Apple is apparently readying a new under-display integrated Touch ID fingerprint sensor “as early as its 2020 iPhones” next fall, according to a report today from Bloomberg.

Apple has today updated its iOS version statistics for developers. Apple publishes these numbers every few months based on usage traffic to the App Store.
