Apple's iPhone 13 Might Not Feature Touch ID

Reports are also suggesting that it won’t come with any physical buttons.

The latest report on Apple‘s much anticipated iPhone 13 suggests that the device will not feature Touch ID.

“The company has tested an in-display fingerprint scanner for this year’s devices, however that feature will likely not appear on this generation,” Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman and Debby Wu stated. This might come as a surprise for some, as users have experienced issues with Face ID recognition while wearing masks throughout the pandemic (as a solution, the tech giant had introduced an iOS update that lets you unlock your iPhone using your Apple Watch).

Meanwhile, a recent patent application states that Apple is developing “capacitive sensing input devices,” which suggests that the iPhone 13 might not come with any physical buttons. In replacement, “invisible backlit holes” could be added, CNET reports.

While nothing has been confirmed so far, Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone at its upcoming event, likely to take place in September.
