Apple will produce smartphones only with Face ID starting 2018

Apple will stop manufacturing iPhones with touch ID s early as 2018 and the security feature will be replaced by Face ID system which is one of the key highlight features of the iPhone X.

    Apple will most likely stop manufacturing iPhones with Touch ID fingerprint sensors by 2018 and the security feature will be replaced by the Face ID facial recognition system. The information floats from Ming-Chi Kuo who is one of the most reliable sources of information from Apple.

    Apple will produce smartphones only with Face ID starting 2018

    According to the latest information, Apple will introduce Face ID across all the iPhones in the future with manufacturing starting as early as 2018. Kuo claims that this step would give Apple a lead over its rivals brand and Android smartphones. He had previously claimed that Android smartphone manufacturers could take years before they actually come up with a technology similar to the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X.

    Kuo wrote, "We predict all-new 2H18F iPhone models will likely abandon fingerprint recognition. We believe this change will allow all new models to realize a competitive advantage via differentiation, on the back of an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/ Facial recognition/ Face ID/ AR applications."

    Kuo believes that the Face ID facial recognition system will be the USP for iPhones throughout 2018. This could also mean that all the smartphones that Apple will manufacture in the future will boast bezel-less display and Apple will dispose of the design that has stuck around for quite some time now.

    This could also lead to the abandonment of fingerprint sensing technologies across Android smartphone manufacturers who will also eventually drift towards 3D sensing technologies. Under display, fingerprint sensors were being worked upon recently and if the aforementioned reports are anywhere close to the truth we might see smartphone manufacturers drifting away from the technology.
