The rumor: Apple is slimming down the bezels on the flagship iPhones this year even further, according to ShrimpApplePro (not yet tracked).
- According to the leak, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have bezels measuring 1.95mm, compared to 2.42mm on iPhone 13 Pro Max…that’s nearly a 20% reduction
- With the notch being removed in favor of the pill + hole design, the iPhone 14 looks to have a uniform housing around the display for the first time ever
Sam’s take: I don’t know what it is about these latest CAD images…but I’m starting to get it now. By eliminating the notch in favor of the “i” design, we’re getting equal bezels on every side of the device early. Sure, the dual cutout looks odd, but don’t the perfectly symmetrical bezels look better?
