Apple’s upcoming iPhone X sequel may have new design with a smaller notch
As it turns out, the notch on the iPhone X proved to be far less of a divisive issue than initially anticipated. Though many people were quick to call the notch an unseemly distraction when Apple originally unveiled the device this past September, the reality is that the notch is far more conspicuous and irksome in pictures than it is in your hands. In short, the controversy over the iPhone X notch quickly evaporated once the device actually started shipping.
That said, Apple is reportedly interested in making the notch even smaller on future iterations of the iPhone. According to a new investor note from analysts at Barclays (originally obtained via MacRumors), the TrueDepth camera system that powers Face ID will reportedly be smaller on upcoming iPhone models. Consequently, the notch itself will occupy a smaller footprint on the front of the device.
