Apple isn’t looking to bring Touch ID back to iPhones, and users may have to live with Face ID for years to come. This update comes via Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who says that Apple is unlikely to integrate Touch ID into the power button or under the display.

The company has been testing this feature for a while, and every year we hear reports that Apple is finally offering two biometric options for iPhone users. But for now, Apple is unlikely to change the trend, and you’ll have to rely on Face ID to unlock your phone and even pay for apps on future iPhone models.

“For now, I believe Face ID is here to stay and Touch ID will not return to flagship iPhones — at least not for the foreseeable future,” Gurman noted in his report.

Apple ditched physical Touch ID when the iPhone X debuted with a tall screen profile and notch. It was also the first time we were introduced to Face ID technology, which is a pretty secure and reliable company.

Apple even managed to get around the mask issue with Face ID by offering an update that can now also read faces through masks. You still have Touch ID on the iPhone SE variants, and this year’s model also has a physical unit with an outdated design.

But people are eagerly waiting for Apple to bring an in-display fingerprint sensor to the high-end iPhone models, which doesn’t seem to be happening. Android smartphones have received both a software-based face unlock feature and a fingerprint sensor, which is available either on the power button or under the display.

Apple seems to have taken a different approach, and the dynamic integration with the island shows us that the company may have its reasons.
