All the new features rumored for the iPhone 8 may be exciting, but more features can lead to more potential hiccups. The iPhone 8, or the tenth anniversary iPhone as it is commonly referred to, is expected to come with an all new design, an OLED display and a radical new technology that will embed the TouchID sensor underneath the display. While the exact implementation is not finalized, we can now say that the fingerprint sensor is unlikely to be on the back of the phone. However, a few weeks ago, many reports claimed that Apple has made a breakthrough, the yield rates had been brought under control and the iPhone 8 was on track for a September launch.

Word has it that Apple may be planning on integrating its Touch ID into the display of the upcoming iPhone, meaning you could unlock your phone just by touching its screen.

There are three possible options which apparently include a pinhole in the class for an optical or ultrasonic sensor, making the cover class over the sensor area thinner, or using capacitive or infrared tech to integrate a film sensor into the display.

Timothy Arcuri, a Wall Street analyst for Cowen and Company, sent out a note and obtained by Apple Insider which indicated that Apple is pondering on three options regarding the iPhone 8's fingerprint sensor.

Owing to the delays, Apple might unveil the iPhone 8 in September or October, as per the present expected timeline, though the device might not actually be available till much later in the year. Apple acquired LuxVue in April 2016.
