After rolling out Dynamic Island to all iPhone 15 members launched this year, Apple is expected to switch the iPhone 16 Pro line to Face ID technology under the screen.
According to BGR, referring to the technical details of the technology that Apple will add to the iPhone 16 series, the report says that when the company applies Face ID under the display, the outside light will pass into the screen and go away. into Face ID, so it will need to ensure the transparency of the screen as well as the encapsulation technology.
Also according to the report, Face ID under the screen is the same as the under-display camera (UPC) that Samsung Display has offered on the Galaxy Z Fold series. UPC is a technology where a front camera module is placed under the screen and the camera lens hole is not visible when the camera function is not in use.
If the rollout of Face ID under the display goes smoothly, the report says, Apple could follow this trend and hide the selfie camera under the display in the iPhone 17 Pro lineup. If that’s the case, it’s still unclear if the company will get rid of Dynamic Island soon, which it just implemented on the iPhone 14 Pro line. In addition, the new technology could also help Apple enhance the full-screen experience of its products.
Finally, the body of the report also mentions that Apple’s first foldable device is likely to launch in 2025, although it is still unclear whether it will be an iPhone, iPad, or iPad/Mac hybrid as rumored.
As for the iPhone 16 series, recent analysis shows that Apple will introduce an iPhone 16 Ultra model to distinguish it from the Pro and regular series. Highlights on the iPhone 16 Ultra include the titanium frame, improved camera, and better processor.
