iPhone 17 Pro to Reportedly Debut Under-Display Face ID
According to an updated roadmap shared by display analyst Ross Young, Apple will debut under-display Face ID technology with the ‘iPhone 17 Pro,’ MacRumors reports.
Young claims that the under-display Face ID technology will, however, be accompanied by a circular cutout for the front-facing camera.
Apple is not expected to move the camera under the display for a true all-screen appearance before 2027’s “Pro” iPhone models, says the analyst.

It must be noted that last year, Young said that 2024’s iPhone 16 Pro models will be the first to feature under-panel Face ID technology, but now, his forecast has changed.
The analyst blames “sensor issues” for this one-year delay, suggesting the Dynamic Island will likely persist through at least 3 iPhone generations.
Alongside under-panel Face ID technology, the iPhone 17 Pro models are also expected to feature Apple’s ProMotion display technology, according to Young.
