Apple is not going to add an in-display fingerprint scanner in the upcoming or future iPhone lineup. Here’s the reason.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst who has a great track when it comes to yet-to-be-announced Apple devices, has revealed that the company will continue with FaceID on all its devices.
According to Kuo, FaceID on iPhone X is currently the best among the bunch and it is a main selling point for the iPhone X.Currently on the iPhone X the 3D scanning not only used for unlocking but also AR-Kit and animoji’s.

The current in-display fingerprint scanners only support OLED screens, which Apple has recently switched. Apple would continue to use an LCD display for its budget phone and is likely to use to FaceID.
Apple’s next iPhone lineup will launch on September 12, which is next week. The world’s most valuable company is expected to launch three iPhones: a 5.8-inch iPhone XS, a 6.5-inch iPhone XS Plus, and a 6-inch iPhone 9. All three iPhones will likely feature FaceID.
