With the iPhone 13, which will be presented later this year, a fingerprint scanner will be placed under the display, which is generally well informed. Bloomberg based on sources.
Apple’s more expensive phones haven’t had a fingerprint reader since the iPhone X in 2017. The technology has been replaced by an above-screen face reader. There didn’t seem to be room for a fingerprint reader, as the home button at the bottom was gone.
Apple would now like to solve this problem by integrating the fingerprint scanner into the display. According to the sources, the Face ID scanner will also remain in the device. Many Android manufacturers have now integrated a fingerprint reader in the display in the same way.
Bloomberg Expect the iPhone 13 to receive only minor improvements, such as better cameras and processors.
The iPhone 13 is expected to be released in September this year. A successor to the iPhone SE could appear in the spring, which is in stores as a budget alternative.
New iPad Pro with miniled in preparation
According to the sources, Apple now also has a folding screen prototype, with which a competitor for folding devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold 2 can be made in the long run. Production of a fully foldable iPhone has yet to begin.
Apple is also reportedly working on a new iPad Pro that uses a minilated screen and a faster processor.
