It is worth that time flies by and the advances of technology companies are at cruising speed. However, we are still curious that only a few months after the launch of the iPhone 13 and 9 months after the iPhone 14, we already have rumors about the iPhone 15 or of iPhone 16. Yes, as you read it. Apple smartphones for a year or two are already on the lips of some leakers at the cost of one of its most outstanding features.
Reliability of rumors so early
Before looking at the rumor itself, we would like to give some context to the situation. As can be expected in a company of this caliber, Apple does not develop and design its products in the short term. The company has a roadmap with a much broader horizon and probably today has even defined the iPhone of 2030 or at least they have goals set for it.
Now, does this mean that the iPhone 15 or iPhone 16 is already closed? Absolutely. In fact, at this point the iPhone 14 would be living its final stage of development in the absence of tests and the subsequent sending of information to suppliers and factories to begin its manufacture and assembly. However, there are already teams dedicated to planning the iPhone 15 and yes, the leaks that occur may be completely true, but being more than a year and a half away, everything may end up truncating if the development does not go as planned. Apple looks forward to today.
Face ID under the screen is the big leak
Of the iPhone 14 it is known that, at least the ‘Pro’, will say goodbye to the notch in favor of a hole in the screen or a pill-type format. Or maybe even both, as has been rumored in recent hours. However, in the face of 2023 or 2024 Apple’s plans could be revolving around the complete deleting items on screen to integrate its facial recognition under the screen.
In its day, the integration of the fingerprint sensor in the screen was a feat, given the complexity that it entailed. In fact, Apple never implemented it in favor of Face ID precisely. However, they do want to go ahead now by integrating these sensors under the panel. And it seems very complicated given how many manufacturers are implementing cameras in this format.
And it is that, if we observe devices that have the camera under the screen, it can be observed that the quality and color of the panel decreases in that part without being able to completely hide the lens. Hiding the camera further could mean that it is later unable to deliver good results. Thus put, it is the whiting that bites its tail and Apple’s challenge of not only integrating a possible camera, but also the 3D sensors of Face ID, it seems the least demanding.
It should be noted that this information has been given by Ross Young, who in response to another leak of the iPhone 14 has hinted that Apple is already working on this function for 2023 or 2024. It should be noted that Young is not exactly a person who plays to make hypotheses and that, although he has also had his wrong forecasts, he is remembered for his successes. In the most recent, he stood out for having fully hit the mark by counting some of the characteristics of the iPhone 13 months before its presentation.
