While there is still so much unknown about the iPhones that are to launch this year, a Nikkie report claims to reveal a bunch of details about the iPhones to come in the year 2018. Reportedly, Apple will launch three new iPhone models next year, all of which will feature OLED display, as opposed to just one of the three iPhones launching this year that will come with an OLED screen.

However, Apple is known to begin work on iPhone designs years ahead in time, which means the 2018 iPhones must already being worked on. But, Apple is also known to change its mind on various decisions at the last moment. Which means, it would only be wise if you take this piece of information with a pinch of salt.

This year too, in fact in just a couple of months, Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones, one of which is believed to be an anniversary edition iPhone. Recalling the most recent report about the upcoming iPhones, according to KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Touch ID fingerprint sensor will not be embedded in the screen. Now, Kuo doesn t explicitly state that Apple is moving the fingerprint scanner to the back of the phone, and none of the latest iPhone 8 leaks we ve seen show any space for a scanner on the back. According to the analyst, Apple may omit Touch ID from its next-generation iPhone entirely. ALSO READ: Alleged iPhone 8 prototype detailed in hands-on video

This means, if the Touch ID is dropped, the only biometric authentication users will have will be an iris scanner. We sincerely hope that Kuo s lines got crossed somewhere, because ditching Touch ID in favor of facial recognition would be a massive step backward in terms of user experience. No matter how fast and accurate Apple s 3D facial scanning is on the iPhone 8, a user still wouldn t be able to unlock the iPhone without lifting it up and pointing it directly at his or her face.

In line with Kuo s report, a recent Bloomberg report to suggested that Apple is working on a 3D-sensor facial recognition technology for logging in and even authenticating payments. According to the report, the 3D sensor is quite speedy and accurate and are apparently the focal points of the feature. However, the report also hinted that the technology is still in the works, and users may have to wait longer than the iPhone 8 or iPhone 7s.

It may also be recalled that Apple had acquired a company called PrimeSense in 2013. PrimeSense dealt in facial recognition technology and since its acquisition, there have been rumors that Apple will sooner or later integrate the technology on its smartphones.
