the next iphone may have no fingerprint reader, and other rumors
According to analyst reports and leaks from Apple\'s supply chain, rumors have taken over Apple\'s next iphone.
Like all speculative reports, it is better to bring these ideas with you (or shaker)of salt.
Apple did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Here\'s what people are saying and how we do it.
For a long time, people have been expecting the next high --
The final version of the IPhone will have a new screen called OLED, the abbreviation for \"organic Light\"emitting diode.
The OLED screen has a brighter color, a deeper black and a better battery life.
But they are also harder to produce, especially Apple\'s demand for iPhones.
New advertising reports suggest that Apple will eventually completely switch to OLED screens from the 10th.
The company will then release three OLED models in the second half of 2018.
The reports are mainly based on an article in Nikkei Asia Business Review, which cites anonymous sources in Apple\'s Asian supply chain.
This has some meaning.
Over the years, there have been reports that Apple wants to switch to OLED screens.
These screens are the standard for iPhone competitors, especially those from Samsung --
A top OLED screen manufacturer is also Apple\'s supplier.
According to Nikkei News, Apple has also invested in LG\'s OLED manufacturing department, indicating that Apple is interested in finding ways to produce screens on the size of the iPhone.
Touch IDApple is expected to be high-
Terminal iPhone with edge support-to-edge screen.
But this change eliminates the location of the fingerprint reader.
This makes some wonder if Apple will move the reader, embed it in the screen, or throw it away altogether.
Guo Ming, Apple analyst at KGI Securities, wrote in a recent report that Apple will not put a fingerprint reader on the display
Many people want the company to do something more consistent with the current design.
But the report did not indicate where the fingerprint reader might go.
Advertising has become more speculative, and the popular YouTube channel everthingingapplepro has drawn attention when posting detailed metal adsand-glass mock-
It said the high-end iPhone was sent by a Chinese handset maker.
The virtual phone does not have a fingerprint reader on the front of the phone, although it does display a box with a cut on the Apple logo on the back of the phone.
This could mean that, like on a competitor\'s smartphone, a fingerprint reader might go there.
Or this case may have been designed just to show the Apple logo.
Still, it\'s surprising to see Apple give up its fingerprint reader, especially given how hard the company is pushing for Touch ID and how important it is for phone login and purchase.
If Apple had dug out the fingerprint reader, what would it be replaced?
Facial recognition is a popular guess.
It has been reported that Apple is testing advanced facial recognition as an authentication method.
A Bloomberg report quoted anonymous sources familiar with the product as saying facial recognition could be used to unlock phones, buy goods and open secure apps.
TechCrunch has found a patent that says Apple is working on a technology to scan a face using a mobile phone camera
Even if the phone fell asleep-
Unlock the device.
Facial recognition makes a lot of sense as a validation tool, especially if Apple gets rid of the Touch ID.
It will provide another option for biometric authentication, which many believe is more convenient than passwords and passwords.
It is rumored that the facial scan Apple is developing may be more consistent than the fingerprint reader, for example, when the user\'s finger is wet, the fingerprint reader will work.

In addition, Qualcomm hopes to ban some iPhone imports, and the patent dispute with Apple Musk has been escalating. Musk said Tesla will build an electric storage system for Australia in 100 days.
Now, we\'re going to see outdated technology.
