Apple is expected to make a big change to the lower lineup OLED in the iPhone 15 series this year, and to apply the 'Under Panel Face ID' function that hides Face ID under the screen from the Pro lineup next year in the iPhone 16 series. Underpanel Face ID refers to a technology in which Face ID, which is required for user recognition, looks like a normal display when this function is not used.
Initially, the site expected the iPhone 15 Pro to get under display Face ID; however, that is now seen as unlikely.
In this case, in the iPhone 16 Pro lineup, when the display screen is turned on, the hole for the underpanel Face ID is not visible, and only the lens hole for the front camera is visible, increasing the sense of immersion. Early last year, some in the industry speculated that Apple could apply Underpanel Face ID starting with the iPhone 15 series Pro lineup this year, but it seems difficult at the moment.
At some point in the future, Apple is also expected to adopt an under display camera. This would enable use of the entire display when the camera is not in use.
