Apple brought its Touch ID fingerprint detection technology last year with the launch of iPhone 5S. Last month, we reported that Touch ID may come to new iPads soon. And lately, an analyst has mentioned that Apple will include Touch ID not only to new iPad, but also to all new iPhone.
The Touch ID sensor of Apple is touted as highly accurate and effective. According to Apple, it can read 360 degrees, even beyond the uppermost layers of the finger. The best thing about this sensor is its placement. It is essentially a part of the Home button. So when you try to unlock your handset, you press the Home button and if the handset recognizes your fingerprint, it grants you access. For your kind information, the best feature of Apple’s Touch ID sensor is it doesn’t work with a ‘dead’ finger. Besides, for safety reason, the data of these fingerprints is ‘never stored on Apple servers or backed up to iCloud.’
However, since Touch ID sensor was released with iPhone 5S, people have been expecting that Touch ID fingerprint technology would be brought to next version of iPhone and iPads. And KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple will include Touch ID to every new iPhone and iPad including 4.7″ and 5.5″ new iPhone 6, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 2 with Retina display. He also said that Apple’s Touch ID module should see shipments soar 233% in 2014.
However, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2014 will start on June 2 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. Lets wait and see whether or not Apple brings Touch ID to all new iPhone or iPad at WWDC 2014 and if analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s prediction becomes true.
