Apple is going to unveil its iPhone 15 lineup later this year, and before its release, the rumour mill for the next generation iPhone 16 has already started. According to the latest reports, Apple is said to use under-display Face ID in the iPhone 16 Pro models.
However, it will be different from Samsung’s under-display camera strategy. The Cupertino giant is likely to use embedded Face ID components beneath the display. Here’s everything you need to know about:

iPhone 16 Pro: Embedded Face ID beneath the display
It was speculated that the Embedded Face ID beneath the display would be included in this year’s iPhone 15 as the company has acquired patents for embedded Face ID for several years. But according to display analyst Ross Young, it will come to the iPhone 16 in 2024.
The famous Apple leakster Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the feature would be limited to the iPhone 16 Pro models. The feature is expected to arrive in base models in 2025.
Interestingly, the United States Patent and Trademark Office gave Apple yet another patent on the same day as the supply-chain report for this next-generation feature, which might replace Dynamic Island on future iPhone models.
