Items tagged with iphone 12 pro

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...
The information surrounding the iPhone 12 family has been leaking at a furious pace in the past few weeks. Today, however, we're getting our most detailed look at one of the most important components of Apple's new, four-phone lineup: the displays. Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) has confirmed details that we've already gleaned on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, including the fact that the former will be available in 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch sizes, while the latter will be available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes. The new information comes with respect to who will supply these panels, and what resolution each will carry. According to DSCC, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will feature... Read more...
Each passing week has brought us new information on Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 family, and this week is no different. According to previous leaks, we're fairly confident that the 2020 smartphone lineup will include 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models along with 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro models The latest leak claims that Apple will finally increase the base storage on its smartphones from 64GB to 128GB. Apple has notoriously been stingy when it comes to base storage on its devices (the latest iPad still comes saddled with 32GB for the entry-level SKU), and it's a slap in the face to customers paying $999 for a current-generation iPhone 11 Pro to only get 64GB. Apple's... Read more...
The rumormill has been working overtime when it comes to the iPhone 12 family, as this is about the time that leaks start coming more into focus as production gears up. This time around, we're getting some clarification on the smallest member of the upcoming iPhone 12 family: the 5.4-inch model. According to Filip Koroy of EverythingApplePro, he was "completely wrong on the size of the 5.4-inch" on his previous iPhone 12 renders, adding "ours was way too big". He went on to indicate that his latest mockups have been reimagined using dimensions from Japanese website Macotakara. According to Macotakara, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will truly offer flagship performance in a pint-sized... Read more...
Apple earlier this month gave a short in the arm to its mid-range smartphone lineup with the iPhone SE. Putting a current-generation A13 Bionic SoC into the chassis of the popular iPhone 8 form-factor at the $399 price point has proven to be a popular move for the company. Now that the iPhone SE introduction has come and gone, everyone is turning their attention to how the upcoming iPhone 12 family with square up with respect to pricing and features. These will be the first smartphones from Apple with 5G connectivity, so many are rightfully concerned that we might see yet another price hike from Apple (as we've seen from Android OEMs like Samsung and OnePlus). That might not actually... Read more...
If this were a normal year, Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 family of smartphones would be announced in early September and would begin shipping later that month. However, due to the complexities of developing a product and procuring components during the coronavirus pandemic, it appears that the debut and launch will actually be pushed back.  This news comes to us courtesy of reliable Apple leaker Ming-Chi Kuo, who is giving his latest guidance on the iPhone 12, the iPhone SE and the alleged iPhone SE Plus. According to Kuo, the iPhone 12 will come in a total of 4 versions, up from 3 on the current iPhone 11 family. There will reportedly be at least 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch... Read more...
Is the CAD render below our first good look at the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro Max? It very well could be if accurate, and the details from this latest leak confirms information that was first revealed earlier this week in a separate report. It was previously reported the iPhone 12 Pro would feature an exterior design more akin to the iPad Pro family with the soft corners being tossed in favor of flat sides and hard edges. To our eyes, it looks like a mix of both iPad Pro and iPhone 5S/iPhone SE styling cues, which date all the way back to 2010’s iPhone 4. We also see a much smaller display notch for the earpiece speaker, Face ID hardware, and selfie camera. It’s also reported that... Read more...
Yesterday, we brought you news of a rear camera pod redesign for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 Pro family. In addition to the triple cameras that were introduced with the iPhone 11 Pro family, there's also a new LiDAR sensor and a centrally-mounted LED flash for a more balanced appearance. Today, we're getting a glimpse at the front of the smartphone for the first time. The first thing that stands out is that the display notch surrounding the earpiece speaker and Face ID hardware is much smaller this time around. The notch was one of the defining features of the iPhone X when it debuted in 2017, and was quickly copied by Android manufacturers. However, Android OEMs then swiftly pivoted... Read more...
Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro might separate themselves from the regular iPhone 12 by incorporating a 3D time of flight (ToF) sensor into the mix. There will likely be other differences between the Pro models and regular model, but if a breakdown of Apple's iOS 14 code is any indication, the ToF sensor will be one of the major distinctions. An increasingly number of flagship phones have been adopting 3D ToF cameras. They are not used for taking pictures in the traditional sense, but to map out a 3D space. Using a light signal, a ToF camera can provide more accurate depth mapping compared to an ordinary camera lens, with distance and volume measurements. The folks at 9To5Mac... Read more...
