The discoveries up till now have given the Apple fans a good idea of what to expect with the upcoming iPhone. Apple plans to launch the 10th-anniversary device later this year. This time, the iPhone is also expected to feature a glass back along with wireless charging. Still, there is no confirmation of the existence of a Touch ID.

The Homepod firmware code seems to indicate that the Touch ID will become a part of the iPhone but there is no confirmation that Apple is actually ditching the Home button in favor of an under-display fingerprint scanner.
