Leaker Says iPhone 14 Pro to Feature Pill-Shaped Camera Cutout With Face ID Under the Display

iPhone 14 Pro models will feature a pill-shaped camera cutout at the top of the display, with the notch removed, according to tweets shared by leaker @dylandkt, who has proven to be a reliable source of Apple-related rumors over the last year or so. To accommodate this change, the leaker said Face ID hardware will be moved under the display.

iPhone 14 Mock Pill
While it has been widely reported that iPhone 14 Pro models will not have a notch by reputable sources like analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, this is the first time we've heard about the possibility of a pill-shaped camera cutout at the top of the display instead of a circular hole-punch cutout that was originally rumored.

Face ID moving under the display has likewise been rumored previously by display industry consultant Ross Young, who has proven to be a reliable source of display-related information for future Apple products. Last year, for example, Young accurately claimed that the new iPad mini would feature an 8.3-inch display with the home button removed.

In a tweet, @dylandkt said he has been assured that Face ID's reliability will not be negatively affected by the under-display change.


Apple is rumored to be planning a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max for release in September of this year. The lineup is also expected to include a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, and as of now it appears that these models will continue to have a notch, with a pill-shaped camera cutout limited to Pro models.

Last year, @dylandkt shared accurate information about products like the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro before they were released.

“The notch is a non issue” claim the Apple faithful. If so, why would Apl spend untold millions of dollars in R&D and new hardware to get rid of it?

Apparently they hate it just as much as the general public haters do too

This is awesome!

I’m glad that the front facing camera is going to be built into the screen and take up less space on this year’s iPhone

That will allow Apple to put more useful information in the status bar on the top of the iPhone

I’m definitely planning on getting the iPhone 14 once it’s released this September
