The iPhone 14 series of smartphones are believed to finally ditch the horrendous notch for a new design. Some expect a Samsung like centred hole-punch design while others speculate that it will carry a pill-shaped camera cutout. Some even claimed that Apple will integrate an in-display fingerprint sensor and will drop the Face ID biometrics altogether.
Ross Young, a display industry consultant, claims that the iPhone 14 Pro models will sport a hole-punch as well as a pill-shaped cutout on the display and calls it the ‘ Hole + Pill’ design. According to Young, the hole-punch will carry the Face ID Dot projector whereas the pill-shaped cutout will house the front camera. He says that the smaller hole-punch will not be an in-display type, refuting previous reports. Also, this suggests that Apple is hell-bent on integrating the Face ID, even if the aesthetics take a hit. This report also shoots down the rumours of the iPhone 14 having an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The images shared by Young were leaked by ShrimpApplePro back in September 2021. The user mentioned that Apple might be working on a 6.1-inch and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max respectively.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, back in 2021, predicted that the future iPhone 14 models may ditch the notch for a trendier hole-punch design. He also stated that the higher iPhone 14 models will sport a 6.7-inch display, while the less expensive variants could make do with smaller 6.1-inch displays. Following that, another renowned leakster, Mark Gurman, in his Bloomberg newsletter, suggested that the iPhone 14 models won’t be getting a hole-punch camera but a pill-shaped cutout instead.
We advise you to take these rumours with a grain of salt. Expect more such information on the iPhone 14 to be leaked close to its launch later this year. Would you like a hole-punch, pill-shaped cutout, or both on the upcoming iPhone 14? Let us know in the comments section below.
