A new supply chain report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo declares that Apple is revamping its Dynamic Island feature to incorporate the iPhone’s proximity sensor.
The proximity sensor is the feature that turns off the iPhone screen when users are on a call and place the phone next to their ear. In the iPhone 14 Pro, the sensor was underneath the display, and just below the Dynamic Island.
In this case, smaller does not mean worse. There should be performance advantages with the smaller wavelength, versus the older component.
