Not only are the drawings consistent with all the latest rumors of the iPhone 12 Pro’s design, they match the chassis leak to the smallest details, including the new location of the SIM tray and 5G antenna.
Putting in a screen doesn’t add much to it, but it at least confirms the other details we know: The notch still hangs, and there will be no return to the home button anytime soon.

The beauty will likely be split, but it reveals the spirit of the 2010 iPhone 4 with its flat edges and soft curved corners. Certainly, a decade’s advance has not lost value: screens nowadays cover the entirety of the front, and the camera array is quite complex.
The Mix Plus has three cameras and an additional LiDAR depth sensor already available only on the latest iPad processor. Along with the rumored main camera, telephoto lens and wide-angle shooter, the LiDAR depth sensor will allow for better auto focus, low light and AR performance.
While @apple_idesigner has so far only produced renders of the iPhone 12 Pro, the standard iPhone 12 likely won’t look much different if previous versions have anything to do. The main difference is the size (5.4-inch and 6.1-inch for the iPhone 12, 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch for the iPhone 12 Pro) and the number of cameras – the standard iPhone 12 will reportedly do with just two lenses, and Lost on LiDAR. While we had heard that the Pro versions would get a 120Hz screen, the latest word is now that the feature has been dropped.
In terms of day-to-day performance, the iPhone 12 family should be the same across the board, with all handset brands benefitting from the A14 Bionic processor. This will not only be a performance shot in the hands of the previous generation, but the 5nm fabrication process should mean that there is an improvement in efficiency which can improve battery life.
The iPhone 12 family should be officially unveiled soon, but those hoping to see the handset at next week’s Apple event are likely to be disappointed by most accounts. Allegedly next week will be about the Apple Watch 6, with the company unveiling the iPhone 12 nearing release in October. This latter is more than usual, but then the last years have not been interrupted by a global epidemic…
