iPhone 16 Pro to introduce new feature of Face ID
January 10, 2023 10:50 PM
Apple debuted a new pill-shaped cutout on the iPhone 14 Pro models, removing the top-notch that had been a common feature for several generations.
The Cupertino Company refers to it as Dynamic Island, and speculations claim that it will be available on all four iPhone 15 models this year. However, Apple may have different plans for the iPhone 16 Pro next year.
According to The Elec, Apple's iPhone 16 Pro will include under-display Face ID technology to enable a larger display area.
When the Facial Recognition function is not in use, the TrueDepth camera will be hidden. Only the lens hole is present.
When the Facial Recognition function is not in use, the TrueDepth camera will be hidden. Only the front camera lens hole will be visible, creating a more seamless appearance.
According to the report, the front-facing camera hole will stay on the iPhone 16 Pro, but the display area and overall immersive experience will improve. Furthermore, it reveals that this year's iPhone 15 Pro will have the same display cutouts as the iPhone 14 Pro because the under-display Face ID is not yet ready.
According to the source, Apple would implement an under-panel camera (UPC) consecutively after implementing an under-panel Face ID on the front of the iPhone.
The UPC will still feature a front camera module positioned beneath the display, but the camera lens hole will be hidden while not in use. The under-panel face ID and UPC application principles appear to be the same.
The new technology will most likely be limited to the Pro versions for the time being, before being expanded to the rest of the devices in the following generation.
