I wouldn’t put it past apple to “disable” the dot projector to sell more devices like they tried to do with error 53, bricking iPhone X and 8 series when their screens were replaced, and slowing down older phones to sell new ones.

@Bart cameras can pick up infrared light so if you have another camera or phone on hand you could test it that way.

When something breaks, it is because it broke, not some software update excuse.

People look for excuses all the time.

same as with iPhone X?

Same as slowing down iPhone when partially good battery?

"Partially good" means bad.

Also slowing down iPhone is Apple messed up buying bad batteries, the slowing down part is logical.
