Lucknow: The rumours of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 13 series has already become the talk of the town for quite some time now. What has been the most consistent rumour is the inclusion of a much smaller notch than the one seen on the current iPhone 12 phones. Now, it doesn’t seem hard to guess why.

According to the sources, the upcoming iPhones are expected to make room for a major Face ID change, which seemingly contributes to the shrinking notch. Read on to know more about it. 

iPhone 13 will supposedly have a small Face ID chip too. 

As per a reports, Apple is planning to decrease the size of the VCSEL chips by 40 to 50 per cent for its iPhone 13 lineup. Let us tell you that these are the same chips used in the 3D mapping tech in Face ID. Up till now, no such information has been provided on why the small Face ID chip. Although, chances are that the change could be to add more capabilities to Apple’s facial recognition system.

Since, the tech giant plans to decrease the size of the Face ID chip, it will result in a small notch, which is something we have been hearing for a while now. The change in the size of the notch is also expected to change the position of the earpiece (which will shift to the top bezel) and the speaker grille, which as per reports expected to feature on the top bezel. If this happens, Apple is expected to make these minor design changes to its future iPad models that will support Face ID.
