I think we've been interpreting all these new rumors incorrectly and I don't think Touch ID is going away...kinda. So my biggest issues with using my face to unlock the new iPhone were - 1) Someone can use a picture of me to unlock it...well, luckily from all the rumors we understand it's three dimensional and needs your actual face (not a picture) to unlock. 2) I can't unlock my iPhone at night...from software leaks it looks like the infrared sensor(s) will be able to address that. 3) I can't unlock my phone while it's laying on my desk...from additional software leaks it looks like it will be able to scan your face while you're sitting at a desk and the phone is on a flat surface. 4) What if I just want to look my phone without unlocking it? (See explanation below) 5) Using ApplePay will be ridiculous...well, not really.... What I think is going to happen is the face unlocking method will be he ONLY way to unlock your iPhone. There won't be any fingerprint scanning. I believe there will be a virtual home button that has to be pressed using your finger, which will then trigger the facial recognition. So if you pick up your phone and look at it (without touching the virtual home button) the phone will not unlock. I also think this virtual home button will have haptic feedback so it feels like the home buttons on the newest iPhones. Well, that's all I've got. Technically Touch ID is gone, but I think we'll still be making the same "motions" that we currently use. to unlock our phones and use Apple Pay. The only issue could be when using sunglasses/wearing hats/etc...but I'll leave hat up to Apple to figure out.
