New tweets shared by leaker @dylandkt, who has in the past been accurate in posting information about Apple-related products over the past year or so, claim iPhone 14 Pro models will feature a notch-less display with a pill-shaped camera cutout at the top of the display. The leaker said Face ID hardware will be moved under the display.
We have previously seen rumors from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman that iPhone 14 Pro models will be notch-less. However, this is the first time a pill-shaped camera cutout on the front display has been mentioned. Previous rumors indicated the cutout would be circular.
Reliable rumors source and display industry consultant Ross Young previously mentioned that Face ID will move under the display. Young was correct when last year he claimed that the new iPad mini would feature an 8.3-inch display with no Home button on the front of the device.
@dylandkt tweets that he has been told that Face ID’s reliability will not be negatively affected by the under-display change.
I am able to corroborate information regarding a hole punch camera for the pro models of the iPhone 14. Face ID hardware will be placed under the display. As a reassurance to any concerns, the functionality of these sensors have not been negatively affected by this change.

Are you aware of the shape? Pill or simply hole for front camera
