There was a lot of news about future iPhone models last week. Information on the next models of Apple Watch and AirPods headphones was also published. Yesterday we also wrote about the fact that Apple is trying to limit leaks of information about future products.
According to analysts from TrendForce, all this year’s iPhone models will have a smaller indentation in the screen. Apple intends to stay with the current variants – 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB for Pro models and 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB for basic smartphones. In the case of iPhones from the Pro line, they will receive support for 120 hertz refresh. Also, the LiDAR scanner will be reserved only for these models. All this year’s iPhones will receive support for the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) system. In addition, in Pro models, ultra-wide-angle objects will receive autofocus.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the refreshed iPhone SE will appear in Apple’s offer in the first half of 2022. This smartphone is to be equipped with the latest A15 processor and a 5G network module. Potential customers should not expect any changes in the appearance of the device. It will be practically the same, proven design with a 4.7-inch screen. Introducing 5G to the cheapest phone in Apple’s offer could encourage new customers to buy a smartphone from the American manufacturer, which would translate into a larger market share.
What’s more, Kuo says in 2022 Apple will still offer four iPhone models, but the 5.4-inch Mini model will disappear from the offer. The company will only sell 6.1 and 6.7-inch phones, which will translate into two models of each size. The cheaper 6.7-inch model is expected to cost less than $ 900, but it will lack, among other things, a fingerprint reader under the screen due to costs. In the case of the 6.7-inch Pro model, its price is expected to be $ 1099.
On Wednesday, the editors of DigiTimes presented the latest information on the Apple Watch Series 7. According to them, Apple intends to use a smaller S7 chip in the new watches, which will allow more space for a larger battery or additional components, including new sensors. This is to be possible due to the fact that the new system-in-package (SiP) module is to be two-sided. The Taiwanese manufacturer ASE Technology is to be responsible for its production. The company’s website also showed information that it is capable of producing double-sided modules, which may confirm the above-mentioned information.
A day later, on Thursday, new information appeared suggesting that new AirPods headphones may be available for sale this year. At least seven Apple vendors – Semco, LG Innotek, Kinsus, Unimicron, Nan Ya, Zhen Ding and AT&S – have started shipping what are known as printed circuit boards (PCBs), which will be used in the new AirPods, among others. The commencement of deliveries during this period may indicate that the company plans to debut new headphones in the second half of this year.
Apple limits leaks on future products
Weibo user Kang said he was contacted by Apple lawyers and warned against continuing to publish reports on next-generation devices.
In the letter that Kang received, it said that information about unpublished Apple designs and products must not be disclosed, as this is beneficial to Cupertino’s competition and may also mislead customers because they may not be relevant. Similar letters were also received by other people who publish such reports.
