Apple leaked the ad confirms the seemingly big iPhone 14 Pro design change
We’re still months away from launching the iPhone 14, but the new screen design for the iPhone 14 Pro seems to have been confirmed by artwork in a leaked Apple Pay ad.
The video, uploaded to YouTube via the Apple Archive Thai channel, lasts only 15 seconds and demonstrates the basic process of using Apple Pay in a store. But the handset’s stylized image clearly has a pair of small screen apertures in place of the grooves, following the hole + pill configuration is expected to feature the iPhone 14 Pro in September. The leakers suggest that the Face ID sensors sit in a more expansive lodge on the left, while the front camera occupies the pinhole on the right, and the video suggests that Apple will use it as a notch-like identification feature.
It’s hard to say for sure whether the video is legitimate, especially since Apple Archive Thai is a little-known channel with relatively few subscribers and not much track record to speak of. But of course it is Shows Legitimate, and if it’s a fake, the fraudsters have done a great job of capturing Apple’s visual and musical aesthetics.
It also implies the existence of the video. The company will want a complete portfolio of marketing materials ready to go in the second half of the 14 Pro release, so that customers can get acquainted with the new design and update everything to show the 14 Pro instead of the 13 Pro. Less than four months after the launch, lots of such finished or almost finished videos will be aired on Apple Park, and we know the company has not been able to completely fix its leak problem.
