More recently, a number of online sources, among which was the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, reported that next year Apple would abandon the notch in the iPhone screen. The latter was to be replaced by a compact hole for the front camera lens. But if you believe the data that appeared on Weibo, then the notch in the iPhone 14 screen will still remain. Although, in comparison with earlier iPhone models, it should become noticeably smaller.
The new information was shared by an insider known under the nickname PandaIsBald. In the past, he was one of the first to announce Apple’s plans to introduce the iPad 9 as part of a September event.
In addition to the notch in the iPhone 14 screen, PandaIsBald also said that next year Apple is unlikely to be able to equip its smartphones with under-screen Touch ID scanners. What is the reason for such a delay, the insider did not specify.
It is worth noting that earlier Ming-Chi Kuo also announced problems with under-screen fingerprint scanners. According to him, Touch ID may return to the iPhone only in 2023. Recently, an analyst noted that work on the under-screen fingerprint scanner is at an earlier stage than it was thought some time ago.
