iPhone 14's dual notch functionality has been spotted ahead of Apple's September 7 event.
Apple will most likely disable the pixels between the hole punch and the pill-shaped cutouts.
The iPhone 14 launch event will take place on September 7. Apple will unveil four new iPhone models during its Far Out event. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to receive significant upgrades this year over non-Pro models.
Apple is said to be ditching the notch in favor of a pill-shaped cutout and a hole punch cutout. The Face ID sensors and front camera will be housed in the cutouts. A new leak revealed how the dual notch setup on the Pro models would work just days before the official unveiling.
Apple will most likely disable the pixels between the hole punch and the pill-shaped cutouts. The reason for doing so is not only for aesthetic reasons but also for functional ones. According to reports, the camera and mic indicator will be placed in the space between the two cutouts. When an app uses the camera or microphone, a green or orange dot appears at the top of the screen. According to reports, Apple will use the space between the cutouts for this feature.
When not in use, the pixels between the two cutouts are backed out, giving the appearance of a single wide pill-shaped cutout. Of course, since the dual notch setup is limited to Pro models this year, the privacy indicators will most likely be placed in the top right corner of the standard iPhone 14 and 14 Max/ 14 Plus.
Some mocked-up renders of the upcoming redesign have been posted on the MacRumours forum, providing us with a better idea of how the setup might look.
