Apple May Drop Touch ID in the Next iPhone

Apple May Drop Touch ID in the Next iPhone

Kuo, with KGI Securities, believes that Apple will abandon Touch ID - the tool that allows iPhone owners to open their phone with just their fingerprint - for Face ID. Now, Kuo has indirectly confirmed the claims.

Kuo's recent report also suggested that Apple is focussed on 3D sensing but the report also mentioned that Touch ID will stay around and it is going nowhere.

In addition, as Apple's products are known to do, Face ID could shift the entire industry toward facial recognition as a standard. He is, however, cutting his forecast of the volume of iPhone X that will be produced this year, from 40 million units to 36 million. In any case, the Face ID function on the iPhone X, for instance, can be temporarily disabled if the buttons on both sides of the gadget are gripped. Now that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are out, and with the iPhone X coming soon, many users wonder whether they should get rid of their iPhone 7 or 6s and choose one of Apple's newer flagships.

The iPhone 8 features a slim build with an aluminum housing and a back made out of glass.

It's because the iPhone 8 is not the only new iPhone. The phones have prominent bezels on sides like we saw on previous-generation iPhone devices. The stainless steel bands further enhance the appearance.

All three phones feature a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with 1334 x 750-pixel resolution. The smartphone's bezel-less edge-to-edge display is nearly like an screen up front. It is an all-new way to unlock an iPhone. If the company includes FaceID on the smartwatch, it would have to include an onboard camera on the smartwatch, something, it hasn't done for the past iterations of the device. However, considering that its closest rival - Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 - was also priced just a few dollars less, the $999 price tag might not isolate the iPhone X that much. It works by projecting more than 30,000 infrared dots onto a face and producing a 3D facial map.

Finally, Advisor Partners LLC grew its position in shares of Sirius XM Holdings by 103.7% during the second quarter. The high and low revenue estimates for the current quarter are $1.41 Billion and $1.38 Billion, respectively.

It uses the device's front camera, along with flood lighting to scan the user's face and match it with a Face Print stored in the phone. These Animojis can be edited as well as are animated in real-time. However, the battery of the iPhone 8 supports the Qi wireless charging standard, including fast charging. It requires more time and testing to be perfected. At Rs 1,02,000 for 256GB, the Apple iPhone X sets a new high for mainstream smartphones' pricing.

Many expected that the iPhone X would be exceptionally expensive.

The quarter included about a week of US sales for Apple's iPhone 8 models, one of two new smartphone lines the company debuted last month. So why is the 8th generation of Apple's line of mobile devices worth a year of major hype?

Apple iPhone X will hit the shelves globally on November 3.

Apple's iPhone 8 is equipped with an A11 Bionic chip, and there are two storage options: 64GB and 256GB. Apple CEO Tim Cook called iPhone X "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone".
