According to a report, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max – Apple’s next high-end smartphone models – could feature cutouts that appear as a single contiguous pill when the phone is in use. Over the past year, several leaks and reports have prompted Apple to replace the notch in its smartphones with a hole-shaped and pill-shaped cutout. The latest report suggests that the Cupertino company’s upcoming smartphones could display the two cutouts as a long pill when the screen is on.
According to a MacRumors report citing an anonymous tipster, the display cutouts on the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will appear as a unified pill when the phone is in use. Instead of displaying a punch-hole cutout and a pill-shaped cutout, Apple is prompted to turn off the pixels on the screen between the two cutouts – thanks to the handset’s OLED screens.
Meanwhile, the report also states that rumors on Chinese social media, said to come from Foxconn employees familiar with the manufacturing process, suggest that the company will opt for a single pill design when the smartphone is used.
While Apple has yet to announce details of a redesigned display, including new cutouts for upcoming iPhone Pro models, industry tipsters and analysts have repeatedly suggested that Apple’s smartphones will company could see a new design for the first time since Apple introduced the iPhone X in 2017.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to debut alongside the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max next week, according to reports. The company has announced that its next “Far out” event will take place on September 7. The event will be broadcast live from the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, Calif., and Apple is also expected to launch new iPad models with its watch. Series 8 at the event.
