Reports say that Apple’s iPhone 13, which is scheduled to be launched later this year, will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Apple’s iPhone 13 is going to be launched later this year and reports suggest that Apple is finally about to bring an in-display fingerprint scanner for the devices. According to a Bloomberg report, Apple can bring back fingerprint-based biometric authentication on the iPhone 13 but embed it on the screen. Apple has used fingerprint scanners before, but they were last embedded in the home button on the iPhone SE 2020.
If Apple brings an on-screen fingerprint scanner, it will be a major trend of underperforming fingerprint scanners in Android smartphones with normal performance.
In addition, the iPhone 13 is expected to retain Face ID and is expected to come up a notch. Reports also suggest that Apple may hit the charging port in some iPhone 13 models, possibly the Pro variant, allowing users to opt for wireless charging solutions and MagaSafe accessories.
The call to remove the charging port from some iPhone 12 models isn’t really surprising, given that Apple made the first few years ago to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from its devices. Apple was also the first company to remove the charger and headphones from the box.
While other smartphone manufacturers have followed Apple’s footsteps, removing the charging port may be more of a problem. For one, this would mean that iPhone 13 buyers would have to buy wireless chargers that make the wires they currently have redundant.
In addition, the lack of a physical port also means that users will not be able to connect the phone to a PC or Mac, something that needs to be done to make a data backup, debug their smartphone, etc. and Apple has a lot of ground. is. Cover When it comes to wireless charging, the current MagSafe solution is fast enough that Xiaomi and Oppo already have.
The iPhone 13 launch is months away and by the time we close the date, we’ll definitely have more information.
