Apple iPhones To Get Qualcomm’s Ultrasonic In-Display Fingerprint Scanners?


Apple is known for using top-notch hardware for its iPhones. The company's A series Bionic chipset is what drives the iPhones. However, the company is apparently in talks with Qualcomm to introduce a fingerprint scanner on the upcoming iPhones.

Apple iPhones To Get Qualcomm’s In-Display Fingerprint Scanner?


But, it's not just any physical fingerprint scanner, Apple plans to introduce an in-display fingerprint scanner. The iPhone fingerprint scanner is said to be an ultrasonic, currently offered by the Samsung Galaxy S10 series only.

Until now, Apple has primarily focused on its proprietary Face ID for security after ditching the TouchID fingerprint scanning. And it is worth mentioning that this is the only feature offered by the iPhones for biometric authentication.

Notably, most of the Android smartphones today offer at least two modes of security. While most of the affordable smartphones primarily offer a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner along, the premium ones come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. But, the majority of them also have a Face Unlock feature.

And considering privacy is a major concern in this digital era, it's high time for Apple to introduce an additional security feature on iPhones besides the standard Face ID. It is currently unknown if Apple will ditch the Face ID support on iPhones going forward to make space for an in-display fingerprint scanner. However, it is highly unlikely for the company to do so.

We can expect the company to bring this as an additional measure of security. Rumors suggest that Apple might launch premium smartphones with an in-display fingerprint scanner, while the budget models like the rumored iPhone SE will be incorporated with the Face ID only. Some more information on the same is likely to be available in the coming days.
