With the iPhone 13, Apple made the notch on the iPhone smaller. It was still obvious, but it was smaller. However, the iPhone 14 is expected to feature quite a drastic change on the notch front. This is according to analyst Ross Young from Display Supply Chain Consultants who revealed that the iPhone 14 could adopt a hole and a pill cutout.

The hole cutout in the display has been used by various Android handset makers for the past few years as a way to avoid using the notched design, so this isn’t exactly new. However, what’s interesting is that Apple will adopt two different cutouts for the iPhone 14, one of which will house the TrueDepth sensors used for Face ID and presumably ambient sensors as well, while the other will house the front-facing camera.

The end result is an interesting design, as you can see from the mockup above. To be honest we’re actually digging the look, but whether or not the actual unit will end up looking like this remains to be seen. However, this revelation seems to contradict an earlier report which suggested that Apple might adopt an in-display camera system this year.

In-display front-facing cameras is a piece of tech that many phone makers have been chasing for years. Some have put out such devices, but it has yet to be widely adopted. Presumably this is due to the technical hurdles where putting a camera under the display affects the quality of the camera, something that other companies are still trying to fine tune.
