Apple iPhone 8 To Have Ultrasound Touch ID Sensor
Millions of people are eagerly waiting for the unveiling of the two newest iPhones this year, the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 8. Reports suggested that the iPhone 8 will feature an OLED display that will be virtually edge-less.
Apple To Use Ultrasound Technology
If this is indeed true, then Apple would surely find a way to remove its home button without sacrificing any features and functionalities that comes with it. Knowing that the Touch ID fingerprint sensor is very important as it unlocks the phone, logs in into different services as well as access Apple Pay, Apple will surely keep it.
According to BGR, Apple just figured out a way to integrate its Touch ID into the iPhone 8's OLED screen. It will be the first time Apple will be using this surprisingly unorthodox type of technology in smartphones.
Reports also confirmed that Apple had ignored the Natural ID fingerprint sensor technology of Synaptics and Qualcomm's Sense ID tech for the iPhone 8. Instead, it will use its very own Authentech algorithm and the glass identification technology of Privaris in creating a new kind of fingerprint ID technology.
With this, the iPhone 8 will have its newest Touch ID built into its OLED screen and will use Ultrasound technology in reading the fingerprint of the user. It perfectly makes sense for Apple to use this kind of revolutionary technology as it already has a patent that explains how the Ultrasound Touch ID worls.
Reason Behind Late iPhone 8 Production
The iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus will start its production in July. However, because Apple will incorporate this new and young technology to the iPhone 8, the phone's production will start in September. According to Toms Guide, the new fingerprint ID solution of the iPhone 8 is the main reason why production is at a later date, and is moved to September.
TSMC will be the company in charge of building and producing the new Ultrasound Touch ID of the iPhone 8. This is the same company that produces the microchips in the upcoming iPhones.
