It has long been rumored that the new iPhone series will have a double notch on the display. One for the camera and one for the FaceID system – or to put it like Ross Young, the “hole + pill design“. And now a leak from MacRumors, citing “an anonymous tipster”, suggests the two notches will appear as a single pill-shaped notch when the iPhone 14 Pro display is active. An indiscretion also confirmed by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.

According to recent MacRumors rumors, Apple intends to disable the Pixels between the two display notches of the iPhone 14 Pro to create one contiguous black space. Furthermore, according to the source cited by the portal, the Cupertino company “intends to visually expand the darkened areas around the clippings to host the contents“. 9to5Mac, on the other hand, reports that Apple plans to use this space to display green and orange indicators camera and microphone, which currently reside in the status bar. A change that could make privacy indicators significantly more noticeable than they are now. This way users will be able to tap the indicators to see a list of Apps that have accessed the microphone or camera.

Furthermore, the 9to5Mac report also mentions that the Camera App iPhone 14 could undergo a little redesign. There expandable control bar moves at the top of the screen, instead of rising from the bottom. In any case, all of these rumors find confirmation in the recent patents that have been published, including proposals to separate the phone’s IR light emitter from the main notch. “The IR light emitter can be placed in a place with less space, and the folding element can be used to project the IR light in a specific direction,” reads one of the patents.

“This can reduce the overall size of the imaging and sensing components, thereby decreasing the size of a notch to hold the imaging and sensing component, and increasing the viewing area of ​​the device.” In short, the rumors of the anonymous source seem to find confirmation almost everywhere. With the display active, the iPhone 14 Pro will show only one notch on the display. In any case, if you still have doubts, we are sure that the event of 7 September will clarify them for you.
