The iPhone 12 has yet to be officially announced. In fact, it might even be delayed to November, but thanks to a tweet by @choco_bit, they have shared some information about Apple’s 2021 iPhones, the iPhone 13. To be more specific, they have shared details about the iPhone 13’s cameras.
We have been hearing rumors that because of the coronavirus pandemic, Apple could be delaying the launch of its 2020 iPhones. Whether or not this is true remains to be seen, but according to a new report from the Cowen investment bank, it seems that they believe this to be true as well.
It looks like Apple could have a winning formula on their hands because according to data released by Omdia, it has been suggested that the iPhone 11, released last year, is now the “world’s most popular” smartphone, surpassing that of the iPhone XR which was released in 2018.
According to a recent rumor, it was suggested that Apple could launch a completely portless iPhone in the future. However, it seems that the launch of such a device will only come in 2021 because in a tweet by leakster @choco_bit, the tweet claims that Apple is expected to continue to stick with the Lightning port for 2020’s iPhones.
Due to the fact that we have a camera on our phones, it’s easy to go trigger happy with them and snap everything in sight. As a result, our phone’s storage can fill up pretty quickly, which is why companies like Apple have introduced the HEIC file format. This is basically a file format that makes photos smaller in file size compared to more traditional formats like JPG.
Ever since Apple ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack, the company first bundled EarPods but included an adapter. The company later changed this by including EarPods with a Lightning connector, but now with the iPhone 12, a report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the device could finally see Apple ditch the EarPods for good.
According to some, it is said that if we are not using Bluetooth, we should turn it off. This is said to not only help improve battery life, but it also helps keep our devices more secure as it makes it undiscoverable by other devices. Turns out that there might be some merit to the latter claims, according to a recent research paper.
While it is expected that Apple will most likely be making some design changes to the exterior of the iPhone 12 where it will sport a brand new design, it seems that the changes won’t just end there. According to a recent leak on Chinese social media, it turns out that the innards of the iPhone 12 could be undergoing a redesign as well.
Last month, new customers to Google Fi on the iPhone could sign up using the embedded eSIMs in their devices (assuming it is supported). Now in a recent update, it seems that eSIM support has since been extended to existing iPhone customers, meaning that if you wanted to free up the physical SIM slot on your iPhone while using Google Fi, you will be able to.
According to the rumors, Apple is expected to launch as many as four new iPhone 12 models later this year. These iPhones will be offered in a variety of different display sizes, whose resolutions have since been revealed in a post made by analyst Ross Young on his Display Supply Chain Consultants website.
There have been some rumors floating about that suggests that Apple might be planning to ditch the ports on the iPhone and eventually release a portless iPhone. For those wondering when that will happen, it seems that a more recent rumor has indicated that this device could arrive in 2021.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple could be exploring the idea of creating a foldable phone. Exactly how this device will materialize is anyone’s guess, but in the meantime, YouTube channel iOS Beta News has cooked up a concept video that shows what the iPhone could look like with a foldable design.
Last week, it was reported that SteelSeries could have a new MFi gaming controller in the works called the Nimbus+. Sure enough, the rumors were true as the company has since officially announced the new gaming accessory. While it is maintaining the Nimbus branding, clearly there are some improvements made over its predecessor.
When the iPad Pro with a 120Hz refresh rate display was first announced, many were excited because since iPhones and iPads tend to share tech, it seemed to indicate that a 120Hz display could eventually find its way to the iPhone. However, over the years, that has yet to happen, but that could change this year.
