Apple to give аll 2014 iPhones and iPads Touch ID sensors

Tags: Apple

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities, each new iPhone and iPad introduced in 2014 will tout a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. As a result of the push of the security feature, Apple is anticipated to ship 120 million Touch ID fingerprint sensors in 2014.



Additionally, Mr. Kuo says that Apple will start using new chemicals for the production of the sensor module in a push to enhance its durability. Companies ASE and Sharp will handle the redistribution of the module, while Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing carries the manufacturing duties.

KGI Research estimates Apple sold 36 million iPhone 5s with Touch ID in 2013 and that the number of Touch ID-enabled devices in 2015 will jump to 233 million. Apple is yet to announce an iPad with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
