This new change could be due to the possible design without frames that would arrive with the new Apple iPhone , and that would raise the size of the screen until the 5.8 inches.

Apple could also fail to include this fingerprint reader technology in its next device to make way for new biometric technology that would offer features similar to the Touch ID. The analyst Ming-Chi Kuo does not go into details, but a facial recognition technique had already been rumored for the iPhone 8 previously.
