The upcoming fingerprint reader would be embedded in the screen, letting a user scan their fingerprint on a large portion of the display, and it would work in tandem with the existing Face ID system, the people familiar with Apple’s plans said.
Nevertheless, Bloomberg said that the person familiar with the matter said that Apple and its overseas suppliers are currently testing the how it will work out for both sensors to exit, which will be applied to the iPhone as early as next year, or it may be postponed until 2021.

For the next-generation iPhone that will be released on September 11, it is expected that Face ID will contiune to be used. With Face ID, users can unlock the iPhone, log in to the app, using Apple Pay, etc. as long as they look at the phone.
