It looks like we may have to wait a good while before Apple introduces under-display Touch ID sensors to its iPhones. The feature was somewhat expected to make an appearance in the iPhone 13 line-up, but didn’t meaning we’re hoping to see it in the iPhone 14.
However, reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is shutting down the rumors by claiming that iPhones with under-screen Touch ID likely won’t arrive until the second half of 2023. This means that the feature might be added to the iPhone 15, likely to arrive in two years.
Although Kuo had initially predicted that Apple would implement the under-display Touch ID in the second half of 2022, the analyst now expects a significant delay due to “lower than expected development progress,” and noted that “this will hurt iPhone shipments in 2022 and 2023” too.
