Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models will have slightly larger screen sizes compared to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to information shared by display industry consultant Ross Young.
Measured as a standard rectangular shape, Young said the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 6.12-inch screen compared to a 6.06-inch screen on the iPhone 13 Pro. Similarly, Young said the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 6.69-inch screen, which would be marginally larger than the 6.68-inch screen on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Young said the slightly larger screen sizes are due to narrower frames around the screen and a new pill-and-hole design that replaces the notch. The pill-shaped cutout is expected to accommodate Face ID sensors where the hole is for the front camera.
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 that replaces notched and narrower frames. – Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) May 10, 2022
Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, holds a respectable track record for display-related information about future Apple products. He revealed exactly that the sixth generation iPad mini would have an 8.3-inch screen, and that the latest 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models would have ProMotion.
