There isn’t any word on why the small Face ID chip. Although, chances are that the change could be to add more capabilities to Apple’s facial recognition system.
Since the Cupertino tech major plans to decrease the size of the Face ID chip, which will result in a small notch, something we have been hearing for a while now. The change in the size of the notch is also expected to change the position of the earpiece (which will shift to the top bezel) and the speaker grille, which is also expected to feature on the top bezel.
If this happens, Apple is expected to make these minor design changes to its future iPad models that will support Face ID.
