Guo Mingpi: The iPhone will be equipped with ToF lens in 2020

Although the iPhone hasn't been released yet in 2019, rumors about the iPhone in 2020 are flying all over the world.

In addition to 5G technology, Guo predicts that some models of next year's iPhone will also be equipped with rear ToF lenses to build 3D images and achieve "revolutionary AR experience" with 5G high-speed connections.

In fact, there has been a lot of rumors about the ToF lens on the iPhone next year, after Bloomberg reported that in 2020, the iPhone will use VSCEL technology to improve the ability of 3D image recording. Compared with FaceID, it has a wider scope of work. It can scan objects about 4.5 meters away and draw corresponding 3D image data.

The Taiwan-based Economic Times also reported in July that Lumentum, which supplies FaceID components, had received a message from Apple asking for a post-ToF component by the end of 2019, and that Apple is expected to launch a post-ToF lens on its iPhone next year.

ToF technology relies on the sensor to emit modulated near-infrared light. When the object is reflected, the sensor converts the distance of the object to generate depth information by calculating the time difference or phase difference of light emission and reflection. In addition, combined with traditional camera shooting, the three-dimensional contour of the object can be represented by different colors. Topographic maps of the same distance are presented. Compared with FaceID, ToF can capture 3D images faster and more accurately, which will help Apple promote the development of AR ecology.
