In 2017, Apple switched from the Touch ID fingerprint scanner to Face ID facial recognition, partly due to the lack of the home button. But Touch ID has always had its fans, especially now that we live in a world where face masks and Face ID don't always go well together. It has been rumored for years that Apple is working on a Touch ID sensor in the iPhone screen, but it always seems that this is not happening. Will Touch ID return in the iPhone 14 this year? Unfortunately, we have to disappoint you according to the latest information.
‘No Touch ID in iPhone 14’
Display expert Ross Young, who often gives good predictions about screen techniques used of new Apple devices, tweeting that “it doesn't look like Touch ID is coming this year”. Last year there were rumors that the iPhone 13 would get Touch ID in the screen and that Apple would even have tested this, but in the end this did not happen.

But it's not going to happen this year either, so If you still want Touch ID, then your hopes seem to be pinned to the iPhone SE 2022, because it probably still has a home button in it.
Apple can use Touch ID in iPhones without a home button process in two ways: in the display itself with a relatively new technology or by moving the sensor to the side button, which Apple has already done with two iPads, namely the iPad Air 2020 and iPad mini 2021. It is a relatively simple solution , but for the time being Apple doesn't seem to want to choose that when it comes to the iPhone.
