Apple’s next camera innovation for the iPhone 12 supposedly leaked

  Apple’s next camera innovation for the iPhone 12 supposedly leaked Two things are always certain about the next iPhone version, as soon as Apple’s iPhone press conference ends in September. The model that will launch next year will have a much faster processor and an upgraded camera experience. You don’t need any leaks for that, it’s just the way Apple moves, and the entire industry with it. The iPhone 11 packs a processor that has no rival in the business, and a camera system that’s among the best mobile cameras out there. The iPhone 12, meanwhile, is expected to feature a faster A14 CPU as well as several camera improvements. But as we get closer to the next iPhone’s launch, we start seeing more and more reports about it.

A new investor note from reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo ( via MacRumors ) sheds a lot of light on some of Apple 's upcoming product plans. First and foremost, and not at all surprising, Kuo relays that Apple will rely on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC)

Given some of the limitations of the trashcan Mac Pro, Apple in recent years conceded that the design itself may not have been as forward-thinking as the In light of that, Apple ’s Phil Schiller in 2017 said that Apple isn’t going to rush things with its next-gen Mac Pro in an effort to nail every single aspect of

Truth be told, it’s probably a bit too soon to start speculating — with any type of authority — as to what type of hardware Apple’s iPhone 12 will ship with. Aside from the obvious — we know the iPhone 12 will boast a 5G modem and an A14 processor — much of the iPhone 12’s feature set remains up for debate.

To this point, a report from earlier in the week relayed that Apple recently stopped sending engineers to China to participate in Engineering Validation Tests (EVT) on account of the coronavirus. Notably, EVT is one rung below Design Validation Testing (DVT) which is where Apple locks down the iPhone 12’s hardware and feature set.

Apple reportedly launching two iPhone 9 models in 2020 to replace the iPhone SE

  Apple reportedly launching two iPhone 9 models in 2020 to replace the iPhone SE As busy as Apple was in 2019, 2020 might be even busier, as a new DigiTimes report claims that Apple is working on two new iPhone models to replace the iPhone SE, both of which will reportedly be branded as "iPhone 9." We've been reporting on the potential of an iPhone SE 2 for months now, but since the phone will likely feature a similar design to that of the iPhone 8, it would certainly make sense for Apple to use the number it skipped. "Apple“Apple is likely to launch as many as six iPhone devices in 2020 – four OLED models and two LCD ones, according to sources at Taiwan’s handset supply chain,” reads the report from DigiTimes (via 9to5Mac).

On Monday, iOS 12 will arrive for iPhones and iPads. Apple announced the upgrade to its mobile operating Here some of the most exciting new features included in iOS 12 Apple Books has been redesigned in iOS 12 to include a new "Book Store" tab with top charts and curated collections.

With iOS 12 , Apple is bringing another exclusive feature to iPhone X owners: personalized animated emojis that Apple calls Memoji. Screen Time lets you set time limits for social-media apps, see a breakdown of how you're spending your time on your phone, and schedule some screen downtime.

Having said all that, Ming-Chi Kuo is the one analyst who seemingly has his finger on the pulse of Apple’s product roadmap. Whereas most analysts are seemingly guessing what Apple might do, Kuo’s track record with respect to Apple rumors is unrivaled.

In light of that, it’s worth noting that a new research note from Kuo — originally seen by Cult of Mac — claims that Apple’s iPhone 12 will not support 2×2 MIMO uplink as previously anticipated. In practical terms, this means that upload speeds on the iPhone 12 may not be as fast as initially believed.

“Kuo previously suggested that the 5G iPhone 12 would support 2×2 MIMO uplink, potentially meaning slightly faster maximum uploads,” the report reads. “People shouldn’t necessarily take this as a bad sign, though. 5G rollouts are still new, meaning that it’s not yet clear how significant this 2×2 uplink would be.”

New iPhone 12 : Everything we know about Apple ’s 2020 iPhones. iPhone 12 : What to expect. Four iPhone 12 models coming this fall, after the iPhone SE 2 comes out this spring. All new iPhones could feature OLED screens, with some models offer faster 120Hz refresh rates.

That aside, it will be interesting to see how 5G impacts Apple’s refresh cycle. While the allure of 5G is substantial, nationwide coverage still has a ways to go. As a result, it remains to be seen if 5G will be enough to compel current iPhone owners to upgrade a year or two ahead of schedule.

On a related note, it’s widely believed that all of Apple’s iPhone 12 models will boast 5G chips with sub-6GHz and mmWave support.
