According to multiple reports, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will retain the usual bangs in the screen cutout, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will get holes in their screens for TrueDepth elements.
If analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is to be believed, those wishing to get an iPhone without any notches at all will have to wait until 2024. That is, unless Apple returns to producing models with the letter S in the name, we’re talking about the iPhone 16 line.
These smartphones will get a sub-screen front camera. Under the display will be located and all the necessary elements for the Face ID function. By the way, this apparently means that we shouldn’t expect any Touch ID under the screen. At least in the next two years. As a matter of fact, Kuo already mentioned earlier that the Touch ID under-screen has disappeared from Apple’s short-term plans.
It’s also not yet clear whether Kuo’s prediction applies to the entire 2024 model year iPhone lineup or just the older models. Given the way Apple usually does things, it’s likely that only the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will still initially boast such an innovation.
