Apple Not Adding In-Display Fingerprint Sensor To iPhones Anytime Soon

The Apple blog 9to5Mac published a report last week that claimed, among other things, that a new iPhone set to be unveiled at Apple's September 12 event would be called "iPhone XS".

"A very small percentage of iPhone 8 devices contain logic boards with a manufacturing defect", according to Apple. Talking about specification, the iPhone XC will come with a 6.1-inch LCD display, Apple A12 SoC and 3GB of RAM. An image reportedly showing both iPhone Xs variants - seen above - was revealed at the end of August, allowing us to assume that the handsets shouldn't look too different from the iPhone X.

The publication insisted the image shown was not a mockup, hinting instead it had obtained official marketing material from Apple.

An $1,100 iPhone XS Plus? You can see in the video, an iPhone X look-alike model with Gold Color.

And, it looks like Apple and Google should be very anxious, as the Mate 20 is reported to be loaded with not just the lightning fast 7nm Kirin 980 CPU, but also potentially a gorgeous 6.9-inch AMOLED display, 8GB of RAM, and the biggest phone battery ever. The iPhone Xs will be priced the same as the iPhone 8 Plus was past year, and the iPhone Xs Max will command the same premium as the iPhone X did in 2017.

Apple Watch Series 4 is widely-presumed to be announced at the American tech giant's upcoming hardware event on September 12.

In all cases, we're obviously talking about the models with base storage - 64GB. That'd be madness to follow suit with the Galaxy Note 9, wouldn't it? Apple Pencil support? There has been some talk about Apple adding support for its Apple Pencil stylus to the 6.5-inch version of the iPhone, however rumors surrounding the addition have seemed to cool off over the past couple of weeks.

And now rumours are swirling Apple could be planning to bring a highly-requested feature to its wearable line.
