It’s becoming increasingly likely this year’s “iPhone 8” will feature Touch ID embedded into it’s all-new edge-to-edge 5.8-inch OLED display. The optical fingerprint sensor will enable authentication directly on the screen.
For months, it looked like Apple’s next flagship device would include Touch ID embedded into the display. Reported production issues, however, put that placement in doubt. Just weeks ago, it appeared possible Apple would be forced to move Touch ID to the back of the device. A later rumor said Touch ID might be headed to the device’s power button.
The 2017 iPhones are likely to be announced in September.

The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) begins on Monday, June 5 with the annual keynote address at 10 a.m. PDT. At that event, we’ll be seeing the unveiling of “iOS 11” and next-generation versions of tvOS, watchOS, and macOS. We could also see the arrival of an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and second-generation iPad Pro. A Siri-powered speaker is also a possibility.
