It is expected that all smartphones iPhone, which will be presented in 2018, will lose the fingerprint sensor
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) three weeks ago thought that the future of fingerprint sensor Touch ID will depend on the reaction of users to the facial recognition system Face ID.
In a fresh appeal to investors, he categorically stated that the final rejection of the use of Touch ID will happen in the next year. Now the analyst has no doubt that all iPhone models that will be presented in 2018, will be equipped only system Face ID.
Recall the past four years, with the iPhone 5s, Apple proposes to use to unlock smartphones and mobile payment confirming the fingerprint scanner Touch ID.
Senior Vice President, software development, Apple’s Craig Federighi (Craig Federighi), earlier said that all skepticism will disappear after the users themselves will feel all the charm of the new system.
iPhone X, which is the first smartphone with Face ID, should go on sale 3 November.
