There have been recent reports claiming that Apple is not likely to bring Touch ID to iPhone 15 and instead could stick with Face ID.
Since the launch of the iPhone X in the year 2017, Apple has used Face recognition technology in its iOS devices except for devices like the iPhone SE 2nd generation which was released in 2020 and iPhone SE 3rd generation released this year in March.
Face ID is a technology which was released by Apple for iPhone X and later, to act as an alternative to Touch ID. Instead of touching on the Home Button or entering passcodes for transactions or other activities, users could use their face as a password to authenticate transactions.
This year it was rumoured that the Cupertino-based tech giant could also bring Face ID to Mac computers but Apple Analyst Mark Gurman rejected this claim and said that the current Mac devices are incompatible with Face ID and so far there is no technology developed by Apple.
Although we are sure that this claim is false, it is said that Apple could be working on this technology as they released MacBooks with a notch. This year we also saw the company rolling out a feature which recognises the user’s face while wearing a mask.
Now a few months earlier, there were reports that Apple could bring an under-display touch sensor or touch sensor on the power button for iPhone 15 along with Face ID, but recent rumours suggest that Apple is not likely to bring this feature and instead could stick with its Face ID. However, there are several claims that Apple was testing this feature and it turns out to be great.
Several users have criticized Apple for taking this decision. They say that they like to use Touch ID while unlocking their iPad with the power button and while using iPhone 14 Pro, they have loved Dynamic Island smoothly changing its shape while recognising the user. Users want both features on the iPhone 15.
As for now, nobody knows what will happen next and the tech company could change its decision in the upcoming months as usual as they did with the iPhone 14.
