Apple may move Face ID and Touch ID under the screen

According to numerous rumors, one of the features of the iPhone 13 will be a reduced screen notch. At the same time, next year Apple may return Touch ID to its smartphones. The sensors for the fingerprint scanner should be located under the display. However, in the future, Face ID may also “move” under the screen. This is hinted at by a new patent filed by Apple.

According to available data, Apple engineers propose to place optical sensors under the screen, which should recognize two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects. The light necessary for the operation of these modules will penetrate through special translucent holes located in the display unit.

Microscopic slots will not interfere with the display of the image. Thanks to this, the company will be able to refuse cutouts or contact zones. However, the display module itself may add some thickness.

It is worth noting that this is not the first such patent of the company. Apple has registered similar ideas in the past. But so far, none of them has been implemented in serial products.

According to authoritative analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will begin introducing under-screen scanners as early as next year. Not so long ago, an expert said that the Touch ID scanner built into the display will become one of the key features of the iPhone 14.
