Apple iPhone 14 Pro to ditch the notch– As always, there are several leaks about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 series, which will debut in September 2022. It is reported that Apple is ditching the notch in favor of two cutouts, including a pill-shaped hole for Face ID, according to Ice Universe. Since the iPhone X launched in 2017, Apple has been introducing the notch.
A previous report already hinted at this upcoming design change, which is in line with the latest leak. A second cutout will be used for the front-facing camera, while the other will be for the Face ID dot projector.
Although Apple has not announced when its upcoming lineup will be announced, it seems pretty clear that the Pro and non-Pro models will differ significantly. The rest of the information we know about the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max can be found here.
It is the display that will be one of the major differences between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro. Although Apple will use Samsung OLED panels for both Pro and non-Pro models, it appears the Pro model will be equipped with Samsung M12 OLED panels.
A TFT OLED screen made from polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) with a dynamic refresh rate ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz, the M12 is a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) screen.
In addition, an Always-On display is expected to be part of the iPhone 14 Pro series. There are also indications of this in Apple’s SwiftUI preview in Xcode 1. SwiftUI lets developers see real-time changes to apps. Furthermore, the iPhone 16 beta’s wallpaper also indicates the series will feature Always-On displays.
Additionally, Steve Mosser revealed some images of how the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro might look with Always-On displays.
A preview of the rumored iPhone 14 Pro ‘Always on Display’ feature might have been leaked by Xcode 14 beta 4 Simulator. Attached are the first two frames of a video of waking the sim.

Faster processor and memory
Several sources have indicated that Apple will offer 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. As Apple upgrades its A series processors every year, this is pretty much a given.
As a result, performance, thermals, etc., are likely to improve. According to reports, the A16 chipset may only be available on the Pro variants, whereas the regular iPhone 14, 14 Max will have the A15 chipset starting in 2021.
New colour options
Also, Jioriku indicated that Purple, Silver, Green, Gold, and Graphite colors will be available for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. For the Pro series, Apple appears to be dropping Sierra Blue in favor of Purple.
Unless you count the notch on the front display, Apple will not drastically change the design of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. We get a glimpse of what the Pro version could look like thanks to CGTrader’s leak. In addition to the existing colour options, we may see new colors for the Pro series.
It appears that the camera island will be larger than last year. Apple will use a 48MP camera sensor this time, according to Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo. He had previously predicted that 8K recording would be supported as well.
According to Kuo’s tweet, the 48MP camera sensor will also take up more space this time as a result. As for the ultra-wide, it remains to be seen whether it too will be upgraded to 48MP.
