There have been plenty of rumors recently concerning the return of Apple’s Touch ID on iPhones for future models. Some even went as far as suggesting that Apple might remove Face ID from its iPhones in order to deliver a notch-less experience, and replace that particular biometric security function with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo recently predicted that the 2021 iPhones might feature both Face ID and Touch ID capabilities. Kuo confirmed previous rumors that Touch ID is making a comeback, with Apple possibly utilizing an in-display fingerprint scanner, but, additionally, Kuo believes that Apple will continue to offer its Face ID features on the 2021 iPhone.
