Apple may change up the screen sizes for the 2020 iPhones 12, add fresh design modifications to the body and also a key superpower below the hood. On this week’s Apple Core roundup, we’re looking far into the future to see what Apple might be cooking up for 2020, and talking in regards to the new features we’re still uncovering within the latest developer’s betas of iOS, iPadOS, and WatchOS.
2020 is shaping up to be a fascinating year for the iPhone with extensive modifications anticipated to return to each the exterior and inside of Apple’s flagship device.
This week, longtime Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), stated that Apple would both enlarge and reduce the display sizes on many 2020 iPhones. The 2020 model of the iPhone XS – iPhone 12? would shrink from 5.8 to 5.4 inches, whereas the 2020 XS Max would grow from 6.5 to 6.7 inches. Apple would presumably preserve the 6.1-inch screen measurement model as the middle ground option, probably the iPhone XR successor. These numbers coincide with these cited in a similar report revealed in Taipei-based newspaper Digitimes a couple of months back.
Triple-camera bump apart, the 2019 iPhones aren’t t rumored to convey any significant design adjustments to the lineup, which makes the prospect of an entire redesign in 2020 even more appealing.
Together with the new display size, Apple is rumored to be moving to an all OLED line-up for 2020. This would include the cheaper XR sequel (currently LCD) together with just a few other design tweaks like a smaller notch, flat edges like what we noticed within the 2018 iPad Pro and potentially new cowl supplies.
More importantly, 2020 is the yr Apple anticipated to make the jump to 5G, due to its latest settlement with Qualcomm following a lengthy legal dispute. According to Kuo’s report, although, 5G connectivity can be exclusive to the higher-end iPhone models. The 2020 model of the cheaper XR would have to wait to get Qualcomm’s 5G chip.
