Apple is expected to release an iPhone in the first half of 2021 that will replace the Face ID with Touch ID. The Touch ID power button, basically a fingerprint scanner on the power button, will be placed on the side of the device.
A report based on a research note with TF International Securities has revealed that the screen of the 2021 iPhone, which is likely to be iPhone 9 Plus or the iPhone SE2 Plus, will most likely be an LCD. It further revealed that the iPhone 9 Plus is expected to be a lower-cost model.
The report mentioned TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, saying that the fingerprint solution or the Touch ID will be capacitive and would feature a “new design” for users to have a better experience.
Kuo last month claimed that iPhone 9 Plus will have a display of either 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch, hinting that the size will range between the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone 11. According to a report, the iPhone 9 Plus is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2021.
Apple is expected to introduce a host of products in the coming months and a number of new iPhones are expected to be announced in the second half of this year. These include a new affordable iPhone, a new wireless charging mat, a pair of high-end headphones and updates for the iPad Pro and MacBooks.
