Apple will finally eliminate the oft-criticized display notch from its entire iPhone lineup next year, replacing it with ‘Dynamic Island’ on all iPhone 15 models – reports 9to5Mac.
The information comes from Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants, a well-known backer and industry insider.
This year, Apple ditched the front-facing camera and Face ID notch on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Instead, Apple packed everything into a new pill-shaped cutout that, in typical Apple fashion, the company turned into an interactive software feature and dubbed Dynamic Island.
Yes, Dynamic Island expected on standard models on 15. Still not expecting 120Hz/LTPO on standard models as supply chain cannot support it.

Young expects Apple to roll out the change to its entire iPhone lineup next year. Provided Apple doesn’t decide to shake up next year’s non-Pro iPhone lineup (like it did this year by scrapping the mini model), that would mean the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 More basics will include the Dynamic Island alongside the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
However, Young went on to note that Apple doesn’t have a sufficient supply of 120Hz LTPO OLED panels for the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus.
That being the case, the two cheaper iPhones next year will likely lack ProMotion and the new Always-On display feature. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will inherit both features from their predecessors.
Next year’s iPhone 15 series has also been designed to get a periscope camera with 5x optical zoom.
Apple launched the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in Canada and beyond on Friday. Click here to order yours today.
