Apple's 2021 iPhone will purportedly feature both Face ID and in-display Touch ID, according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The prediction is based on fingerprint on display (FOD) patents filed by Apple and the continued use of the technology in Android smartphones.

In terms of technology, we predict that four critical technical issues of FOD will significantly improve in 12–18 months, including module thickness, sensing area, power consumption, and lamination yield rate. Therefore, we believe that Apple will launch the new iPhone equipped with both Face ID and FOD to enhance security and convenience thanks to the multi-biometrics.

Kuo believes that Face ID and FOD Touch ID are "complementary, not competitive" since multiple biometric options would provide users an alternative method for authentication when one is unavailable or inconvenient.

GIS and Qualcomm are said to benefit from the adoption of FOD with GIS providing the "large-area sensing ultrasonic" technology and Qualcomm supplying the ultrasonic FOD module and lamination.
