The three new iPhones which will be launched by iPhone this year in September includes the iPhone 8 smartphone. As the excitement about the launch of iPhone 8 is increasing among users, the company is giving a blow to the user’s minds. Andy Hargreaves, Equity Research Analyst at Pacific Crest Securities claim that the iPhone 8 device may drop Touch ID feature from the device.
The report says that if Apple is not successful in embedding fingerprint sensor below the display over a span of 1 month, the iPhone 8 device may exclude the core Touch ID feature.
According to past reports, the upcoming iPhone 8 device will be available in two different versions, the first version will have Touch ID technology below the home button and the second version will have bigger display screen compared to iPhone 7 device. The iPhone 8 device will offer a near bezel-less front with the bezels measuring only 4 mm. The leaked renders have shown the iPhone 8 device having no home button in front. Integrating the Touch ID below the display of iPhone 8 is seen as the biggest hurdle that is limiting the production of this smartphone.
Also, the iPhone 7 was released without the home button and a mechanical button has replaced this home button. The previous version of iPhone 7 called iPhone 6s was shipped with 3D touch feature that is used to render the functionality of the home button.
The Touch ID is the core functionality of iPhone device. With this feature, the user can login into different apps, unlock their phone, authenticate the Apple Pay purchases etc.
The Hargreaves report also states that in order to officially launch the phone in September, Apple either has to proceed manufacturing process without this core functionality or have to delay the launch of iPhone 8.
However, by excluding Touch ID feature, iPhone 8 device will depend mainly on 3D sensing technology to authenticate the user and other transactions.
