iPhone XI: Touch ID on the entire display?

ByLinky Johnson 2019-05-07 64

While previous fingerprint sensors, which are integrated into the display, only work at a specific point, a patent from Apple shows how this restriction can be circumvented. For example, Touch ID could celebrate an innovative return in the next iPhone.

The patent was only confirmed on 30 April, but it was already filed on 23 September 2016. As is customary with such patent applications, it not only takes a long time to process them, but only very few of them make the leap into a final product.


Nevertheless, the solution proposed in the patent is more innovative than the in-display fingerprint sensors previously used. Instead of an optical sensor, an acoustic sensor is used to collect information on the condition of the finger. In addition to the finger, the system should also work for a user's ear, so that telephone calls from other people's ears could be prevented.


In addition to the iPhone, Apple also mentions its use in other devices, especially the Apple Watch. This would make it possible to release payments via Apple Pay per Touch ID, which would make the use of the watch even more convenient.
