iPhone 14 Pro’s Pill + Hole Camera Cutouts Could Morph Into One Large Pill Cutout When On
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro has long been expected to sport a pill + hole camera arrangement, replacing the notch that has become so familiar since 2017. Now, a new report claims that the pairing might actually look like large, single pill-shaped hole when the iPhone is in use.
MacRumors, citing information provided by an anonymous source, says that the “discrete pill and hole cutouts are not visually separated when the display is powered on, but in fact appear as one contiguous, longer pill shape.”
This is only for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, of course. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are expected to use the same notch as previous models.
Rather than stick with the uneven aesthetic, the suggestion is that Apple has chosen to turn off the pixels in the “dead space” between the cutouts in order to create the appearance of a unified pill shape that is less distracting when viewing content on the screen.
We don’t have too much longer to wait before we will know for sure, of course. Apple is set to announce the iPhone 14 lineup on Wednesday, September 7 and that’s when we will know what each model will look like, what it will cost, and the features it will offer.
We expect the iPhones to go up for pre-order on September 9, with deliveries taking place on September 16 if previous years are any indication.
