It’s been hardly a month since the new iPhones have been revealed and here’s already a development regarding the iPhones of 2019. The reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shed some information regarding the upcoming iPhones of next year that are said to come with upgraded Face ID sensors, according to him.
As spotted by MacRumors, the analyst Kuo suggests that the next-gen iPhones will come with a new flood illuminator VCSEL (vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser) that helps in enhancing Face ID by decreasing the impact of invisible light from the environment.
The report further suggests that Apple might also come up with Time of Flight (ToF) 3D camera for upcoming iPad models. As cited by the story in MacRumors, what this new ToF camera does is it defines the distance between objects by measuring the time-of-flight of a light or laser signal between the subject at each point in the image.
For the iPads, this new 3D camera can be used to capture images that can further be edited with the Apple Pencil for an all-new productivity experience. According to Kuo, this new camera tech might come with iPads in Q4 of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020.
According to Kuo, the new iPhone to be released in 2020 might also adopt this new ToF 3D camera, which can improve the image quality and can also help in experiencing new AR effects.
However, to get the advantage of these new technologies, the report says that Apple would need 5G connectivity for the AR experiences and the new upgraded A13 bionic chips, which would most likely come with new iPads and iPhones next year.
