Most iPhone users rush to get the latest and greatest version. The hype of the iPhone 12 is gaining speed as its launch day gets closer. We don’t know all of the statistics yet, but we do know it should live up to technological expectations of users. So, should you hold on to your iPhone 11 or upgrade when the new version launches?
What We Know
The newest Apple phone has many people waiting on pins and needles. We do know it has 5G and OLED, or organic light-emitting diode technology. Most people without a worry of the price and that love the newest technology would jump in excitement at these things. The drawback right now is that you might be waiting for a bit as the launch hasn’t been officially announced. We can say that Apple post on a test feed on its official YouTube account that it will have a live event September 10, 2020. That doesn’t mean it’s set in stone, but many wonder if this is the launch date. Other people say this has to be incorrect because Apple previously said the pandemic set the launch date back. Only time will tell. They also let it leak that it will have an AirPower wireless charger. AirPower means these phones can be placed on a mat along with AirPods to charge.
Compare And Contrast the 11 and 12
One of the most wanted things for most phone users is the 5G connection. 5G isn’t as widespread as 4G, but it should be in the future. 5G is going to become a normal, everyday thing in the future. Most people cannot get a 5G signal in remote areas at this time. That will change in the near future. Truthfully, there isn’t that much difference between 4G LTE and 5G. The problem with this is that there is not a difference in the present time. In the future, 4G will become pretty much obsolete. This means your internet might not work in the upcoming years if you have an older phone.This will affect the re-sale value of the phones.
The look of the phone is a huge pull to it. If it doesn’t look appealing to the eyes, many people don’t look at it again. When the screen on your phone lights up each time you look at it, you’re getting into a new world of excitement. The bright colors and graphics mean something to most people. The LCD screens are slowly being replaced by the new OLED screens. These have vibrant colors with deeper black. This means easier scrolling for the viewers. The leaks of the 12 show it is equip with ProMotion technology. This technology offers better streaming, gaming and video results. The mobile gaming market is soaring so the option of an OLED screen is appealing to many people.
The ideas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR) are exciting to many people. These are thought to be a part of our normal lives in the future. The 12 is expected to have an A14 chips. This means it will enhance your AR and AI experiences. It will also have faster processing. The AR experience will also have a LiDAR scanner meaning you can launch into the AR apps instantly. If you’re wondering, the 11 has an A13 chip. The future could mean this chip is obsolete.
The newest phone usually has a better camera than the last. Apple is known for continuing its upgrades when they release phones. Each phone is better than the last when it comes to the camera. The higher end models of this newest phone is expected to include the improved Telephoto lens. This allows a zoom up to 3x instead of just 2x. It should also have a better Smart HDR helping in pictures with lower light.
Many people think the iPhone 12 is going to have the biggest changes in Apple’s history to its phones. It’s supposedly dropping the existing design for an entirely new look. Many are comparing it to the iPhone 4.The newest phone is rumored to have a stainless steel frame with flat glass along the front and back of the structure. This steel frame should be flast just like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. Many people say they loved the design of the iPhone 4. The 12 should be a lot more compact with its 5.4 inch screen. You can use it with one hand.
The highest end model is expected to have the 6.7 inch display screen. This makes it the biggest iPhone to this day. This also makes it the version with the biggest variation in sizes of the same type of phone. Navy Blue is the newest color to the choice of phones. No matter the design, it’s best to get a phone case to go with it. Apple can try to make the best phone that promises to never break, but glass screens simply break if they hit the wrong way no matter what. A phone case will protect your precious, priceless investment.
The 12 doesn’t have a pricetag at this time. There are some leaks predicting the cost for the four models of the 12. They claim the 5.4 inch phone will start at $649 and the 6.1 inch phone will start at $749. The iPhone 11 phone starts at $699. Another leak promised the 5.4 inch with 5G would start at $749. If these speculations are true, a replacement of an 11 would only cost $50 more with the addition of the 5G. The smaller version of the 12 would cost only $50 less than a new 11. Of course, this is all speculation at this time.
It’s up to each person if they decide to wait for the 12 or keep their version. If the wait is worth it to you, then go for it. The features on the newest version seem to be sleek and savvy for every person. It seems easy to use and easy to keep up with the changes in technology. The 12 will be a game changer in the world of phones and computers. Stick on a phone case and get ready to change the world.
