Apple will completely say goodbye to the notch on the iPhone 15

Apple wants to completely remove the notch from its iPhone to begin a transition to under-display cameras, and could do so in 2023, according to a new rumor from Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC). The analyst, who is usually absolutely right in his predictions, assured in his Twitter profile What the firm plans to remove the notch on all iPhone 15 modelsincluding the two basic variants.

The Cupertino company, let’s remember, could announce the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro in September, the new generation of smartphones which, according to the latest rumors, will arrive with important design innovations. One of the most anticipated changes is the replacement of the notch, which will become a small pill-shaped hole located in the upper part of the screen. Only the iPhone 14 Pro, yes, will be able to take advantage of this improvement, because the base models – iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max – will retain the notch we see in the iPhone 13.

Ross Young, however, points out that Apple’s roadmap for under-display camera technology is to implement a hole in all 2023 models.The company will say goodbye to the notch with the iPhone 15. The CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants assures that this strategy is carried out taking into account “the technical challenges that remain for panel cameras to meet the quality requirements of the most demanding brands, as well as the cost requirements of panel manufacturers. .

Apple hopes to include Face ID under the screen in 2024

The roadmap provided by the head of Display Supply Chain Consultants also shows that in 2024 the iPhone 16 will retain this small area for the TrueDeph sensor. Pro models, on the other hand, will have Face ID under the panel, leaving only a hole for the selfie camera. It will take until 2025 for Apple to implement Face ID sensors under the screen in all iPhone models. In 2026, moreover, they expect the iPhone 18 Pro to include both the TrueDeph camera sensors and the selfie camera inside the panel, leaving the screen fully visible.

In the meantime, we expect that iPhone 14 Pro increase the size of your visible screen, as the hole will take up less space in the front. The base models, in addition, would arrive with ProMotion technology, which is now exclusive only to the Pro versions.
