[gearbest News] in the era of full screen, fingerprint recognition has moved from the Home key to the screen, after all, every inch of the body is too precious. This is especially true for smart wearable devices. However, recently, foreign media have exposed a patent map of Apple, which shows that Apple may add fingerprint recognition function to its own Apple Watch.


Judging from the patent map, Apple wants to integrate the Touch ID sensor into the Apple Watch screen. In this way, the fingerprint can be unlocked without occupying other extra space. It seems that Apple has been adding fingerprint recognition to smartwatches a long time ago, and I don't know how difficult the technology will be.


However, some people have questioned whether it is really necessary to add fingerprints to unlock such a close-fitting device as a smartwatch. In fact, as an important part of Apple's ecology, Apple Watch can provide identity authentication for Mac unlocking and perform separate cellular communication and call functions. Therefore, from the perspective of privacy, fingerprint unlocking is still very necessary.
