Apple has been rumored to ditch the physical Home Button on the new iPhone and thus replaced Touch ID technology.
Rumors so far have hinted at a home button-less iPhone 8 for a while now, but little was known about how Apple was planning to go about it without sacrificing Touch ID. The patent details how the smartphone could use infrared emitters and sensors placed alongside the RGB LEDs to scan and detect the position of the finger on the screen.
Check out our video guide below to catch up on even more iPhone 8 rumours.
Apparently, Apple might not only replace the home button with a virtual home button, rather it might incorporate what it learnt with the Touch Bar, which was introduced in the MacBook Pro 2016.
At this point, it's not explicitly clear as to what biometric features the iPhone 8 might adopt.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo states that the real size of the display will be around 5.8 inches however the display area will be only 5.15 inches while retaining the iPhone 7 form factor. The tech giant joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) late last week, a spokesperson for the organization confirmed.
However, it's also possible that instead of concentrating these in certain areas the entire surface of the screen might turn into a fingerprint reader.
The analyst also revealed that battery wise, the iPhone 8 will be similar to the iPhone 7 Plus which had a 5.5 inch display.
Although there are some mobile devices that already support wireless charging, the truth is that not many smartphones have the proper technology built-in in order to be equipped with this outstanding feature.
Production of the iPhone 8 might begin sooner than predicted, with Apple suppliers due to start building it in June, according to research.
The new feature adds to another change for the next iPhone with the home button being scrapped as the phone takes on an edge-to-edge display approach.
If Kuo's report prove to be accurate, it would be enticing to Android users who have since complained about the 4.7-inch low-resolution display available on the iPhone.
