Apple might feature an in-display fingerprint scanner in iPhone 13, foldable iPhone in the works

Apple to launch its iPhone 13 series later this year and some reports are saying that this iPhone 13 lineup might include an in-display fingerprint scanner. Though there may not be any major upgrade, the return of the in-display fingerprint reader in iPhones will definitely be a good thing for its users.

Starting with the iPhone X, only iPhone SE (2020) had arrived with an in-display fingerprint scanner. No other iPhones from then featured the Touch ID fingerprint reader for biometric authentication. In place of the fingerprint, Apple has used the face ID facial recognition.

Regarding the working behind this, it is expected that Apple will use a tweaked version of Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic sensor to bring an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor to its upcoming 2021 iPhone models. Back in 2017, when Apple has launched it’s iPhone X, Apple has come up with its Face ID detection for biometric authentication, and last year, with the launch of the iPhone SE (2020), Apple has introduced its touch ID sensor.

But at the time of Covid-19, it is quite ironic that iPhone users can’t unlock their devices using Face ID detection because of face masks, whereas in that case, fingerprint touch ID could be more beneficial for its users.
