Apple Watch Series 6 could feature Touch ID fingerprint sensor
Apple could include a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built into the crown of the Apple Watch Series 6, according to a report from Israeli site The Verifier, which claims future generations of the wearable may include Touch ID embedded into the display.
In collaboration with YouTube channel iUpdate, the site claims watchOS 7, which Apple is expected to announce in June at WWDC, will make “improvements to Siri’s intelligence that will allow it to do more extension operations,” adding that Apple will drop support for the Apple Watch Series 2, introduced in 2016.
The Verifier claims that while the Series 6 isn’t expected to feature any significant design changes, the Series 7, arriving in 2021, may feature a Touch ID sensor embedded into the display of the wearable, similar to how Apple is said to be developing an iPhone with both Touch ID and Face ID to launch in that same year.
The duo claimed earlier this week that a future version of tvOS will add a “Kids Mode” to allow parents to restrict access to apps. Secondly, it was said Apple would released an updated Apple TV model with a larger storage capacity.
