Apple is planning to reintroduce Touch ID with an in-display fingerprint sensor in its 2021 iPhones, a new report from noted industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed. 9to5Macreports that the analyst says the technology will be included alongside Apple’s Face ID facial recognition technology in two years time, and that the two security methods will compliment each other to offer a unified experience.
Unifying the Touch ID and Face ID security systems is an intriguing idea. Potentially, this opens the door to some kind of two-factor biometric authentication, meaning a potential hacker would have to imitate both your face and your fingerprint to gain access to your phone.
