Apple is expected to release new iPhone models and most will be eager to see what new features will be offered.

But this early, one of the highly anticipated features known as the under-display touch ID is unlikely to happen.

This is according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who said that the earliest time to possibly expect the under-display touch ID feature would be by 2025.

“I previously predicted iPhones would support under-display fingerprint sensing/Touch ID in 2023 at the earliest. But the latest survey indicates new iPhones in 2023 & 2024 may not adopt under-display Touch ID. Face ID with a mask on iPhone is already a great biometrics solution,” Kuo tweeted.

For now, the best to expect is the next iPhone carrying the existing biometric features – Face ID with a mask. As far as Kuo is concerned, this is already a great biometric solution at least for now.

Hence, folks who have been expecting the under-display touch ID feature since 2020 may have to wait a bit more. Leaks have come out but it seems the technology and the cost implication of the said feature on Apple’s mobile solution line remains a work in progress.

Leakers claim that Apple was continuing its work on display-embedded fingerprint sensors in 2020. In 2021, there were also claims that Apple was testing under-display touch features.

In September, Kuo predicted that the iPhone 15 would get in-screen Touch ID. It was something he also predicted about a year before but cited that lower than expected development progress played a factor.

Finally, the analyst did not get into detail as to why the touch ID feature would not be integrated into 2023 and 2024. But with certain factors that have happened in the past years, particularly the pandemic, as well as production bottlenecks, iPhone loyalists will just have to wait.
