Will Apple’s Face ID kill the password? One might assume that if the biometric advance of Touch ID didn’t do it via fingerprint, the more-advanced facial recognition of Face ID incorporated in recent iPhones just might. However, experts tend to agree passwords aren’t going away anytime soon. We’ll get into the reasons why below, which will help explain why password-management security apps like Dashlane remain crucial to your online security.
Apple’s highly anticipated addition of 5G modems to the 2020 iPhone lineup may not end up costing customers extra after all.
TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that his supply chain sources indicate that the four 5G-capable 2020 iPhone models will be priced similar to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, even though 5G components are more expensive.
One of Apple’s key suppliers may have just found a way to free up a bit more space inside the 2020 iPhones.
Murata Manufacturing claims it has created ultrasmall capacitors that are one-fifth the size of current capacitors. With 5G capable iPhones set to gobble up battery power next year, Apple needs every extra square millimeter it can get.
Next year’s iPhone could be the first with an under-screen fingerprint scanner. Apple is reportedly meeting next week with a supplier for the components necessary to build Touch ID into the display of the 2020 iOS model.
Apple doesn’t plan to completely kill Touch ID anytime soon, according to Greg Joswiak, Apple’s VP of product marketing.
In a recent interview discussing the progress of Face ID, Joswiak championed Touch ID on the iPhone 5s as the first mainstream biometric security system. Even though Face ID is being added to more devices, Joswiak hinted Touch ID will still be hanging around for a while.
