Apple’s iPhone has been the most loyal towards the notch - a design element quickly adapted and moved on from by Android manufacturers across the world. Now, it seems that this will change with the 2022 iPhone, as a recent report has said that the iPhone 14 Pro (unconfirmed) will finally ditch the notch in favour of a hole-punch display. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had, earlier this month, said in a research note that the iPhone 13 Pro successor will be Apple’s main iPhone model to abandon the notch and adopt the hole-punch display.
Apple may expand the hole-punch display design across all iPhone models after an initial adaption on the iPhone 14 Pro in 2022. This, Kuo said in his research note, will depend on the production yield. The research note from TF securities analyst was first procured by AppleInsider. Apart from the hole-punch design, the iPhone 14 models are also expected to come with an upgraded selfie camera at the front with autofocus support.
The Apple analyst had recently said that Apple could be planning to launch its foldable iPhone in 2023 and that the company’s plans to put a USB typ-C port on iPhone instead of a lightning port may have been dropped in favour of the portless design, making MagSafe the charging standard for Apple moving ahead.
Kuo had earlier also predicted that Apple is planning to bring the iPhone SE 3 or iPhone SE (2022) with 5G support. The iPhone SE is reported to come with an upgraded processor, in order to support 5G connectivity. Renders of the iPhone SE 3 have also surfaced in the past, hinting at a flat-edged hole-punch design on the affordable iPhone.
