The KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who has made solid breakthroughs in the hardware predictions for Apple’s products, has come up with a new statement that Apple will abandon the Touch ID from 2018.

The iPhone X is the first Apple smartphone to feature a design without a Home button and Touch ID sensor respectively, which was replaced by the company’s new Face ID technology.

Kuo’s predictions relate to the fact that the new models in 2018 will be primarily Face ID, which will end the Touch ID at least as we know it.

Kuo also note earlier this week that he expects Apple to integrate the TrueDepth camera system into the 2018 iPad lineup, solidifying the technology’s place in the company’s existing mobile device ecosystem.

Apple still holds a patent for a Touch ID sensor embedded under the iPhone screen, but if and when that will happen, we’re about to see. According to Kuo, some Chinese brands might release under-display optical fingerprint readers in the first half of 2018, though shipments of such devices will be low due to supply constraints.
