Speculations about the next iPhone are already circulating the web now. Although Apple has just launched its latest flagships, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, earlier this month, some are very keen to immediately make their predictions for the next flagship. Will the tech giant let go of the Touch ID system? Apparently, the answer depends on you, consumers.

Face ID for the next iPhone?

Since Apple introduced Face ID, the latest feature on the iPhone X, does it follow that the Cupertino-based company will head on to this direction for its next smartphones?

According to a report by MacRumors, this direction is dependent on the how the consumers will patronize the new iPhone X.

Face ID is the replacement for the Touch ID system for unlocking an iPhone. The new iPhone X is the first Apple model that sports the TrueDepth camera. This is the state-of-the-art camera that is able to make in-depth perception necessary for Face ID to function.

The publication has noted that KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo published the latest research note for investors on September 19. Kuo included in the note, his speculations on what Apple would possibly do with the next iPhones.

Kuo mentioned that many investors are anxious to know if the tech giant will ultimately let go of Touch ID and pursue the Face ID system.

However, he also said that it will all depend on how the public will receive the new Face ID feature.

It remains to be seen if the new unlocking system will provide a pleasant user experience. Once the iPhone X is delivered to the showrooms, reviews and comments on this new feature are expected to abound.

If everything turns out very positively, the analyst predicts that Apple will most likely head in the direction of using the Face ID system in all the other new models of iPhone.

However, if a problem arises with the new technology feature, the company is speculated to go back to the Touch ID system for its future phones.

Are the consumers willing to shell off a thousand dollars for iPhone X?

While the new iPhone X has been announced to have an expensive starting price of $999, Apple CEO Tim Cook claims it is actually a great bargain.

In a TV guesting at “Good Morning America,” Cook claimed that the $999 price tag is worth it. The CEO justified that considering the technology that people will get from buying the iPhone X, they are actually getting high value for their money.

Cook shared that they have noticed that the majority of consumers are now willing to pay for “phones over long periods of time,” Thrillist reported. Since iPhone X is considered to be one of the most sophisticated smartphones available on the market now, the price tag may no longer be an issue.
