It's time for Apple to stop being so greedy in reheating a phone ready year move it to 2 years that should be more than enough time to see something worthy not these small upgrades.

I was so sure that problems will appear with the new screen and I also wonder if Apple managed to add force touch on the OLED Screen because if it was so easy then Samsung would already have copied it. About fingerprint sensor, if Apple won't be able to solve it there are other options like on the back of the phone or on the On/Off-Sleep/Awake button, one thing for sure Apple is in trouble promising before having a working model.

The S8 does have force-sensing capabilities. Samsung just doesn't appear to have done much with it.

OMG dat drama!! Let's wait till the actual iPhone comes out to know for sure. While Apple may be facing real problems or not, they'll iron out the kinks when the time is right.

This post is kind of funny and ridiculously at the same time.

Oh, come on, TouchID is NOT a show-stopper by any means, and in fact, as an owner of both a new iPhone with TouchID (my first, since I finally killed my old 4s) and a Surface Pro 4 with Windows Hello (IR camera), I can tell you that the technologies are roughly neck-and-neck right now, but Hello is far less obtrusive. That said, with a small amount of tweaking for shorter cycle times, the Win Hello system would be clearly superior - its recognition accuracy and failure rates are better than what I'm seeing with the increasingly annoying TouchID. (Really, I just wish I could get back to swipe-to-use...) I'm sure Apple can build IR face recognition using cutting edge parts and technology that's at least as good as what Microsoft fielded years ago. If TouchID dies, it sure won't bother me any, it's one of Apple's weakest features...
Great! - April 18, 2017 at 4:28pm
Just disable Touch ID and disable password. Then you can use your phone without any hassle.

Why are you doing this iC ?, sometimes under the screen and sometimes on the back and then there's none

I don't see why they can't implment touch ID on the sleep/wake button like some android smartphones, or on the back, so long as its not protruding and its concave so it doesn't get scratched. If this iPhone doesn't launch with Touch ID, simply-put, its probably not gonna leave a good taste on people, unless they implement face recognition or something that allows the user to get into their phone securely, fast, and hassle-free.
