One of the most disappointing parts of last year’s iPad lineup for some was the lack of Touch ID sensors for biometric authentication on it. Apple will use Touch ID sensors on all of its 2014 iOS devices, reports¬†KGI.

This news leads us to believe that all new iPhone, iPad, and (possibly) iPod touch models from the year will support this kind of authentication. Shipments of the sensor are set to increase by 233% this year, according to the same report. This isn’t surprising if these new iOS devices indeed get the scanner.

These sensors will also reportedly get an upgrade — Apple may be eyeing tin as a material for the “Touch ID module packaging”. This upgraded sensor hopefully will also fix some issues many users experienced, where the Touch ID sensor would stop working accurately as time went on from its first configuration.
