Apple Is Unlikely to Reinstate Touch ID, to Revamp Face Recognition Instead: Reports

Apple’s Touch ID, a biometric fingerprint recognition system for the company’s iPhone models, may not be included in next year’s iPhone 15 models. This is despite previous reports that teased the addition aforementioned feature.

According to MacRumors, adding Touch ID back to the iPhone in addition to Face ID may be especially helpful in cases where Face ID is not performing as well as it should. If both authentication methods were required, it might also add an additional layer of security.

Based on the most recent reports, Apple tested the Touch ID system to see if it would be compatible with the program for future iPhone models. The iPhone maker, however, saw no advantages in reinstating the dropped feature to the upcoming iPhone models.

Referring to a 2019 Bloomberg report, if Apple goes ahead with the in-screen fingerprint reader, the company will provide users with both biometric options, letting them verify app transactions with either one’s face or their fingerprint.

More About Touch ID

Touch ID is based on a capacitive touch sensor that can read and analyze sub-epidermal skin layers to identify each person’s distinct fingerprint to make operations like app downloads and iOS device unlocking more practical.

Users can secure sensitive information like passwords or notes with a fingerprint thanks to Touch ID, which is available in both Apple’s own apps and third-party apps.

Multiple fingerprints can be read by Touch ID, and it can interpret fingerprints in any orientation. In order to find a match and unlock the device, it then generates a mathematical representation of a fingerprint and compares it to registered fingerprint data.

Face ID Focus?

Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities, stated in 2017 that Apple might evaluate a number of new technologies, including better sensors and even a facial recognition system, to incorporate into the most recent iterations of the iPhone.

Given the radical new design of the upcoming iPhones, Kuo anticipates that Apple will explore various options for developing a new Touch ID technology to match the full screen.

As per Digitaltrends, Apple appears to prefer to use Face ID on its more sophisticated devices, only switching to Touch ID fingerprint sensors when necessary to keep prices low. The facial recognition system on modern smartphones is actually subpar, says the report, because of its inability to distinguish real faces and masks.

Apple is said to have created a simple solution to the face mask problem by incorporating the eye recognition feature into Face ID.

This new feature is expected to be available with the release of iOS 15.4. Apple customers will soon be able to unlock their iPhones while wearing face masks in public, thanks to this innovation.

There are advantages and disadvantages to switching from Touch ID to Face ID, but some users still prefer the fingerprint sensor. Despite the enduring popularity of the more traditional approach, it seems that Apple won’t be switching back to Touch ID on the newest iPhones in the near future.
