But the design was widely criticized when the phone came out, and many consider it a blemish on the phone's stunning OLED display.

But Apple was forced to include a small "notch" at the top of the screen to house the camera and Face ID facial recognition sensors.

"According to industries, it is heard that Apple is planning to strengthen face sensing function starting from 2019 models", the report reads. So when users watch a video or play games, the notch gets in the way.

Do you want to see Apple reduce the size of the notch on future iPhones? It appears that Apple is working on this for its 2019 iPhone. If it happens, it will dramatically reduce the number of sensors placed in the notch, giving Apple an opportunity to make the bezels slimmer.

To do that, Apple could combine the infrared camera (the one used for Face ID) and RGB camera into a single module for their next iPhone so they won't require bigger space.

Korean publication ETNews reports that the 2019 iPhones will not be all that notchy. According to ET News, the Cupertino giant is trying to find a way to integrate the Face ID sensors into the front-facing camera in the next-generation iPhones.

But notch or no notch, it seems Apple's Face ID feature isn't going anywhere. It would be a huge challenge for the company.

He also admitted that Apple combining face ID with a camera was likely, saying "we expect more integration into cameras over 2018/2018". The screen reaches just as far at the top of the phone as well, but only on the sides. But it doesn't have enough space to show the battery percentage. LG Innotek's sensors will be used in this year's flagship iPhones as well as the iPad Pro 3.

The TrueDepth Camera is what enables Face ID, an advanced facial recognition system that is far more secure than similar biometric authentication systems on rival phones. The deal with Apple was reportedly finalized after a series of meetings between Apple CEO Tim Cook and LG Innotek chief Park Jong-seok in November.
