Apple is doing away with the notch for some of the iPhone 14 models, and rumors suggest it’s the Pro models that will get the notchless design.
Rather than a notch, Apple is going to go with a smaller set of cutouts on the display. Originally, rumors said that Apple would introduce a single circular hole-punch cutout to accommodate the front-facing camera, but subsequent information indicates there won’t be a single cutout — Apple is likely adding two.
Display analyst Ross Young expects to see both a pill-shaped cutout and a circular cutout. The circular cutout will likely house the front camera, and the pill-shaped cutout will include the Face ID hardware and possibly other components. Leaked images on Chinese social networking site Weibo says the round cutout will measure in at 5.631mm.
Apple may also be planning to put some of the Face ID hardware under the iPhone’s display, which will cut down on the sizes of the cutouts that are needed and will leave more available screen space on the front of the device, but it’s not yet clear if this will happen.
