2020 iPhone Rumors
Despite the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro coming out just a few months ago, rumors about next year’s iPhone have begun. While we won’t get a clearer picture until much later in 2020, these rumors have Apple fans excited for what the future holds. Here is a quick roundup of what features could be included in the 2020 iPhones.
Five Different iPhone Models
In September of 2019, Apple released three different iPhone models – the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. In 2020, it is rumored that five different models could be released, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo’s predictions for the models include:
- 4.7-inch iPhone SE 2: LCD display, single-lens rear camera, no 5G support
- 5.4-inch iPhone 12: OLED display, dual-lens rear camera, 5G support
- 6.1-inch iPhone 12: OLED display, dual-lens rear camera, 5G support
- 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro: OLED display, triple-lens rear camera, 5G support
- 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max: OLED display, triple-lens rear camera, 5G support
One of the most common themes of the 2020 iPhone rumors is around 5G connectivity. With most major networks launching their 5G networks in 2019, an iPhone with 5G only makes sense. Apple plans to transition back to Qualcomm chips, and Kuo expects the 2020 iPhones to include the Gualcomm X55 5G chip.
An Updated iPhone SE
One of the most wished for phones from Apple fans has been a smaller iPhone. The iPhone SE was launched in March 2016, and fans have been clamoring for an update. The iPhone SE 2 is rumored to be released in early 2020, featuring a 4.7-inch display and a single rear camera. The design is believed to be similar to the iPhone 8, but will include the updated A13 Bionic processor. Apple currently sells the iPhone 8 for $449, so a similar price for the iPhone SE 2 can be expected.
A Completely Wireless iPhone
One of the more ‘out there’ rumors about the 2020 iPhones includes an iPhone without a Lightning port. Many have hoped Apple would ditch the Lightning cable in favor of USB-C, but this phone is rumored to be completely wireless with no ports. While wireless charging has gone mainstream, a phone with no ports does still present several obstacles. Most car manufacturers do not yet support wireless Carplay, and many diagnostics for iPhones require a port.
