Today a new one has been released Apple patent that will not leave many users alone. It suggests that the iPhones of the future will continue using the start button … or not. The described speaks of a Touch ID that would be pressure sensitive, something like the Force Touch of the Apple Watch or its second generation, the 3D Touch that is present in the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. At this point, surely many of you are thinking the same as me: And they could not include it on the screen?
The patent has been called “Fingerprint sensor with force sensitive input”And describes a mechanism and cases that integrate a pressure sensitive surface into a biometric safety sensor, which means that it would join in a same point 3D Touch technology and Touch ID. All this would add to a function that Apple is not yet using: the possibility of sliding gestures on the Touch ID.
