Apple is planning on adding a rear-facing 3D-scanning camera for the 2019 iPhone models

Currently, Apple offers 3D-sensing only on the front-facing TrueDepth Camera found on the Apple iPhone X. There is speculation that all three of Apple's 2018 releases will include the front-facing TrueDepth camera along with next year's iPad Plus. But a report published today indicates that by 2019, Apple has plans to offer 3D-sensing on the rear-facing iPhone camera as well. And the company is working on new technology that would be used instead of the currently employed dot projector that uses 30,000 laser dots to map a face. The system being worked on for the rear-facing 3D-sensing ...

Apple is working on a rear-facing 3D sensor for future generation iPhones, according to a new Bloomberg report. A 3D sensor on the back of the iPhone would be helpful in augmented reality applications. Apple is evaluating a different technology from the one it currently uses in the TrueDepth sensor system on the front of the iPhone X, the people said. The existing system relies on a structured-light technique that projects a pattern of 30,000 laser dots onto a user’s face and measures the distortion to generate an accurate 3-D image for authentication
