The next iPhone could feature a Touch ID sensor on the rear


Reliable iPhone leaker Sonny Dickson simply shared new design schematics for the upcoming iPhone. The most attention-grabbing factor is that the leak clearly reveals a spot on the rear of the gadget for the Touch ID sensor.

Rumor has it that Apple goes to launch three new gadgets in September — upgraded variations of the iPhone 7 with higher specs, and a model new telephone with a brand new kind issue. This leak reveals this top-of-the-line telephone.

It options two cameras on the again. This time, they might be oriented vertically as a substitute of horizontally. This isn’t actually groundbreaking.

Aesthetically, Apple is shifting again to an industrial design with sharp angles. It seems just like the case of the gadget might be a single piece of aluminum, extra just like the iPhone SE.

It’s exhausting to see the antenna strains on these schematics. But Apple isn’t counting on glass panels (in contrast to on the iPhone SE). At the underside of the gadget, you’ll be able to clearly see the Lightning port and no headphone jack.

More curiously, the size of the gadget present that this iPhone might be half a centimeter wider and a centimeter taller while you examine it to the iPhone 7. Except for the highest a part of gadget with the selfie digicam and speaker grill, Apple needs to interchange the entrance of the gadget with an enormous display screen. The show might be taller however roughly as vast because the one on the iPhone 7. I imagine taller screens are the way forward for smartphones.

That’s why Apple needed to do one thing in regards to the Touch ID sensor. The firm needs to embed the Touch ID sensor into the display screen. But this might not be prepared for prime time simply but. Just like most Android telephones on the market, Apple may transfer its finger print sensor to the rear of the gadget.

This isn’t as elegant as having all the pieces on the entrance aspect if you wish to use your telephone whereas it’s in a dock or on a desk. Based on my expertise with latest Android telephones, you get used to it in a short time. So it might be an appropriate compromise. As at all times, Apple may nonetheless be experimenting with a number of design choices.
