Apple may be working on a new, lower-cost iPhone SE 2 with some of the same features as the current iPhone 11 , such as the A13 Bionic chip. In this week's Apple Core roundup, we take a look at the latest rumors about the spiritual successor to the iPhone SE and dissect a new patent that shows a new Apple smart ring concept.

Welcome back, iPhone SE

Today's phones seem big and bulky compared to the compact iPhone SE that first made its debut back in 2016. Looking just like the iPhone 4 and 5 that came before it, the iPhone SE packed many key iPhone features like Apple Pay (and a headphone jack) in a smaller handset. Plus, it was cheap. 

Is this the iPhone 12 Pro of our dreams?

  Is this the iPhone 12 Pro of our dreams? Love Apple or hate it, there's still no question that the company's iPhone lineup generates more buzz than any other smartphone series. Samsung’s flagship phones come closer than ever thanks to the company’s multi-billion dollar marketing and advertising campaigns that helped it make good on an impossible promise, but the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max are still in a league of their own.

It could also have a single rear camera, rather than the same dual-camera design that 's on the iPhone 11. Colors could be simpler than the iPhone 11 with space gray, silver and red. None of these internals are new to Apple phones, which is exactly the point: This could keep the cost lower than the.

He believes that the SE 2 "will likely increase iPhone 's market share and benefit Apple's promotions for service and content. We expect that iPhone In April 2019 Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis suggested that a new iPhone with a smaller screen could be coming in 2020. This was according to "a few

Long-time Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says there could be a new iPhone SE 2 on the way for release in the first quarter of 2020. Kuo says it will look more like the iPhone 8, rather than share the square, machined design of the original iPhone SE.

That means the new phone would potentially have a 4.7-inch display (bigger than the original iPhone SE's 4-inch screen) and a home button, but no FaceID. It could also have a single rear camera, rather than the same dual-camera design that's on the iPhone 11.

As for internals, Kuo predicts the phone will use the latest A13 Bionic chip with 3GB of RAM, plus a 64GB or 128GB storage option. Colors could be simpler than the iPhone 11 with space gray, silver and red.

Apple rolls out iOS 13.2 public beta 3

  Apple rolls out iOS 13.2 public beta 3 Just over a day after Apple seeded iOS 13.1.3 and iPadOS 13.1.3 to everyone who isn't part of Apple's beta program, the beta crowd has received an update of its own. The third beta releases for both iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 rolled out on Wednesday, and as of right now, the public beta is available to everyone as well. The headlining feature of iOS 13.2 is, of course, the Deep Fusion camera technology that makes medium-light photos look sharper than ever before, but you can also get your hands on a selection of new emojis if you download the new beta.

The latest report suggests the iPhone SE 2 could have a 4.7-inch LCD screen. But other than that it will apparently use many of the same components as There's still a market out there for people who want an iPhone that sits comfortably in the palm, can be used one-handed without inducing a drop

indication that an iPhone SE 2 , if it is on Apple’s product roadmap, will sport the same edge-to-edge display ushered in by the iPhone X. If anything, it as we can only hope Apple remembers that not everyone enjoys using gargantuan phones that can be downright frustrating to use with only one hand.

None of these internals are new to Apple phones, which is exactly the point: This could keep the cost lower than the current iPhone 8, which is the cheapest "new" iPhone, at US$449. An iPhone that hits the magic US$399 price also could help compete with less-expensive Android phones like the Pixel 3A and entice those upgrading from older phones, such as the iPhone 6 , to stick with the iPhone when it's time to upgrade. The iPhone 6 and older won't receive updates to iOS 13.

For countries outside the US such as India, having a less-expensive iPhone is crucial. In figures released by analytics firm Counterpoint Research, in the first quarter of 2018 only 4% of the market in India was made up of so-called premium phones -- phones with a price over US$450. It makes sense to have a lower-cost phone to help compete with other Android offerings like the OnePlus 7T and Samsung Galaxy A50.

Huge leak says next year’s iPhone 12 will be Apple’s most massive design overhaul in a decade

  Huge leak says next year’s iPhone 12 will be Apple’s most massive design overhaul in a decade While the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro feature substantial upgrades in terms of specifications and battery life, the design of the phones is virtually unchanged from that of the iPhone X and iPhone XS. Just as it did with the iPhone 6, Apple has focused on internal upgrades rather than external ones over the past three years, but all signs are pointing to next year’s iPhone being the complete overhaul many Apple fans have been waiting for.

The iPhone 11 comes in a 256GB model. At 9, £879 and AU,449 it 's more expensive, but if you take a lot of photos and shoot a lot of videos, the extra onboard storage will come in handy -- especially if you don't really use cloud • iPhone SE 2 is coming , and it could be huge ( but also kinda small ).

The original iPhone SE released back in 2016 and was placed on a pedestal by a subsection of people that appreciated having a smaller smartphone. Moreover, it seems the device could also be a mainline flagship rather than one sold beside Apple's other handsets.

Apple may be working on … a smart ring?

Add a smart ring to the list of rumored Apple devices that have yet to see the light of day (such as the AR glasses or the Bluetooth tracker). 

This week, Apple Insider discovered a patent showing a ring that could potentially offer a lot of what the Apple Watch does, but on your finger. This was originally filed back in 2015, but was only recently granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

The diagram in the patent shows the ring could have a touchscreen, processor, wireless transceiver, microphone and sensors to detect hand gestures. Some of those gestures include swiping or flicking to adjust menu settings and pointing to open a link.

A smart ring may have felt like science fiction in 2015 when this patent was originally filed, but fast-forward to 2019 and it doesn't seem all that far-fetched. The $130 Amazon Echo Loop, announced a few weeks ago, has a microphone so you can talk to your assistant, a tiny speaker, plus an action button.

The iPhone SE is set for a comeback.
