The iPhone 12 series has faced a wide variety of leaks in the past few weeks, from specs to production issues to live video of the phone. The latest in the growing list of leaks is a video showing the back of the iPhone 12 Pro with no internal hardware with new LiDAR sensor placement. Another leak also mentions that the iPhone 12 series went into mass production this week and, unfortunately, the rumored 120Hz refresh rate didn’t make the cut.
Starting with the back of the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, a short clip was shared on Twitter by a well-known tipster using the pseudonym EverythingApplePro, showing the placement of the LiDAR sensor, the flat sides, the smart connector, and various cutouts. The space for the wireless charging coil is also visible. The design seems to be similar to what Apple did with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, which were more boxy in shape. The triple camera setup shown in the video is similar to that of the iPhone 1
The SIM card tray appears to have moved to the right side of the phone. This leak suggests that Apple will be building the LiDAR sensor into both Pro models and not just the top-of-the-line iPhone 12 Pro Max as stated in previous leaks. However, a recent leak mentioned that both Pro models will be equipped with this feature.
In addition, well-known tipster Jon Prosser announced that the iPhone 12 models went into production this week and will not come with a 120Hz refresh rate display, as was originally thought. This indicates that the models may have 60 Hz refresh rate displays, or they may have 90 Hz.
In addition, iPhone 12 models are expected to be charged wirelessly. A report from ITHome suggests that this will be the first generation of iPhones that come with strong magnets that put the phone in the optimal charging position when placed on the charging pad. This will allow the phone to point itself in the right place on the wireless charging pad and ensure that it is actually charging.
In other news, Apple announced that there would be a “Time Flies” event on September 15, which is expected to showcase an inexpensive Apple Watch, Apple Watch Series 6, and two iPad models.
