For Apple, they have been following up the fingerprint under the screen, and from the current situation, iPhone 13 is very likely to achieve this function.

According to foreign media reports, the iPhone 13 model scheduled to be released later this year is “probably” embedded with a fingerprint scanner under the display for identity verification, and also includes a Face ID.
Some analysts bluntly said that the iPhone 13 model will use smaller bangs, and the lidar scanner will still be limited to the iPhone 13 Pro model this year, which is consistent with the information shared by the well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo earlier this month.
The report mentioned that the smaller bangs on the iPhone 13 model will be the result of Face ID “a version that more closely integrates the current structured light system”, and added that a “bigger change” may occur in 2022. Apple clearly aims to adopt a time-of-flight architecture for Face ID, which will allow for a “smaller footprint.”
Previously, Guo Mingchi’s report showed that at least some of the 2022 iPhones may use a punch-hole display, and only a small hole can be seen on the screen, just like many of Samsung’s recent smartphones.
Looking at it now, it will be a little bit difficult for Apple to completely remove the bangs, after all, the upstream process is still unsolved.
The sudden new crown epidemic may also be a reason for accelerating Apple’s use of fingerprints under the screen. More importantly, this technology has long matured.
