For the past few generations of iPhones, Apple has released Smart Battery Cases that allow you to extend the runtime of your device. The Smart Battery Case introduced for the iPhone 11 family featured a silicon case that wrapped around the device and an integrated battery that charged the device via Qi wireless technology. Apple is reportedly taking a different approach with the battery case for this year's iPhone 12 family. According to a new report from Bloomberg, this new battery case won't add any additional protection to the iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro, and is simply meant to give you boosted runtimes. And given that the iPhone 12 introduced MagSafe to the equation for charging... Read more...
If you have an implantable medical device, Apple is warning that you might want to rethink what accessories you purchase for your brand-new iPhone 12 (and where you place them). In a new support document that was uploaded to its website over the weekend, Apple confirms that the iPhone 12 and its supporting accessories can potentially cause electromagnetic interference with medical devices. More specifically, Apple points to interference with lifesaving devices like pacemakers and defibrillators. Previous iPhones have included magnetic coils as part of its wireless charging mechanism, but the iPhone 12 includes a greater number of more powerful magnetics to support MagSafe accessories (like chargers...

The hits just keep coming for those that have bought a new iPhone 12 and are looking to tap into Apple's growing MagSafe accessory ecosystem. The company has just now confirmed that its 29W chargers, which were still on sale as recently as two years ago, are insufficient for charging two devices with the new MagSafe Duo wireless charger (which can charge an iPhone 12 and Apple Watch simultaneously). Before we even get into the latest charging fiasco with the MagSafe Duo, we must first tackle the absurdity of the notion that this wireless charger doesn't even come with a wall power adapter. A wall adapter is necessary for the product to work, and at $129, you would think that Apple would include... Read more...
Apple today opened preorders for its half of its upcoming 2020 smartphone family: the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro. Both smartphones come with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, 5G connectivity, and an A14 Bionic, but the difference is in the details. The iPhone 12 is the cheaper of the two, priced from $799*, and features an aluminum body, dual cameras (wide, ultra-wide), and 4GB of RAM to feed the A14 Bionic SoC. The iPhone 12 Pro, on the other hand, is priced from $999, features a stainless-steel body, triple cameras (wide, ultra-wide, telephone), a LIDAR sensor and 6GB of RAM. Apple iPhone 12 It should be noted that the iPhone 12 comes with just 64GB of internal storage, while the... Read more...
When Apple announced the iPhone 12 family earlier this week, the company was quick to tout the new 5nm A14 Bionic SoC that is powering the smartphones. The A14 Bionic is a 6-core chip, with two high-performance cores coupled with four low-power efficiency cores. More importantly, Apple boldly claimed that the A14 Bionic is up to 50 percent faster than SoCs found in competing Android flagships with regards to CPU and graphics performance. A listing for the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro has been discovered in Geekbench 5, and it does show some strong performance gains compared to the outgoing A13 Bionic. The iPhone 12 Pro was able to pull down a single-core score of 1597, while its multi-core... Read more...
After months of leaks and speculation, Apple iPhone 12 family has finally been officially announced. Given how much ink has been spilled about the smartphones up to this point, most of you should already be pretty familiar with Apple has to offer. As in previous years, the iPhone 12 lineup is being split into two distinct families: the mainstream iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12, along with the flagship iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12  These are the entry-level models in the new smartphone family, and they are both powered by Apple’s new A14 Bionic SoC. Apple’s new A14 Bionic SoC is a 6-core design that is claimed to be 50 percent faster than any... Read more...
Apple is holding its iPhone 12 event later today (1pm EST to be exact), but serial leaker Evan Blass has already provided us with the first official photos of the smartphones (along with a bonus). The images don’t really tell us what we didn’t already know, but they at least confirm the design of the smartphones along with the colors that they will be available in. The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be available in Black, Blue, Green, (Product) Red, and White. We can also confirmation of dual rear cameras on the back of the smartphones, which is in keeping with last year’s best-selling iPhone 11. iPhone 12 Pro Moving on to the “pro”... Read more...
Apple announced earlier this week that it will be revealing its iPhone 12 family on Tuesday, October 13th. The new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models are arriving later in the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are highly anticipated among the Apple faithful. Apple leaker Kang, who has a generally reliable track record when it comes to leaks, is giving us a final rundown of details for the upcoming smartphone family including pricing ahead of the official reveal. There aren't many surprises here compared to previous leaks, but we do get some revised pricing details for the cheapest member of the family: the iPhone 12 mini. iPhone 12 mini  5.4-inch OLED display A14...

