Looking to buy upcoming iPhone 13? You will NOT get this important feature
- The Apple iPhone 13 is tipped to be launched in the coming few weeks, but fans are likely to be disappointed about one thing.
Apple is gearing up to launch its next-generation iPhone lineup. The 2021 iPhones are expected to be called iPhone 13. Apple is said to have the iPhone 13 representing 35 to 45 per cent of the total iPhone production in the third quarter of this year. Ahead of the launch, iPhone 13 leaks are coming in from every corner. While we (kind of) know what features are making their way to the next iPhone series, we might also be getting news about what Apple tested and what will not make its way to the iPhone 13 lineup.
According to a new report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple tested in-display Touch ID for the iPhone 13 series. However, the feature would not make its way to this year's models. “I believe Apple is all-in on Face ID for its higher-end iPhones and its long-term goal is to implement Face ID in the display itself (like Samsung has added an in-display camera to its new Fold),” he wrote. He added that Apple has two ways to go about Face ID and Touch ID implementations in the future.
Number one, Apple could offer in-display Face ID on the top-end iPhone models, while continuing to offer regular facial recognition with a notch design on the low-end options. Number two, the company could provide in-display Face ID on the high-end models and in-display Touch ID on the low-end ones. Hence, Apple is likely to continue using Face ID as its primary biometric solution as it evaluates how to add Touch ID again.
The iPhone 13 series is said to be announced in the third week of September according to a report. The iPhone 13 series is tipped to finally catch up with their Android counterparts and feature a 120Hz high refresh rate. Apple is said to be using LTPO displays on its upcoming phones. Further, the upcoming iPhones could feature a new design on the front. While the overall look and feel is rumoured to remain the same, we could see a smaller notch.
The iPhone 13 series is touted to sport a better camera system that will have support for video portrait mode to blur the background in videos. It could come with a laser imaging, detection, and ranging (LiDAR) sensor as well. For reference, the LiDAR sensor is limited to the iPhone 12 Pro models as of now. Apple is tipped to be prepping to produce 130–150 million iPhone units in the second half of the year.
