    The expected launch of iPhone 15 series in the year 2023 is already creating buzz in the market. With several leaks, rumours, and reports, fans are trying to find out what the upcoming iPhone series can have. Several reports in the past have suggested that Apple is likely to reintroduce Touch ID on iPhones. It was expected that the iPhone 15 series may bring the Touch ID back. However, there was no authentication of the same. But it may well appear on an iPhone SE. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, in his latest edition of Power On newsletter has said that he does not expect Touch ID to return with the iPhone 15 or other flagship models in the coming future.

    “Over the past few years, there have been discussions within Apple about bringing Touch ID back to high-end iPhones. The company has tested in-screen Touch ID and even contemplated putting it on the power button. At this point, I believe Face ID is here to stay and Touch ID won't be returning to flagship iPhones—at least anytime in the foreseeable future", Gurman writes in the newsletter.

    Gurman, however, added that a iPhone SE model with Touch ID is still a possibility. And if it happens, this bifurcation of Touch ID and Face ID will be similar to Apple's iPhone lineup. Gurman says that he has not “heard anything about that actually being in the pipeline." It can be known that Apple removed TouchID with iPhone X.

    Not sure which
    mobile to buy?

    Gurman had earlier informed that Apple is likely to skip the October event and the expected iPad, MacBook, and Apple TV product launches might be announced with press releases, media briefings, and updates to Apple's online store.

    Apple is expected to launch M2 and M2 Pro Mac minis, M2 Pro and M2 Max 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, and M2 11-inch and 12.9 inch iPad Pros, among others in the month of October.
