IPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are the biggest changes in Apple's lineup in years, from the sheer number of models and new designs to 5G connectivity and the powerful new A14 Bionic processor. You can also expect a major camera upgrade and possibly a 120 Hz display for Pro models.
Although the iPhone 12 launch may be late, despite some controversy over the delay, rumors and leaks painted a fairly complete picture of what to expect from new Apple phones, including the release date and price and specifications.
The iPhone 12 is expected to come in four models: iPhone 12 measuring 5.4 inches; 6.1 inch iPhone 12 Max; 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro; And 6.7 inches iPhone 12 Pro Max. All new iPhones 12 must-have OLED screens and 5G connectivity, but iPhone 12 Pro series will boost with 120Hz refresh rate and three back cameras plus LiDAR sensor.
We were also able to see a new design for Apple phones, a design that remembers the flat edges of the iPhone 5 and a more square look. There must also be a smaller degree.
Although the new iPhones were released publicly in September, various reports indicate that the iPhone 12 will be delayed.
Most Apple watchers circled nearly October in their calendar after the Wall Street Journal reported that mass production was delayed for a month. This postponed the iPhone 12 launch event until October, which will be the first time since 2011 that the event did not take place in early September. Apple Broadcom salesman said one of its customers is facing a "significant product delay" - it is widely assumed that the company was referring to Apple and iPhone 12. One report claims we may not see the iPhone 12 until November.
The most optimistic report comes from Wedbush, as analyst Daniel Ives says the iPhone 12 will appear in late September, with the phone shipping in early October. This will be a few weeks after normal Apple hours.
Even if the iPhone 12 arrives in September, the most premium model might get delayed. According to the supply chain report from April 2020, the standard iPhone 12 series will enter mass production in September, while the popular iPhone 12 Pro Max will do the same in October.
Now we know more about the mobile operating system that will run iPhone 12 models. Apple has seen a preview of iOS 14 at its annual developer conference, introducing new features like the redesigned home screen, map updates, and messages. Among other things. The developers now have a beta of iOS 14, and the public beta will arrive in July.
iPhone 12 models
From analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predictions last year, we know that four different iPhone 12 models are available for 2020: one 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inch, and the largest variant measuring 6.7-inch. Kuo says all four iPhones for 2020 will have 5G.
These four phones are also expected to feature OLED displays, which will be a change for Apple. Like the previous iPhone XR, the iPhone 11 features an LCD screen instead of the OLED panel.
iPhone 12: Look for the novice iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2340x1080. Young expects the screen to feature Y-OCTA technology, which means that the touch sensor is directly integrated into the screen.
In terms of other devices, the iPhone 12 is expected to feature an A14 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a choice of 128 GB and 256 GB of storage. Like the iPhone 11, this model will rely on dual rear cameras.
iPhone 12 Max: The 6.1-inch iPhone will feature the same devices as the standard iPhone 12 - A14 processor, 4GB RAM, 128/256 GB storage, and dual back cameras. Instead, the biggest difference will be the screen. iPhone 12 Max will feature a larger, flexible 6.1-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2532x1170. Like the iPhone 12, the Max version will include a touch sensor.
iPhone 12 Pro: 6.1-inch flexible OLED in this model could be the first phone to offer 10-bit color support, according to Young. It will have a resolution of 2532x1170 with Y-OCTA support. There is a possibility that the screen of this phone will support a 120Hz refresh rate.
Expect 6GB RAM on this A14 powered model with 128GB to 512GB storage options. Rumor has it that the Pro series features four rear lenses, is identified by a 64-megapixel main sensor and LiDAR flight time sensor that will work with iPhone AR applications.
