Apple could change up the design of the iPhone 12 in 2020 and surprise us with a new, yet familiar look. We rounded up all the rumours about the next iPhone’s design and features, including a four-camera array. On this week’s Apple Core roundup, we also check in on the latest rumours about Apple’s AR glasses and find out why Apple TV Plus is making waves.
What will the iPhone look like in 2020?
The iPhone 11 is old news in the world of Apple leaks and rumours, so it’s time to speculate about what we’ll see on the 2020 iPhone.
Let’s recap some of the basics about what we’re expecting from the rumours so far: 5G support, 120Hz refresh rates, a time-of-flight camera and a new design. Longtime Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also said that Apple may reduce the screen size of the 2020 version of the iPhone 11 Pro. Instead of the 5.8-inch screen, it has now, it would be 5.4 inches.
You’ll notice the rounded corners we know from today’s iPhones are all but gone. Instead, the design may look more like the iPhone 4 and 5 from years past. Those flat edges and sharper lines harken back to the older design. It wouldn’t be a complete surprise if Apple decides to go back to this aesthetic, especially considering the redesigned iPad Pro from 2018.
After moving to the three-camera array on this year’s iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, Apple may add a time-of-flight camera. Some other phones such as the Galaxy Note 10 Plus have this camera to help capture depth information. This could do a number of things like help with AR mapping, but could also mean we finally get the ability to have portrait mode in video.
