As we get closer to Apple’s “Far out” event on September 7, more leaks are taking place about the upcoming devices. A new report from MacRumors suggested that the iPhone 14 Pro’s i-shaped notch will appear as one when the screen is turned on. Now an alleged live video is doing the rounds on Chinese social media weibo, indicating that iPhone 14 Pro users can get an option to switch between a unified notch and a split notch.
Apparently, this is possible thanks to the iPhone 14 Pro’s OLED screen, which allows Apple to cut out the pixels between the notches and make it appear as one. The notch will also reportedly house the camera and microphone indicators. Apple is also expected to bring an Always On display to the iPhone 14 Pro series. Keep in mind that the regular iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus — it won’t be called the iPhone 14 Max as previously claimed — will stick with the older wider notch.
The iPhone 14 series could consist of four models, namely the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. While the retail variants will be powered by the A15 chipset developed in-house last year, the iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max will reportedly run on the updated A16 chipset. If true, it will be the first time Apple will use two different processors in a single iPhone series.
In addition to the updated chipset, iPhone 14 series is expected to introduce several new features such as satellite connectivity, always-on display, etc. Speaking of satellite connectivity, Google also recently announced that it will bring satellite connectivity to the next Android version (Android 14 ) and its partners help make the technology possible.
