Apple could change the design of the iPhone 12 in 2020 and surprise us with a new but familiar look. We've all come up with rumors about the design and features of the next iPhone, including an array of four cameras. At this week's Apple Core Roundup, we're also catching up on the latest rumors about Apple's AR glasses and finding out why Apple TV Plus is making waves.
What will the iPhone 2020 look like?
The iPhone 1
Let's summarize some of the basics of the previous rumors: 5G support, 120 Hz refresh rate, a time-of-flight camera and a new design. Long-time Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said that Apple may reduce the screen size of the 2020 version of the iPhone 11 Pro . Instead of the 5.8-inch screen, it would now be 5.4 inches.
PhoneArena has amassed many rumors about interesting presentations that show the concept of the website what the iPhone 12 might look like.
You'll find that the rounded corners that we know from today's iPhones are almost gone. Instead, the design may be more like the iPhone 4 and 5 from earlier years. These flat edges and sharper lines are reminiscent of the older design. It would come as no surprise if Apple decided to return to this aesthetic, especially given the redesigned iPad Pro from 2018.
After switching to the array of three cameras at this year's iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max Apple can add a . Some other phones like the Galaxy Note 10 Plus have this camera to capture depth information. This could do a lot of things like help with AR mapping, but could also mean that we finally have the option to use portrait in videos.
However, these illustrations show an array of four cameras, with all lenses (including the time of flight camera) being the same size. Given the examples we've seen from other phone manufacturers like the Huawei P30 Pro, this fourth camera is likely to be smaller.
Apple + Valve = AR Glasses
We first reported that Apple is working on some type of camera from AR headsets or glasses in 2018.
Originally it was assumed that the glasses had 8K displays and are both AR- and VR-compatible, without the need for external tracking and positioning sensors. Other rumors, however, predicted that the goggles would be tethered closer to the iPhone and serve as the main brain to superimpose texts, games, maps, and more on your field of vision.
A few weeks ago, we heard rumors that Apple would partner with another company to bring the technology to market. This week, DigiTimes reports on MacRumors that Apple is working with game developer Valve.
Valve has already released its own VR headset calledwhich was released earlier this year. Apple and Valve have previously worked together to provide 2017
The market for smart glasses and headsets is growing. Analyst firm CCS Insights predicts that by 2023, 75 million VR and AR devices will be delivered.
Apple TV Plus Starts With Some Surprises
Apple TV Plus has arrived on many different platforms, including iOS, Apple TV, the Internet and even some Fire TV and Roku devices, last week. While it can not compete with Netflix, Prime, Hulu and, of course, Disney Plus for the catalog, there may be some other tricks in sight. For starters, it's free for the first year if you've purchased a legitimate Apple device.
Broadcasts on Apple TV Plus also offer the highest quality of all streaming services in 4K, according to a forum post reported by 9to5Mac. Shows like See have an average speed of 29 Mbps when streaming over an Apple TV 4K box and a maximum speed of 41 Mbps.
Apple TV Plus automatically adjusts streaming quality based on bandwidth. However, unlike Netflix, streaming can not be manually selected. Rate for now.
