There were a lot of exciting rumors leading up to the iPhone 13 — such as the idea that it would have Touch ID and Face ID on one device.
Apple equipped the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro with a host of exciting features/upgrades — but is Touch ID among them? While the initial reaction to the iPhone 13 series was that it was a ‘boring’ upgrade for Apple, it’s since been proven that the 2021 handsets have a surprising amount to offer. The cameras are better than ever, battery life is substantially improved, and the displays look gorgeous (especially with the 120Hz setting on the 13 Pro lineup). For anyone shopping for a new iPhone right now, it’s hard to go wrong with anything in the iPhone 13 family.
As well-crafted as the iPhone 13 is, the rumor mill leading up to its launch teased a few features that didn’t make the cut. It was reported that the iPhone 13 would feature an always-on display, USB-C charging, and possibly 120Hz refresh rates for every single model — all things that aren’t true of the final products. Another big rumor for the iPhone 13 was that it would have a Touch ID fingerprint sensor somewhere, either under the display or built into the power button. This got many folks looking forward to an iPhone 13 with Face ID and Touch ID available on one device. So, is that what actually happened?
