Update: A couple of new sources have corroborated the rumor about the software touch-ups for the iPhone 14 Pro’s dual cutouts that will make them look like one long pill when the display is on.
Users will apparently also be able to tap on these indicators to see a list of apps accessing the microphone and the camera.
The original story continues below.
Not that I have great intuition, but I knew something was up when a leak from yesterday implied that the iPhone 14 Pro will boast one big pill-shaped cutout instead of two cutouts and around the same time, leaker ShrimpApplePro brought to light a 2021 tweet about the possibility that Apple may opt for one big cutout.
This makes you wonder why Apple went for two cutouts in the first place. Anyhow, the report also claims that Apple may also visually expand the blacked-out bits around the cutouts when the display is on, presumably to better accommodate content. For instance, Apple might make that part slightly wider to fit the icons on the left and right sides.
