iPhone Won’t Get Under-Display Face ID Anytime Soon: Analyst

Apple was speculated to bring under-display face ID on iPhone 15 models this year. Now, DSCC analyst Ross Young contradicts the rumor saying Apple has delayed its plans for under-display Face ID by at least a year. This suggests that Apple’s iPhone 17 models in 2025 could feature an under-display face ID. The Cupertino-based tech giant is also expected to bring back Touch ID functionality that allows users to unlock their phones with a fingerprint to iPhone units. The Touch ID system is reportedly designed to be set under the display.

Ross Young on Twitter said that Apple’s plans to bring iPhone models with under-display face ID will be pushed at least a year to 2025 or later due to sensor issues. Based on this, it is expected that iPhone 17 series could come with the rumored feature. The under-display Face ID will hide the lens used for facial recognition when not in use and it will look like a normal display. An early rumor by The Elec said that Apple could bring the under-display Face ID for the iPhone 16 Pro.

Separately, a new post by the South Korean blog Naver suggests that Apple will adopt an under-display Touch ID for future iPhone models. The company is reportedly said to have made “some progress” in the recent development of the under-display built-in Touch ID.

The tech giant is expected to add the under-screen Touch ID two to three years after completing the adoption of the under-display face ID. The report adds that the system combines short-wave infrared and optical systems, and Apple has obtained 12 patents.

Besides basic fingerprint recognition, the solution is expected to identify the user’s vein pattern. It could also measure the user’s blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate. The feature could ensure a fast situational recognition rate by determining whether the user is wearing gloves and whether the user’s fingers are wet or dry.
