What the latest Weibo post means is that while Apple will introduce a hole-punch design, it could be hard for the company to abandon the notch altogether. @PandaIsBald has an accurate track record with some leaks. The account predicted correctly that the ninth-generation iPad would be announced at the September event. The latest leak means that iPhone 14 may continue to feature a notch. Notably, with the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, the Cupertino giant did cut down the notch size in width but is slightly taller. It had to shrink the component sizes of the TrueDepth camera system and re-engineer the internals. It moved the earpiece to the top of the bezels, thereby freeing up the space.
This latest leak does make sense since analyst Ming-Chi Kuo did not mention how Apple will house Face ID on the high-end iPhone 14 Pro models. In addition to the punch-hole design, the leak claims the in-display Touch ID sensor will not be present in 2022, which goes on to suggest that Face ID will continue even on the iPhone 14 series.
