All four iPhone 15 models slated for release next year will feature a pill-and-hole display design that replaces the notch, according to display industry consultant Ross Young, who has a track record. respectable with display-related information.


In a tweet, Young shared a roadmap indicating that the standard and Pro models of the iPhone 15 will feature the pill and hole layout, which refers to a pill-shaped cutout for the Face ID sensors and to a hole for the front camera. By comparison, only the iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to switch to the pill-and-hole design this year, with the standard iPhone 14 models expected to retain the same notch as the iPhone 13 models.

Young thinks Apple’s end goal is to move the Face ID sensors and front-facing camera completely below the display. If development is successful, it expects this transition to begin with under-display Face ID on iPhone 16 Pro models in 2024, followed by under-display Face ID and an under-display front camera on iPhone 16 Pro models. 18 Pro in 2026.

Young said the pill-and-hole design will result in iPhone 14 Pro models having slightly larger screen sizes than iPhone 13 Pro models.

Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 14 lineup in September barring any major supply chain disruptions. For the Pro models, an upgraded 48-megapixel rear camera should enable 8K video recording, up from 4K currently.

Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, has accurately revealed in the past that the sixth-generation iPad mini will feature an 8.3-inch display, and the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will feature ProMotion.
