According to a recent report from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities, the 2022 iPhone Pro models might finally ditch the notch in favour of a hole-punch cutout in its display. He also hints at an upcoming iPhone SE with 5G.
There are already rumours that claim that this year's iPhones will feature a smaller notch, while the Pro models might also come with a 120Hz Display with Always-On functionality. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is expecting that the next year's iPhone Pro models will finally ditch the notch, which has been present in iPhones since the introduction of the iPhone X in 2017.
He also talks about the upcoming 2022 iPhone SE, which will feature an updated chipset (probably from this year's iPhones) along with 5G support. However, it will still carry forward the same design as the 2020 iPhone SE, featuring a 4.7-inch LCD display.
In another report, the reliable analyst also shares that Apple might not be switching to USB-C for the iPhone, and instead, it aims to completely remove the lightning port in the near future, relying on the new MagSafe technology that it debuted with the iPhone 12 models. He also predicts that Apple might not introduce a TouchID sensor for the newer iPhones.
