An Increase In Face ID Components Are Reportedly Being Ordered

Last year Apple introduced Face ID to the iPhone X. They also ditched Touch ID in the process, and for those who still prefer Touch ID, it seems that there is some bad news because according to reports, there is now mounting evidence that Apple could ditch the feature for this year’s iPhones as well.

With the iPhone X, Apple has truly gone all in by taking away a key and signature feature on iPhones ever since the iPhone 5s: Touch ID.

2018 iPhones Could Fully Adopt Face ID If Feature Is Well-Received

With the iPhone X, Apple has done away with Touch ID in favor of Face ID, a new security feature in which users have their faces instead of their fingerprints scanned to authenticate who they are before the iPhone is unlocked as well as to verify Apple Pay purchases.
