iPhone 5s’ Touch ID sensor is one of the most reliable and accurate finger print sensor on the market today (you will know what I am talking about if you have used Galaxy S5’s finger print sensor), but that isn't stopping Apple and the company will be using an improved Touch ID sensor on next generation iOS devices according to a report from China Times.

Last month, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple and its Touch ID manufacturing partner TSMC will be using Tin for manufacturing of the fingerprint sensor to increase its durability. With China Times also corroborating this news it looks like we will get a more robust Touch ID sensor in next generation iPhone 6.

China Times also reported that TSMC is doubling its Touch ID sensor production to 120 million units for second half of 2014, which would indicate that not only next generation iPhone, but also iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 will also get Touch ID sensor. TSMC will start delivering the new sensor in July for production of next generation of iOS devices in third quarter.
