Meanwhile, several mock-ups show the iPhone 14 series without a notch on the front panel. It appears the company is exploring the idea of a pill-shaped cutout for the selfie cameras and Face ID. Apple iPhones have seen hole-punch cutouts in the past that changed post-iPhone X. The company’s ‘affordable’ iPhone SE 2020 still comes with a touch ID, thick bezels, and hole-punch cutout.
