Will the 💊 replace the notch?

Cult of Mac Today
The notch will be replaced by a pill, according to the latest iPhone 14 rumors, which form the basis for some new mockups.
The renders show the iPhone 13’s notch being replaced by a pill-shaped cutout for the front-facing camera and other Face ID hardware.
It looks pretty nifty to me, but I wonder if Apple loses something by ditching the notch.
It’s not as bad IRL as critics alleged, and it’s become iconic. See a notch, you know it’s an iPhone. (And perhaps this is partly the reason there’s a notch on newer MacBooks – it’s become part of the Apple design language.)
Either way, I’m looking forward to battery percentages again.
In other news:
  • Cell carriers are starting to block Apple’s new Private Relay service, which is puzzling because it operates like a good old VPN. Why now?
  • Apple’s upcoming AR/VR headset will be more AR than VR.
  • What’s Apple’s best feature in years? Autofilling 2F authentication codes in Messages, or sending Wi-Fi passwords to contacts? See the tweets below.

One more thing ...
“I don’t store anything anymore, really. I use a lot of e-mail and the Web, and with both of those I don’t have to ever manage storage. As a matter of fact, my favorite way of reminding myself to do something is to send myself e-mail. That’s my storage.” – Steve Jobs
