The date of iPhone 8 announcement i.e. 12th September is closing in and a new report suggests a bad news for the Apple lovers.
We all know that the company is ditching its traditional home button, where after failed attempts to place an in-display fingerprint scanner, many (including us) assumed that the company will take it to the phone’s back. But according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, the company is letting go of its Touch ID altogether.
The device will feature an all-screen OLED display which is inspired by Samsung’s glorious Infinity Display. The users reportedly will be able to unlock the iPhone 8 with a passcode or its new facial recognition feature.
Since the arrival of iPhone 5S, Touch ID has played a massive role in the lives of the users and its departure is quite a big deal. Maybe the company didn’t find the rear placement of the fingerprint scanner attractive or is waiting for the time when it will perfect the technology to place it beneath the screen.
Rumors suggest that the company will start the pre-orders of the device from 15th September whereas the device will hit the markets a week later on 22nd September. Reportedly, the price of iPhone 8 will start from $999.
