The Apple’s Annual Developer Conference, WWDC 2020 has just wrapped up and people are more than excited to try and install the new beta updates for all of their Apple platforms. This year’s keynote has opened a new path for the next generation of technology for hardware as well, not just for software, and the most discussed so far is the up and coming iPhone 12, Apple’s flagship product, which is projected to have a massive breakthrough re-design, more efficient battery life, and new 5G connectivity. Here’s what we know so far based on multiple leaks, rumors, and sources.
Up to this point, we’re more than sure that Apple will release new three to four iPhone models. Three iPhone 12 and one other model or all iPhone 12. The new report projects a combined 35 million unit production output in Q2 2020 which would be 13% lower than the same period last year. Regardless of the actual iPhone 12 launch date, we should be expecting 4 new models, all of which will support 5G connectivity and will come with OLED panels.
Yes, all the 4 upcoming iPhone 12 models are likely to have smaller notches in comparison to the bigger ones in the current iPhone models. The screen diagonals will be between 5.4 and 6.7-inches with two 6.1-inch models in the middle. For more details about the notch, refer to the photo.
In terms of design, we’re expecting iPad Pro-like square housing.
Or a look similar to the first generation iPhone SE.
We’ve just heard a bunch of gossipy tidbits on the shading front, yet it’s almost certain that Apple will probably follow a similar example of the last couple of iPhone dispatches. That implies more hues for the more affordable iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max, while the iPhone 12 Pro models will embrace darker, progressively customary shading plans, for example, Space Gray and Silver.
In any event, one source says that Apple will stir things up by offering a Midnight Blue shading for the iPhone 12. The blue would replace the Midnight Green shading offered on the iPhone 11 Pro and might be selective to the new Pro models. ConceptsiPhone made a video flaunting what a Navy Blue iPhone 12 Pro may resemble, and Svetapple has distributed a significantly later mockup of the iPhone 12 Pro in this new shade.

iOS 14, as announced in the recent WWDC 2020 keynote event. Apple’s iOS 14 will make a big appearance on the iPhone 12 when the product officially releases this fall and the bits of gossip point to a ton of new highlights that should change the manner in which you utilize the iPhone. iOS 14 will apparently offer another perform multiple tasks switcher, another rundown see the choice for the home screen, at any rate, one new enlarged reality application, and a path for you attempt applications from the application store without downloading them.
Also, according to Forbes,
06/23 Update: Apple has used WWDC to reveal one key feature which may impact your decision to buy an iPhone 12 model. The company has confirmed information leaked earlier this month that iOS 14 would support every iOS 13-compatible iPhone. That’s a remarkable commitment to longevity, meaning the 2015 iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone SE will receive updates well into 2021. With Apple selling over 100M units of these phones and millions still in use, that’s a level of generosity which has the potential to impact sales of the iPhone 12 but will be much appreciated in a year which has had massive financial implications for many. With Apple also cutting the iPhone 12 entry-level price, the company has really stepped up here.
06/24 Update: with the new iPhone 12 chassis (if not cameras and notch) now locked in, further welcome news has come from respected Apple leaker Mr White (famous for revealing Apple prototypes). The insider revealed the iPhone 12 line-up will come with a 20W power adapter and posted images. While this is less important for Pro models, which already ship with an 18W charger, this is a big deal for the entry-level iPhone 12 and new iPhone 12 Max as Apple ships the iPhone 11 with a measly 5W charger that can take upwards of 2h to deliver a full charge. This meant many users had to budget in a further $30 for the 18W charger and $19 for Lightning to USB-C cable. Factor the iPhone 12’s $50 price cut on top of this and it’s a major saving of almost $100 — especially considering the iPhone 12’s eye-opening new display.
New Cameras With Lidar Technology
A report in Digitimes affirms that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will have two back cameras, and the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have three back cameras in addition to another LiDAR sensor. This new update is due to the reason that Apple has started making implementations one step at a time for its AR and VR based products, which should be coming to the public in the next couple of years. Microsoft and Apple have been long-rumored to be working on both AR and VR since 2017. Apple has recently acquired a small VR company called NEXTVR and Microsoft’s Hololens and Halolens has been rumored to be using a technology developed by a company based in Washington called Microvision. Thus we are likely going to expect another rival play between the two Silicon Valley pioneers in the coming decade.
It’s additionally generally expected that the new iPhone 12 will include another focal point — a LiDAR time-of-flight sensor. Expert Ming-Chi Kuo anticipates that such an expansion should at any rate two iPhone 12 models, undoubtedly the Pro forms. Ensuing reports on iPhone 12 specs have supported that guarantee, however a progression of CAD schematics spilled by YouTuber EverythingApplePro portrays just the Max variation with the LiDAR sensor, so there’s an opportunity it winds up limited to that model all things considered.
