It is possible that Apple Apple is dabbling with three different scenarios.

In Plan A Apple had considered placing the Touch ID underneath the OLED glass display of the iPhone 8. However rumors and reports from analysts stated that the Cupertino based company is facing quite a lot of issues while they try to perfect the technology. According to other rumors, Apple’s Plan B was to place the fingerprint sensor on the back panel of the smartphone.

Some leaked images and renders similar to the latest leak of the iPhone 8 even illustrated the possibility. However, the consumer reaction to those leaked renders were negative. The last and final development is fairly recent where one hears that Apple has developed a 3D facial scanning camera which will unlock the iPhone 8 instead of the #Fingerprint Scanner.
