The iPhone 12 Series is already yesterday’s news, so Apple has started working on new technologies to put on its next devices. The latest iPhone has significant changes from its predecessor, so for the next smartphone, the Cupertino company isn’t planning any major modifications. Perhaps the most significant feature rumored to be included in the next generation of iPhones is an under-display fingerprint scanner.
With everyone wearing a mask, making facial ID useless most of the time, a fingerprint reader is on the top of the list of priorities for Apple to include in the next iPhone. The company removed the feature with the iPhone X, making its handsets full screen.
Apple was reportedly supposed to launch a foldable iPhone in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic ruined their plans. According to Bloomberg, the Cupertino company has two prototypes of foldable screens in testing, but there is no real timeline for when an actual device will reach the market. Apparently, Apple is looking at a display that unfolds to a similar size as the 6.7-inch display on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
It’s also thought that Apple is thinking of removing the charging port from several iPhone models, making the smartphones only wirelessly chargeable. With the iPhone 12, Apple reintroduced the Magsafe, so this decision would make sense for the company to increase its wireless charger sales.
