Apple may be planning a big change to its iPhone launches after the iPhone 12

  Apple may be planning a big change to its iPhone launches after the iPhone 12 Apple may be planning a major shakeup of its normal iPhone release schedule, according to a JP Morgan analyst who predicts the company will soon start introducing new models twice a year instead of once, in the fall. That analyst, Samik Chatterjee, is out with a new report which forecasts that after Apple launches four new iPhone models next year -- including a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models, and a 6.7-inch iPhone -- Apple will switch to aThat analyst, Samik Chatterjee, is out with a new report which forecasts that after Apple launches four new iPhone models next year — including a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models, and a 6.7-inch iPhone — Apple will switch to a spring and fall release schedule starting in 2021.

Purchasing a new iPhone is far more complicated than it used to be. Back in the day, Apple would release a single new model and users simply had to decide what color they liked and how much storage they wanted. Over time, though, the number of iPhone options to choose from has ballooned. This year, for example, Apple released three new iPhone models with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Max.

Looking ahead to next year, Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup may be the most expansive we’ve seen yet. According to a new research report from Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang (via AppleInsider), Apple next year might release six distinct iPhone 12 models. Zhang’s report is at odds with previous iPhone 12 rumors we’ve seen, but seeing as we’re still a good nine months away from the official iPhone 12 release, it’s too early to make a call in either direction.

The world’s top Apple insider says iPhone 12 is one of five new iPhone models coming in 2020

  The world’s top Apple insider says iPhone 12 is one of five new iPhone models coming in 2020 We're still a long way off from the release of Apple's 2020 iPhone lineup, but that doesn't mean the iPhone-maker's plans for next year aren't already coming into focus -- and, if the top Apple insider in the world is right with his latest predictions, it seems that 2020 (and beyond) is shaping up to mark the start of a significant new chapter for Apple's most important product. Following up on the news we reported here, about Apple planning to switch up its iPhone releases to both a spring and fall schedule (instead of the usual once-a-year release) after next year’s releases, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with TF International Securities is out with a new report toda

As to why Apple would release six iPhone 12 models next year, it all comes down to 5G. According to Zhang, most iPhone 12 models will come in two variants — one with 4G and one with 5G. It sounds a bit far fetched at first glance, but might actually make sense given that 5G coverage still isn’t anywhere close to being all-encompassing.

Sprint’s 5G coverage, for example, only includes 9 U.S. cities at the moment. Suffice it to say, many consumers will not be happy about paying a premium for 5G when they can’t take advantage of it.

That said, Zhang anticipates that Apple’s new iPhone 12 lineup will look like this:

Top Apple insider: Next year’s 5G iPhones won’t see a big price increase

  Top Apple insider: Next year’s 5G iPhones won’t see a big price increase We're still almost a year out from the release of Apple's next iPhone models, and already the 2020 iPhone 12 lineup is shaping up to be the most expansive that Apple has offered yet. Coming on the heels of the release of three new models in 2019, one report has already hinted that Apple might release as many as six distinct iPhone 12 models next year. The reason why that's the case can be boiled down to one thing: 5G. That's according toThe reason why that’s the case can be boiled down to one thing: 5G.

Rumors about Apple 's upcoming 2020 iPhones, which could be called the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. All iPhones in 2020 are expected to feature OLED displays regardless of price. At a rumored 5.4 inches Apple is expected to release the 2020 iPhone 12 and 12 Pro models (names tentative)

The Apple iPhone 12 models are reported to be coming with an entirely new design, according to rumours. It's not yet clear what the design might be 18 June 2019: Apple iPhone XS Max could get even bigger in 2020 , analyst suggests. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said Apple will announce

iPhone 12 4G with a 6.1-inch LCD screen and dual rear cameras

iPhone 12 Pro 4G with a 5.4-inch OLED screen and dual rear cameras

iPhone 12 Pro 5G with a 5.4-inch OLED display and dual rear cameras

iPhone 12 Pro Plus 4G with a 6.1-inch OLED display and a triple rear camera with Time-of-Flight 3D sensing capabilities

iPhone 12 Pro Plus 5G using a 6.1-inch OLED screen, triple camera setup, and ToF features

iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G with a 6.1-inch OLED panel, the triple camera setup, and ToF.

This is beyond confusing, and it’s hard to imagine Apple’s iPhone 12 release schedule actually mirroring what’s listed above. Still, there is reason to believe that Apple’s iPhone lineup will be more wide-ranging than ever before. Noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last week issued a research note claiming that Apple will release four distinct iPhone 12 models. In contrast to Zhang, however, Kuo notes that all iPhone 12 models will boast support for 5G.

All in all, it’s starting to look like Apple’s iPhone lineup next year will be its most ambitious yet. In addition to as many as 5 or 6 new iPhone 12 models, there’s a strong possibility Apple will release a successor to the iPhone SE this March, though the device will reportedly be called the iPhone 9. Incidentally, the rumored iPhone 9 — as a budget-positioned device — will only offer support for 4G.
