At a special event later, Apple is expected to finally unveil the iPhone 12 and a handful of other products. In its September event, the company showed off a range of new gadgets, including Apple Watches and iPads, but did not release a new iPhone for the first time in years. Today’s launch, like last month’s reveal and June’s Apple developer conference, is being held online and will be broadcast at 6 pm UK time. With Sky News, you can track it live, but here’s what to expect. In the iPhone 12 series, the firm is expected to unveil four devices in three different sizes.
For the first time, they are rumored to include super-fast 5 G wireless connectivity, with the models going on sale on October 23rd.
It is predicted that the smallest computer will have a 5.4-inch screen, two will weigh 6.1 inches, and the largest will have a mammoth 6.7-inch display.
Higher-end devices with the latest technology, potentially called the iPhone 12 Pro range, are expected to be the largest version and one of the 6.1-inch models.
They are expected to retain the triple-lens housing that debuted with the iPhone 11 Pro, while the rear will have a dual-lens set-up for the standard and smaller models.
What the smaller iPhone 12 will be named is not obvious, although there have been rumors that it might be named the iPhone 12 mini.
To distinguish the devices from the iPhone 11 range, Apple is rumored to have introduced a distinctive metal frame, reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and the newest iPad Pro models.
The design is intended to fit with the iPad Pro, with the frame offering a square-edged look to the unit-although these features appear to be covered by a case for most individuals.
It was also speculated that the iPhone 12 would be offered without the box’s headphones, charger or plug adapter.
It is rumored that the best features are packed into the 6.7-inch unit, including a rear camera system that uses lasers to measure depth data, opening up a variety of new photography and features of augmented reality.
Apple is also rumored to be working on over-the-ear headphones, possibly named AirPods Studio, to add to the AirPods family, but leaks on Chinese social media say they will not appear in today’s case.
“The main invitation to the event on Tuesday also has the word,” Hello, Pace.
This suggests that the company will make a big deal out of the addition of Apple Silicon-or its in-house produced computer chips-as it did for the A14 Bionic, available on the iPad Air 4 in September.
“The chip was described with transistors so tiny they” challenge the laws of physics “with around 11.8 billion on a single chip as” by far the most advanced we’ve ever made.
Apple said, “We’re talking about a scale so small that it’s measured in atoms.”
In any product line other than the iPhone, this is the first time such a chip has been revealed, likely due to the delayed release date the company warned investors about earlier this year.
Apple says the iPad Air 4 is three times faster and six times faster than the top-selling Chrome book than the top-selling Android tablet.
We’re going to have to wait to see what the iPhone 12 comparisons Apple makes.
Look out also for perhaps the most novel addition to the line-up of the company-Apple Air Tags-close to the Bluetooth trackers from Tile.
It is possible to connect these to a keyring or other products and find them using an app.
The concept of an augmented reality tracker is especially exciting, which would allow users to open their iPhone and receive an overlay of where the tag is located.
For the age-old issue of not knowing where you left your keys, it would be particularly useful.
But even if the tag was left farther away, there are suggestions that other iPhones might locate it through Apple’s “Find Mine” app mesh network.
