It’s been widely rumored that bangs will be cut from the iPhone 14 series, but there’s been a lot of debate over exactly what Apple will do with the foreshot and Face ID modules.
According to Ross Young, a display industry consultant, iPhone 14 Pro will have both a punch and a pill-shaped cut near the top of the display, known as an exclamation mark.
The round holes are for the Face ID dot matrix projector. The pill-shaped incision will accommodate at least a front-facing camera and a Face ID infrared camera. And according to the leaked screen panel test photos, the pill-shaped opening is actually on the left and the circular opening is on the right.
Guo Mingqi, a spoiler with a high degree of accuracy, has long claimed that Face ID won’t be moved to until 2023.
Add in this revelation, and maybe the iPhone 14 Pro isn’t going to have an off-screen Face ID design, as has been rumored.
After all, now that Face ID is available, there’s no reason Why Apple shouldn’t bring the off-screen fingerprint back to the iPhone.
Some users also used the information to create a rendering of the top of the next iPhone, which at least looks better than bangs.
