    Apple’s 2021 iPhone models have been in the news a lot lately. Reports in the recent past have hinted towards the company ditching the iPhone 13 naming for its 2021 iPhone models. Word is that the company is likely to opt for the iPhone 12s naming instead.

    Now, a new report says that the company’s 2021 iPhone models will come with a Touch ID feature that is built into the phone’s display. GizChina reports that Apple is testing a new biometric sensor for its upcoming iPhone models that will be built into the screen. Simply said, the iPhone 12S series is likely to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

    In addition to that, the report states that all of the 2021 iPhone models will come with smaller notches owing to a more compact camera module. Furthermore, the report says that the LiDAR sensors that were introduced in the Pro series iPhone models last year will continue to be available in the Pro series models this year as well.

    As per a separate report by the publication, the iPhone 12s Pro model has been spotted in a pink colour variant. The image shared by the publications shows that the phone will come with a triple rear camera module wherein the individual lenses appear as a single block rather than three separate units. The report states that they appear to be covered with tempered glass that results in a more solid overall look. The overall shape of the rear camera module, however, remains the same.

    In addition to this, the upcoming iPhone series will come with an improved Face ID system consisting of a more compact time-of-flight (ToF) sensor and a more energy-efficient display by Samsung with 120Hz refresh rate. Beyond this, not much is known about the upcoming iPhone series as of now. We’ll keep you posted.
