It’s beginning to look like the iPhone 14 will not have Face ID under the display, as earlier rumors claimed. Now, display industry consultant Ross Young claims the Face ID under the display will be delayed until the iPhone 15.
On Wednesday, display industry consultant Ross Young said that iPhone 14 Pro models will feature both hole-punch and pill-shaped cutouts near the top of the display. Young says the hole will likely be for the Face ID dot projector, while the pill-shaped cutout will house the front camera and an infrared camera for Face ID.
Young also tweeted to say that the infrared camera will not be moved under the display until 2023 or 2024. This suggests that Face ID will not be fully under the display until the iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 16 Pro.
Young’s claims jibe with Apple industry analysts Ming-Chi Kuo‘s previous remarks when he claimed that Face ID would not be moved under the display until 2023.
While the two-hole design for iPhone 14 Pro models would not provide a completely seamless viewing experience, it would get rid of the much-maligned notch at the top of iPhone displays.
