Apple is Testing Foldable Screens and iPhone 13 With In-Screen Fingerprint Scanner [Report]

Apple is testing an in-screen fingerprint scanner for its next generation iPhone and prototyping foldable screens for the future, reports Bloomberg.

The Cupertino, California-based company has developed prototype foldable screens for internal testing, but hasn’t solidified plans to actually launch a foldable iPhone. The development work hasn’t expanded beyond a display, meaning Apple doesn’t yet have full handset prototypes in its labs, according to a person familiar with the work, who asked not to be identified discussing private matters.

Internally, Apple is said to have discussed multiple sizes for a foldable display, including one that unfolds to 6.7-inches. The screens currently being tested have a mainly hidden hinge with electronics behind the display. It's unclear if Apple will ever release a foldable device; however, if it does, it will likely be years from now.

This year's new iPhone is expected to receive minor updates; however, it could feature an in-screen fingerprint scanner. The feature is still in testing; however, it makes sense for Apple to bring back Touch ID now that COVID-19 masks prevent Face ID from working.

Finally, as we've heard before, Apple has discussed completely removing the charging port for some iPhone models now that MagSafe charging is available.
