Since the advent of this black technology in early 2018, major mobile phone brands have begun to adopt it one after another. Now, not only flagship computers, but also many mid-range models are equipped with this function.
In contrast, Apple’s mobile phones so far either use physical touch ID or rely on face ID. although it has been rumored that the iPhone may support screen fingerprint identification in 2020, it is still unknown! However, in recent days, foreign media have found that Apple applied for the patent of adding touch ID to the apple watch as early as 2018, but… With such a small watch, where should touch Id be added?
At this stage, if you want to unlock the apple watch, you can only set a password on the watch or use the mobile phone to synchronously unlock it. According to the patent figures, it seems that Apple intends to make touch ID on the screen, but after all, the screen size is limited, so it is unlikely to dig an additional fingerprint identification button for the entity.
Therefore, it is speculated that the possibility of using fingerprint unlocking under the screen in Apple watch will become very high. If it is really done, it is likely to be the first smart wearable device to use fingerprint identification under the screen, which will be ahead of other brands (even earlier than its own iPhone), Although it’s going to be a while, XD is still looking forward to the realization of this patent. I don’t know how likely Rex friends think this product will be born?
