Apple Working on iPhone With No Home Button, Fingerprint Sensor Integrated Into Display?

Posted by · 17972 views · Translate

Apple is reportedly working on future iPhone designs with no button and ultra-thin displays that integrate fingerprint sensors, reports DigiTimes.

Apple is internally developing touch and display driver integration (TDDI) single-chip solutions for its iPhones, according to sources in Taiwan's IC design industry. The TDDI single-chip solutions will also come with integrated fingerprint sensors, said the sources. The integrated design would fit into future iPhone designs – models with ultra-thin and ultra-narrow displays, and with a whole plane design eliminating the Home button.

DigiTimes notes that the expansion of Apple's in-house design business could have a significant impact on the global semiconductor industry. Apple already develops CPUs for its mobile products including the Ax and Sx line of SoCs.

Apple Working on iPhone With No Home Button, Fingerprint Sensor Integrated Into Display?

So easy. Just get rid of the bottom bezel. Hey apple, why are the bezels so huge on the iphones?! You state we need one hand use for excusing not making a phablet then you make a phablet but it's harder to hold than an equally screen size any other brand. What happened to one hand use?? And the back button needs to be on the bottom. The top left corner is hard to reach. Sorry but you have to copy Samsung, they have been doing the phablet for a long time and they are doing it right. Don't be afraid to copy. Everyone copies each other. Now back to the subject. Make the screen to the bottom and add the virtual home button and people usually add from the handicap section of the settings. Simple as that.

The one hand use on iPhone is still here, that's why Apple finally came with the solution that has been mentioned countless times on the 6 and 6 plus. One hand use is what happened here. Why would Apple put anything else on the bezel? Not once has anything been added to he bezel, but haven't you tried adjusting it yourself in the setting. If here were to fix it if they haven't yet, then it's going to be put on screen since that's how it was always done, but hence you can just swipe from the left side of the iPhone to do that or use Siri. Samsung may have done phablets first but iPhones took that advantage far further ahead. They aren't afraid to copy but it's a long shot to copy this. This is what simple is all about!

It is coming for sure, especially after they have developed a touch force display for watch.

Maybe they will put in the side again like in Apple Watch

Why would they do that? I understand that the 6 repositioned the button but it's still on the side. That logic isn't like the one you're hinting at, but the phone would have to be bulky and built like the watch in order to do that. Just reasons.
