All of Apple’s 2018 iPhone range will come with Face ID facial recognition security. That’s according to new reports citing Asian supply chain sources, backing up previous claims from analysts.
Apple is said to be priming three new iPhone models for release in late 2018. All are said to have the same design as the iPhone X.
What else has Apple got in store for us this year? Here's what we know so far.
One will be an updated version of that device, another an iPhone X Plus model with 6.5–inch OLED display, while a third model is said to have an LCD panel.
The latter is believed to come with stripped back features, meaning Apple will be able to sell the handset at a lower price point.
While 3D Touch may not make it into that iPhone, it seems that Face ID will. LG Innotek, as well as a pair of unnamed Chinese manufacturers, will make the required components for Apple.

This backs up analyst Ming Chi Kuo’s report that Apple would be dropping Touch ID completely in 2018, in favour of its facial scanning tech.
The new iPhone X range is likely to land in late 2018, alongside iOS 12.
