Another (very ugly) version of the Dynamic Island from Apple

Once is not customary, here are our colleagues from MacRumors, English-speaking media, spoil us with new images of designs imagined by Apple but never released. This time, it's the Dynamic Island which is in the spotlight. For those who have never heard of it, know that it is the little animated pill that replaces the notch at the top of the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. We should also find it on the four iPhone 16 models which are expected to arrive in the Apple Store no later than next September.

Among the different interfaces tested internally by Apple, we find one that looks very similar to the possibilities offered by the Control Center. With this solution, it would have been possible to activate Wi-Fi directly from the Dynamic Island. The same goes for Bluetooth or the GPS sensor. A significant advantage for confidentiality, especially since Cupertino appreciates regularly putting forward this argument within its various marketing operations. The reality, for its part, is quite different: it is not uncommon for the American giant to be singled out for its more than questionable collection of personal data.

Change to come, and not the least!

La Dynamic Islandplease ? Bad luck: this one won't last. Apple's unsightly little island should therefore be replaced by a simple punch shortly. The iPhone 17 Pro could be the first to be entitled to it, the said punch aiming above all to hide the FaceTime HD camera installed on the front. Patents demonstrate, however, that the manufacturer knows how to design models of sensors installed under the screen, but the technology therefore apparently is not yet ready for mass production.

If only the punch would be present on the front, it is because Apple would have planned to make the TrueDepth sensor invisible, because it is placed under the screen. This component allows Face ID to work correctly, the biometric unlocking technology being present on the front since the iPhone X, released in 2017. Face recognition is also present on iPad Pro, and could even arrive on certain MacBook Pro models in the years to come. Here again, these are drawings filed with the USPTO which allow us to make such comments.

No more visible sensors: soon at Apple

In the very long term, it is also rumored that Apple plans to release an iPhone without the slightest sensor visible at the top of its front panel. The twelve megapixel lens, which we owe to the brains of subcontractor Sony, would therefore also pass under the screen, as with many manufacturers publishing under Android such as the Asians Samsung or Oppo. Many users have already praised its photo capabilities, in fact even Elon Musk appreciates the photos captured on the iPhone. We can bet that Tim Cook's company will be able to maintain these assets with its next premium mobiles.

The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro are expected with the Dynamic Island for September 2023. It is at this time, every year, that Apple presents its new premium smartphones. The size of the screens could for the occasion be revised upwards, even if the change may not be immediately visible to the naked eye. At the same time, rumors suggest that the iPhone 16 Pro will be entitled to x5 zoom like the iPhone 16 Pro Max, while today only the # 8217;iPhone 15 Pro Max takes advantage of this advantage. To the detriment of the iPhone 15 Pro, despite a very similar positioning.

  • Apple imagined several designs of the Dynamic Island before the one we know
  • Soon , the Dynamic Island could give way to a simple punch
  • Then, all the front cameras of the ;#8217;iPhone will probably be installed under the screen
  • The competition has known how to do it for a long time, and Apple has also mastered the technology
