The economic problems of 2020 generated byThe coronavirus pandemic has led to a change in the usual timing of the presentation of new products by all the world's leading corporations. Apple has not avoided this and has moved the usual presentation of the next line of iPhone from September to October. Taking into account the historical transfer of the complete set of computers to branded ARM processors, the presentation of which will take place in November, we are expecting three whole autumn Apple events dedicated to new products this year. However, the greatest interest among Apple fans is still a presentation, which will take place this week on October 13 at 20:00 Moscow time.
The first, with a high degree of probability, will benew smartphones of the iPhone 12 line are presented, the presentation of which is the most anticipated event at this event. Given the long wait time and the huge interest of fans of Apple products, insiders have already posted on the Internet the technical parameters and design features of all four iPhone 12 models. These will be: the base model iPhone 12, two models of the Pro family - iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max and a newcomer in the line of smartphones from Apple - the compact iPhone 12 mini.
It is expected that the new iPhone 12 mini will receive a 5.4-inch screen, a dual main camera and a hardware base, similar to the “older brothers of the iPhone 12 line.
Feature in the design of the entire iPhone 12 serieswill use flat edges similar to those already available in the iPhone 5 / 5s. The color scheme will also be added - the iPhone will be on sale in dark blue.
In the older top-end iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 ProMax will be equipped with displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, 6 GB of RAM and LiDAR sensors in the camera unit. In the "younger" iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 RAM will be installed at 4 GB. The hardware base of all 2020 Apple smartphones will run on the top-end A14 processors. The issue of supporting fifth-generation networks for all smartphones, or only for top-end iPhones, is still unclear.
One of the most talked about innovations foriPhone 12 will be a change to the delivery of the smartphone. From now on, Apple will not ship a charger and headset in the box with the smartphone. At the same time, the company explains this step with concern for the environment. Base models in the US are expected to range from $ 699 for the iPhone 12 mini to $ 999 for the iPhone 12 Pro.
The next novelty, which will also certainly bepresented at the presentation on October 13 - this is a tracker for finding things AirTag. The high probability of the presentation of this gadget is explained by the presence of the alleged device manual, codes in iOS and mysterious circles in the logo of the announcement of the current event.
The compact round keychain will becomeindispensable when searching for numerous remotes, keys, wallet and other necessary things. It will be possible to control the location of objects marked by the AirTag tracker using the Locator application. Keyfobs will most likely be recharged wirelessly.
Another gadget from Apple expected on October 13 -These are AirPods Studio on-ear headphones. Insiders and experts alike expect these to be full-size wireless on-ear headphones with an ingenious symmetrical design for versatility. Sound adjustment will be carried out automatically using special touch sensors and software.
Indirect confirmation of the imminent presentationAirPods Studio has been the removal of third-party headphones from Apple stores and website. However, there is a possibility that the headphones will be presented at a later date, possibly at a third presentation in November, along with the first ARM-based Mac computers.
A smaller version of the HomePod mini smart speakermay also appear with equal probability both on October 13 and at the November presentation. The technical details of the new product are still unknown and experts suggest that Apple engineers will simply reduce the number of microphones, reduce the power of the speakers, replacing them with more compact ones.
Disputes over the presentation of a MacBook with an ARM processorwere discontinued after an expert opinion by Mark Gurman appeared in the authoritative publication Bloomberg, suggesting that it would take place in November. The first computer to use ARM-branded processors will be the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The computer will use the A14X SoC, a modification of the A14 processor found in the iPad Air and iPhone 12 lineup.
