Exposure of The iPhone 12 Plans.
Apple’s senior analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has leaked the provisional launch dates of upcoming iPhones for 2020 in early September. Apple’s iPhone 12 family is anticipated to be based on the older and boxy iPhone 4 design and containing a 5G technology on every model.
Kuo expects that Apple will launch 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inches, and a 6.7-inch OLED iPhone models in 2020. He claims that all these iPhones will also provide 5G connectivity. The variation between these models, other than screen sizes, will be camera technology.
Kuo further claimed that the 5.4-inch OLED iPhone will come up with a dual-camera setup on the back. The lower-end 6.1-inch iPhone will contain a similar dual-camera system. The higher-end 6.1-inch model and the 6.7-inch model will contain triple-lens camera arrangements as well as time-of-flight 3D sensing technology.
Leaks regarding The iPhone SE 2 Plus
Leaks claimed that the iPhone SE is going to be revived. The current leaks suggest that the iPhone SE 2 will be derived from the iPhone 8 designs.
Kuo also stated that "iPhone SE2 Plus" will arrive in the first half of 2021, in 5.5- or 6.1-inch sizes, with a full-screen design. It is expected that the iPhone will feature a smaller notch, because of no Face ID support, and Touch ID integrated in the power button.
Look Steve, No Wires
Apple has intentions to launch iPhone in 2021 have with a wire free design which means no headphone jack (done) and no lightning port is needed for charging .The iPhone will rely on Qi-compatible wireless charging and will launch with portable battery packs. This leak suggests that Apple is not switching to USB-C, but somewhat the company is dropping the port entirely.
Apple’s New Screen Technology For 2020
Apple is working on MiniLED screens for its upcoming devices of 2020. These screens will offer the advantages of OLED panels, such as wider color gamut and higher contrast, without the problems of burn-in.
MiniLED screens are similar to normal LCD displays but they shine a backlight through pixels. The major advantage of Mini-LED is that the user can stuff a lot more LEDs into a display than on a typical panel. This permits the user of local dimming. It is expected that iPad update will come in 3rd quarter while for MacBook in 4th quarter of 2020.
Apple Issues Location Data Privacy Warning
Apple has confessed that user’s location data could be used by a number of applications even if a user had denied permission to it, especially the software controlling ultra-wideband communication that needs geo-fencing in some locations.
Apple has admitted recently that the settings in millions of iPhones are manipulating about the use of location data, and assured to fix it.
A New Shiny From Apple Music
This week saw Apple hosted an event in New York, that showcased some musical acts which would impact the Apple Music store this year. Apple didn’t present a Gold Disc to the winners, but the award was styled in a circle of silicon mounted on some classic Apple material. The Award had a circular panel of silicon chips at its center, a super-flat, enormously thin wafer of chips. These are same chips that go into an iPhone.
Intel, Qualcomm, and Apple’s 5G Modems
Apple’s purchasing of Intel’s 5G modem operation provides Cupertino with a chance to be independent and (eventually) not be obliged to Qualcomm, but it is not a happy event for Intel. Court filings the current week highlighted the actions of Qualcomm and Intel’s belief that it was strapped out of the modem space.
According to Intel, it was forced out of the market because of Qualcomm's patent licensing and supported the FTC's case in contradiction of Qualcomm.
