New report cites one reason in particular that Apple’s iPhone will have a truly exciting year in 2020

  New report cites one reason in particular that Apple’s iPhone will have a truly exciting year in 2020 Even though we're still almost a year away from the release of Apple's next iPhone lineup, details about the 2020 iPhone 12 lineup are already piling up -- such as the fact that next year's lineup looks to be the most expansive one that Apple has offered yet. One simple reason: 5G. “We believe iPhone 11 is just the front end of this current ‘supercycle’ for Cupertino with a slate of 5G smartphones set to be unveiled in September that will open up the floodgates on iPhone upgrades across the board that the Street continues to underestimate,” write the Wedbush analysts.

At this point, the PS 5 launch is deemed impending. Multiple analysts have chipped in with what they expect the PS 5 to be like, and when they think According to him, the PS 5 will be a high end console, capable of running AAA games, and that it in fact will launch with multiple of those to push sales at

How advanced will PS 5 be as compared to PS 4 ? A safe bet would be 5 years for the last of the Playstation 4 games, based off of the PS3’s lifespan. I imagine the same will happen when the PS 5 will come out as Sony has to get kits to the developers so they can program new games for the PS 5 .

Sony's PS5 is set to launch in the 'Holiday 2020' window alongside Microsoft's Xbox Series X, and according to an industry analyst, the next gen console will fly off the shelves - although the predicted numbers put it slightly behind the PS4's release window sales.

Hideki Yasuda, from Japanese analytical firm Ace Research Institute, has weighed in on the upcoming console launch, saying that he expects it to ship 6 million units by the end of March, 2021. Shipped units don't equal console sales, which are typically lower given that those units then have to be sold. But if that's the case, the PS5 will be lagging behind the PS4 from the get go.

Between PS 4 and PS 4 Pro, Apple has released three new iPhones (across two generations: 6, 6S and 7), and Samsung has released three new Galaxy S phones (S5, S6, S7). For people saying the pS 4 games are going to work on PS 5 keep dreaming. Now GTS on PS 4 when PS 5 is about to release.

The PS4 came to market in November 2013 and sold 4.5 million units by the end of December (Q3 2013). By the end of March - the fourth quarter of FY 2013 - it had sold another 3 million, bringing the total sales for FY 2013 to 7.5 million units. The console has done incredibly well ever since, with total sales exceeding 106 million as of December last year.

a bird sitting on top of a grass covered field:                                          PS5 games are almost here. Sure, you may not be able to play them yet, but with a confirmed release window for the next-gen PlayStation console – end of 2020 – and specifications for the PS5 starting to drop, it's no surprise to see developers start announcing titles for the hardware.                                                                                                                                                         There aren't many confirmed PS5 games so far, and we don't know the PS5's launch titles quite yet, but they're slowly trickling in and we're expecting to see developers announce even more in the coming months.                                                                                                                                                         So what games are we expecting to see on the PlayStation 5? Well, we've gathered together this handy guide to all the PS5 games that have been confirmed so far – and some that we expect to see.

If the PS5 is predicted to ship 6 million units in the same window of time for it own launch, it's going to fall short of its predecessors success. The PS4 is now the second best-selling console of all time, behind the PS2 with its lifetime sales of 155 million units. 

We're not worried that Sony will have another PS3 situation on its hands -  a console which got off to a rocky start and only managed to sell 87.4 million units during its lifecycle  - but Ace Research Institute believes that the design of a console can have a measurable impact on its success, which is also dictated by the price. The price of the PS5 has yet to be confirmed, as is the new design, so it makes it difficult to predict sales in the absence of those factors.

a group of people standing in front of a crowd:           Sony and Microsoft are working on the next versions of      the PlayStation      and the Xbox:      The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, respectively.              Both new consoles are expected to arrive in the the      2020 holiday shopping season.              Despite both consoles being months from launch, we know      a surprising amount of confirmed information about the new      consoles thanks to Sony and Microsoft.                      Visit      Business Insider's homepage for more stories.          It's true: By this holiday season, a new PlayStation and a new    Xbox will have launched.      For those of you keeping score at home, that's the fifth    PlayStation and fourth Xbox generation. As such,     Sony's next PlayStation is called PlayStation 5. Microsoft's    next Xbox's name is a bit less straightforward -     it's called Xbox Series X.      Though neither has gotten the full showcase treatment just yet,    both Sony and Microsoft have detailed the consoles with a    surprising amount of specificity. As such, we've broken down the    similarities and differences below - here's how the two consoles    stack up:

We've already heard reports of a possible delayed PS5 and Xbox Series X launch   and Nintendo has confirmed that its experiencing its own supply issues with the Switch. Even mobile manufacturers like Apple have warned of iPhone shortages as  a result of the virus. Neither Sony nor Microsoft have confirmed to what extent their own supply line has been affected, but we find it hard to believe that there's been no fallout at all. 

Taking that into account, the PS5's shipped units could be much lower if it misses out on that all-important holiday window, when big ticket items are bought with gay abandon in the run up to Christmas. Those Q4 sales could see the PS5 off to an iffy start, and if Sony doesn't get the balance right on the price front, it may have a disaster on its hands.
