The new "iPhone 14 Pro" and "iPhone 14 Pro Max" displays will be larger by hundredths of a millimeter according to a supply chain analyst.

Leaks have shown that the "iPhone 14 Pro" models will feature a pill and hole cutout with slimmer bezels around the display. These changes will provide slight increases to the overall display area available.

Display supply chain analyst Ross Young has shared the exact measurements for these new models. He attributes the increase in size to the bezels and the cutout, although the cutout shouldn't affect display size, just effective display area.

According to his tweet, the "iPhone 14 Pro" would have a 6.12-inch diagonal versus the iPhone 13 Pro 6.06-inch diagonal. The "iPhone 14 Pro Max" has an even smaller change to 6.69 inches from 6.68 inches.

iPhone 13 Pro - 6.06"
iPhone 14 Pro - 6.12"
iPhone 13 Pro Max - 6.68"
iPhone 14 Pro Max - 6.69"

Differences due to pill + hole replacing the notch and narrower bezels.

It is unlikely that this display diagonal increase will be perceptible to users. The "iPhone 14" lineup is expected to be announced during an Apple event in September.

    Bad copy editing once again: it's hundredths of an INCH, not hundredths of a millimeter.

    0.06 inches is actually somewhat noticeable; that's basically 1/16".

    TSMC is raising prices again. Will Apple raise prices on new iPhone 14?

    Why not keep the damn notch, skip the pill and pinhole and go straight to neither in (hopefully) 2023.

    So just never evolve?  Weird advice.

    It would be nice if I got more than a year from my cases; we'll see I suppose.

    He said, skip the I hole punch pill cut out and hopefully in 2023 just go to the hole punch camera look.

    I think the mini is missing from this story. That is sad.

    Changing from a notch to a "pill and hole" configuration doesn't seem much like an "evolution" to me.  It's just a change.  And a silly one if done just for the sake of change alone.  If Apple were to do such, and I'm still somewhat skeptical that they'll bother, I'd expect there'd be an actual reason for it that somehow makes the phone better.

    Because either way people are going to bitch. This way, at least the pillhole approach gives the appearance of progress, however minimal it may be.

    It is change for the sake of change. I can’t really see how it will make the iPhone any better. It will just temporarily appease those who vocally complain about the notch, and it will look just different enough to give those people who care about such things a reason to brag about having the newest model.
