Since Apple announced its facial recognition system called Face ID, the company started replacing the Touch ID, or fingerprint recognition from the iPhone models. But now it seems that the technology could make a comeback.

According to some media reports, Apple is testing a new Touch ID technology. Given that most of the premium smartphones launching these days come with an in-display fingerprint sensor, it seems that Apple could also jump the bandwagon.

The company is reportedly testing the in-display Touch ID. Previously, it was reported that Apple could bring in-display fingerprint sensors to the upcoming iPhones and the latest report indicates that the company is making progress towards that.

However, Apple isn’t expected to replace the Face ID. Reports coming from WSJ based on the information of two employees of Apple, who remain anonymous, both Touch ID and Face ID will be present in the upcoming iPhone model.

While optical fingerprint sensor could be more reliable compared to the existing ultrasonic sensor used by the company, Apple isn’t expected to use the latest optical sensor unless they are as secure as the current version.

Apple is using Touch ID only on one smartphone these days – iPhone SE. However, the fingerprint sensor is also available on MacBook devices. Interestingly, on iPad Air 4, the company shifted the sensor from the screen to the sleep/wake button on the side.
