Nearly a year has passed since the initial speculations surfaced that Apple's forthcoming iPhone 14 Pro versions will have both pill-shaped and hole-punch cutouts towards the top of the display. Although reputable analysts have since confirmed this design choice, it is still unclear how Apple's software will handle the cutouts when the iPhone display is on. We might have received a new piece of the puzzle today.
The discrete pill and hole cuts are not visibly distinguished when the display is switched on, but rather appear as one continuous, longer pill shape, according to information given to MacRumors by an anonymous tipster.
It is hypothesised that Apple turned off the pixels in the "dead area" between the cuts rather than continuing with the uneven look to provide the impression of a cohesive pill shape that is less obtrusive when watching material on the screen.
The insider also states that Apple plans to visually enlarge the blacked-out regions around the cutouts to host content, which is an exciting new development. Apple might, for instance, enlarge the space to include status symbols on the left and right sides.
The same unified pill software approach has been suggested by talk Press release has seen on Chinese social media networks that appears to be coming from Foxconn workers involved in the manufacture of the iPhone 14 Pro. These sources, like the original tipper, have not been validated, and we are merely providing the material to our readers with the customary disclaimers as a starting point for debate.
The new iPhone 14 series will be unveiled at Apple's "Far Out" media event on next Wednesday, September 7, so we'll know for sure whether this last-minute rumour is accurate. A 6.7-inch iPhone Max, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max are all anticipated. This year, there won't be a 5.4-inch iPhone "mini," with2/9/2022 |
