Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman confirmed that Apple will cover the iPhone 14 Pro’s notch.
They look like a wide stripe. He thought the cutouts looked weird on a smartphone, so Apple disabled some of the pixels.
Apple is expected to combine the notch into one
Apple is expected to combine the pill and hole cutouts into a single cutout for a smoother visual experience. The new pill-shaped cutout isn’t on the top of the device, but it looks like a notch. Apple will disable the pixels in the empty space between the two cutouts to simulate a single cutout.
The original source of this morning’s rumor also claimed that Apple will expand the black area around the notch for content purposes. For example, Apple can expand the area to fit the status icons on the left and right, or expand it to a large square for certain notifications.
Only iPhone 14 Pro Models
Only the iPhone 14 Pro models will get the new pill-shaped notch, as the standard iPhone 14 models will continue to use the notch.
