Second rumor echoes ‘shorter’ iPhone 13 notch design

The rumor: Apple is taking a different kind of approach to shrinking the notch on the 2021 iPhones, according to Jon Prosser (79.2% accurate).


  • Rather than moving inward, the notch may simply be moving upward on iPhone 13 (same width but shorter)
  • This echoes an earlier report from IceUniverse, who also reported that this would be the design

Our take: While I certainly don’t want this as much as a skinnier notch design, this is a step in the right direction. If I’m being honest, this change feels subtle, and I could definitely see Apple moving forward this way.
