Apple recently launched the iPhone 15 series and the iPhone 16 rumors have started circulating on the internet. Most of them might be true and some might remain as rumors. In that context there are speculations that the iPhone 16 series might come with in-screen Touch ID fingerprint authentication technology.

New reports suggest that the iPhone 16 series will not feature Touch ID due to security reasons. The report claims that due to security concerns Touch ID will not be included in this series.

According to information from an integrated circuit expert on Weibo in a new post Weibo explains that most of the equipment originally used to manufacture the chips required for Touch ID for the iPhone is permanently shut down. The only remaining unit is used for the third-generation iPhone SE. This report suggests that Apple has no plans to launch the iPhone 16 series with Touch ID as the authentication method on iPhones in the future. Now, it is worth less to assume that the iPhone 16 series will have Touch ID.

MacRumors research suggests that the fourth generation iPhone SE will feature Face ID while rumors are circulating that Apple is also working on under-display touch fingerprint technology. This technology is anticipated to debut around 2026 coinciding with the timeframe when Apple purportedly plans to integrate Face ID under the device’s display.

It’s worth noting that Weibo was the first to report that the iPhone 14 would come equipped with the A15 Bionic chip, with the A16 being exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models. They recently suggested that the chip designed for the upcoming iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will undergo a distinct manufacturing process differing fundamentally from the A17 Pro chip in the iPhone 15 Pro, aiming to reduce production costs. Weibo’s track record lends credibility to these reports, considering their accurate predictions regarding previous iPhone models.
