPhone X. This means that the Touch ID that debuted in 2013 will no longer be available, and that no models with the iPhone 8/8 Plus design will be produced.
It remains to see how Apple will use the unique feature in the future, but for now, take a look at the Animoji feature that will be available with the new iPhone X.
