There were already some rumors about the arrival of Touch ID below the screen. And now there are also two working iPhone 13 prototypes with this technique. Jon Prosser announces this. Does Apple definitely shift the focus to a better fingerprint scanner?
‘Two iPhone 13 prototypes have a working fingerprint scanner under the screen’
The first rumor appeared in October: Apple is working on the return of Touch ID . Jon Prosser previously debunked this message, but with his latest YouTube video, he is sailing nicely in the Touch ID trend.
The Apple-delicious reports that there are now no fewer than two iPhone 13 prototypes with a working fingerprint scanner under the screen. Of course, the existence of a prototype does not immediately mean that Apple actually applies the technology. However, it is a confirmation that Apple is still working on the further development of Touch ID under the screen.
With earlier devices, Apple still focused on unlocking with Face ID. With the current state of affairs and the many masks in the street, facial recognition is less practical. So it could be a logical step to indeed shift the focus to a fingerprint scanner.

In addition to the persistent rumor of a fingerprint scanner under the screen of the iPhone 13, the rumor of a 120 Hz refresh rate also returns. In addition to Ross Young, the reliable analyst MIng-Chi Kuo also reports that Apple is making the switch to a smoother screen. Kuo also indicates that the production and launch of the iPhone 13 will not be delayed in 2021. This in contrast to the iPhone 12, which was released later than planned this year.
