June is right around the corner, which means Apple is working feverishly on the products and software it plans to introduce at WWDC 2021. First and foremost is Apple’s next-generation mobile operating system, iOS 15.
What will Apple add to iOS 15 that’ll make it even better than iOS 14? The folks over at iPhoneSoft.fr have some inside information that may give us a sneak-peek into Apple’s upcoming plans.
Dual Touch ID and Face ID
Get ready to say hello to Touch ID again. After ditching Touch ID in its flagship lineup years ago, Apple is poised to bring this touch-based technology back into the fold.
According to iPhoneSoft’s sources, Apple is preparing to add both Touch ID and Face ID to its phones for the first time. Users will be able to choose the method they wish to use to authenticate their iPhones.
The Touch ID sensor reportedly will be integrated into the display or the lock button. Though you may be getting Touch ID back, you won’t be seeing the traditional Home button again.
1TB Storage Support
Apple also may be boosting the storage capacities that consumers can choose from in the iPhone 13. Currently capped at 512GB of storage in the iPhone 12, recent reports hint that iPhone 13 owners may be able to select a 1TB option.
This increase will trickle down to the other capacities allowing Apple to sell the iPhone 13 with 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage.
iOS 15 Control Center Makeover
Apple may be giving the Control Center a macOS makeover in iOS 15. Details are sparse, but the rumor mill hints at a new interface that mimics the macOS Big Sur Control Center.
Chock full of options, the new and improved Control Center will provide quick access to essential data and critical settings such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and more.
Bonus: Face ID Coming to the Mac
The report also suggests Apple will finally add Face ID to its Mac lineup. Apple’s upcoming 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the new M-series processor will include this technology. Face ID also may make its way into the 2021 iMac series. Eventually, all of the display-equipped Macs will support this form of authentication.
