"Apple still dont know where the fingerprint sensor is gonna be" wake the f up it's mid july of course they know, just journalists dont know. They ve already started producing the new iPhone they make millions of them you think that happens in a couple weeks?
HzMeister, 11 Jul 2017no touch id = no buy.ok cya. no one cares. You probably don't even or ever had an iphone anyways.
apple haters. pathetic.
They should made under the whole screen so user can tap finger anywhere & not at specific place..
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2017Everybody in here keeps saying put the finger print scanner on the power button like Sony did.... moreRemember Apple is not Sony, USA Telco have so much power in controlling but well it's only in the states, internationally all telcos don't hold such power. Apple are the one saying and telco have to follow as they are too big and too powerful, telcos will lose sales if they don't agree with Apple, just like no bloat ware on iphone but tons of bloat in Android. Apple don't lose because internationally and unlocked set online, users will be able to buy it.

Anonymous, 11 Jul 2017Everybody in here keeps saying put the finger print scanner on the power button like Sony did.... moreSony can't use their FPS in the power button in the US because of a deal that fell through with Verizon to release the Sony Z3V. This inability to use their FPS in the power button in the US only applies to Sony.
Qualcomm's display of an in screen FPS was a prototype that won't be ready for commercial release for at least a year or two, and the writer of this article knows that, while wording the article in a disengenious fashion to try and make it sound as though Qualcomm's version as prototyped by Vivo will be springing to life any day now. Very shoddy.
Everybody in here keeps saying put the finger print scanner on the power button like Sony did. You guys do also realise that that was banned in the USA and Sony had to send out an update that deactivated this feature meaning NO finger print scanner at all.
Claudiu.Lucian, 11 Jul 2017iris/face recognition, same problems...I was comparing them to the fingerprint scanner...which... moreThat will block the logo to other coffee drinkers while you're using the scanner.
This is bad PR.
I need no hardware upgrade. Just open OS like android on my iPhone. Too much limitations in software. Release.
Do What Sony did with their fingerprint reader at the home button on their side of the phones... Dont place it on the rear please!
Kangal, 11 Jul 2017Even the best facial recognition and iris scanners aren't that good today. Apple probably is ... moreBack scanner isn't the best option, instead they should maintain the surface print.
nkwama, 11 Jul 2017They should ask fans through votes on iOSAs Steve once said, "People don't know what they want until we show them"
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2017I don't think 3D facial recognition is really that slow, or bad. It should be about the sa... moreiris/face recognition, same problems...I was comparing them to the fingerprint scanner...which is faster because in general you already have the finger where the sensor is (talking about back or side mounted, not the shit front mounted)...and with all the mainstream tech in the world, low-light will still be a huge problem for iris/face recognition...why the trouble when fingerprint sensors are cheaper and more reliable?
Even the best facial recognition and iris scanners aren't that good today.
Apple probably is aware of this.
So fingerprint is the way to go, and if they still haven't been able to embed it under the display before July, then they will go back to using a fingerprint scanner placed on the back of the device, while keeping the home button in the front on-screen.
The only problem is that the fingerprint button on the back would make it look hideous, whilst Apple could embed it into the Apple logo, this is something they absolutely won't do. So the early leaks with the three holes in the back (camera, logo, fingerprint) are likely what we might see.
PS Side mounted/power button fingerprint seems like a good idea but it isn't. There's not enough depth and surface area, unlike front/back readers.
