iPhone 12 Pro Rear Glass Photo Shows Camera Layout With LiDAR Scanner

A photo of what appears to be the rear glass of the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro have been shared online by Twitter user "Mr. White."

The images appear to show two ‌iPhone‌ rear glass parts in Space Gray, with one having an extra cut out below the ultrawide lens hole, likely for a LiDAR scanner. There are also holes for three camera lenses and a TrueTone LED flash, which suggests these are both from "pro" models.

The exact models that each of the rear glass panels is from are unclear since no other edges are visible in the picture. It is possible that one is the 6.7-inch "iPhone 12 Pro Max", and the other is the smaller 6.1-inch ‌iPhone‌ 12 Pro. This would mean that the 6.1-inch ‌iPhone‌ 12 Pro does not have the LiDAR scanner, leaving it exclusively for the 6.7-inch "‌iPhone 12 Pro Max‌," which has been supported by previous rumors.

Alternately, if both ‌iPhone‌ 12 Pro models are to feature LiDAR, then the glass without the additional hole for the scanner may in fact be from the current ‌iPhone‌ 11 Pro.

At least one model of the ‌iPhone‌ 12 Pro has been widely reported to have a LiDAR scanner, first seen on the 2020 iPad Pro, to sense depth and improve AR experiences.

Update: An alleged ‌iPhone 12 Pro Max‌ case recently surfaced on Chinese social media website Weibo (via MyDrivers) with a matching triple-lens camera and LiDAR Scanner layout.

Nothing annoys/worries me more than rumors that the smaller PRO will be missing features!

Every year, Apple makes it harder for people with trypophobia to buy an iPhone.

I wish Apple would stop putting features like LIDAR that maybe only a tiny fraction of the population might care about. They talk about it in their keynotes like its some game changing feature, when 99.9% of the population will never use it. Augmented Reality isn't a thing, and there is no evidence that its going to be a thing. I just don't get their fascination with it and all they do is use it to justify jacking up the price of their phones.

Does anyone besides real estate agents use the LiDAR scanner on their iPads Pro?

I have absolutely no use for it. Got my iPad back in March and only used the LiDAR an hour on this "LiDAR testing" app. Other than that, it is just there. I hope Apple really make use of it later on.
