The next iPhone could feature Face ID and an optical fingerprint scanner

The next iPhone could feature both Face ID and a Touch ID using an optical fingerprint scanner built into the display.

This technology has already been adopted by the likes of Samsung, OnePlus, Redmi, Vivo and Oppo.

It was reported earlier that Apple has begun an investigating into how they can introduce under-display optical fingerprint scanner, Touch ID.

Sources says the feature in testing process — it is likely that the technology will appear in the “iPhone 13.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, two unnamed former Apple employees have confirmed that a new optical fingerprint scanner Touch ID may be featured alongside Face ID.

One former worker who worked on Touch ID said that an optical version could be more reliable than the existing ultrasonic technique.

Nonetheless, this source also said that Apple would not adopt optical fingerprint sensing unless it proved to be as secure as the current Touch ID.

Touch ID is currently used in the iPhone SE, iPad, and MacBooks. Recently, Apple introduced the Touch ID sensor to the sleep/wake button on the iPad Air 4.
