Apple is on track to announce its new iPhone 12 family sometime this month, or perhaps in early October. Given testing delays that cropped up due to COVID-19, the latest iPhones are launching a few weeks later than previous models. With that being said, one spec that has seemingly been confirmed for all of the upcoming iPhones is 5G support, but a new report is shedding light on to what exactly that will entail. According to sources for Fast Company, only the iPhone 12 Pro Max will have mmWave support. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the largest of the incoming smartphones, and features a 6.7-inch OLED display (1242 x 2688). Allegedly, only the iPhone 12 Pro Max has enough space inside its chassis...

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...

Apple is expected to unveil its full iPhone 12 lineup next month, which will consist of two iPhone 12 and two iPhone 12 Pro SKUs. However, it’s the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max that will be the focus of our attention this morning. Serial leaker Jon Prosser first posted screens shots taken from within the Settings app of an alleged 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. The device in question is a production validation test (PVT), or prototype. There’s an enable LiDAR toggle, which is labeled “This enables LiDAR assisted auto focus and subject detection for Video and Night Mode.” LiDAR functionality for Apple was first introduced earlier this year with the fourth generation...

Apple’s next-generation iPhone 12 family is right around the corner, which means that many people are looking forward to price cuts on the current family of iPhones. Apple’s current-generation flagships consist of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. According to a new report, only the iPhone 11 will remain in production, and it will get a fat discount as well. iAppleTimes is reporting that the iPhone 11 will drop in price from $699 to $549 following the launch of the iPhone 12 family. If you recall, Apple made a similar move last year, when it offered the iPhone XR at just $599 as opposed to its launch price of $749. At the same time, both the iPhone 11 Pro and... Read more...
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...
It looks as though Apple is preparing to launch a smaller iPhone when its iPhone 12 series arrives. While nothing has been confirmed, the latest iOS 14 beta provides evidence that an iPhone 12 model with a 5.4-inch display could be imminent, which is still bigger than the second generation iPhone SE (4.7-inch), but smaller than the smallest iPhone 11 (iPhone 11 Pro, at 5.8 inches). The new and smaller display size is not outright mentioned in the iOS 14 beta, but according to folks at 9To5Mac, is certainly intimated through an extension of Apple's nifty Display Zoom feature. To understand why, we need to talk about Display Zoom. This is a feature that has been around since the iPhone 6. What... 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...
We're likely a little over two months away from Apple's big reveal of the iPhone 12 family of products, and luckily for us, many details concerning the smartphones have already leaked out. For instance, we know that there will reportedly be four models release, with displays ranging from 5.4 inches to 6.7 inches in size. However, what has been hard to decipher is how these models will look in-hand, in real life, compared to their predecessors. This is especially the case with the iPhone 12, which for the first time brings a 5.4-inch display panel to the iPhone family. iPhone SE, iPhone 12, iPhone 7 (From top to bottom) MacRumors forum member iZac took it upon himself to obtain a dummy model of...

Apple is always out to save some money with its products and increase accessory sales on the backend. In the past, Apple has pushed accessory sales with iPhone models when it did things like move away from the 3.5 mm headphone jack to Lightning port for connecting headphones (which prompted the meteoric rise fo AirPods). According to notable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple won't even include a wall charger in the box with the iPhone 12 models. The new 20W power adapter, which is the charger that plugs into the wall and features a USB-C port, will be sold separately according to Kuo. While many iPhone users will be moving to the iPhone 12 from previous generations of Apple devices and will have chargers... Read more...
Apple shook up the mid-range smartphone market when it launched the second-generation iPhone SE earlier this year. What made the device so appealing – other than its $399 price -- was the fact that it featured a relatively compact design (as afforded by its 4.7-inch display) and a flagship-caliber A13 Bionic SoC (which is also found in the iPhone 11 family of smartphones). However, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 is going to be an even louder shout-out to those that lament the increasing dimensions of today’s flagship smartphones. We already knew that the cheapest iPhone 12 model would receive a 5.4-inch display, but the folks at EverythingApplePro have posted... 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...

COVID-19 has really changed our way of lives, from the way we shop, to the way we work, and even with regards to the way that our children learn. It has also limited our ability to congregate with friends, and take part in the time-honored tradition of, you guessed it, group selfies. Apple could change that with a newly granted patent for what it calls “synthetic group selfies”. Given that many of us have been taking part in social distancing to help cut down on the spread of COVID-19, we obviously can’t be in close proximity to our friends and family for selfies. So, Apple’s solution would use software AI “magic” to captures images of people located in different... Read more...
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...
Sometimes it feels like if you have seen one flagship smartphone, you have seen them all—most of the designs are similar to one another these days. Perhaps in a bid to shake things up a tad, Apple is supposedly gearing up to launch a new round of iPhone models that will borrow some design elements of the company's iPad family. There will be four presumed iPhone 12 models in all, including two that will replace the iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11 Pro, and two to replace the regular iPhone 11, according to what "people familiar with the plans" told Bloomberg. It is said that the two higher end SKUs will ditch the curved edges found on current iPhone 11 models and replace them with stainless... Read more...
