Does the iPhone 14 have Touch ID?

Apple has been working on an under-screen fingerprint sensor since 2019.

Quick Answer: Unfortunately, the iPhone 14 does not include Touch ID. Apple’s under-screen fingerprint sensor development has been slower than expected, resulting in its absence across all iPhone 14 models.

Apple hasn’t had Touch ID on a non-SE iPhone since 2017. That was when the iPhone X came out, and Face ID became the biometric standard. But what about the iPhone 14? Does it have Touch ID?

The base iPhone 14 still has a hefty notch, with Face ID sensors in full view. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max use the Dynamic island up top with Face ID sensors. But what about a fingerprint sensor for Touch ID?

Apple has been working on an under-screen fingerprint sensor since 2019, so maybe it’s ready for release. Let’s dive in.

So, does the iPhone 14 have a fingerprint sensor?

Short answer: No

Apple’s progress on making an under-screen fingerprint sensor for Touch ID is slower than expected. And it’s not available on any iPhone 14 model.

We’re still unsure if it will arrive on the iPhone 15. A research note from September last year says 2023 might be the year.

We’d love to see an under-screen version of Touch ID, or maybe built into the power button. After all, that’s where it is on the MacBook and some iPads.

Does the iPhone 14 Pro Max have a fingerprint sensor?

No, the iPhone 14 Pro Max does not include a fingerprint sensor. Apple has opted to continue using Face ID as this model’s primary biometric authentication method.

Is Face ID Safe?

Yes, Face ID is considered a safe and secure biometric authentication method. Plus, your facial data is safely stored on your device, making it harder for someone to unlock it.
