According to relevant media reports, affected by the epidemic, Apple recently held its annual shareholder meeting online.
Apple CEO Tim Cook reviewed Apple’s outstanding performance in 2020 and answered questions about corporate mergers and acquisitions, the impact of the epidemic, and the company’s supply chain.
It is worth noting that although Cook did not directly announce any relevant details of the follow-up products, he revealed: “iPhone will usher in exciting things.”
This seems to confirm some speculations about the iPhone 13 before.
As we all know, as a global technology giant, Apple’s iPhone has not been able to bring innovation-leading designs in recent years.
Since the launch of the iPhone 12 series, there has been a steady stream of news about the iPhone 13. The most surprising news is that the machine is expected to cancel the notch area and achieve a true full screen.
According to previous news, Apple is testing the iPhone 13 series with no bangs internally. The source said that the machine will have the same width of the four borders of the screen. The visual effect of the whole machine is very shocking. It once again subverts the design of the mobile phone screen and leads the mobile phone industry. Design trend.
It is reported that Apple recently filed a patent application called “Photodetector Integrated into Thin Film Transistor Backplane” in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
The patent confirms that Apple is developing under-screen sensor technology. They are trying to place the camera, depth sensor, biometric sensor and other sensors under the screen, which can be completely hidden, thus achieving a mobile phone screen without bangs.
In addition, this technology can also achieve a function similar to under-screen fingerprint recognition, and is a step further than the current under-screen fingerprint in the Android camp, and can realize fingerprint, palmprint and retina biometric technology.
Apple will be equipped with both Face ID and screen fingerprints in the iPhone 13 series to cope with the problem of insufficient face ID recognition of masks under the current epidemic.
At the same time, iPhone 13 will further upgrade its core performance, equipped with the latest generation of A15 bionic processor, using TSMC’s second-generation 5nm process, which can further reduce power consumption and improve the endurance performance of 5G iPhone, which is worth looking forward to.
