integrating the touch id sensor into the iphone 8's display remains a big bottleneck for apple, according to a new report from analyst timothy arcuri of cowen and company.
"for the 5.8-inch oled version, the biggest bottleneck remains integrating an under-glass fingerprint sensor into the display— the current yield rate of apple's in-house authentec solution remains low and aapl seems unwilling to use other vendors' products," arcuri wrote.
if apple is unable to resolve yield issues there are three possible courses of action, suggests arcuri. first, apple could ditch touch id in favor of facial recognition. second, apple could move touch id to the back of the smartphone. finally, production could be delayed but the iphone 8 could still be announced alongside the iphone 7s.
