For months, reports have indicated that this fall’s iPhone models will have three camera lenses in a single large hump, a design that’s drawn criticism. An artist created a concept design of what the device would look like without the hump.
There’s a glimmer of hope that Apple will once again make a truly budget handset. Information leaking out of this company’s supply chain indicates that there could be an iPhone SE 2 introduced in 2020.
While Apple seems to be phasing out fingerprint scanners in favor of facial recognition, sources in the Asian iPhone supply chain reportedly claim that Touch ID will actually be back next year, and better than ever.
The 2020 iPhone will also supposedly be the first with 5G as well as a 3D rear-facing sensor.
The iPhone 11 (or whatever Apple calls it) is still about four months away and there is no shortage of creative concepts hitting the internet lately guessing what Apple will release.
This latest concept might be one of the craziest ones we’ve seen, but god damn is it beautiful. Instead of sandwiching a metal frame in between the front and back glass pieces of the iPhone, this iPhone 11 concept images what it would look like if Apple used a wraparound screen for the entire device. The end result is a luminous band around the entire phone that replaces the volume and power buttons and unlocks new possibilities for shortcuts on the side.
The company that makes all Apple’s chips is nearly ready to make 5 nanometer processors, down from the 7nm ones it’s manufacturing now. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s innovation reportedly will bring notable performance gains to next year’s iPhone and iPad.
The 2021 models should get a boost as well. And it’s even possible these chips will appear in future Macs.
The unveiling of iOS 13 is expected in less than a month, and a new report spills details on many of the improvements supposedly coming. For iPhone users, iOS 13 is bringing refinements to already existing features. iPad users, on the other hand, are supposedly getting plenty of new capabilities.
A new video wraps up all the unconfirmed reports about Apples next handset. And there’s a lot to work with. Details about the iPhone 11 have been leaking out steadily, even though the launch is still half a year away.
