At a few points during the 35-minute episode, the iPhone appears on the screen with rounded corners and no notch. It is also seen to have the same interface with the default lockscreen that Apple offered on iOS 14.
Apple TV+ viewers spotted the notchless iPhone in episode six of the second season of Ted Lasso, which is titled “The Signal.” Some viewers have taken to Twitter to share the screenshots showing the all-new iPhone with the notchless design. This is speculated to be the iPhone 13 by a few spectators.
iPhone 13 Series Launch Tipped to Take Place on September 14
So far, Apple has not used any entertainment shows to divulge its upcoming hardware. The company may, however, promote its flagship products through the main characters of popular series including Ted Lasso that earned 20 Emmy nominations in July.
If we look at the recent reports, the iPhone 13 lineup will come with a smaller notch design and not a complete notchless experience. Apple may have plans to go for the latter in the future.
Apple is also known for maintaining the secrecy of its new products by not revealing any of their key features — unlike competitors including Google and Samsung. Therefore, it is likely that the notchless design might just be due to some editing errors. It is also important to mention that Ted Lasso is one of the titles on Apple TV+ that uses computer-generated imagery (CGI) to a large extent. So, chances are high that the notchless design may just be due to some CGI inputs.

That said, the iPhone 13 launch is speculated to take place later this month — as early as September 14. We may, thus, have to wait for a few more days to get a clear picture of what Apple has for its iPhone consumers in 2021.
