Apple ditched the good old Touch ID in favor of FaceID starting with the iPhone X.

The difference though is that the new Touch ID will also double up as a power button and is likely to be mounted on the side.
Starting from 2021, Apple is likely to ditch the Lightning connector on iPhones. The report note by famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the “highest-end model” in the 2021 iPhone lineup is expected to offer a “completely wireless experience.”
After ditching Touch ID with the iPhone X in 2017, Apple is possibly looking at bringing back the sensor with its 2021 iPhones. Reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the 2021 iPhone will feature both Face ID and an under-display fingerprint scanner.
