According to a Patently source, Apple is on the right track with its improvements to the iPhone’s front camera and Face ID sensor cluster. Apple will equip Dynamic Island for all 4 iPhone 15 models, according to the most recent leak. Apple will then install Face ID beneath the display of the iPhone 16 generation by 2024.
Elec reports that “Apple is expected to use ‘Under Panel Face ID’ technology, hiding Face ID under the screen from the next Pro series, and make a significant change to the OLED panel of this year’s budget iPhone 15 model.”
What is Under Panel Face ID?
Apple is studying and creating a technology called Under Panel Face ID. When the screen is in normal operation mode, the face recognition hidden camera cluster won’t show up.
This indicates that the Face ID position beneath the panel won’t be visible when the iPhone 16 generation screen is turned on. In order to further enhance the impression that this component is submerged, the front camera lens hole is also gathered.
According to experts, Apple is progressively integrating biometric hardware beneath the iPhone screen. The fact that they have patents for both Touch ID and Face ID under the screen serves as proof. They might use either of these technologies in the future on new iPhone models.