It looks as though we finally have a date for Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 keynote: October 13th. For those that have followed Apple's history of iPhone announcements, this upcoming virtual event is arriving roughly a month later than usual. As you might expect, we can blame the COVID-19 pandemic for disrupting global supply chains, which delayed production. Apple isn't giving many hints with its invite, other than to say "Hi, Speed". We take this to mean the new A14 Bionic SoC, which was first introduced with the 4th generation iPad Air. According to benchmarks that leaked over the weekend, the A14 Bionic offers roughly a 20 percent uplift in performance over the A13 Bionic in the iPhone... Read more...
We’re still awaiting invites to be sent out for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro virtual keynote address. The phones are expected to be announced sometime this month (with availability in November), but Apple is being tight-lipped about the exact reveal date. In the meantime, we have to rely on leaks to give us some insight into what Apple is planning, and the latest one seems highly plausible. The leak pertains to pricing for the entire lineup starting with the iPhone 12 mini and topping out with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. According to the leaker, @a_rumors1111, here’s how the full stack will play out: iPhone 12 mini  64GB $649 128GB $699 256GB $799 iPhone... Read more...
Were just a few weeks away from Apple's big unveil for its iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro family, which means that the leaks are starting to come in at a faster pace. In recent days, we're learned that the smallest of the new phones will adopt the iPhone 12 mini branding, which is a first for the iPhone family. Today, however, we're getting some insight into the available storage capacities for the new smartphones, and it isn't looking good for those that had hoped that Apple would end it stingy ways. Although Jon Prosser has been hit or miss on recent Apple leaks, he's is indicating with confidence that the baseline iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 will come with just 64GB of storage standard. ...

The latest rumor making the rounds about Apple iPhone 12 lineup involves the naming strategy for the smartphones. Earlier this week, reputable Apple leaker L0vetodream alleged that Apple's smallest iPhone will not be called the iPhone 12 as previously rumored. Instead, he claimed that the device would be called the iPhone 12 mini. If this is indeed the case, that would mean that Apple would introduce an iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. This is a similar strategy to the company's iPad lineup which includes the iPad mini, iPad, and iPad Pro (along with the iPad Air). Further confirmation of L0vetodream's claims came today from Twitter user DuanRui, who posted... Read more...
Many analysts are expecting that the next generation of smartphones from Apple will represent a "mass upgrade" opportunity as customers look to upgrade older phones. The general idea is that many Apple customers have been sitting on the sidelines with older devices (i.e., first-generation iPhone SE, iPhone 8, etc.) waiting for the next big thing in smartphones to arrive: 5G connectivity. However, AT&T Communications CEO Jeff McElfresh is throwing some cold water on that notion, and instead says that the launch of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro families might not make a much bigger blip than previous years. "I do believe that you will see many of the iPhone subscribers move to upgrade to... Read more...
It has been widely expected that at least two members of the upcoming iPhone 12 family would feature 120Hz displays. Those devices were rumored to be the flagship 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, a late report from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that no iPhone 12 models will include 120Hz display; instead, all models will still support a maximum of 60Hz. This is a big letdown for Apple fans that have sat by and watched Android smartphones ship with 90Hz and 120Hz displays for quite some time now.  This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard of trouble in 120Hz land for the iPhone 12 Pro models, however. Back in late... Read more...
Updated 9/8/2020 @ 2:15pm EST Apple's event has been updated with the title "Time Flies" which sees to suggest that this event will solely be about the Apple Watch Series 6, and perhaps the iPad Air 4. The original story continues below: We finally have an announcement date for Apple’s fall lineup of devices: September 15th. The event will take place exactly one week from today and will be livestreamed starting at 1pm EST. Apple typically announces its new iPhones earlier in September, but the COVID-19 pandemic threw a monkey wrench into those plans by delaying production and testing of certain critical components. Unfortunately, Apple isn’t providing many details on what it will... Read more...
Apple’s upcoming fall keynote will no doubt be headlined by the iPhone 12 family of smartphones, which have been highly anticipated by consumers. These will mark the first iPhones to include 5G connectivity, and will incorporate an all-new design language for the first time since the iPhone X bowed in 2017. However, the new iPhones will be joined by a few other fresh additions to the family including new iPads and new Apple Watch models. We’ll be discussing what to expect from all of these product families below: iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Will Usher In 5G For Apple As we stated above, the iPhone 12 family will come standard with 5G connectivity, which is being provided – reportedly...

