Live images of upcoming iPhones' screen protectors reveal a much smaller notch
Apple has been using the same notch design on iPhones since the release of the iPhone X. While many Android phones have switched to something more appealing like a punch-hole cutout, Apple might have realized that it's time to make changes as well. Instead of the design, this year's iPhones are said to come with a smaller notch compared to their predecessors. Today, some live images of the screen protectors for the upcoming iPhones have revealed how the new notch could look like.
According to the images shared by a Twitter user DuanRui, the screen protectors are showing off a notch that is much smaller than the current one on the iPhone 12 series models. The source mentions that those two screen protectors belong to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.

It is said that Apple has moved the earpiece upwards and into the top screen bezel, leaving the Infrared and camera components in the notch. Therefore, the next-gen iPhones' notch is able to become about 30% smaller. However, it looks like this could also be the last year that the iPhones will come with a notch as it was reported that the iPhone 14 series will feature the under-display camera technology.
