6 Reasons to Wait for the iPhone 16 & 5 Reasons Not To



Don't Wait for Under-Display Face ID

Don't Wait for Under-Display Face ID

Apple's reportedly working to embed Face ID underneath the iPhone's display. If true, this change would give the iPhone a bigger display area for users to work with.

We've heard about this change numerous times in the past. And while it missed the iPhone 15 Pro models, we could see it emerge on board the high-end iPhone 16 variants.

In a tweet, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says he thinks a "real full-screen iPhone will come in 2024. High-end iPhones in 2024 would adopt an under-display front camera alongside the under-display Face ID." Korean publication The Elec also believes the iPhone 16 Pro will come with embedded Face ID.

Unfortunately, not everyone thinks these changes will come next year. While display analyst Ross Young initially believed the technology would come in 2024 on the iPhone 16 Pro models, he's changed his stance and now says the feature has been pushed to the iPhone 17 Pro.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman believes Apple will eventually "fully embed Face ID and the front-facing camera into the display itself" but that the move is at least three to four years away. Gurman's reiterated this stance in a more recent version of his Power On newsletter.

We trust Young and Gurman so there's a good chance these changes miss the iPhone 16 series and arrive on the iPhone 17 models in 2025 instead.
