Rumors say the iPhone 14 Pro's dual cutout will act as a display and show a privacy indicator

Apple will announce its 2022 iPhone lineup next week, and rumors have been swirling ahead of the announcement. One rumor surrounding the redesigned “notch” in the display is that the two cutouts will use the unlit pixels of the display as one. The software will control when the pixels between the cutouts are illuminated or just turned off.

This is according to an anonymous source reported by MacRumors which matches rumours circulating on Chinese social media. Rumors stem from Foxconn employees’ involvement in the production of the iPhone 14 Pro.

Rumor claims Apple’s dual-cutout notch will appear as one

A corroborating report from 9to5Mac was released shortly after this, claiming that the area between these cuts would also be Reserved for displaying Apple’s Privacy Indicator, which ships with iOS 14. It shows when the microphone or camera is actively being used by an application on the device. This frees up the corners of the display to accommodate more status icons.

According to 9to5Mac sources, the camera app is also expected to have an updated layout that moves some controls to the top of the screen. Specifically, the flash and live photo buttons will be right above the status bar, while the other settings are right below the cutout.

This extended cutout may later display such pixels just like watching a video or receiving a notification. It would be a less distracting solution than bangs for viewing content, and still have the hardware required for Apple’s Face ID biometric solution.

Rumors should not be taken as fact, this will be confirmed in the next week during the Apple Live event. Apple will release four new iPhones, including two 6.1-inch iPhones and two larger 6.7-inch iPhones. There won’t be a “mini” iPhone this year.
