Face ID will come to all Apple devices by 2018

Apple plans to place the Face ID on all devices that will be featured since 2018, and then completely shutting down the Touch ID, fingerprint scanning technology.

This is at least the KGI analysis company’s estimate, which analysts usually have very good information. The relative report to the investing public -leaked to the Apple Insider website- assumes that Apple will want to take full advantage of the one it has gained over Android devices with face recognition technology –“Face ID”-, based on the new True Camera Depth.

As a result of this decision, Apple will cease to use Touch ID technology from 2018, that is fingerprinting to unlock the iPhone. Remember that the Touch ID made its first appearance with the iPhone 5s four years ago and has since been considered the crown in biometric device unlocking solutions.

The point is that the iPhone X is not yet commercially available and apparently no one (except Apple) can know the capabilities of the new Face ID technology. However, Apple’s enemies and friends admit that any new technology introduced by the company almost immediately enters the microscope of the competition, in order to show something similar and possibly improved. In the KGI’s analysis, however, it is noted that Android device manufacturers are already looking at similar biometric solutions.

Prior to the announcement of the iPhone X and Face ID, the Android side looked at ways to improve fingerprint recognition sensors, while there are reports that significant research is being done to place the  sensor “inside” the device screen in an effort to further minimize the margins of the screen.

Perhaps not by accident, the strong rumors in the past few months that Apple is considering how to place the Touch ID inside the screen has played a role in turning Android manufacturers in this direction. However, the KGI report refers to a number of Chinese manufacturers expected to present such solutions in the first half of 2018. Face ID solutions are set to be seen by Android manufacturers in the second half of 2018 or early 2019, according to the KGI analysis.
