According to the latest information leaked from the Apple wing, the company may allow dual biometric authentication with the iOS 15 update. The new iPhone models are also expected to have Touch ID.
According to the typical release calendar, Apple is expected to release a new version of iOS in September this year, offering an early look at some of the changes to WWDC that will be made in just a few months.
The first beta version of iOS 15 will arrive shortly after the event, but a new report provides a variety of information about what’s coming with the operating system. First of all, the report claims that iOS 15 will come with a redesigned Control Center, similar to the one currently available on macOS 11 Big Sur. In other words, it is claimed that Apple plans to give Control Center a more consistent look across platforms.
In addition, Apple is reportedly working to enable dual biometric authentication in iOS 15. This is due to the fact that in addition to Face ID, it has been shown that a future iPhone model can come with Touch ID again. Apple gave up Touch ID when it introduced the new iPhone X with facial recognition in 2017, so currently the fingerprint sensor is only available on older models and the 2020 iPhone SE.
But sources close to the industry said earlier this year that Apple could bring back Touch ID on the iPhone 13 and that the company could use an approach that is already common on several Android devices. The fingerprint sensor can be placed under the screen, so it will not require a special physical button. Therefore, the report claims that Apple wants Face ID and Touch ID to work together, which will allow users to activate both features for extra security.
