What is Apple planning for iPhones this year?

Currently, Apple is focused on launching its next-generation flagship iPhones, which will not have any major changes. The report states that "Apple engineers consider the next iPhones another "S" version of the device."

One major upgrade we could get to see in this year's iPhones is the company bringing back its TouchID feature. The report does not state, if the biometric sensor will be an under the display variant or a physical variant integrated inside of the power button like the latest iPad Air. Whatever, implementation Apple goes with, it will be a nice addition, especially till we are wearing masks, as Face ID cannot detect your face beneath them.

Apart from this, Apple is also discussing moving to a portless iPhone. Earlier reports corroborate this detail.
