iPhones Will ‘Have Eye Scanners By 2018’
Fingers are so 2016
In the future there’ll be no need to use our fingers to get into our iPhones, instead we’ll be able to use the force of our eyeballs, at least if the latest news is to be believed.
According to digitimes.com Apple is “likely” to introduce eye scanning for the iPhone as of 2018, while Samsung apparently has it lined up for its flagship Galaxy phone as early as the end of 2016.
Eye scanning works by recognising the user’s iris, the flat, coloured membrane that sits behind the eye. Like fingerprints, each iris is completely unique, which would ensure your phone’s security – unless someone hijacks your face, of course.
Apple has always held ambitions to streamline its products as much as possible, so this could likely spell the end of the trusty home button on future iPhones.
In the meantime, you can look forward to plenty more iPhone 7 rumours before its mooted release in September.
