iPhone 14 Pro may have a pill-shaped notch when turned on

For the upcoming iPhone 14 that’ll be unveiled this September, rumors have been swirling as to what design and new features the phone will have.

Even though it’ll be cool to see what new changes Apple is bringing to its latest and much-anticipated phone, you may be asking yourself which leak will stick.

According to The Verge, one of those rumors includes a pill-shaped notch that’ll be found on the new phone. The thing is leakers have long suggested that 2022 iPhone models would include two notches at the top of their screens: one for the camera, and one for the FaceID system. But a new leak from MacRumors, citing “an anonymous tipster,” suggests that the two notches will appear as a single pill-shaped notch when the iPhone’s display is active.

According to MacRumors’ source, Apple plans to turn off the pixels between these two notches to create a contiguous black space, The Verge reported.

Additionally, the source claims that Apple “intends to visually expand the blacked-out areas around the cutouts to host content.”

What does that potentially mean for iPhone 14 users?

So, in other words, the iPhone might make use of this black space, and could change the size of the notch depending on those purposes, The Verge reported.

If you think about it, the leak coincides with recent patents that have been published, including proposals to separate the phone’s IR light emitter from the primary notch.

“The IR light emitter may be placed at a location with less-constrained space and use the light folding element to project the IR light in a specific direction,” the description regarding those patent claims reads. “This can reduce the overall size of the imaging and sensing components, thus decreasing size of a notch for holding the imaging and sensing component and increasing the display area of ​​the device.”

Of course, Sept 7 is right around the corner, so we’ll just have to wait and see which rumor truly sticks this time. – pennlive.com/Tribune News Service
