Apple is internally developing touch and display driver integration (TDDI) single-chip solutions for its iPhones, according to sources in Taiwan’s IC design industry.
The TDDI single-chip solutions will also come with integrated fingerprint sensors, said the sources. The integrated design would fit into future iPhone designs – models with ultra-thin and ultra-narrow displays, and with a whole plane design eliminating the Home button.
The Virtual Home Button will act as a finger print sensor and will also open menus. This could also increase the Screen size or the screen-to-body ratio. We don’t expect this to see in coming iPhones however, there are bright possibilities for the future.
