Apple iPhone 14 leaked render

iPhone 14 will be the successor to last year’s iPhone, and we’ve so far heard contradictory rumors regarding whether it’ll have a notch or a punch-hole display. Today, reliable tipster @dylandkt claims that the next-generation iPhone 14 Pro will feature a pill-shaped camera cutout to make a room for the selfie camera. So, it’s neither a notch nor a punch hole, according to the tipster.

The tipster also claims that the Face ID hardware will house under the display of the iPhone 14. And the fact that it’s under the display won’t negatively impact the reliability of the Face ID.

It’s worth noting that the regular iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will continue to feature the notch, much like the iPhone 13. In other words, in the case of non-Pro models, housing the Face ID hardware will be the notch.

This isn’t the first time we’re hearing rumors of Apple ditching the notch in iPhone 14 Pro models. Both Ming-Chi Kuo and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman confirmed that the Pro models won’t have the notch(via Macrumors). Neither of them, however, went into details about what will replace the notch. However, display industry consultant, Ross Young previously claimed that the Pro models will have the Face ID under the display.

If you’re using an iPhone., do you prefer the notch over a punch hole or pill-shaped camera cut out? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments section.
