Apple recently revealed its iPhone 13 series, with the four new iPhones going on sale this week, but speculation about future Apple phones has already started making the rounds online.
A new online report indicates that Apple plans to abandon the “notch” or the notch at the top of the screen on high-end models of the iPhone, and according to trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple plans to remove the notch completely from the iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max models for the year next.
Kuo suggests that the company will work with the punch-hole display and is expected to have 48MP wide cameras on the back. The report also adds that iPhone users shouldn’t expect a fingerprint under the screen, as the feature is being delayed until next year.
As reported by 9to5Mac, Kuo wrote in a note, “We have revised our expectations to delay the launch of the iPhone with an under-screen fingerprint and the foldable iPhone to 2H23 and 2024, respectively, due to lower-than-expected development progress, and we believe this will hurt iPhone shipments in 2022 and 2023. “.
Kuo also revealed that Apple fans will have to wait longer to get a foldable iPhone, and adds that the foldable iPhone has been delayed until 2024, and also mentions that the lack of an in-screen fingerprint and the delay of the foldable iPhone will hurt Apple shipments in 2022 and 2023.
Earlier this year, Kuo expected Apple to ship 20 million units of its first foldable smartphone in 2023, but according to the latest note, the smartphone has now been delayed until 2024.
