iPhone 14 Pro now rumored to feature ‘hole + pill design’ instead of notch


A handful of rumors over the past several months have indicated that Apple plans on ditching the notch design with this year’s iPhone 14 Pro. Initially, it was reported that Apple would adopt a hole-punch design to house the camera, but now reliable analyst Ross Young says that Apple will use a “hole + pill design” on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

For those unfamiliar, Ross Young is an analyst for Display Supply Chain Consultants. As such, his reporting is usually based on indications from the supply chain similar to analysts such as Ming-Chi Kuo. He’s proven to be extremely reliable over the past year, including being the sole analyst to report that the 2021 MacBook Pros would feature mini-LED displays with ProMotion.

Young reports today that this design will be unique to Apple, similar to the notch. On the flip side, a simple hole-punch design would have been very similar to the designs used by Android manufacturers like Huawei and Samsung.

We now believe Apple will have a hole + pill design on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. The smaller hole will not be invisible…The two hole concept will be unique to Apple, like the notch, not similar to all the pill models from Huawei.

This design was first shared in a leaked schematic from an anonymous Twitter account last September. Young is now corroborating that this is the design Apple will use for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. According to the anonymous Twitter account, the camera will be located on the right, while the Face ID system will be located on the left-hand side.
