The iPhone 14 Pro screen on Apple's official website was changed to a long pill on the Smart Island

 At the "Far Out" conference, Apple released the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, retaining most of the iPhone 13's design - including mobile phone selfie cameras and Face Notch notch for the ID sensor. Apple also introduced the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with a "smart island" pill screen to show alerts and background activity, brighter displays and AOD always-on display, an A16 bionic chip, new color options, and more.

At the press conference, Apple specially introduced the "Smart Island" design of the iPhone 14 Pro, which looks like a long or variable-shaped pill. Some netizens even think that the hardware is equipped with pills to dig holes, and there is no screen in the middle. However, it is not.

Previously, pictures on Apple's official website appeared, and the iPhone 14 Pro / Pro Max is indeed equipped with an "exclamation mark" hole-digging screen. That is the "Pill + Single Punch" screen. IT House learned that, with the software adaptation of iOS 16, the "Smart Island" design further dilutes the "exclamation mark" digging holes. In terms of display, the middle screen is always in a black state, etc.

But now some netizens have discovered that Apple has quietly changed it to a "long pill", which is the same product form as the Apple Store online store.

Apple says Smart Island brings users a whole new way to interact with the iPhone, blurring the lines between hardware and software, with real-time changes showing important reminders, notifications, and events. With the introduction of Smart Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to reduce the display space it takes up. On the premise of not affecting the display of the screen content, the smart island remains active, allowing users to use the control options with just a long press. 

Activities that keep running in the background like maps, music apps or timers are always visible and interactive. In addition, Smart Island works with third-party apps in iOS 16 that provide information (such as game scores and carpool information) through Live Activity. Blurring the line between hardware and software, Smart Island flexibly unfolds into various shapes to clearly visualize important operations such as Face ID verification.
