  • Apple will apparently bring under-display Face ID to the iPhone 16 Pro line.
  • This will allow for a smaller display cutout and a larger usable screen area.

Under-display fingerprint sensors have been around on smartphones for a few years now, hiding the scanner under the screen. Now, it sounds like Apple is planning to place its 3D face unlock sensors under the display too.

The Elec reports that the iPhone 16 Pro series (scheduled for release in 2024) could arrive with under-display face unlock or Face ID. This would enable Apple to significantly shrink the size of the “Dynamic Island” display cutout seen on the iPhone 14 Pro series, giving people more usable screen area in return.
