Apple’s 2022 iPhones could have a trick up their sleeves if you believe what the normally well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has to say.

In a new research note shared by 9to5Mac earlier today, Kuo says that he thinks Apple could announce new iPhones in the second half of 2022 that will include support for a new in-display fingerprint scanner.

The same report goes on to say that a new 6.7-inch iPhone will be the lowest priced ever at that price point.

Starting with Touch ID, Kuo says that the new device will use an Apple-designed fingerprint scanner rather than licensing one from elsewhere. He also says that Apple will ditch the iPhone mini, meaning no 5.4-inch iPhone in 2022.

We reiterate our previous key specifications forecast for 2H22 iPhone models, namely that Apple will launch two high-end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) and two low- end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) in 2H22.

The 5.7-inch non-Pro model will also make for quite the bargain, says Kuo. In fact, he thinks it will be priced around $900 which will make it the cheapest 5.7-inch iPhone ever.

This all means that the 2022 iPhone lineup will likely include a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro as well as a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Of course, Apple still has to get beyond the iPhone 13 that isn’t set to be announced until September this year.
