iPhone 14 to see ‘complete redesign’ and lose one very controversial feature

Apple's next iPhone could be set for a major redesign which would see one of the smartphone's most infamous features dropped.

The iPhone 14, which is widely tipped for a September launch, could lose the camera 'notch' found at the top of the screen.

In its place, a 'pill + hole' design is rumoured to be in the works, with a small black hole for the camera replacing the large screen notch.

That's according to apparent leaks earlier this year on the Chinese social media site Weibo, which were independently verified by several different Apple insiders.

Various designers have been creating digital mock-ups of the hypothetical new designs, which suggests a notchless iPhone could be much sleeker⁠—and look a lot more like a Samsung.

One Apple rumour account, LeaksApplePro, said on Twitter: "A source has had hands-on time with iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max […]

"The new pill+hole doesn't add anything new. It looks different, but it pretty much works like the notch. Once you get used to it it's 'gone'."

They added that the "pill+hole looks weird. It's there to differentiate new iPhones from old iPhones, but as I told you it doesn't add anything new. You forget it's there once you use the iPhone for a few minutes."

It's unclear whether the regular iPhone 14 model will receive the changes, or if it will only be for the Pro and Pro Max models.

Apple is widely tipped to be planning a launch event for the new iPhone 14 range in mid-September alongside the release of new Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac products.

According to rumours, Apple might ditch the unpopular iPhone Mini but release a range of new Pro, Pro Max, and standard iPhone 14 models this Autumn.
