Every year, the much anticipated new generation of iPhones generates a lot of rumors and speculation, and many informants and analysts claim that they know what this year’s launch will bring. Appleinsider has compiled a collection of rumors that may have hinted at what the iPhone 12 looks like and other information. < p > < p > Apple usually holds its autumn launch around September 10 to announce the most important products of the year. This tradition has lasted for eight years. Although other events are sometimes held in October, this time is usually used to release computers and other products. However, this year, the new outbreak has made everything uncertain. On August 12, whistleblower Jon Prosser tweeted that Apple would break with tradition, announce changes to iPad products, and launch the “Apple watch series 6” in the week of September 7, and the annual iPhone event will be held in October. < / P > < p > another twitter source called “ihacktu” insisted that the new iPhone would be released on September 8, while the new iPad pro and apple silicon Macs (computers with Apple’s own chips) would happen on October 27, a similar time structure with previous years. < / P > < p > others believe that Apple itself has leaked the date of the launch. Earlier, a “test” video of an event scheduled to start at 1:15 p.m. ET on September 10 appeared on Apple’s YouTube channel and was then deleted. However, Sina digital believes that there will be no press conference before or after September 10. Now it’s the end of August, and if Apple doesn’t announce the time yet, that means it could be delayed by a few weeks this year, as apple itself revealed in its earnings report. < / P > < p > the epidemic has caused problems in Apple’s supply chain, which many believe has interfered with plans to ship new iPhones. Indeed, in its earnings call, Apple’s leadership also mentioned a delay of several weeks, but there was no clear time. < / P > < p > as for when the new product will go on sale, depending on the timing of the launch, Prosser believes that Apple may divide the launch into two phases, with the mid-level iPhone 12 model scheduled for the week of October 19, followed by the “professional version” in November. ——It was later than expected. In a report released on August 3, DIGITIMES, a media focusing on the industry chain, also put forward the situation of two stages of release, but they think it is to release two 6.1-inch models first, and then the flagship version of 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch screens. The report also claims that all new products will be delivered two to four weeks later than usual. < / P > < p > like the current iPhone 11 generation, the two series will obviously differ in several ways, one of which is the screen. Although it is expected that all series will be OLED, it is rumored that the screen of Pro model is better, with “super retina XDR”, 120Hz promotion dynamic refresh and 10 bit color depth. In theory, this means that the pro model will be able to display a larger color range than the non pro version, as well as better HDR video performance. < / P > < p > in late August, the promotion function has been included in iPhone 12 Pro max, and users can manually turn on or off “high refresh rate” and “adaptive refresh rate”. < / P > < p > releases of new iPhone models usually include the latest chips designed by apple, and the iPhone 12 should continue to follow. After A13 bionic, apple is likely to choose the name “A14.”. < / P > < p > early rumors pointed out that Apple would use the 5-nanometer process of its chip partner TSMC and possibly use the 6-nanometer process to make chips, the former is more likely. TSMC has started mass production using its 5-nanometer process in the second quarter of 2020. < / P > < p > in July, a series of images posted on twitter exposed the traces of Apple’s A14 chip (which is actually just the ram part of the chip). It did not provide any real details about the chip’s performance except for the name on the top of the chip. The date “2016” on the chip refers to the 16th week of 2020, which indicates that the chip was produced in April. < p > < p > in August, TSMC introduced the performance and power improvement of 5nm manufacturing process in detail. Compared with the N7 process for A13, N5 claims to provide 15% performance improvement at the same energy consumption, or a 30% increase in power efficiency while maintaining the same performance level. < / P > < p > it is generally believed that the camera system on the iPhone 12 is relatively similar to that provided in the iPhone 11 series, where the non pro series has two cameras and the Pro Series has three cameras. < / P > < p > for the iPhone 12, it will consist of a 12 megapixel wide-angle lens and a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle lens, while the iPhone 12 Pro Series will also have multiple telephoto shots. All of these will benefit from the higher performance of the software and A14, bringing about improvements in photography. Its recorded screen snapshot can be set to < 120 FPS >, which can indicate that the video can be published in the format of < 2408. In the same leak, the switch of "enhanced night mode", "zoom function", "bit depth video" and "advanced noise reduction" is also mentioned. < / P > < p > back in March, famous analyst guomingqi said the camera array in the iPhone 12 had 7p lenses instead of 6p lenses. Used to improve the optical performance of photos and videos. < p > < p > it has been reported that Apple will use the concept of iPad pro to add lidar lidar system to the iPhone pro. Lidar scanners can produce depth maps, which can help iPad create more detailed image depth maps. < / P > < p > Apple plans some additional features for lidar in the iPhone, which may improve the photography. The front truedepth camera array uses a depth map as part of its portrait mode, and a depth map on the back may be used as an aid. The original frame of the < gepth > is installed on the top of the original gepth >, so that the original image can be displayed on the top of the original gepth < 9-year-old iPhone. Geskin's image echoes another letter from MIG Chi Kuo in July, claiming that the bangs will be reduced in size or completely removed. < / P > < p > in April, from twitter leaker “choco”_ The “bit” image shows that the gap may be much smaller, but it does not disappear completely. Other images of Jon Prosser for the month include a CAD drawing that also shows smaller gaps. < / P > < p > it is widely believed that one of the significant changes in the iPhone 12 series, which will be launched this year, is the support for 5g mobile networks. Apple and Qualcomm have signed an agreement to solve the problem of lack of 5g chip capability, but the main problem is the implementation of 5g in the new machine. < / P > < p > because 5g currently has two main technical standards, namely sub-6ghz and mmwave millimeter wave technology, the former has a strong and wide coverage, while the high-speed connection with the latter may be weak. Analysts at JP Morgan said in December that all models will support 5g below 6GHz, but only the top-level versions will support mmwave. < / P > < p > to offset the cost of 5g components, trendforce speculates that Apple will offer new models with fewer accessories to reduce costs. This is the controversial news that Apple will cancel the charging head and headset. < / P > < p > in April, a blogger source said a tougher side was used, with stainless steel edges instead of the current camber. The design will echo the design of iPhone 4 or 5. < / P > < p > this is probably the most noticed place, and the most obvious change of iPhone in recent years, which makes MAC otakara and other media make a new model. There are even many third-party manufacturers that have shown the iPhone 12 case in advance. < / P > < p > the iPhone 12 Pro Series is thought to have more memory, which will reach 6GB. Non pro storage will also increase, adding 512gb options over 128GB and 256gb. < / P > < p > there are reports that Apple may move from the iPhone line to usb-c this year, although it has been suggested that this may happen in 2021 instead of 2020 – and we don’t think we will use usb-c this year. < / P > < p > finally, in order to help people use wireless charging properly, Apple may include magnets on the back of the case to help more easily attach the iPhone to the charging position, as is now the apple watch /. The report shows that the number of app store purchases soared in the first half of this year due to the impact of covid-19
