Apple may go old-school with the iPhone 12S
iPhone 13— Mauri QHD (@MauriQHD) January 28, 2021
there´s a prototype with no notch at all,
but -a bit- bigger bezels,
meaning the 4 sides are equally bigger
or maybe iPhone 14? pic.twitter.com/xGROzS6BME
The iPhone 12S (13) isn't expected until September, so Apple might not have locked in the design yet. Still, it's improbable that the new phones will revert to an all bezel design. 2017's iPhone 8 was Apple's last flagship phone with such a design. The 2020 iPhone SE doesn't exactly have modern aesthetics, but it's a budget phone.
Could the iPhone 12S prototype be pointing to something else?
Most reports also suggest that the next iPhones will feature under-display Touch ID. Face ID is not going anywhere as it is also considered useful for augmented reality and photography.
