Will Apple ever include an under-display fingerprint scanner in one of its iPhones? That’s a question that’s been asked a lot, and sources have disagreed on the answer so far.
But now there’s even more evidence, as Apple was recently given a comparable patent – though don’t anticipate it on the iPhone 14.
The patent, which was discovered by Patently Apple, is for under-display optical fibres that may be utilised to record fingerprint data reliably.
Apple’s technology looks to produce lower optical transmission losses than other alternatives, which could mean faster and more accurate fingerprint scanning.
