The current abandons is just an excessive solution for Apple, but this duration is really too long. Judging from the current exposure, starting from the iPhone 14, the shape will change.
According to the latest news from the supply chain, the iPhone 14 will use the punch-hole + pill design, but not the whole series, and starting from the iPhone 15, the entire four series will be fully switched to the punch-hole design (completely bid farewell to the notch) to further improve The screen-to-body ratio of the phone.
In addition, the news also mentioned that this year’s iPhone 14 high-end series (14 Pro/14 Pro Max models) is expected to use a titanium alloy body to further improve durability.
Supply chain sources also revealed that Apple may have given up on the under-screen Touch ID fingerprint sensor solution in favor of a more advanced Face ID sensor, but it will not appear on the iPhone 14 series, but on its next-generation iPhone 15. .
For Apple, the above measures help to significantly reduce the cost of manufacturing a single device. But for the vast majority of consumers, it also means they won’t be able to use their fingerprints to unlock.
