Apple is working on In-Display fingerprint sensor on iPhone 13 and Foldable iPhones
Apple is currently testing their upcoming foldable iPhone and also their next iPhone 13 (Pro Max, Pro and Mini) in-display fingerprint sensor. The test is still in its initial stages but it does give us a better idea on what and when to expect the smartphones when it is officially available in the global market.
So far Apple has talk through the foldable screen sizes, including one that unfolds to a size of 6.7-inch display on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Apple's phone outline are said to have a "mostly invisible hinge" with electronics situated behind the display rather than two panels separated by a visible hinge.
Bloomberg reports that a foldable iPhone is likely "years away" or "ultimately may never be introduced," with Apple mostly targeting on the updates to its flagship iPhones and iPads that are coming in 2021.
There won't be any major design changes on the iPhone 13, as the 2020 iPhone models marked a significant technology and design overhaul. Apple engineers are said to consider the 2021 iPhones as an "S" version of the 2020 models. Apple has in the past used the "S" nomenclature in years where iPhone models featured more minor updates.
It is expected that the design change will be minor, Apple is testing an in-screen Touch ID fingerprint reader that would alter the designs to the biometric systems that Apple has used for flagship devices since the launch of the iPhone X.
Both the Touch ID and Face ID will be present for the upcoming iPhones, and it would be convenient for iPhone users who cannot unlock their iPhones with facial recognition when using masks.
Apple has also considered removing the charging port for some iPhone models in favor of wireless charging, and that appears to be something that's still "to be decided"or the 2021 iPhones at this time.
Bloomberg's also confirms that AirTags are expected to see a 2021 launch and it reiterates iPad Pro rumors that suggest Apple is working on an updated version with a mini-LED display and a faster processor.
