The iPhone 14 series may feature an unusual front design.
Earlier this year, rumors started swirling that Apple would finally adopt the pinhole design popularized by Samsung in 2022. For the iPhone 13, Apple has shrunk the notch by 20 percent but it has grown in height, and teardowns show this was largely achieved by shifting the speaker to the top bezel.
The Face ID system still occupies a sizeable amount of space. Earlier leaks had hinted that Apple was looking to move the system beneath the display, similar to what Samsung and a couple of other companies have done with the front camera, but a new report suggests that might not happen.
