In addition, MacRumors said that according to the information in the internal memo, Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers will soon be able to replace the Face ID of the iPhone XS and above models, rather than directly replacing the whole machine. Authorized technicians will use the official TrueDepth camera assembly to repair the Face ID failure on iPhone-related models by replacement. Apple said it allowed this practice in order to reduce the number of replacements, as part of its commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of its products.
Apple may completely abandon the notch design on the iPhone 15 series
2022 may be the last year for Apple’s iPhone product line to adopt the notch design, and some analysts said that Apple will replace it with a punch-hole screen on the iPhone 15 series. This kind of design is not new for Android phones, after all, there are already a large number of models with punch-hole screens.
Earlier, it was reported that Apple intends to introduce a punch-hole screen on this year’s iPhone 14 series. However, Apple seems that it is not completely ready, only the punch-hole screen is adopted on the iPhone 14 Pro model, and titanium alloy material is introduced to improve durability. It has been reported that Apple is developing under-screen Face ID technology, and it needs to hide the important components of Face ID under the screen.
It is said that the iPhone 15 series will also have four models like the iPhone 12/13/14 series. Unlike the iPhone 12/13 series, this year’s iPhone 14 series is likely to be the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, canceling the mini version. The iPhone 15 series is likely to continue Apple’s product line layout in the iPhone 14 series.
