4G Gene iPad Air and 8th Gene iPad
We have been hearing about the new fourth generation iPad Air for some time, including details such as a possible new design. 9to5MacThe source confirms that the new iPad Air will have the same design as the Home button without the 2018 and 2020 iPad Pro models. However, the iPad Air will lack Face ID, meaning that it will have a Reallocated Touch ID – which is most likely a side button.
While the details about the chip inside it are still unknown, we learned that the 4G generation iPad Air will feature a single-lens rear camera. The LiDAR scanner and telephoto lens will remain exclusive to the 2020 iPad Pro. Apple will launch the new iPad Air with the following model variants: A2072, A2316, A2324, and A2325.
Apple is also working on a new entry-level iPad model, possibly the 8th generation iPad, and may be offered tomorrow. The 8th generation iPad will have the same design as the 7th generation, with larger edges around the screen and a home button with Touch ID built-in.
The company is likely to upgrade the entry-level iPad model with a new A-series processor with a new 7-generation processor, as the 7th-generation iPad currently has an A10 Fusion chip. The 8th generation iPad will be available in these models: A2270, A2428, and A2429.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro
Rumors point to four new iPhone models this year, ranging from 5.4-inch models to 6.7-inch models. The iPhone 12 is expected to be offered in two models with 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch displays, while the current iPhone 11 is only available in single models with a 6.1-inch display. As Apple is upgrading this year’s iPhone midrange model from LCD to OLED display, we can also see larger resolution screens.
earlier this year, 9to5Mac Specifically the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 model’s interface was revealed at first glance, and we mentioned that this model could have a 425 PPI screen instead of a 326 PPI screen like the iPhone 11 and iPhone XR.
Our source has also confirmed that the iPhone 12 will have the same camera arrangement as the iPhone 11, with only wide and ultra-wide lenses, but no telephoto lens or LiDAR scanner. As you might expect, the iPhone 12 will have Face ID and U1 chip in both models. The iPhone 12 will be available in the following model variants: A2176, A2172, and A2403.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch OLED displays respectively. In addition to the new design, one of the most notable changes on this year’s high-end iPhone model is the addition of a LiDAR scanner to the triple lens camera system. The LiDAR scanner will be available in both Pro models, despite some rumors that the new sensor will be exclusive to the 6.7-inch model.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are coming later this year with these variants: A2407, A2408, A2411, A2341, and A2342. It is noteworthy that all these model variants are the same that were found in Eurasian’s database a few months ago, and they usually belong to different regions due to LTE and 5G bands.
While we were working on this article, Evan Blass (better known as Evelyx) also confirmed that Apple will introduce the 8th generation iPad tomorrow with the A12X chip and Lightning connector. He also mentioned that the fourth generation iPad Air will have an A14 chip with a USB-C connector.
According to the latest Blass tweet, the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE – the rumored entry-level Apple Watch model – are also coming tomorrow in two sizes and GPS and cellular versions each.
