The sale of iPhones is declining due to Pandemic, but Apple is confident that its upcoming 5G iPhones will have high demand. According to a new report, the tech giant has asked to make 75 million handsets to the end of this year. The company, along with other devices, is also working on a new iPad Air and smaller HomePad.
According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple hopes that the demand for 5G iPhone 12 shipments will reach up to 80 million in 2020. As we already knew that there will be four new devices: two Pro models in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes, two lower-end 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch handsets, the latter of which will be the complete display ever found in an iPhone. At the same time, the company may launch non-Pro variants first.
All the new devices will come with OLED panels and iPad Pro-style square edges, along with high-end designs featuring stainless steel sides than aluminum. Moreover, Apple is going to replace the midnight green with a new dark blue color option. And at least, the largest of the Pro phones will acquire the same LiDAR Scanner found in 2020 iPad Pro designs.
Moreover, each device will feature the new A14 SoC, based on TSMC’s 5nm process node, which will offer 15 percent extra performance and 30 percent less power drain as compared to its forerunners.
Notably, some testers of Apple have expressed 5G isn’t as revolutionary as expected, with present 5G networks “not improving connection speeds much.”
We also heard that Apple is preparing a new iPad Air, which features an edge-to-edge display similar to the iPad Pro. According to previous rumors, it will arrive either with an under-screen Touch ID or a Touch ID power button and has a 10.8-inch display.
Besides these, we see two new models of Apple Watch–Series 6 and a new budget option. And these might arrive with blood oxygen monitoring. Over-ear headphones, possibly named the AirPods Studio, are coming, along with a smaller HomePod speaker that will be inexpensive than the $299 latest release.
The company is working on a new Apple TV box that arrives with a faster processor for better gaming. Also, these Apple TVs will have an improved remote control that has a feature much like to Find My, enabling it to be located when lost, the report further noted.
Finally, the work has started on Airtags. These Bluetooth tracking devices could be attached to items like wallets and keys. So they may find through Find My application.
