TouchID will reportedly return to the iPhone in 2021 with a new in-screen fingerprint scanner, an Apple analyst has predicted.

TouchID  was the name given to Apple’s fingerprint recognition feature, which allowed iPhone users to unlock their devices, make payments and access sensitive data by touching the Home button at the bottom of the screen. 

In 2017, Apple started  replacing Touch ID  with  Face ID  , its facial recognition feature that allows iPhone users to verify their identity with just a look. 

Face ID is now the default authentication method on the iPhone X, XS, XR and third generation iPad Pro.

However, many iPhone fans have lament the loss of TouchID, claiming that FaceID is not as convenient or reliable.

Now renound Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a report, seen by 9to5Mac , claiming Apple will release an iPhone in 2021 featuring both FaceID and TouchID on the same device.
