Here’s how the new pill + hole punch notch is going to look on the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro

Over the last couple of months, almost all leakers and analysts have repeatedly said that the iPhone 14 Pro will feature a new design, but the rear end of the device will remain unchanged. The cutouts will house the Face ID sensors and selfie camera.

Twitter user @DanRui took to Twitter to share images from the Chinese social media site Weibo. The images give us the first real-world look at the new pill and hole-punch notch expected to be coming to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

In addition to this, reputable leaked ShrimpApplePro shared a screenshot claiming to be from the iPhone 14 Pro Max compared with the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s status bar. This is the first time we are hearing about the repositioning of the status bar. As we can see from the images, the status bar will be slightly lower and shifted to the right side.

This year’s standard models, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are not going to feature significant upgrades. It has been reported multiple times that they will feature the same design and A15 chip as the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to be announced chock-full of updates.

The Pro models are set to feature the updated A16 Bionic chip, a 48MP rear-end camera that will enable 8K video recording, and an upgraded front camera with auto-focus.

All models are expected to feature 6GB of RAM.and support 30W charging. As for the internal storage of the device, there are some conflicting reports about whether it will start from 128GB or 256GB, given a rumored price hike.
