Apple iPhone 12 could mark the comeback of Touch ID as the biometric security feature but with an upgrade of an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Cupertino based tech giant launched Face ID in 2017 but it doesn’t mean that end of Touch ID as authentication will never happen in the future.

The fingerprint-based security feature has been since rumored for many future iPhones and iPhone 12 could be the device that brings it back. The upcoming 2020 iPhone lineup known as Apple iPhone 12 series will have an in-display fingerprint sensor as the main security feature.
iPhone 12 Specs, Security Features, Rumors: Apple to bring back Touch ID
Apple joined the bezel-less smartphone group with iPhone X in the year 2017 and with that, the home button and the fingerprint sensor and Touch ID were also dropped off. But every latest flagship smartphone has now touch ID without bezels as the fingerprint sensor now comes under the screen without any additional space. Apple could also join the trend and the upcoming iPhone 12 could have a fingerprint reader build beneath the display screen.
As per the reports, Apple has started to work on developing its own in-display fingerprint scanning feature. It could also mean that Apple iPhone 12 will have both touch ID and Face ID as the authentication factor. But the in-display fingerprint sensor is only in the testing phase at Apple HQ and it means that the feature could come up with the next model after iPhone 12.
Apple iPhone 12 September 2020 Release Date Possible?
