The iPhone SE 2020 was launched in April as the first affordable Apple smartphone since the iPhone 8. But the rumors suggest that Apple is working on another affordable smartphone this year - named as iPhone SE plus. You can watch the Apple event on Apple TV or the official YouTube channel. This shouldn't come as surprise if the event doesn't showcase this phone. As the event is only a few hours away, we can see what the rumors have stored for us. Rumors suggest that the phone is still in the process and consumers may not be able to hold hands on it till the half of 2021. The phone inherited its hardware from the iPhone 8, including its 4.7-inch LCD at 1334 x 750 resolution.
The device can pull off the depth in the image using software algorithms making photography with the iPhone an amazing experience. While the iPhone SE 2020 has the leading A13 bionic processing chip, its older camera technology keeps it from capturing the night mode photos taken on the new flagships. The phone has the same thick top and bottom bezels as the older models which are too much according to new designs. The iPhone 8 plus uses a 2,691mAh battery that was certainly larger than the iPhone 8. But that is almost a 3-year-old smartphone. We can expect a better battery with a higher storage capacity with 18w fast charging.
Another leak is about a 3.5mm jack which is not necessarily true but we can hope to see it as it has the same physical dimensions as iPhone 8. One of the major differences between the iPhone 8 and 8 plus was the extra rear camera lens, which was responsible for creating stereoscopic images that could be combined to create a more depth and shadow effect in the images. This enables the first portrait mode photos. Rumors suggest that the iPhone SE plus will have multiple rear cameras to produce more visually attractive images using two or more lenses. Although we haven't heard much about its price, we can guess $399 for the starting price, which is lower than the latest official price of the iPhone 8 before it was discontinued.
Apple has finally announced the date for the Apple event - which is oct 13. Unlike other years, Apple events are going to be completely online and you can watch it on Apple Tv or Apple's official YouTube channel. If rumors are true, we will see a new 6.7-inch display screen size, a rapidly fast A14 Bionic chip, and 5G. Some rumors suggest that the prices of Apple 12 might be slightly less than its predecessor.
One of the biggest rumors around the internet is that the device will be available in more than one size. There will be possibly 2 base models at 6.1-inches and the largest iPhone 12 pro max at 6.7-inches. This allows Apple to offer a wide array of prices, and variations on the specs depending on the user's budget. There will be an affordable iPhone mini with a price tag as little as $649 with 64GB of internal storage which is at least $50 less than the regular iPhone 11's price. Offering an affordable smartphone to compete in the budget category seems like a smart move by the company.
In total we are expecting four new models this year. Two regular models and two pro models. Current rumors suggest the series to have iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 pro, and iPhone 12 pro max. With the possible addition of 5G connectivity support, Apple is moving the entire series to the OLED display. The October 13 event is called the ‘Hi speed' event. Pre-orders are assumed to be start on oct 16, whereas the shipments for regular models start from Oct 23 whereas the pro models will be launching up to a month later. There are also rumors of Apple using the Face ID sensor array in the smaller housing.
The new iPhone 12 hasn't been announced yet but we are expecting it really soon. That's just a rumor for now, but we might expect to see it in an event on October 13. The rumors suggest that there will be iPhone 12 max, iPhone 12 pro, and iPhone 12 pro max, with the entry-level iPhone 12 mini in the series. In such a case, you will have more choice than ever this year, especially with the iPhone SE that was launched in the beginning of this year. Apple's September 15 event focused on the Apple watch 6, iPad Air, a new iPad, and the Apple One subscription services.
Another report on the release date, which comes from "multiple suppliers in China", suggests that the iPhone 12 range won't be announced until late October, with the 4G models hitting stores shortly after, while the 5G iPhone 12 models won't go on sale until November. There are some clouds on the release date, but the most leaks suggest October 13 as the expected date.
We are expecting some big changes from Apple this year, including the 5G network support. With 5G networks rolling out in different regions of the world, the iPhone 12 will be more future-proof than its predecessor. The iPhone 12 series display will be starting from a tiny 5.4 inches to big 6.7 inches. The latest A14 Bionic processing chip will be another upgrade in power and will have a positive impact on the battery life too. For the price tag expect $649 / £700 / AU$1,200 or more.
A recent benchmark suggests that A14 Bionic single-core and multi-core performed better than the Snapdragon 865 that was used in almost all Android flagships in 2020. The overall score is also higher than the iPhone 11 pro max. That said, the scores are pretty good, and the iPhone 12 series is to be much faster than many existing flagship smartphones. The iPhone 12 series is also going to have a slight bump in the RAM area and might go from 4GB to 6GB though the standard phone might stick with 4GB. A few leaks suggest that iPhone 12 will not have a bigger number in battery and might rely on the processing chip for the speed. The phone will be using a lighting cable instead of USB-C.
Apple explicitly calls attention to that the Apple Watch Series 6 blood oxygen estimations are not to be utilized for clinical purposes. This implies you shouldn't depend on your Apple Watch to discover side effects of illnesses, at any rate not yet. Apple expresses that occasionally, for certain individuals, the Apple Watch probably won't get a dependable blood oxygen perusing, however Cupertino doesn't make any broad case about the dependability of the outcomes.
By and large, the blood oxygen estimations can be affected by components, for example, skin perfusion, which shows how much blood courses through your skin, a few tattoos, movement, certain places of your wrist or fingers, and a high resting pulse (over 150 bpm).
Generally, the blood oxygen estimation can give you a thought of your general wellbeing, yet you should be cautious and think about the estimations it does while taking other factors into consideration, as the Apple Watch Series 6 is anything but a clinical gadget.
Apple didn't announce this year's iPhone 12 at the Apple September event, but we are hopeful to have it unveiled in at least October. Apple's last event was focused on the Apple Watch, iPad Air 4, a new iPad, the Apple One Subscription services, and the launch of a new service series called Apple Fitness plus.
There are rumors that the company will launch as many as 3 iPhones called the iPhone 12 max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 pro max. There are also some rumors of having another name for the vanilla iPhone called the iPhone 12 Mini, and that we were previously thinking of like the iPhone 12 max. In any case, there could be more iPhone variations this time, especially with the iPhone SE 2020 that was launched earlier in the year.
We are expecting some major upgrades from Apple, including the first 5G iPhone. Last year the iPhone series didn't have support for 5G that made it less desirable for people living in the area with 5G support. Leaks and rumors suggest that the iPhone 12 Pro models will get a LiDAR scanner, just like the iPad Pro 2020, and we also heard about the new display sizes that range anywhere between 5.4-inches to 6.-inches.
The biggest change in the upcoming iPhone is power related. The iPhone 12 is using the A14 bionic chipset seen in the new iPad Air 2020 that will have a significant effect on battery life. The display is a super retina XDR OLED capacitive touchscreen with 1 billion colors and a 120Hz refresh rate. According to leaks, the phone uses a 12MP wide camera as the primary lens, a 12MP telephoto camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera lens, and a TOF 3D LiDAR scanner depth camera lens. You can shoot a 4k video up to 24, 30, and 60fps. The phone comes with Li-Ion non-removable battery with 18W fast charging. The new iPhone 12 series is available in matter space gray, matte silver, matte gold, matt midnight green, and matte blue colors.
