The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are rumored to have a square camera bump on the back measuring 1.44 inches by 1.5 inches (36.73 mm by 38.21 mm), according to leaked specifications.
Apple can finally get rid of the notch in the iPhone 14
Since its introduction in the iPhone X in 2017, the “notch” has been one of the most hated features of Apple smartphones.
The ugly black bar has the front cameras, but it does erode into the screen, and it especially gets in the way while watching movies or playing games.
Now, a new leak suggests that Apple may finally be ditching the notch in favor of two sections at the top of the screen.
While Apple has yet to confirm or deny the news, a leaked diagram posted on Chinese social media site Weibo shows what the new feature could look like.
The schematic was spotted by 9to5Macand appears to show two clips that will replace the notch.

iDropNews cites its ‘own sources’ and claims that Apple has ‘something planned’ for September 13th.
iDropNews wrote: “From my understanding, Apple has something planned internally for ‘Week 37’.
The Cupertino-based company usually holds all of its events on Tuesdays.
“It means that something will happen on September 13, 2022. Of course, I cannot guarantee that this will be the event, but it certainly looks like it.”
While Apple previously held most of its iPhone launches at its Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, it has had to host them online amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to iDropNews, it is still unclear if Apple will host this year’s event online or in person.
“According to my sources, this has not yet been decided,” she added.
Apple doesn’t want to make a hasty decision and then have to back off because COVID cases are on the rise, so the company will decide the earliest possible date from the event to the course it will take.
At the event, Apple is likely to launch four new iPhones, according to iDropNews – iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The report states that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be “disappointing” and “identical to the iPhone 13”, priced at $799 and $899, respectively.
However, the iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max have been described as a “real game changer”.
Aside from the new iPhones, the report claims that a host of other new gadgets could be unveiled at the event, including AirPods Pro 2
“The camera system will be greatly improved thanks to a new 48-megapixel sensor,” says iDropNews.
The notch will be replaced by a pill system and a hole, and I heard the screen would be brighter too.
This device will have an A16 chip, although it may be called “A16 Pro”.
Somewhat surprisingly, the new features will come with a hefty price tag.
The report adds: “Apple plans to raise the price of the iPhone 14 Pro to $ 1,099, while the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max will start from $ 1,199.”
Apart from the new iPhones, the report claims that a host of other new gadgets could be revealed at the event.
This includes AirPods Pro 2, Apple Watch 8, SE, ‘Extreme Edition’, and possibly even newer Macs.
“This is going to be a very interesting event, no doubt about it, and I can’t wait to see all the things that Apple engineers have been working on,” concluded iDropNews.
iPhone 15 could come with a new charging cable
In 2012, Apple caused mass hysteria among iPhone owners by switching the original 30-pin charging port to the current Lightning port.
Now, a trusted leaker claims that Apple may be preparing to change the charging point for a second time.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will finally drop the Lightning port for USB-C in its iPhone 2023, rumored to be called the iPhone 15.
The leak comes shortly after the European Union revealed plans to force all new smartphones – including iPhones – to use USB-C as a standard.
Apple has previously opposed calls for a switch to USB-C, amid allegations that it would produce an “unprecedented volume of electronic waste” and stifle innovation.
