Apple’s 2020 iPhone
We’re likely just weeks away from Apple launching their 2020 iPhones, and the rumour mill is in full swing, hinting at some major changes I’m so excited for. All signs are pointing toward this being the year the iPhone gets 5G, preparing for new networks once released.
Most of the trusted sources for Apple rumors seem to agree that instead of announcing three new iPhone models, like Apple has in recent years, they will reveal four:
- A new 5.4-inch model, which would have a smaller screen than the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro.
- A low-end 6.1-inch model with similar specs as its 5.4-inch sibling
- A second 6.1-inch model with high-end specs
- A new 6.7-inch model, which would be a bigger screen than the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Apart from 5G capabilities, one of the biggest and most noticeable changes will be its shape and look. Apple has stuck with the same basic silhouette for the iPhone — a rounded rectangle with rounded sides — since 2014. This year, however, rumours indicate the newest iPhones will have flat edges, returning to the glory days of the early iPhones (4th & 5th generations to be more specific).
A brand new navy/midnight blue colour is also rumoured to be unveiled on launch day, which I personally can’t wait to get my hands on.
Other features will become apparent at launch and will certainly be covered in later blog posts. Stay tuned.
