iPhone 15 Dynamic Island with new integrated proximity sensor

This year, all iPhone 15 models will include Apple’s Dynamic Island, which unifies the pill and punch cutouts at the top of the display, but there will also be a major change to the feature that wasn’t present in the iPhone 14 Pro models.

According to a new tweet from Apple industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the “iPhone 15” series’ proximity sensor will be integrated into the “dynamic island” area instead of sitting underneath.

On the iPhone 14 Pro, the proximity sensor is under the display (outside the Dynamic Island). Conversely, in the iPhone 15 series, the proximity sensor is located inside the Dynamic Island, with almost no change in Dynamic Island area.

The proximity sensor detects when the user puts the phone to their ear and turns off the screen. As Kuo says, the tweak is unlikely to result in a difference in the look or functionality of the Dynamic Island, but it will mark a change in components that may be prompted to reduce costs.

According to Kuo, Apple supplier Finisar will move to equip Apple with 940nm proximity sensors, compared to 1380nm on the “iPhone 14 Pro”.

Apple is expected to launch the ‘iPhone 15’ range in September as usual. Everything we know about what’s new in the new models can be found in our dedicated summaries using the links below.
