Millions of people all over the globe wait for September for one reason only, a new iPhone.
11:41 05 October 2020
Every single year we get a new model that brings few upgrades. This year the situation is different as you shall see below. There are a lot of things and facts to know, so without further ado, let's begin.
The new iPhone will be late
On September 15th this year we saw Apple revealing two brand new smartwatches and a few iPads. But, the details about a new iPhone were unavailable. Yes, Apple is working and will reveal a new, iPhone 12 this year but with a delay.
Due to the pandemic, the facilities Apple owns in China work with smaller capacity or they do not operate at all. All of this means that the new phone will be released and will hit the market later than usual. You should expect it on October the 14th (maybe on October the 13th).
It is worth noting that Apple shops work with decreased capacity and have shorter working hours in the United States and other parts of the globe, due to the pandemic. There are no details when this will end and when we can expect Apple stores to work normally.
Design and accessories
Some claim that the new iPhone 12 will look the same as the previous model. This is more likely than to see a radical change. On the other hand, we have some speculations that iPhone 12 will come with flat edges. This is possible due to the fact new iPad offers a similar design. One way or another, the new model will look similar with smaller changes compared to the previous model.
When it comes to accessories, we have two news. They are not great news though. Apple will probably eliminate EadPods from the package. The only way to get them is to purchase them additionally or to purchase Air Pods. They come at $150 price for the ordinary version and $250 for Pro version. It is also possible that the wall charger isn’t included in the package. The odds for that are low. This may have a negative effect in states such as Florida where Apple has a massive market share of 70.47%.
4 versions will become available, maybe at a lower price
One of the main changes compared to the previous model is the fact iPhone 12 may come in 4 different sizes. They start with the standard version with 5.4 inches display, Max and Pro models with 6.1 inches, and Pro max which should have 6.7 inches size. This is an obvious change. It allows different users to pick a version that suits them the most. There is no need to carry a large device if you want a smartphone with a smaller screen.
It is important to add that the new iPhone 12 will come with a 120 Hz refresh rate. The best part is the fact this upgrade will be available on all versions of the phone. Even more importantly, the Pro model may come with Pro Motion display. This is already available on iPad Pro and it looks great. Faster refresh rate makes the phone operate smoother, faster, and more linear in general. The same technology is already used on some Samsung models and high-end or gaming smartphones.
It is known that a new iPhone is more affordable than the previous generation. For example, iPhone 11 costed $699 at release. This is $50 more affordable than the iPhone XR that was released in 2018. However, this is just speculation. There are odds that Apple doesn’t meet the requirements and sells the iPhone 12 at a higher price!
The colors will remain the same as with previous models. The only change is the presence of dark blue which will be available for the first time on Apple devices. It is always nice when Apple adds something new that can completely change how a smartphone looks.
iPhone 12 will likely support 5G
There have been a lot of speculations and a lot of news regarding the connection between Apple, QUALCOMM, and Intel in their 5G technology development. You may know that Apple purchased the 5G modem business from Intel for $1 billion.
However, Apple is still working on a 5G network. Add the fact that this is the most appealing upgrade smartphone users want and need and we can deduce that iPhone 12 will likely support it. 5G is an extremely fast (20GBps) internet connection that comes with impressive capabilities today. It can load a webpage or download an app almost instantly. All rival companies already have a model or two with this support, hence iPhone 12 will be the right model to test it and use 5G on an Apple device. Fast downloads will be good for fans of games, sports apps and other content.
The new iPhone 12 will probably look like the previous model, will come with a better display, better specifications, and even 5G. It will be a significant upgrade compared to the current model we have on the market right now but with some drawbacks. All of this means that Apple fans will be happy but not thrilled.
