However four major devices were launched: the new iPad, iPad Air 4, Apple Watch 6 and Apple Watch SE, along with Apple One, a new subscription bundle for Apple apps.
So we’re getting a healthy dose of Apple products – but may new products be unveiled at the September event really tell us a thing or two about the upcoming iPhone 12? There are many new features and some interesting changes to the devices, which may give us some clues.
Sure, we’ve been reading quite a bit between the lines here, but we’ve come up with a list of six predictions about the iPhone 12 that we’ve learned about new iPads and Apple Watch, and about new subscriptions. Service.
1. A side-mounted fingerprint sensor
The new iPad Air 4 is Apple’s first product with Touch-ID built into a side-mounted button, rather than on older iPhones and lower-end tablets, or Face ID, like the new iPhones, or the iPad Pro.
This change makes sense – everyone is wearing a face mask nowadays, and Face ID doesn’t really work with a face-concealer accessory. Apple needs to move to physical fingerprint sensor for its new technology.
So can the iPhone 12 have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor? This is certainly possible – the phone will have buttons on the side after all, so it won’t represent a major design change, and switching from Face ID to Touch ID could enable Apple to fall a notch higher. , Which needs to be larger, can do all Face ID scanner houses.
Some Android phones, including the Moto G 5G Plus and Honor 20, use a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and this is a super-convenient way to turn on your phone, so we’ll be happy to see it on the iPhone 12. It beats incredible face ID, at least.
2. Sticking with 60 Hz
Rumors were pointing to the iPhone 12 having a screen refresh rate of 120Hz, a major step from previous iPhones that stuck at 60Hz. 60Hz has been the standard refresh rate for phones for years, but recently Android devices have pushed it to 90Hz, 120Hz and even 144Hz.
Apple has only used higher refresh rates in the iPad Pro models, which use variable refresh, automatically changing the rate based on what you’re doing – you can’t change it manually.
Despite the iPad Air 4 being the ‘iPad Pro Lite’, it doesn’t have variable refresh rates – so Apple has decided that people don’t care about the ease that high refresh rates bring?
There have also been rumors suggesting that Apple could not achieve 120Hz refresh rates built on time. Whatever the reason, maybe we’re stuck with 60Hz for another year.
3. Hello, USB-C
Like high refresh rates, some rumors pointed to the iPhone 12 being a standard USB-C port instead of the Apple-owned Lightning port – allowing the phone to offer faster charging and data transfer than previous iPhones Will give.
The previous few generations of the iPad Pro had USB-C ports, but now the iPad Air 4 also has one – so it’s clear that Apple doesn’t think the high-speed port is for business users only, and is a feature Which will be appreciated by all the users.
So hopefully we will use the USB-C port on the iPhone 12, and it won’t take a lifetime (as it seems) to charge your iPhone.
4. No in-box charger
One of the more controversial points discussed in the iPhone 12 leaks and rumors is whether or not it will come with an in-box charger. Ditching the tech will force users to buy their own charger, but it will cut e-waste, which will be environmentally beneficial.
Well, the Apple Watch 6 is confirmed that it doesn’t come with a charging pad in the box – you’ll have to buy your own, or use an existing pad to charge your smartwatch.
Apple did not tell us whether the Apple Watch SE, or any of the new iPads, would come with a charger in the box. But in a recent interview, in which an Apple executive criticized the inclusion of in-box boxers, which has been linked to the lack of the Watch 6, it seems likely that the iPhone 12 may not be even with one Will come
5. A14 Bionic Chipset
The iPhone 11 had an A13 bionic chipset, and it is likely that the iPhone 12 will have the A14 bionic. The new iPad Air 4 also has this chipset, and the oddity of the fact that Slate is launching before the new iPhone gives us an early glimpse into this new technology.
This is Apple’s first mobile chipset that is 5nm, which is much smaller than the previous processor, and is 30% faster than its predecessor. The iPad Air 4 is set as a fast device, and by extension the iPhone 12.
6. Even more Apple bloatware?
Apple smartphones and tablets come with a load of pre-installed apps, with the likes of Apple TV and Apple Podcasts on your device whether you want them to or not – and this situation may get worse with the launch of Apple One .
Apple One combines Apple News, Apple Fitness and one-to-one subscription bundles, and, like some other brands of apps, you can be sure they baked into Apple devices to encourage you to try Will go, and hopefully buy them.
Hopefully this will not be the case – we are crossing our fingers that Apple will get the message that, if we want to try these services, we will download them for ourselves; However, the home page of our iPad is linked to the fact that it has not happened yet.
