Apple is apparently preparing to revamp the iPhone after recycling the wide notch since 2017. The notch will be replaced by an odd mix of two floating cutouts in the display on this year’s iPhone 14 Pro Max and 14 Pro models. Display Supply Chain Consultants’ CEO, Ross Young, issued a full study on the design changes.

The notch will be divided into two holes in the display, one pill-shaped cutout for FaceID and the other a punch-hole for the front camera, according to Apple. The ‘pill+hole’ design will be limited to the iPhone 14 Pro this year. However, in 2023, the new design will be applied to the complete iPhone 15 family.
That isn’t all, though. In the next years, Apple also intends to simplify the unusual ‘pill+hole’. The Face ID sensors will be relocated to the bottom of the screen. In today’s smartphones, under-display cameras are cutting-edge. The technology has already seen several commercial releases. However, the Face ID feature’s infrared sensors are unable to penetrate conventional OLEDs.

Apple may overcome the problem, according to Young, by making the display more transparent or altering the pixel patterns on the OLED panel. It’s also worth mentioning that both of Apple’s display vendors will be required to build qualified solutions for this issue, making a disguised Face ID system all the more improbable.
According to rumors, Internally, Apple explored under-display fingerprint sensors for impending iPhone pricing increases, but it was shelved since they didn’t match design criteria.
