Can you believe that it wasn't until 2013 that Apple users had an alternative to solely relying on a password to unlock their iPhones?

Prior to the iPhone 5S, users had to choose a minimum of 5 digits to create a password to unlock their iPhone and at the time it wasn't even considered to have an easier alternative. The iPhone 5S was the first iPhone to offer Touch ID which was an instant success due to its convenience and security. However, the Touch ID feature was completely removed in 201 with the release of the iPhone X generation as it was replaced with Face ID but proved to be not as effective for a number of reasons, the main one being its inability to detect a users face when wearing a mask due to the pandemic.

Apple has now confirmed that the new generation of mobile devices including the iPhone 13 will feature under-display Touch ID as well as Face ID. It is probably safe to assume that this will also be featured in the next generation of iPads as well.
