Apple would have finally succeeded in integrating all the components of its sensor TrueDepth (the one used for Face ID) below the screen. Without altering its functionality of course, a sign that face recognition should continue to function correctly on the models affected by this change. Unsurprisingly, it would be the iPhone 14 Pro.
Once again it is @dylandkt which is at the origin of this rumor. The account is not at its first attempt, since it also seems to know more about the external monitors that Apple is preparing to come with its Pro Display XDR.
For the source, the iPhone 14 Pro will therefore say goodbye to the notch in favor of a simple pill-shaped punch. Nothing very surprising so far, since other mobiles also offer a similar design, for example the nova 9 Pro at Huawei or the Redmi K30, edited by Xiaomi. But by looking at the characteristics of these two devices, we realize a small difference …
Pill shaped is what I am hearing.

Indeed, unlike current iPhones, these laptops are equipped with two cameras in the front. However, it does not seem that this is what Apple plans for its next articles, at least nothing in this direction has been published so far. Does the firm at the apple therefore find it difficult to integrate all its sensors under the slab? Or will consumers finally be able to count on better selfies? Mystery…
Sizes, prices and availability
The iPhone 14 Pro should be available in two formats: a large 6.7-inch model (the iPhone 14 Pro Max) and a more compact 6.1-inch, the names of course still to be validated. They will probably cost more than a thousand euros, as for their predecessors.
For the release date, the appointment may be set at thefall, as usual. The presentation is expected around September.
