New Delhi: Apple’s upcoming iPhone 16 Pro model will reportedly include Face ID technology under the screen to provide a more usable viewing area. The tech giant will likely place the parts needed for Face ID authentication directly under the iPhone’s screen next year, MacRumors reports.
The TrueDepth camera for Face ID is not visible below the screen when not in use, but appears to blend seamlessly into the surrounding screen area. The hole in the screen for the front camera is expected to remain on the iPhone 16 Pro, but the overall viewing area and sense of immersion are likely to be improved.

Since the under-display technology is not yet ready, the display cutouts will not change from the iPhone 14 Pro to the iPhone 15 Pro later this year. The iPhone maker will likely adopt an under-panel camera (UPC) once it implements Face ID technology under the screen, eliminating all display cutouts on the iPhone currently in use, the report said.

Meanwhile, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in August last year that “high-end iPhones in 2024 would use an under-display front camera in addition to the under-display Face ID.”
