Face ID is indeed Apple’s great innovation in the field of biometrics, but the sudden outbreak, so that the face unlock encountered criticism, we all miss the traditional fingerprint, Apple also had to change the unlock logic through several iOS updates, password input experience is convenient, after all, still not comparable to biological solutions.
The iPhone 12 will be unlocked for the first time,media reported. It’s important to note that Apple isn’t simply following android’s rivals, and in fact, Apple began its patented technology reserve for screen fingerprint unlocking as early as 2014, six years after it was lost.
With fingerprints, there’s no doubt that the problem of unlocking a mask will be solved, but Apple’s goal is far from over.
Apple’s reason for doing so, the report says, is also motivated by a consistent experience for future Apple Card Credit Cards, which will come with its own fingerprint verification module. The study showed that consumers in China and France were interested in the bank card with biometric verification scheme.
Of course, strictly speaking, there is no opposite between the off-screen fingerprint and face ID, which means the two can coexist, but if Apple wants to further narrow the notch, perhaps Face ID will eventually be completely abandoned.
