Apple will remove the Lightning interface from at least one iPhone 12 model in 2021, which is in line with analyst Mingming Guo’s prediction last month. They said that this would also make EarPods wired headphones no longer included in the new phone.
The information that is collected from Apple’s supply chain shows that Apple’s iPhone 12 to be released later this year will be equipped with a ToF 3D camera and AR capabilities will be significantly improved. At the same time, the new gadget will adopt a new version of the Face ID facial recognition system, which will respond faster.
According to the latest foreign media reports, Apple’s iPhone 12 design this year will not change much compared to last year, at least it will still be equipped with Liu Haiping, because the current supply chain strength, the camera can not be done Placed below the screen.
The above report comes from a Barclays report. The information collected from Apple’s supply chain shows that the iPhone 12 to be released later this year will be equipped with a ToF 3D camera, AR capabilities will be significantly improved, and the new gadget will use a new version of Face ID Facial recognition system will respond faster.
The high-end model of iPhone 12 (the successor to iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max) will be equipped with a new ToF 3D camera sensor, which can help iPhone create 3D maps and also help Apple optimize its AR application.
ToF lens is the “time-of-flight” lens. When used in mobile phone photography systems, it uses laser technology to calculate the “transmit-to-receive” time to construct 3D images. Compared to the original deep-sensing lens of Face ID, ToF provides more accurate depth perception and 3D image accuracy.
ToF lenses have been used on some Samsung phones, such as the Galaxy Note 10+. Samsung has demonstrated how to use sensors to capture pictures of objects and then quickly create 3D models.
As a result, users with a 3D printer at home may be able to print out copies. Since ToF provides depth data, it can also be used to improve portrait portraits of the iPhone. With more depth information, Apple can make these photos clear.
The iPhone 12 may be equipped with up to 6GB of memory, and Barclays confirmed this in a new report. Of course, Apple will only use it in the higher-end iPhone 12 series.
According to the information given by Guo Mingyu’s previous reports, Apple plans to release five new iPhones in 2020, including the “iPhone SE 2” (or “iPhone 9”) to be released at the end of March, and four High-end models that support 5G.
In the one-year life cycle of Apple’s 5G iPhone, total shipments can exceed 120 million units, which will drive the overall iPhone shipments. It is expected that Apple’s shipments in 2019 will be less than 200 million units. Stimulated by new machines, Apple’s overall shipments may exceed 210 million units in 2020.
