If the user response is positive, Apple will go on to add the Face ID technology to all future models, if otherwise, the company may roll out the fingerprint technology for all its phones.

Although analyst Kuo claims Apple is having trouble embedding the fingerprint scanner onto the screens of its iPhones due to its 3D Touch technology, which makes the display panel thicker, reducing the accuracy of a fingerprint scanner placed under the display.
