According to a variety of reports, the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will drop the notch to make way for a new “pill+hole punch” cutout design. 9to5Mac reported in March that the iPhone 14’s display will be slightly taller. Ross Young, a display analyst, has now shared the specifications of the new screen sizes.
Young claims that the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have slightly larger screens due to the removal of a notch. Although the screen size difference is noticeable, it doesn’t make the difference as dramatic as one might hope.
Below is a breakdown of the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max screen sizes, and how they compare with their iPhone 13 predecessors.
- · iPhone 13 Pro – 6.06”
- · iPhone 14 Pro – 6.12”
- · iPhone 13 Pro Max – 6.68”
- · iPhone 14 Pro Max – 6.69”
These changes are unlikely to be significant enough to warrant that Apple doesn’t make any modifications to its iOS interface to take advantage of the larger displays. Many people had hoped that Apple would increase the screen size to allow it to add the battery percentage back into the status bar. However, this seems unlikely.
iPhone 14 Series Display Size
Apple advertises its screen sizes as 6.1-inches and 6.67-inches. It’s unlikely that Apple will change that marketing for the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple could use clever “percentage increases” math to highlight changes.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will have the same screen sizes, as the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The lower-tier iPhone 14 models won’t lose the notch design. Only the Pro will have the “pill + punch” cutout design.
Young predicts that Apple will also bring the “pill + punch” design to iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Max.
The iPhone 14 lineup will likely be released in September, barring any supply chain problems. Four models are expected, two with a 6.7-inch display and two with a 6.1-inch display.
