A new rumor suggests that Face ID could be located under the screen of the iPhone 16 Pro. Dynamic Island could be greatly reduced to house only the selfie punch camera.
The main reason for the existence of the notch and then Dynamic Island on iPhones is Face ID. Apple’s facial recognition system requires too many sensors to fit under the screen. If this is also what the identity of Apple smartphones has done (and does), it is above all a technical constraint that the competition has not followed.
In a few years this could be history.

The latter also specifies that the manufacturer could bring the selfie camera under the screen after having integrated Face ID under the screen. Something to improve the immersion and design of future iPhones.
On the side of 9to5Mac furthermore, we are going in that direction: the medium writes that ” there seems to be a growing consensus that the iPhone 16 Pro models will be where the patents come to fruition ».
Dynamic Island will reach all iPhone 15
The media patent apple transmits in addition to that a new report from a supply chain in Taiwan: ” claims that Apple has confirmed that it will apply its Dynamic Island camera aperture to all four iPhone 15s scheduled to launch in September “. Information correlated by Bloomberg this January 9.
