2020 iPhone models host ToF camera sensor
Many companies are now using ToF cameras on their mobile devices . Apple is a little late in this regard, but in 2020 's future iPhone models are preparing to use the ToF sensor camera.
According to information leaked today, it turns out that Apple has requested one of its supply chain partners to prepare VCSEL components. These components will be used in ToF camera sensors. Apple is expected to develop Face ID and AR applications with this sensor .
The infrared rays of Apple's TrueDepth camera sensor could detect short distances in 3D. The ToF camera sensor measures distances by reflecting light over objects, allowing 3D imaging to reach the longest distance.
ToF cameras using the VCSEL system are expected to be similar to the installation Apple uses for the TrueDepth camera system in the iPhone X and iPhone XS series. Apple, using this system in the new iPhone models will achieve both better results and will produce these sensors for less cost.
Apple continues to invest heavily in ARKit and the AR ecosystem, but the company has not received any AR applications to help expand technology. With the addition of these new ToF cameras to the 2020 iPhones, developers are expected to create more powerful AR applications.
Several analysts known for their leaks think that ToF will bring the camera to the 2020 iPad before adding it to Apple's 2020 iPhones . Finally, let's remind you that the ToF camera sensor will not be used in future devices .
