Apple's upcoming iPhone 11 is anticipated to launch in September, but already there are tons of rumors surrounding the device. In addition to a square camera-bump similar to the Pixel 4, a USB-C charging port and a price increase, the phone is speculated to have an in-screen fingerprint scanner. This means that instead of using facial recognition and Face ID, you can scan your fingerprint directly on the screen to unlock your phone and, in some cases, authorize payments.
