Under-Display Face ID Coming To iPhone 17 Pro

Apple will reportedly bring under-display Face ID technology to the iPhone 17 Pro according to display analyst Ross Young.

Young has updated his display roadmap for Apple’s products, saying that Face ID technology will still require a circular cutout for the camera until 2027’s Pro models. At that point the camera will live beneath the display, possibly removing the need for the Dynamic Island as we know it.

As MacRumors notes, that’s a change from the roadmap that Young shared just a 11 months ago.

The forecast differs from Young’s initial roadmap shared in May 2022. Previously, he expected 2024’s iPhone 16 Pro models to be the first to feature under-panel ‌Face ID‌ technology. Last month, Young said that this one-year delay was due to “sensor issues.” The change means that the two display cutouts that currently compose the Dynamic Island will apparently persist unchanged through three successive “Pro” ‌iPhone‌ generations.

Young, in a post to his Super Followers on Twitter, also reportedly said that all iPhone 17 models will feature Apple’s 120Hz ProMotion display technology. It’s currently only offered on the Pro models.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 15 models later this year, with the standard non-Pro options thought to be getting the Dynamic Island for the first time, but not the 120Hz ProMotion technology that allows for smoother scrolling and animations.
