Cupertino strikes again: Next Apple iPhone might have fingerprint sensor on screen
Apple, makers of the Apple iPhone and iPad, seems to have found a way to attach a fingerprint sensor on a touchscreen judging by recent patent filings by the company.
The phone maker’s current flagship smartphone, the Apple iPhone 6, uses a fingerprint mechanism called Touch ID which is cited on the phone’s home button under the screen. Apple’s next iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 might have found a way to cultivate the hardware into the phone’s touchscreen rather than on a designated surface and that’s the reason why Apple recently registered a couple of patents relating to this.
Demonstrations of the patent seems to include a tablet and it looks likely that Apple will extend the mix towards the iPad when the technology breaks cover in the future. With this, smartphones might be saying goodbye to home buttons real soon as Google added the feature to unlock smartphones by double-tapping the phone screen on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS devices, making the home button a less important key.
