The iPhone 8 Might Not Have a Fingerprint Scanner

When it comes to Apple products, people look forward to leaked pictures. We get a glimpse of the new model and features, which make us even more excited for the actual release. The first leaked photos of the iPhone 8 showed an edge-to-edge screen and no home button.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted yesterday that the new Apple iPhone won’t have a fingerprint scanner either. Why? because Apple does not have the necessary technology to place the fingerprint scanner underneath the screen. People use their fingerprints for banking, authorizing App Store purchases, and activating Apple Pay. Without the fingerprint scanner, the brand may be cutting off some of its convenience features. Aside form the edge-to-edge OLED screen, the phone features 2.5D glass, long buttons, dual cameras, and a vertical rear camera.

Apple does have the option to place an on-screen fingerprint reader but the technology is still slow and they might not have enough time for their fall launch.

Can you love it without the fingerprint reader or will you be keeping your current model?
