Apple is reportedly preparing a software update for its iOS software for the upcoming iPhone X that would allow users to use a stylus on the device without a physical touchpad.
The new feature would allow people to use the device’s Touch ID sensor without having to remove their iPhone from their pocket.
The change, first reported by The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, would likely be a major update for iPhone X users, as many have already begun using the iPhone X’s new screen-sensing capabilities.
AppleInsider reported in October that the new feature could include a number of new capabilities.
Apple’s previous update to iOS included a new feature called FaceTime.
The feature could be used to connect FaceTime video calls or FaceTime audio calls.
Apple’s current software updates to iOS include a new video player called iMovie, a new music player called Xcode, and support for a new Siri voice assistant called Apple Music.
Apple has been pushing a number new features with the new iPhone X, including a new home button, an updated Siri interface, and a new multitasking feature called Siri Shortcuts.
Apple also recently released a new emoji for its Siri voice-recognition features.
