On June 23 news, according to the “Science Innovation Board Daily” report, the iPhone 13 series is expected to support screen fingerprint unlocking. It is expected to be put into mass production at the end of August and early September. between.
Since the beginning of 2020, the epidemic has caused very inconvenient travel for iPhone users. The reason is that the iPhone does not support fingerprint recognition on the screen, but uses a face unlocking solution. Under normal circumstances, Apple’s 3D structured light is indeed safe, reliable and fast. However, during the epidemic period, you must wear a mask. Face unlocking cannot be used, so you can only enter the password, which makes it extremely inconvenient for iPhone users to use their mobile phones.
More importantly, the cost of screen fingerprint unlocking is not high, and Apple is the most profitable company in the mobile phone industry. The four models of the iPhone 12 series have already used OLED screens, but none of them supports on-screen fingerprint unlocking, which is indeed unreasonable.
Now it’s 2021, and the epidemic in most parts of the world is still not over. If the iPhone still does not support screen fingerprint unlocking, no matter how Apple executives explain, it is estimated that users will feel a little unhappy.
It is reported that the iPhone 13 series is also divided into four versions, all of the same size as the previous generation. The iPhone 13 series has very limited upgrade points. In addition to the above-mentioned screen fingerprint unlocking, only the screen is considered a bright spot. Today, when Android flagships generally use 120Hz screens, iPhones still use 60Hz. According to supply chain sources, iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will support 120Hz.
As we all know, the iPhone’s small-capacity battery life has not been very good, and it does not support high-power fast charging. If it supports high-brush, it is likely that the battery life cannot be maintained. Network access information shows that the battery capacity of the iPhone 13 Pro Max has increased by 665mAh, but the increase in battery capacity of several other versions is too small.
With the support of LTPO adaptive refresh rate technology, the battery life of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is definitely able to carry it, but the battery capacity of the iPhone 13 Pro has only increased by 280mAh, which is estimated to be more difficult.
Today, when competition in the Android market has become fierce, with the advantages of a closed system, Apple seems a little behind closed doors and complacent. Some time ago, the iPhone opened the NFC permissions, indicating that Apple has realized its plight and is ready to learn more from Android manufacturers.
