Apple iPhone 14 May Feature a Punch Hole Camera Display


It has been a few months since Apple launched the iPhone 13 series. Enter the new year and the rumour mill has started working on the next iPhone. Dubbed iPhone 14 series, the upcoming Apple smartphone will come with several improvements over its predecessor, if the latest report is to be believed. Mark Gurman from Bloomberg (via MacRumors) claims that the upcoming Apple iPhone will include a much-asked change – the removal of the notch. The analyst claims that Apple will say goodbye to the notch on “some iPhone 14 models” launching later this year. It is being rumoured that the Pro models will get the hole-punch treatment, whereas the standard models will continue to feature the notch.

Apple iPhone 14 display features 

Apple iPhone 14 series will debut in September provided the global supply chain and engineering maintains its currently-improving situation. The company is expected to launch at least four new iPhone 14 models. Two of the new iPhones will have the Pro moniker and are likely to get the hole-punch cutout at the top centre. Introducing the hole punch would mean that the Face ID sensors could be pushed under the display, whereas the front camera will be located inside the cutout.

The Pro models, which are likely to feature a 6.1 and 6.7-inch display, could feature the cutout. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and The Elec had previously stated that the non-Pro devices will continue to house the wide notch. Apple is said to ditch the mini iPhone and instead launch a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 along with a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max. 

The company is also said to use a 48MP main camera sensor on the Pro models. Design renders of the iPhone 14 Pro Max leaked by tipster Jon Prosser reveal that the device will have a triple-camera setup on the back and a titanium build.

Gurman further states that Apple will launch new entry-level MacBook Air with an M2 chip, which will be marginally faster than the M1 chip. The new M-series chip is likely to come with an 8-core CPU like the M1 chip but have a 9-core or 10-core GPU. Other upgrades include the iPad Pro series with wireless charging support, three new Apple Watch models, a new iPhone SE with 5G and the much-rumoured AR/ VR headset. Apple is also expected to launch a smaller Mac Pro with the M-series chip along with a new Mac mini and a larger iMac.
