One of the great novelties brought by the iPhone 14 was the Dynamic Island feature, which was quite successful among iOS users.
But it seems that Apple has other plans and will abandon this useful feature in the iPhone 16 series. And the new concept may have the same or even more success among users.
iPhone 16 can exchange Dynamic Island for cameras built into the screen

When the new iPhone 14 series arrived, the most advanced models came with the practical Dynamic Island feature that took advantage of the “dead space” next to the camera to display notifications. This feature quickly became a hit with iOS users.
So successful is it that in the iPhone 15 series all models must already be equipped with the Dynamic Island feature. But it looks like Apple is going to change everything, again, in the iPhone 16 series that is expected to launch in 2024.
According to the most recent rumors, Apple is preparing to embed the front cameras and Face ID on the screen of the most advanced models of the iPhone 16. This means that these smartphones will abandon such successful functionality.
But not everything is bad news. The less advanced models of the iPhone 16 (i.e. the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus) should retain functionality. In other words, the feature will not be immediately dropped from the entire series.
The idea of embedding cameras under the smartphone screen is not new. By the way, Samsung, Apple’s competitor, already does, the best example being the foldable Galaxy Z Fold4. But currently, the available technology only allows to embed cameras with lower resolutions.
Since Apple is known for waiting to improve existing technology before introducing it into its equipment, only the iPhone 16 series can make this “leap”. Until then, both Samsung and Apple can work in this field and find a solution that allows sensors with higher resolutions to be placed under the screen of their smartphones.
