Display Analyst Backs iPhone 14 Pro Under-Display Face ID Rumors
An unexpected iPhone 14 leak brought with it the news that Apple appears to be working on doing away with the iPhone’s notch in favor of a hole-punch design.
To make that happen, Apple would need to place the Face ID sensors beneath the display and now a display analyst has chimed in to say that is indeed in the cards.
Analyst Ross Young has taken to Twitter to back up claims that Face ID will sit beneath the display in iPhone 14 and beyond, saying that is something that was first suggested back in June.
It also appears that we should expect a similar configuration for the 2023 iPhones, too.
However, Young also noted that under-panel Face ID “isn’t final yet,” something that Apple will need to overcome before launch next year. It could also mean that Apple’s plans are fluid, with the notch hanging around if things aren’t going according to plan.
Regarding iPhone 14 leaks, great to see. We showed under panel Face ID in the 2022 Pro models in June…Also showed the 2023 lineup as well. pic.twitter.com/dGcm5n0bEO
The new notch-free design, as leaked yesterday, instantly made iPhone 13 seem out of date a whole week before it is set to be announced. That’s a gut punch for Apple, and it will be interesting to see if we hear more about this leak in the coming weeks and months.
I would say under panel Face ID isn't final yet. Still being worked on. It is easier than under panel cameras though.
