This is hinted at by leaks, which say that for FaceID Apple will use VCSEL chips, which are 40-50% smaller than before.
The reduced chip will also reduce the overall size of the cutout. It is likely that the same chip for image processing will be used in future iPads with FaceID. And, perhaps, the developers will try to raise the grille of the speaker higher, closer to the top end, which together will make the cut neater. But let’s live to see.
Previous rumors also suggest that the iPhone 13 series may be thicker, and the cutouts for the main camera – more. Two versions of the Pro are expected to receive LTPO AMOLED displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Apple also needs to shamanize the cameras and, of course, the new generation A15 processor.
