Apple iPhone 12 will Surprise World with New Features

While there’s plenty of time before we get to see Apple’s next-gen iPhones, the rumor train is already starting to pick up the pace. The latest report comes from Japan’s Macotakara and claims the next iPhone flagships may come with a new short-range Wi-Fi connectivity standard.



The 802.11ay standard which is still in its developmental phase uses 60GHz spectrum for high bandwidth data transfers. A potential use case for this is for improved AirDrop transfers between compatible iPhone 12 models. This is still an early rumor, though, so we wouldn’t take it too seriously.

The reports also says that we might see the long-rumored NFC AirTags alongside the iPhone 12 lineup. According to a recent report estimate, Apple is expecting 100 million iPhone 12 shipments in 2020. We are likely to get three sized iPhone 12 models with the Pro models sporting 120Hz ProMotion displays, alongside new 3D sensing cameras and up to 6GB RAM.

The design is expected to be a throwback to the iPhone 4 days with a flat metal frame and the Pro models are said to work on both mmWave and Sub-6 GHz 5G networks.





Firstly, the new iPhone release date will definitely be September 2020 - and it's always around the second week. So we're going to guess that we'll see Apple unveil the iPhone 12 on 8 September (or possibly 15 September if it wants to hit a later on-sale date).


You'll be able to pick it up 10 days after that, so you'll need a Friday off work if you're desperate to get your hands on one.
