iPhone 14 Pro can use pill slot and Face ID under screen

One more rumor bolsters expectations that Apple may abandon the broad notch present in the current generation iPhone 13 to adopt a simpler, less intrusive and more minimalist notch in the more powerful models of the iPhone 14 line.

Following the growing wave of leaks, insider Dylan (@dylandkt on Twitter ) stresses that Apple should place facial recognition sensors under the screen of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max .

Unlike the loss of image quality of the front camera on models like Galaxy Z Fold 3 , Xiaomi Mix 4 and ZTE Axon 30 , moving the infrared and dot projection sensors downwards on the display should not affect the speed or security of the Face ID.

Asked about the shape of the new notch, Dylan says the pill shape is what he's been listening to the most, something similar to what Samsung debuted on the Galaxy S10 Plus and used in several other Android phones since then.

This rumor then indicates that Apple should not adhere to the extremely popular circular notch among Android phones, as this format is too generic and can easily be confused with smartphones from other brands.

By adopting an oblong (pill-shaped) notch at the top center of the screen, it's easy for anyone to recognize that the device is an iPhone, while maintaining a distinctive and easily identifiable visual identity.

iPhone 14: what to expect

Expected for September 2022, Apple's new line of smartphones should abandon the 5.4-inch Mini model and continue betting on four smartphones, but now with two sizes.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max with a 6.1- and 6.7-inch screen would retain the iPhone 13's design and wide notch, but with slight advances in cameras (still with 12 MP sensors), processing and screen.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would also maintain the 6.1 and 6.7 inch screens, but with great evolutions in photography and video thanks to the new 48 MP sensors for 8K ProRes video capture.

We also expect design changes, including camera module flush with the back cover and the aforementioned pill-shaped notch.

To further differentiate the most powerful duo, Apple should bet on A16 Bionic processor with more powerful GPU, even better screens and differentials and exclusive camera features.
