The exact date for the launch of iPhone 12 has not been officially declared yet, but it is sure that apple will unveil its biggest series by the end of 2020. Earlier, all the series were launched in September- usually around the second week of the month.

What are your perceptions about 2020 iphone looks?

The 2020 iPhones will be featured with a metal frame likely similar to iPhone 4. The rear of all the phones will be made of glass and the edges are more squared than the rounded ones. We will be noticing that iPhone 12 has flatter sides and a smaller notch including the sim tray that has moved beneath the volume button.

Prosser’s information suggests that iPhone 12 will use aluminum and iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will come with a stainless steel body.

iPhone 12 Pro could look with flat edges, smaller notch and a fourth camera which probably be a LiDAR sensor.

IN WHAT COLORS APPLE WILL RELEASE ITS IPHONE 12?

As per the rumors, Apple can debut a navy blue color on its top model. Since midnight green color in iPhone 11 Pro was sold beyond expectations, so this color may be kept this year also or it can be replaced by the navy shade. 

iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone Pro Max will be announced in space grey , silver and gold alongside but a confirm evidence is not yet seen. 

IPHONE 12 CAMERA

Camera is the major area where iPhones excel. In this model the main change is likely to be the addition of LiDAR sensor. As per reports iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will be coming with two rear cameras. iPhone 12 Pro and  iPhone 12 Pro Max will be announced with three rear camera having a LiDAR sensor with them at the back.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects in at least two models the addition of new lens- LiDAR time of flight, expecting the sensors to take more accurate shots.     

IPHONE 12 AND ITS 5G CONNECTIVITY

Another big change is the 5G connectivity- using Qualcomm’s modem chips. In July 2019, Kuo predicted that iPhone may build 5G connections in one of its models. But this feature is going to be supported as per the leaks. Apple analyst Jon leaks that 5.4 inch and 6.4 inch iPhone model may not support mmWave and 6GHz 5G.  

WHAT WILL BE THE iOS IN IPHONE 12?

On June 22 Apple’s big software developer conference is all set. It is called WWDC 2020 and here we can hear about iOS 14 the very first time. Leaks reports that iOS 14 will be a multitask switcher. For the very first time the iPhone users would be able to choose their own default aaps for different activities.

That said, little is accurately rumored about iOS 14 so far. 

FUTURE UPCOMINGS OF IPHONE

Rumor says all. Apple designers are aiming to remove all the ports and buttons for a clean iPhone. If wireless charging technology improves Apple will launch an iPhone without any lightning ports in 2021.

According to Ming- Chi Kuo, it will be the highest model of Apple. He also expects an iPhone SE 2+ with full screen display, no face ID, fingerprint unlock inbuilt sensor in 2021. Apple could also adopt Snapdragon X60 in iPhone from 2021.
