Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts in a note to investors that sub-screen Touch ID will appear in 2023, and also predicts the release date of the rumored iPhone Fold.
The note outlines the financial outlook for iPhone component suppliers. Kuo credits the innovation “miss” due to low development progress.
Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that the first foldable iPhone will come with an 8-inch QHD + display. The analyst also believes that the display will have a resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels.
Kuo originally said Apple would produce 15 to 20 million foldable iPhones in 2023. However, in the latest report, Kuo believes he will be ready for the traditional iPhone season, but in the fall of 2024.
As for Touch ID, the analyst initially predicted it in the iPhone 13, but in March 2021 he denied his assumptions, announcing the appearance of the function only in the iPhone 15.
