The rumor: Apple’s smaller notch introduced on iPhone 13 may be short-lived, according to Dylandkt (77.5% accurate).
- Apple is planning to replace the notch with a “pill shaped” cutout with the camera and Face ID hardware placed under the display for the first time
- An image of what the the pill-shaped design could look like was first shared on Twitter months ago by ShrimpApplePro, who has shared some credible information in the past
Our take: Pill shaped looks significantly better to me than a circular cutout, so I really hope this is the design that Apple settles on. That being said, we’re still a few months away from the iPhone 14 design being finalized so there’s time for things to change.
