Update: Apple has confirmed it’s planning to launch its new iPhones a little later this year. “Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September, this year we expect supply to be available a few weeks later,” said Apple CFO Luca Maestri in an earnings call with investors today. He didn’t reveal why this year’s iPhone supply is delayed or constrained, but rumors of an iPhone delay have been circulating for months.
We’re just a few months after The iPhone 11 released to public which brought very little in terms of an upgrade comparing to previous iPhone generation. Now, we see the leaks of next generation iPhone. They called iPhone 12 (?).
Rumors said that Apple had sent out invitations Thursday to a September 12, 2020 for a media event at which the US tech giant is predicted to unveil new iPhone models for the 10th anniversary of the culture-changing smartphones. The keenly anticipated event are going to be the primary to require place within the Steve Jobs Theater at its new “spaceship” campus in Silicon Valley .
In trademark style, Apple revealed little within the invitation that provided the date, time, location and a message that read “Let’s meet at our place”. Apple is under particular pressure to dazzle because the California-based company looks for tactics to take care of its image as an innovation leader during a global market showing signs of slowing.
“Clearly, Apple wants to undertake something different for the 10th anniversary” of the iPhone, NPD Group analyst Stephen Baker told AFP. Some reports say a replacement iPhone will include a high-quality, edge-to-edge screen with a notch within the highest for an ear-piece and a further camera supporting 3D face recognition and selfies. Some speculate that the new handset will have a glass backing that gives wireless charging.
“We expect a significant design refresh on Apple,” GlobalData analyst Avi Greengart told AFP. “That has been a sore point, especially in China. People are looking to point out off a standing symbol, so it must look different than Huawei or Xiaomi, and that I think it’ll .” Apple has declined to debate speculation, which has included mention as many as three new iPhone handsets, including a premium model priced at around $1,000.
“Less” button? Maybe…
The most dramatic changes were expected within the premium model, which could go so far on get obviate a ‘home’ button that has been a main control feature since the iPhone made its debut in 2007. Flicking or swiping gestures could replace the house button function, enabling the handset face to seem almost all-screen. The iPhone could also get more rounded corners.
Some news speculation said that new iPhones would, of course, be designed to showcase the capabilities of the newest version of Apple’s iOS software for powering mobile devices. Apple showed iOS 11 to developers at a conference earlier this year and is probably going to release it with the new iPhone models. The mobile OS boasted new camera features, Siri digital assistant made smarter, and therefore the potential for augmented reality applications. Well, Sept. 12 event could also feature updated versions of Apple TV and Apple Watch.
Though Apple is predicted to continue offering both higher-end (aka more expensive) iPhones and lower-end (more affordable) iPhones in 2020, all of the devices may come equipped with OLED displays this year, with Apple doing away with LCDs for its iPhone lineup.
Apple’s use of OLED across the iPhone lineup will leave “more flexible handset design.” Apple is testing OLED displays from Chinese company BOE Display, which makes LCDs for Apple’s iPads and MacBooks. Apple has been using Samsung OLED displays in recent OLED iPhones and is predicted to continue doing so.
So, let see what you can get on this Sept…
