Apple suspended development of in-display Touch ID sensors
Apple is set to release the iPhone14 Pro in September 2022, with its new design including a pill + hole front cutout, a 48MP wide camera, 8K video capture and 8GB RAM.
The new design will reportedly not feature in-display Touch ID sensors after Apple suspended its development to focus on superior camera quality and Face ID. iPhone 14 Pro entered trial production, a stage wherein Apple tests production capabilities of suppliers and ensures quality checks of materials.
Leaks of the iPhone 14 Pro suggest changes to the camera lenses, which will no longer portrude on the back of the smartphone. The selfie camera in the front will come with a pill-shaped punch-hole cutout, one of two punch-hole cutouts on the display, the other one will house the TrueDepth camera system for Face ID.
Lower-end models of the iPhone 14 Pro will be produced by Luxshare, while Foxconn, Apple’s largest supplier, will produce the high-end models. The foundries will now “collect data, correct abnormalities, evaluate the production process and the items that need to be improved, and assess whether the trial production is acceptable.”
