In the past, veteran Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had predicted that Apple will incorporate under-display Touch ID in its iPhone lineup for the first time in 2022. However, he now expects the technology to debut in the second half of 2023 instead (via MacRumors).
In his latest research note, Kuo has shared his predictions for the ‘iPhone 14’ and beyond, including a hole-punch display design and a 48-megapixel wide lens for the rear camera system for next year’s flagship models.
Regarding the much anticipated display-embedded Touch ID feature, the analyst has now revised his expectations.
“Kuo said that while he previously predicted that Apple would launch its first iPhones with under-screen Touch ID in the second half of 2022, he now expects the devices to be released in the second half of 2023 due to slower than expected progress with development.”
Kuo’s research note also mentioned that Apple will launch its first foldable iPhone in 2024, instead of 2023 as previously predicted.
