We are one week away from the next Apple keynote, in which we will surely discover the new generation of the iPhone and Apple Watch. Despite the proximity of the event, rumors are still emerging around the devices. The last of them, however, a key change in the most important novelty of the iPhone 14 Pro at an aesthetic level. We refer to the perforation on the screen.
For the first time, Apple will bet on a perforated screen to give space to the front sensors of the iPhone 14 Pro, which will allow you to get rid of the always controversial notch. Of course, unlike other manufacturers, those from Cupertino will integrate two holes instead of one —for the front lens and the TrueDepth cameras that bring Face ID to life—, leaving a small dead space between them.
The mentioned rumour, shared by a leaker a MacRumorsmentions that when the iPhone 14 Pro is on, a single pill-like hole will be visible. That is, the terminal would turn off the pixels located between the two holes so that it looks symmetrical. This would not be complicated at all because Apple terminals have an OLED panel, so they can manipulate the lighting of each pixel individually. In the image below you can see it in detail:
The information, of course, completely changes our conception of the iPhone 14 Pro in relation to its screen. All of the leaks, and fan-made renders of them, featured a terminal with two visible punch-holes. In fact, from the beginning it has been criticized because, due to the different dimensions of each hole, the front does not look symmetrical.
Of course, it is best to take the report in stride and wait for the Apple event. The truth is that the avalanche of rumors is not going to stop even hours before Tim Cook takes the stage.
The rumor spread by MacRumors remember the one from notch of the most recent generation of the MacBook Pro. Days before its official presentation, a leaker He anticipated that the laptop would have a huge bulge at the top to house the webcam. Not many believed him, but in the end his information, to the chagrin of consumers, turned out to be correct.
Apple plans to present the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro next Wednesday, September 7. Beyond the announcements, the event marks the return of in-person events at the Steve Jobs Theater. Of course, hypertextual will be there to bring you all the news. The keynote will take place at 19:00 in Spain and 12:00 in Mexico.
