iPhone 12: Latest leaks and news

There are a lot of interesting rumors about the iPhone so we have combined all the possible information regrading the iphone 12, so let’s get into it together.

Different Variants Of iphone 12

Well, some analysts have suggested there will be four iPhone 12 models: one 5.4-inch phone, two 6.1-inch devices and one 6.7-inch model.

In fact, this means that there can be two standard iPhone 12 devices: one regular and one max. And plus for these two models there will still be Pro versions, which is similar to what we have today.
It’s entirely possible, but slightly confusing, more likely Apple will follow its current strategy and release three iPhone 12s.
One “entry-level” version and two Pro models: one regular size and the other max.

Given that the iPhone SE has just been released as a  “budget” device, for Apple it would be a strange step to take their own handset and confuse the market by releasing another small iPhone 12. Especially if it is in the current design.
Despite this, about 4 models this is not fiction, there is more and more evidence that there will be exactly four models. All that remains for us is to wait and find out soon.

What is the release date of iPhone 12?

It’s hard to say at the moment when Apple will schedule an event with the announcement of new iPhones. This usually happens in September, but as you probably noticed, we are in the midst of a global pandemic.


According to recent reports, Apple has a supply problem, which may cause the launch of the iPhone 12 to be delayed for 1 or 2 months.

Design of iPhone 12

One of the most interesting rumors about the iPhone 12 is that we will see big changes in its design.
Some of the latest renders and leaks from Max Weinbah and EverythingApplepro seem to have confirmed that Apple is trying to bring the iPhone 4 design back to its new flagships. Essentially, this means a design with sharper edges.

Honestly, the iPhone needs aesthetic processing, so this will be a positive step, because to this day iPhone 4 is an absolute beauty.
Regarding the notch it’s not going anywhere. Personally, I hate how the screen looks with it. Even though this is a feature of the iPhone brand, that there are a lot of useful sensors and more. It just looks crap.
But according to rumors, the thing worth counting on is a decrease in the size of the notch, although this has not been fully confirmed.

How will be the camera in iPhone 12 ?

The number of cameras is expected to remain unchanged, but they are likely to receive a megapixel increase. This means that the regular iPhone 12 will remain with two cameras, while the Pro will have three.

In addition, Apple is constantly working on its image processing software, which is why we will also see some improvements in photography and video.


However, the biggest potential change is the introduction of a depth measurement sensor or LIDAR.
The technology uses an artificial ray of light and tracks its reflection back to the lens – thus creating a three-dimensional map of the area.
From the LIDAR sensor, the iPhone will receive two great advantages: firstly, an improved photo, since the iPhone will be able to separate the background from the foreground with greater accuracy. Things like portrait modes will get a lot better.
The second is AR, virtual reality. The possibility of an accurate three-dimensional map of the terrain will make the augmented reality experience more realistic and exciting – so we should expect that Apple will continue to work in this virtual direction in the near future.

Screen quality of iPhone 12

According to rumors, this time all iPhone 12 models will have OLED screens – only Pro devices currently have this technology.

Some analysts expect Apple to present displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz on Pro models. Currently, all Apple phones have 60 Hz displays.
This, incidentally, is a good move if the company has a goal in distinguishing ordinary models from Pro models.

Apple A14 bionic chip

It seems that the iPhone 12 is going to become significantly more powerful than its predecessors. A leak from the benchmark of the upcoming A14 chip – the processor that will be used in the new models, shows impressive results. Of course, it surpasses the current flagship chip for Android devices Snapdragon 865.

Without going into details, the A14 will be the fastest chip in the phone and give the iPhone a better performance than the current 12.9-inch iPad.
But what will Apple do with this extra power? Well, as I mentioned earlier, Apple may begin to focus on AR.
But, frankly, all of the company’s previous attempts to turn virtual reality to at least some public attention were unsuccessful. So far, people are simply not interested.
It is clear that the processor will work even better with photos and videos, but still such power seems even excessive today on a smartphone. But let’s see if they can find great use for it.

Expected Cost Of the upcoming iPhones ?

Of course, most importantly, how much will the new iPhone cost?
Well, we also have information about this. John Prosser, who recently began to specialize in Apple leaks, announced the following rates:

  • iPhone 12 Mini (5.4-inch) – $ 650
  • iPhone 12 (6.1-inch) – $ 750
  • iPhone 12 Pro (6.1-inch) – $ 1,000
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7-inch) – $ 1,100

Yes, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will cost the same as the equivalent 11 Pro models, despite the addition of large screens and improved cameras.
The iPhone 12 may be a little more expensive than the iPhone 11.

In dollars, these prices look more than adequate, but I think in INR or other currencies it will cost 50% percent to the price in US$
So that is all! These are all rumors about the latest iPhone that float in space. As soon as something else appears – I will definitely let you know. 


But I would advise you to think this way: if they release a new iPhone this year, then it will be very good. Because it cannot be ruled out that they will appear even next year.
