Apple Readies 3D Sensing Rear Camera Component Supplies for 2020 iPhones
Multiple sources claim that Apple will use a ToF camera on the 2020 iPhones but for AR rather than portraits. According to supply chain sources, Apple has asked their suppliers to ready VCSEL components for their ToF cameras that will allow to scan up to 15 feet away from the device. Apple is said to have a 2 year lead in 3D sensing over their competitors and Sony may be the ToF supplier even though Apple has been investing in other companies as well. Along with this we should also expect 5G, AR glasses and better Apple Maps to use these cameras at their full potential.
