Apple iPhone 12 buyers may need to spend $ 63 to replace missing EarPods and charging brick
Kuo says this 20W Apple charger is real, but will not be included in the iPhone 12 case
All iPhone 12 models are expected to run on the Bionic A14 chipset produced by TSMC using its 5nm process. That simply means that more transistors can fit inside. The A14 Bionic will employ 15 billion transistors compared to the 8.5 billion used by the A13 Bionic; The more transistors within a chip, the more powerful and efficient it is. The new standard models will be equipped with 4GB of memory compared to 6GB of RAM in Pro units. The new iPhone 12 phones should start with 128GB of storage, double the basic amount of storage available in the basic variants of 2019.
As for the rear camera module, there is some controversy based on a leaked CAD image. While all iPhone 12 units are expected to have wide and ultra-wide cameras, Pro models will add a 3x zoom telephoto camera. Latest models should include the LiDAR time of flight depth sensor first seen on iPad 2020 tablets. The sensor will offer improved AR capabilities and improved portrait photography. The question is whether the LiDAR sensor will also be found in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Plus. Most believe that the CAD image, made for box makers, contained enough information for those companies, making the image incomplete.
We also expect Apple to increase battery capacity for upcoming models. That’s not only due to 5G support, but also to the ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate for iPhone 12 Pro phones. This means those phones will refresh their displays 120 times per second. The iPhone 12 Pro Max could have a 4400 mAh battery compared to the 3969 mAh capacity on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Next-generation iPhone models could be unveiled in September, as usual, the coronavirus outbreak could force Apple to delay the launch of its new phones.
