Report: Apple unlikely to bring Touch ID back to the iPhone despite testing it - 9to5Mac

Since then, there have been scattered rumors about Apple potentially adding Touch ID back to the iPhone, but nothing has actually come to fruition.

Now, a new report from Bloomberg says that while Apple has tested adding Touch ID back to the iPhone, it’s unlikely to actually happen anytime soon.

In the latest edition of his Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that Apple has tested in-screen Touch ID for the iPhone and has also considered adding Touch ID to the power button, similar to the iPad Air and iPad mini.

The company has tested in-screen Touch ID and even contemplated putting it on the power button.

One possibility Gurman suggests is that Apple could move Touch ID to the power button on lower-end iPhones, such as the iPhone SE?

While this would be similar to the bifurcation of Face ID and Touch ID on the iPad, Gurman says he hasn’t “heard anything about that actually being in the pipeline?

As I’ve noted in the past, there’s also a security benefit to having both Face ID and Touch ID on the iPhone.

For instance, you could require both a Face ID authentication and a Touch ID authentication to access ultra-sensitive information.
