By now you’ve probably heard the iPhone 5c’s new ‘Touch ID’ fingerprint scanner will be coming to your phone, but it won’t be for a while.
Apple has reportedly delayed the unlocking feature, which is supposed to be arriving in the next few weeks.
We have been hearing rumours for a few weeks now that Apple would unveil a fingerprint scanner at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco this month.
There has also been speculation that Apple is working on an Apple Watch with the new scanner.
But now we have confirmation that Apple has indeed delayed the fingerprint scanner for a couple of months.
Apple has apparently delayed the new fingerprint scanner and is not planning to reveal it until late 2019, reports The Verge.
The news is even more surprising since Apple’s recent announcement that it will release its iPhone 5C next year, which means the company is also now delaying its Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
Apple says it has a lot of work to do to make the new Touch ID scanner more convenient, secure and intuitive for users, but a delay in the fingerprint scanning process could put an end to any hopes of that.
The Touch ID technology has seen many manufacturers including Apple, Samsung and LG release new products over the last couple of years, and it has been praised for its ease of use and its ability to unlock devices and take photos.
Apple was able to improve on the technology by including a chip inside the back of the iPhone to make it more secure, but Apple is also said to be working on new technologies that can help unlock a device without touching the sensor.
Apple’s announcement also came as a big blow to Samsung, who has been releasing the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 phones with Touch ID on the back for some time.
It has been a big hit with users who were worried about the lack of security of the fingerprint sensors and Apple was quick to distance itself from the situation.
A number of tech and privacy experts have voiced concerns over the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S, which were launched without fingerprint scanners.
But with the release of the new iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has apparently changed its mind and will release a fingerprint reader.
Apple said it is working to make unlocking a smartphone with Touch IDs easier and faster, but has not given any details on when the technology will be available for all iPhone users.
