New iPhones may include Face ID with wider angle; see forecasts for 2019/20
The clock is beginning to beat faster as we approach Apple's September special event, and as a result we follow a series of last-minute rumors about Apple's upcoming releases, including the company's upcoming services.
Mark gurman, gives Bloomberg, put his mouth on the trombone and detailed some possible features of the infamous iPhones “11 ″, “11 Pro” and “11 Pro Max”, including information on the next update of the iPad Pro and a vision of the future Airpods It's from HomePod, which should get a new model next year.
As for the criticized expected new iPhones, Gurman "confirmed" rumors about the possible names of upcoming handsets, including the addition of the nomenclature "Pro" on OLED models. As expected, the Bloomberg proposes that the biggest news of flagships be the new triple camera system that should combine wide angle, telephoto and ultra wide.
More than a hardware improvement, Apple should tap the potential of the iPhones' new camera system into a new feature (probably unique to the next models) called Smart Frame. As we reported, this technology will make users adjust the framing and cropping of the image after it has been taken, but it doesn't end with: according to Bloomberg, the new iPhones will be able to take three photos simultaneously (from each lens) and combine them to “create a high resolution image”.
Still on resolution, Gurman also expects the video quality of top-of-the-line models to “significantly increase,” based on a number of video editing features built into the iOS 13. The difference with these models, however, is that these settings can be applied in real time while the video is being recorded.
All of this may be possible thanks to the “A13” chip, which perhaps gets a new component called “AMX”, a type of mathematical coprocessor geared toward AR-related and computer vision tasks.
Another major improvement of the upcoming iPhones may be related to the Face ID. Since the introduction of Apple's facial biometrics system with the iPhone X, in 2017 the technology has gained only occasional improvements, but nothing very significant. Upcoming models, however, should gain a new “multi-angle” sensor to identify users' faces from a wider field of view.
IPhones will include a new multi-angle Face ID sensor that captures a wider field of view so users can unlock devices more easily even when devices are flat on a table.
What's more, compared to Ma's upcoming smartphones, Gurman predicts better water resistance (which is already better on the XS and XS Max iPhones), the end of 3D Touch in favor of a “new technology” of Haptic Touch, external design with tougher glasses (with a duller effect).
The report also cites that a possible iPad Pro upgrade is on the way, which should of course include some improvements in the processing and performance of Ma's tablet. But the big and major change may actually be a camera system. triple in top-of-the-line models, bringing them closer to the possible features of future iPhones.
THE Bloomberg also put his hand in the fire and spiked that Apple is about to launch a new 10.2-inch iPad, which, as we previously reported, will probably replace the current 9.7-inch model.
As for the smartwatch, it is pretty much assumed that the main change in the next model (the “Apple Watch Series 5”) should be the new titanium and ceramic finishes.
On the one hand the bad news given the watch's potential to grow and gain new features; on the other hand, maybe this is really the best thing to do since "the team is winning".
Here, too, without much news. According to the Bloomberg, the new models of Ma wireless headsets are already under development and their main features should be water resistance and noise cancellation, something that had been reported for some time.
In addition to recalling the new Mac Pro (which does not yet have a release date set), Gurman also reported that the speculated 16-inch MacBook Pro Quite likely, but dare not say when it will be announced. At the beginning of this month, another source "confirmed" the release of this model for October, but everything is still quite diffused.
Last but not least, the Bloomberg argued that Apple will launch a new HomePod in 2020. Among the improvements of the next generation of the smart speaker from Ma would be thinking to launch a model with only two tweeters (five smaller than the hardware currently has).
Therefore, Ma is likely to market the next HomePod at an even lower price than the current model, which had its value reduced a few months ago due to weak demand for the product. Anyway, the question remains: How cheap is the likely future HomePod should be?
In fact, the second half is usually the busiest period for Apple, precisely because of the launch of new gadgets and now services; however, only time will reveal what actually emerges from the above rumors.
