Apple could change the screen sizes for the 2020 iPhones 12, adding new design changes to the case and also spreading an important superpower under the hood. In this week's Apple Core summary, we look far into the future to see what Apple has in store for the year 2020, and to talk about the new features we've seen in the betas of the latest developers of iOS still discover. , iPadOS and WatchOS.
The iPhone 2020 may be experiencing some major design changes.
2020 will be an exciting year for the iPhone, with major changes expected both in the exterior and interior of Apple's flagship.
This week, longtime Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo (via MacRumors) said Apple will both increase and decrease the screen size on various 2020 iPhones. The 2020 version of the iPhone XS – iPhone 12? – would shrink from 5.8 to 5.4 inches, while the 2020 XS Max would grow from 6.5 to 6.7 inches. Apple would probably retain the 6.1-inch screen as a mid-range option, presumably the iPhone XR successor. These figures are in line with those cited in a similar report published a few months ago in the Taipei-based Digitimes newspaper.
Apart from the triple camera, the iPhone 2019 is not expected to introduce significant design changes into the product line, making the prospect of a complete redesign in 2020 even more appealing.
In addition to the new screen size Apple should move in 2020 to a pure OLED product range. These include the cheaper XR sequel (currently LCD) as well as some other design enhancements such as a smaller, flat-edged edge like what we saw in the iPad Pro 2018, and possibly new cover materials.
More importantly, Apple expects Apple to leap to 5G by 2020. This is due to the recent agreement with Qualcomm after a lengthy legal battle. However, according to Kuos report, 5G connectivity would be exclusive to the high-end iPhone models. The 2020 version of the cheaper XR would have to wait to get the 5G chip from Qualcomm.
Beta 2 for iOS 13 Developer Unveils New Details
With two beta releases for developers coming soon, and more details on Apple's latest software updates, iOS 13, iPadOS, WatchOS 6, and MacOS Catalina.
This week, Apple released the beta version of iOS 13 and iPadOS for the second developer and helped clarify some of the questions we had about the future of 3D Touch last week. The beta version of the first developer seemed to have replaced the 3D touch functionality with a long press, which triggered speculation that Apple would replace in the next iPhone 11 3D Touch by Haptic Touch, similar to last year's XR.
But we can at least temporarily silence this rumor. According to Apple Insider, 3D Touch seems to be fully functional again in the second beta, along with some new features such as a shorter haptic effect and a faint click sound when 3D Touch is activated.
The other interesting change to The Second Developer Beta ofis that it is available via a wireless update directly on the phone. According to 9to5Mac, Beta is available to registered developers who have installed the configuration profile of Apple's developer website, while the first version was only available through direct IPSW file download and a full iTunes restore.
The highlights inare of course the same for all betas: dark mode, video editing, map and reminder updates, and better privacy features.
WatchOS 6 makes the Apple Watch even more independent
Apple is working to make the Apple Watch more independent of the iPhone by providing its own App Store in WatchOS 6. The beta of the second developer offers another way to free them from the phone.
According to MacRumors, this beta allows downloading software updates over the mobile network directly to the Apple Watch. Previously, all software updates for the Apple Watch had to be initiated and downloaded via an iPhone.
The update option now appears in the General tab of the Settings app on the clock. This is the same as the steps you would take when downloading iOS updates to the iPhone.
Another exciting software change for the Apple Watch is that you will soon be able to remove some of these preinstalled native apps. According to TechCrunch, this excludes certain apps, such as heart rate and messages, but it does apply to at least 10 other apps, including Apple's latest cycle app, which may not be useful to male users.
Currently, you can only delete third-party apps on the Apple Watch by long pressing the app from the app menu and tapping the X: //www.cnet.com/ "height =" 30 "width =" 100 "/>
