For the past several years, Apple’s smartphones have been a mixture between LCD and OLED displays, with the lower-end models using LCD while the more expensive offerings using OLED. However, that is expected to change this year because according to a report from Nikkei, it seems that Apple’s entire iPhone 12 lineup will use OLED screens.
It has been several iPhone generations since Apple removed Touch ID on their iPhones and introduced Face ID. However, as potentially more secure Face ID is over Touch ID, it’s hard to deny how much more convenient Touch ID is, especially in this day and age where we’re wearing masks which makes authenticating with Face ID a bit more difficult.
As the smartphone market matures, it means that in terms of performance gains, it isn’t quite leaps and bounds like it used to be. This means that handset makers need to find new ways to improve on their devices, and for the upcoming iPhone 12, it seems that Apple will be focusing on the camera.
There seems to be a rumor making its rounds that claims that for the iPhone 12, Apple will not be bundling accessories with the device. This means that the iPhone 12 might not ship with both the EarPods and the charger, both of which are very common accessories that we see bundled with pretty much all smartphones.
We carry our phones with us all the time which makes it the perfect vessel for storing certain documents and cards, like credit/debit cards, loyalty cards, boarding passes, and more. However, it seems that Apple is envisioning a future in which the iPhone could potentially replace other documents like our passports or driver’s license.
The notch design in smartphones has been a fiercely debated topic, where there are some who hate the design, while others don’t seem too bothered. Companies have tried various workarounds, such as using hole-punch cutouts, or popup cameras, but neither of these are necessarily ideal.
When you buy a smartphone, you can reasonably expect that it will come with a pair of earphones and also a charger. These are the basic accessories that are typically bundled with the majority of smartphones, but Apple is expected to turn things on their head by doing away with them completely.
Apple typically launches new iPhones in September. However, this year there have been rumors suggesting that the iPhone 12 could be delayed to either October or November, but there have also been reports to suggest that the phone’s launch is apparently still on track for a launch in September.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max could come with 120Hz displays. This is certainly pretty exciting if the rumors are true, but according to Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants, he claims to have heard from his contacts that this is not true.
If you were to take a look at video recordings you made either on your phone or camera from back in the day and play it back on a display with a higher resolution, it might look a bit fuzzy or grainy. This is because back in the day, videos on our phones were captured at a lower resolution.
In the recent weeks and months, we’ve started to see more iPhone 12 leaks. These leaks merely show us photos and concept images of what the phone could look like, but how will it look like in person, and more importantly, how will it feel in our hands? Thanks to a video by iupdate, we now have an idea.
According to recent rumors, it has been suggested that the iPhone 12 might not ship with EarPods. This was semi-acceptable as the EarPods aren’t exactly the best of earphones, so we’re not sure how many people would actually miss them. However, it was later reported that the iPhone 12 might not ship with a charger, which sounded a bit sketchy.
Apple is rumored to be launching four iPhone 12 models in the coming months. They will, of course, have to be different from each other with their own unique selling points, like the base model being rumored to come in at a price of $549, but what about the higher-end iPhone 12 models?
Apple will be launching several new iPhones later this year, if the rumors are to be believed. Unlike last year where they launched three models, this year could see the launch of four models. There will be a base model, followed by higher-end models. While 5G has been rumored for a while, it is not expected to be available across the entire lineup.