Last week during a conference call discussing its blowout Q2 2020 earnings, Apple confirmed that its iPhone 12 family would be delayed. “Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September,” said Apple CFO Luca Maestri. “This year we expect supply to be available a few weeks later.” We’re now learning that even with that delay, we still might not see all four expected iPhone 12 models launch at the same time. According to a new report from DigiTimes based on channel sources, Apple will launch the two 6.1-inch models in the first wave, while the second wave will follow-up with the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models. The difference in timing, according... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 family of smartphones, included rumored features, hardware specifications and dimensions. What we haven't heard about, however, is what the battery capacities will be for the iPhone 12 devices. Today, we're finally getting some clarification on what Apple has in store thanks to a leak from MySmartPrice, which claims to have obtained battery capacities from three separate iPhone 12 models. Model numbers A2471, A2431, and A2466 have appeared at various regulatory agencies around the globe, and reportedly align with the three distinct screen sizes that will be available this year. Based on the battery capacities... Read more...
iPhone 12 news is starting to heat up, and we've got a healthy dose of information to bring your way today. The latest round of news brings further confirmation of rumors that we've heard over the past few months, along with a cautionary tale for those of you looking to trade-in your current iPhone for a new iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro this fall. All iPhone 12 phones to feature OLED displays This rumor has stated as pretty much "fact" even before the iPhone 11/iPhone 11 Pro family launched last year. Now, the Nikkei Asian Review is throwing its hat into the ring, further confirming that all models will use an OLED display. With today's current-generation family, only the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone... Read more...
By now, we know pretty much all of the "rough details" concerning the incoming iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro family of smartphones. We've seen leaked renders, specs, and even hints at pricing for the smartphones. About all that is left is for Apple to actually reveal the devices to the public. Today, however, we're getting a fresh leak courtesy of Twitter user @Jin_Store, who claims to have gotten their hands on fresh molds for both entire iPhone 12 family. As is typically case when these molds are found in the wild, they are based on internal Apple schematics so that various third-party manufacturers can design and produce cases/accessories for the phones.  What the molds show is...

Apple's iPhone 12 family is perhaps the most highly anticipated smartphone launch of 2020. Apple typically announces its new iPhones in early September, and launches them by the end of the month (with a few exceptions). However, the COVID-19 pandemic has reportedly lengthened the gestation period of the new smartphones, leading to a delay in public availability for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. We've previously heard rumors about the launch delay, and that has seemingly been confirmed this week by Apple supplier Broadcom. Broadcom CEO Hock Tan stated this that one of its customers, a "large North American mobile phone" company, was experiencing a "major product cycle delay". Given its... Read more...
It's no secret that Apple's new iPhone 12 family is roughly four months away from its big unveil, and we've heard plenty of news regarding the specifications for the 2020 smartphone lineup. However, a new report is giving some details on what to expect inside the retail box with the iPhone 12; or rather, what's not going to be in the box. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is indicating that Apple is looking to remove an accessory that has been included in the box with every new iPhone purchase: EarPods. EarPods are Apple's "value-added" wired headphones that plug into the Lightning port on the bottom of all iPhones. They aren't the greatest-sounding earbuds on the planet, but they... Read more...
