Will Apple finally start getting rid of the notch? According to several rumors, yes! Indeed, several sources agree that on the iPhone 14 series, which will be released in September, the Pro and Pro Max models will not have a notch.
Without the notch, the front sensors (the camera for selfies and the Face ID sensor) would thus be positioned on holes drilled on the screen. Unfortunately, we would not have a small bubble like on Android smartphones, but a bubble and a pullula instead of the notch.
iPhone 14 Pro bubble and pill might take up more space than expected
And apparently, this device on the screen of the future iPhone 14 Pro, to replace the notch, is likely to be very bulky. In any case, this is what is suggested by a recent video published by youtuber Jon Prosser, a source that is generally well informed.
In the video, Prosser relays a post that appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo that would show what the front of an iPhone 14 series model will look like. The youtubeur indicates that he was able to independently verify the veracity of the info.

And according to Jon Prosser, this leak suggests that the bubble and the pill on this facade would take up more space than expected. Indeed, on the renders that had appeared so far, the bubble and the pill were a bit smaller.
To illustrate this, Jon Prosser made an image overlay to show the difference. And this one is quite important.

According to this new leak, the disappearance of the notch will therefore not save much space on the screen. Note that in his video, Prosser mentions the iPhone 14 series, but not specifically the iPhone 14 Pro or the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Nevertheless, many sources agree that on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max there will still be a notch.
While waiting for September, Apple should soon release a new iPhone SE with an A15 chip and 5G
Of course, at the moment, this information is unofficial. And it is possible, even certain, that before the release of the iPhone 14 series in September, new leaks may appear on the web and contradict what is stated in this article.
It is also recalled that before releasing the iPhone 14 series in the second half, Apple should release a new iPhone SE this first half. Moreover, rumors indicate that the presentation of this new affordable smartphone, which should support 5G, could take place this March. And in addition to the new smartphone, the firm could also present a new iPad Air, as well as one or two new Macs.
