Apple has removed the physical Home button that integrates the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and replaced it with the Face ID face unlock feature. Now, Apple has found a new solution to be able to bring the fingerprint sensor back to the iPhone but without the need of a physical Home button.
Apple is not the first company to bring fingerprint sensors to its smartphones. Apple has created a trend of integrating fingerprint sensors on mobile devices and now almost every smartphone is integrated with a fingerprint sensor.
Apple has removed the fingerprint sensor integrated into the physical Home button on the product. And they replaced it with the Face ID face unlock feature.
This change of Apple has made many people feel regretful because many people still love the feature to unlock the device with fingerprints. Many people rate this idea rather than unlock with face like on iPhone X.
Many people expect Apple to bring the physical Home button back on new iPhone versions. However, those who love using the fingerprint sensor on the iPhone still have hope. When there are signs that Apple is quietly secretly bringing fingerprint security features back to the new iPhone version.
According to Patently Apple, Apple’s solution is to equip a number of cameras hidden below the screen of the iPhone. These cameras will not be visible to the user but will be used to capture fingerprints.
Users can easily unlock iPhone or conduct payment transactions via iPhone just by touching the product screen. Apple’s new patent shows that they use different technology from other brands to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the screen. However, this is not so important to the user, but above all if this technology is applied
