Leak states iPhone 14 models might flaunt a larger screen

iPhone 14

A recent leak by Ross Young, a display analyst, reveals the display size of the upcoming iPhone 14 lineup in a tweet. Previously, reports stated the lineup would feature a “pill+hole punch” cutout design rather than the notch on the front screen. Additionally, the new design will have Face ID sensors, with the hole being the selfie camera. Consequently, the pill-shaped cutout meant a larger screen display for the iPhone 14 models. And now it is almost as good as officially confirmed.

In the leak, Young says that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have slightly larger screens than its predecessor. She said narrower bezels around the display and the pin-and-hole design replacing the notch are likely the reason. However, the size increase of the display screen isn’t that significant. For instance, the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 6.12-inch display instead of the iPhone 13 Pro’s 6.06-inch. And the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 6.69-inch display instead of the 13 Pro Max’s 6.68-inch. Thus, it is just a 0.06-inch and 0.01-inch increase, respectively, in both the models.

Furthermore, these changes are so minute that Apple will likely not upgrade its iOS interface for larger displays. So, unfortunately, customers’ hope that a larger screen might include the battery percentage in the status bar will not come true. Most importantly, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will have the same display size as their predecessors. The reason is that the lower-tier iPhone 14 models will retain the notch design. Hence, the “pill + hole punch” cutout design will be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models.

Conclusion

Young predicted that Apple would include this design in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Max as well. Additionally, the iPhone 14 lineup will likely launch in September if no supply chain issues are encountered. The lineup will probably include four different models – two with a 6.7-inch display and two with a 6.1-inch display.
