As we get closer to Apple’s “elusive” event on September 7, there are more leaks about upcoming devices. New report from Mac rumors Suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro’s i-shaped notch appears as one when the screen is turned on. Now, an alleged live video is spreading on Chinese social media Weibo, Which suggests that iPhone 14 Pro users may get the option to switch between the standard notch and the split notch.
Apparently, this is possible due to the OLED display of the iPhone 14 Pro, which allows Apple to turn off the pixels between the cracks and make them appear as one. It is said that the notch will also house the camera and microphone indicators. Apple is also expected to introduce an Always On display for the iPhone 14 Pro series. Keep in mind that the regular iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus – they won’t be called the iPhone 14 Max as previously claimed – will stick with the older wider notch.
The iPhone 14 series may consist of four models, which are iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. While the non-Pro variants will be powered by the in-house developed A15 chipset last year, the iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max are said to be powered by the updated A16 chipset. If true, it would be the first time Apple has introduced two different processors in a single iPhone series.
Besides the updated chipset, the iPhone 14 series is expected to introduce many new features like satellite calling, 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 help its partners enable the technology.
