Colors

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.

Hardware

1A14 chipset based on TSMC’s 5nm process.
4GB RAM on the entry-level 5.4" and 6.1" iPhones
6 GB RAM on the premium 6.1" and 6.7" iPhones
512GB internal storage with a possibility of a 128GB base storage option replacing the current 64GB one

Software

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.

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.
