We’re still several months away from iPhone 14 launches, but the iPhone 14 Pro’s new screen design appears to have been confirmed by illustrations in a leaked Apple Pay ad.
The video, uploaded to YouTube by the Apple Archive Thai channel, is just 15 seconds long and demonstrates the basic process of using Apple Pay in a store. But the slimmer look of the phone clearly has a couple of smaller screen openings in place of the notch, following the hole-punch + lozenge setup expected to appear on the iPhone 14 Pro in September. Leakers have suggested that the Face ID sensors will be placed in the longer diamond on the left, while the front camera will occupy the hole on the right, and the video suggests that Apple will use it as an identification feature like the notch.
It’s hard to say for sure if the video is legit, especially since Apple Archive Thai is a little-known channel with relatively few subscribers and not much history to speak of. but certainly appearance legit, and if it’s fake, counterfeiters have done an excellent job of capturing Apple’s visual and musical aesthetic.
It also makes sense that the video exists. The company will want a full portfolio of marketing materials out of the box by the time the 14 Pro is revealed, to familiarize customers with the new design, and updating everything to show the 14 Pro instead of the 13 Pro is work. enormous. With less than four months to go until launch, many finished or near-finished videos like this one will be in circulation at Apple Park, and we know the company hasn’t fully resolved its leak issue.
