HOW DOES TOUCH ID WORK?
Touch ID uses a small touch sensor enclosed around the home button that scans the layers of skin on a finger.
Users can ‘train’ their iPhone to read and learn their unique fingerprint and when they touch the home button, the phone is unlocked.
Touch ID can also replace an App Store password when purchasing music, applications or books.
Use a ‘laser cut sapphire crystal’ to take a high resolution image scan before the Touch ID software in iOS 7 detects whether or not the print belongs to the owner.
All fingerprint information is encrypted and stored securely within the device chip.
Prints are not stored on an Apple server, nor are backups made on iCloud.
the Bloomberg The report adds more fuel to the fire of speculation that Apple is working on an economical iPhone.
Myriad has leaks and reports that claim that the so-called iPhone SE2 will help Apple address customers at the lower end of the smartphone market.
According to Bloomberg, a source close to the project says the manufacturing process will begin next month and that the new phone could be launched from March.
It is believed to be similar to the iPhone 8, which can still be purchased new for $ 499. When Apple launched the iPhone SE in 2017, it was priced at $ 399.
According to reports, SE 2, which has not been confirmed by Apple, will have the same A13 chip used to power the iPhone 11.
Apple has recently lost ground against its rivals, due to its failure to launch a 5G-enabled phone in 2019 and its decision to focus on developing expensive phones.
While it is popular with avid Apple fans in the world’s richest nations, smartphone users in the poorest countries tend to opt for cheaper Android alternatives.
Bloomberg reports: ‘A cheaper offer can help Apple to compete better in the most competitive and fast-growing emerging phone markets, particularly India.
“IPhones are still hard to sell in the country, which is invaded by Android rivals with aggressive prices that reach less than $ 200.”
It is widely believed that Apple will launch its first 5G-enabled phones later this year, which also come with Aster processors and 3D cameras installed on their flagship phones.
