But the details of the patent are less interesting than the fact that Apple has patented this tech at all, as it suggests under-display Touch ID actually could be in the works. There are a couple of caveats though. First off, plenty of things get patented and many of them never see the light of day in products, so just because Apple is exploring an idea, it doesn’t mean we’ll see it happen. Certainly, we wouldn’t expect under-display Touch ID on the iPhone 14 range, as there isn’t much sign of that yet – though one early leak did point in that direction. But it’s possible we could see it on the iPhone 15 or beyond.

Depreciation is inevitable given the yearly renewal cycle of leading smartphones. Will Apple ever include an under-display fingerprint scanner in one of its iPhones? That is a frequently requested issue, and sources have so far disagreed on the answer. But now there’s further proof that it’ll happen, since Apple was just given a similar patent – though don’t expect it on the iPhone 14. The patent, discovered by Patently Apple, is for under-display optical fibres, which may be utilised to record fingerprint data reliably. Apple’s technique looks to be geared to produce fewer optical transmission losses than other alternatives, which might mean faster and more accurate fingerprint scanning. It is an important issue to consider. A new phone trading marketplace survey Pits for SellCell

The other caveat is that while the focus of this patent appears to be fingerprint scanning, the tech also mentions facial recognition applications, so in other words it could allow for under-display Face ID, which is something there’s much more evidence that Apple is working on. So we could see that instead (or as well), but given that leaked images show visible Face ID components on the iPhone 14 range, that too is likely over a year away.

Analysis: Touch ID would be good, but probably won’t happen. While there’s been talk over the years that Apple is working on under-display Touch ID, the most recent leaks suggest this won’t happen. So while this patent provides some hope of a Touch ID future, the bulk of the evidence is still against it.

That’s a slight shame, as there are situations where Face ID just isn’t as good, for example when you want to unlock your phone without angling it in front of your face. Still, those occasions are likely to be rare for most people, and now that Face ID works even with a mask on, there are few major drawbacks to the system, so while the option of Touch ID would be appreciated, it’s far from essential, and is unlikely therefore to be a focus for Apple.
