We’ve got the sauce on what Apple's cooking up with their 2020 iPhone range
After an eventful WWDC in late June which saw the announcement of iOS 14 (anyone else excited to finally have access to home screen widgets?), we have a much clearer picture on what we can expect to see with the iPhone 12.
Traditionally, Apple will announce and then release their latest iPhone offering in early September, however this time round the launch date is up in the air due to the on-going impacts of Coronavirus. This is partly because overseas suppliers and manufacturers are still facing delays, or operating in a limited capacity, making it difficult to piece together the complex process of a worldwide phone release.
Despite the ongoing disruptions, as we’ve seen with many industries over the past few months, the show must go in a lot of respects and Apple is expected to launch four new iPhone 12 models towards the back quarter of this year.
With all this in mind, here’s everything we know so far about the iPhone 12.
At a glance: rumoured iPhone 12 features
- Expected September/October release
- Four models (iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro & iPhone 12 Pro Max)
- 5G connectivity for the first time
- Refreshed phone design - flat edges are back folks
- Triple-lens 3D camera
- A14 Bionic Chip
- 120Hz refresh rate on the Pro models
Four 5G models
Since a report in late 2019 from highly respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it’s become widely assumed that we would see four iPhone 12 models reach our shores at the back end of 2020 - better yet, according to Kuo, all four iPhone 12 models are set to include 5G connectively for the first time.
In terms of size, the iPhone 12 & iPhone 12 Max are expected to come in at 5.4 inches and 6.1 inches, with the Pro devices; iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, coming in at 6.1 and 6.7 inches respectively.
