iPhone’s big annual event is and we’ll soon find out exactly what the company has up its sleeve. In the meantime, the rumor continues to spin. The latest word on the street is the dual-punch cutouts that the iPhone 14 Pro has.

According and (with confirmation of

), Apple will fill the space between the cutouts with a blacked-out area of ​​the screen, making it appear as a single “wide pill-shaped cutout.” What Apple apparently plans to do with this section of the screen is also interesting.

Reports suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro will move the camera and microphone privacy indicators to this space. Instead of showing a small orange dot in the upper right corner when the microphone is in use and a green dot when the camera is active, these indicators will apparently have more prominence between cutouts.

By 9to5Mac, Apple’s thinking is to make the indicators more like those of the MacBook, which shows a green indicator whenever an app uses the camera. On top of that, the iPhone 14 Pro could display privacy indicators for the camera and microphone simultaneously — on current models, if both are in use, only a green dot is displayed. Additionally, it looks like you’ll be able to tap the privacy indicators to see which apps are using the mic and camera.

Meanwhile, Apple could redesign the Camera app to position more controls at the top of the screen, namely the flash and Live Photo buttons. More photo and video settings may appear below the punch cutouts. These changes are not set in stone, according to 9to5Macwhich can be a good thing, because people might not want to cover most of the screen with their hand while adjusting photo and video settings.
