We’re still months away from the iPhone 14 launch, but the iPhone 14 Pro’s new screen design appears to have been confirmed by artwork in a leaked Apple Pay ad.
The video, uploaded to YouTube by the Apple Archive Thai channel, is only 15 seconds long and demonstrates the basic process of using Apple Pay in a store. But the stylized image of the handset clearly has a few smaller screen openings instead of the notch, echoing the hole + pill configuration widely expected on the iPhone 14 Pro in September. Leakers have suggested that the Face ID sensors will sit in the more elongated window pane on the left, while the front camera will occupy the hole on the right, and the video suggests Apple will use it as an identifying feature, such as the notch. .
It’s hard to say for sure whether the video is legit, especially since Apple Archive Thai is a little-known channel with relatively few subscribers and not much track record to speak of. But it’s for sure looks like legit, and if fake, the fakes have done a great job capturing Apple’s visual and musical aesthetic.
It also makes sense that the video exists. The company wants a full portfolio of marketing materials ready to go once the 14 Pro is unveiled, to familiarize customers with the new design, and updating everything to show the 14 Pro instead of the 13 Pro is a huge job. With less than four months to launch, Apple Park will have plenty of completed or near-complete videos circulating, and we know the company hasn’t fully resolved its leaky problem.
