The next generation of iPhones has yet to be launched, but, as usual, there have been several rumors about the company's alleged four launches, with 5G already part of the equation. This time, it was Bloomberg to advance that the apple company is preparing a change in the design of the iPhone Pro chassis, with some augmented reality (AR) features of the new iPad Pro, rumors that in early April had already appeared in the Internet.
The news was released based on information released by people familiar with Apple's plan and corroborate the rumors of analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, released last year. However, there are some differences with respect to the "technical forecasts" of this new design.
According to the website, Apple will launch two iPhone Pro models, with three rear cameras, which will integrate the new 3D system of the iPad Pro, the LIDAR. In early April, youtuber Filip Koroy showed how the technology could also "fit" in the next version of the iPhone.
As for dimensions, Bloomerg claims that the largest iPhone Pro will have a "slightly larger" screen than the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max and that the Face ID notch will "probably" be reduced to size. J Kuo guaranteed last year that the iPhones Pro would feature 5.4 inch and 6.7 inch screens and all of them would integrate 5G technology.
According to the new information released, the four iPhones will include a "significant update" of the processor. The focus is on improving the performance of artificial intelligence and AR, guarantees the site.
HomePod: Is Apple developing a smaller, cheaper version?
According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on a smaller, cheaper version of the smart portable speaker HomePod, due out later this year. In addition, Apple's trackers, called Apple Tags, will allow users to track real-world objects such as keys and wallets.
As for the launch, and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the new iPhones can be launched several weeks after the said "normal" period, in September. Still, it will remain planned for the fall season.
