Recent technical reports have revealed that Camel It plans to make more refined improvements to its iPhone lineup in 2021, which is why it is seeking to add an on-screen fingerprint scanner for its next iPhone.
The iPhone 12 lineup provided a series of significant upgrades including 5G support and a more modern design for the phone, however, the next iPhone series is unlikely to match this level of change, Bloomberg reports.
Engineers inside Apple consider that the 2021 iPhone lineup is another “S” version because there will be only minor hardware upgrades, and this can be partly attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has complicated the development of this product.
Apple has an interesting history with fingerprint scanners, although it was one of the first companies to publish this technology with the iPhone 5S in 2013, but it also began to diverge from it a lot from what other companies did, when it removed the sensor from IPhone high-end devices in 2017, but now plans to reintroduce it in 2021.
However, Apple still has some new features for the following iPhones. What will interest people the most is the return of the fingerprint ID (Touch ID), albeit in a more modern format.
With its focus on Face ID technology, the company has completely bypassed the transition to in-screen fingerprint sensors, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but the fingerprint scanner will not replace Face ID technology, only Apple aims to give you an alternative way to confirm your identity if You are wearing a mask, or if Face ID technology is not working as it should.
There is also another important change that is likely to come to the upcoming iPhones is the removal of the Lightning port, as some have suggested that Apple replace it with the USB-C port, but it is preferable to switch completely to wireless charging.
Given these minor changes and the fact that engineers within Apple have referred to the upcoming 2021 iPhone lineup as the “S” generation, there is a very strong opportunity for Apple to launch its next devices under the brand “iPhone 12S” instead of “iPhone 13”.
