Hey everyone Recently there's been plenty of rumour regarding a fingerprint scanner which may potentially be included in a future generation of the iPhone. Much debate is around regarding the potential location of a fingerprint scanner: many forum members here (and elsewhere) postulated that Apple would build it into/behind the display, such that a 'swipe to unlock' motion would simultaneously read the finger and unlock the device. Comparatively, others believed that the scanner would have to be built into the home button or another region on the device, as it may not be possible for Apple to build the scanner into the display. Personally, I am not sure about what is and isn't possible, so I was hoping that the next generation iPhone had a scanner built into the display for typical Apple simplicity. However, I've created this thread to throw around the question regarding the possible location/s of a fingerprint scanner in the next generation iPhone. As you may well know, with iOS 7, it is now possible to unlock the device by swiping anywhere on the lock screen. Surely this would make it impossible for Apple to recognise a fingerprint, as (virtually) the entire display would need the ability to register an input. So, what is it that you think? If Apple's next generation iPhone were to include such a scanner, where do you think it would be now? Disclaimer: This thread is simply present to provoke discussion and personal opinion regarding the possibility and potential location of a fingerprint scanner in either the next generation iPhone or future generation/s.
