Apple to ditch the notch and develop in-display Touch ID sensor

However, the 2020 and 2021 iPhones are expected to be much more exciting.

However, Apple is going to add a new camera system along with extra lenses, which is going to have a good camera quality than its predecessors.

A second report from Credit Suisse (via China Times) says that Apple's suppliers are developing full-screen displays without notches, suggesting that Face ID might go away for good by 2021. While reducing the notch-size appears to be a short-term goal, in the long run, Apple will quite likely have a completely notch-free screen. The news outlet also claims that Apple will use its own under-screen fingerprinting technology rather than using a third-party component.

India could also help Apple reduce reliance on Chinese manufacturing plants.

"iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 are being exported in quantities of under 100,000 units a month", said Neil Shah, research director at Counterpoint Research, citing export data that the firm tracks.

Trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also makes similar claims. This seems to suggest that although the notch will be there, it will be smaller and slimmer.

Instead, the analysts predict the first notch-free iPhone will come in 2020, with the iPhone 12 series - but not all of them. Only the iPhone XS and XS Max have pressure-sensitive screens at the moment, with the iPhone XR already dismissing the feature, presumably in an effort to keep the cost down and to increase the screen-to-body ratio.

The new range of iPhones are expected to feature OLED displays with varying screen sizes of 5.4-inches, 6.1-inches and 6.7-inches.

2019: three new iPhone launches without any changes to touch and Face ID.

The TrueDepth camera that powers Face ID requires several front-facing sensors that occupy plenty of space, hence the need for a notch.

Additionally, the notchless iPhone that will be released in 2020 will feature an under-screen front camera and acoustic fingerprint authentication that is full screen.
