The Apple iPhone 13 series will arrive later this year, although, the 2021 lineup isn’t expected to arrive with major changes. However, a new report believes that the company might add an in-display fingerprint scanner into the iPhone 13 display and that a foldable iPhone is in the works.

According to some media reports, the Cupertino based giant is testing an in-display fingerprint scanner for the iPhone 13, as one of the key upgrades for its 2021 iPhone lineup. Starting with the iPhone X, the company has mostly discontinued Touch ID from its mainline iPhone series for the facial recognition system, Face ID, for biometric security. But the report states that the system has become less practical due to the pandemic, which has caused users to wear masks when outside.

So, Apple might be working on a more practical solution for its iPhone 13 series, which is already present available on Android smartphones for a couple of years now. The report also claims that the company will still keep Face ID, but might be considering the removal of a charging port on certain iPhone models in favor of wireless charging. Similarly, the report also talks about the company working on a foldable iPhone as well.

The source claims that internal testing for prototype foldable displays are already being undertaken and the screen will feature a hinge design similar to Samsung‘s foldable smartphones, with one of them featuring a 6.7-inch display. The company doesn’t have any plans for a finalized launch and has yet to even develop a prototype foldable handset.
