Apple’s 2025 iPhone 17 Pro reported to reportedly feature under-display Face ID tech

Starting with the iPhone 17, all standard iPhones will reportedly feature variable refresh rates up to 120Hz

Apple’s iPhone 17 Pro will be the first iPhone to offer under-display Face ID technology, according to a new report from display analyst Ross Young.

Young shared an updated timeline on Twitter, revealing that he believes Apple will introduce under-display Face ID technology with the iPhone 17 Pro in 2025.

The report also suggests that the iPhone 17 Pro will still have a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. Young expects Apple to eliminate the hole-punch cutout and move the camera under the display with the iPhone 19 Pro in 2027, essentially achieving a truly bezel-less, all-screen design.

It’s worth noting that last year, Ross stated that he expects the iPhone 16 Pro to come with under-display Face ID, while even the standard iPhone 17 in 2025 would feature under-display Face ID. As it appears in the updated timeline, we’ll see the first Under panel Face ID with a hole punch front camera in the iPhone 17 Pro in 2025, and upgrade to a completely bezel-less under display design by 2027.

Further, the updated timeline also suggests that starting in 2025 with the iPhone 17, all standard iPhone models will use an LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) backplane technology for the display. This means that starting with the iPhone 17, all standard iPhones will have variable refresh rates up to 120Hz, a feature that’s currently exclusive to the iPhone Pro models.
