Apple may add under-screen fingerprint recognition to the iPhone 13 series
In the early years, Apple changed the fingerprint recognition button to face recognition for the development of full-screen technology, so that there is no need to reserve a fingerprint recognition button on the main screen for users to use.
The overall experience of face recognition is also good, but the epidemic has caused people to wear masks at any time, and the recognition efficiency of face recognition technology after wearing masks is significantly reduced.
After many users complained about this problem, Apple used algorithms to optimize and adjust it many times, but it still couldn’t restore the facial recognition rate to its original level.
For users, fingerprint recognition technology may be more reliable at this time. After all, the mobile phone can be unlocked by fingerprints at any time without removing the mask.
A former employee of Apple revealed that in fact, the company has been studying under-screen fingerprint recognition technology, and it is expected that the technology will be adopted in the iPhone 13.
At present, the under-screen fingerprint recognition technology has been used in the Android camp for a long time, and the under-screen fingerprint recognition technology plus face recognition can ensure a good user experience.
Former Apple employees said that iPhone 13 is expected to use both under-screen fingerprint recognition and face recognition, but this may not have much to do with the epidemic and wearing masks.
It is said that Apple has studied it a long time ago and may only be completed now, so fingerprint recognition technology will be brought back in the iPhone 13 launched this fall.
Of course, objectively speaking, even if it has nothing to do with the epidemic, adding fingerprint recognition will improve user experience.
Then 9to5Mac reported:
A new report from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo today says that at least one of the new iPhones introduced in 2020 will have a smaller front-facing camera cutout, making for an improved screen to body ratio and a smaller notch.
Furthermore, the report says that by 2021, three new iPhones are likely to use in-screen fingerprint as opposed to Face ID. In conjunction with this, the notch would also be removed or greatly reduced in size.
