The iPhone 8 could be mass-produced with a new biometric recognition system

It seems that the  Apple iPhone 8 will support biometric fingerprint recognition through a designed sensor, included on the screen. In addition, it is rumored that the fingerprint sensor built into the iPhone 8 will replace the Apple Touch ID fingerprint reader and is expected to mass-produce the phone in September.
According to the DigiTimes report, the iPhone 8 will not use solutions like the Synaptics ID Touch sensor or Qualcomm's Sense ID fingerprint scanning technology
On the contrary, the phone will use its own Apple algorithm based on the purchase of AuthenTec in 2012 that paved the way for tactile identification technology, as we know it today. That algorithm is said to depend on the technology of Privaris identification and biometric authentication systems such as ultrasound, according to industry sources.
Given that currently Touch ID technology uses a capacitive sensor that scans the finger by tapping the start button and by which the ultrasonic waves read the sub-epidermal layers of the skin, there are rumors that indicate that instead of completely replacing Touch ID, the iPhone 8 should combine fingerprint scanning and advanced face recognition in a more secure two-step biometric verification system.
Apple has recently patented a solution that transforms the entire screen into a fingerprint reader to keep the user authenticated automatically when interacting with the touch screen. It's too early to say if that technology will be included on the iPhone 8 because Apple often takes patents for inventions that never see the light of day.
Be that as it may, fingerprint sensors on the screen are now a reality.
