If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, you want to make sure that you’re getting the best device currently available. At the moment, the iPhone 11 series, including the Pro and the Pro Max, are some of the best smartphones on the market. However, in 2020, there are expectations for Apple to release not just a new series of iPhones, but they have already announced the new iPhone SE 2. Furthermore, we have been seeing new deals on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR from 2018.So, what do we know about the iPhones we can expect to see in 2020?
The iPhone SE 2020
Well, first, let’s take a look at one of the phones that have already been released. The iPhone SE 2020 (SE standing for special edition), is the latest generation in the SE lineup, designed to be a budget iPhone that repurposes much of the tech of the more recent entries, but in a more affordable package.The iPhone SE 2020 comes with A13 Bionic which, at the time of release, is the fastest chip in a smartphone, as well as their latest camera system, which Apple states is the best single-camera system in an iPhone. Meanwhile, the exterior design is most reminiscent of the iPhone 8 series.The A13 chipset (also used in the iPhone 11 series) allows for faster processing speeds throughout, as well as providing performance improvements for the camera. The compact SE 20202, with its 4.7-inch screen, does not have the technical power that the iPhone 11 series brings, but it is designed for comfort and convenience.
What do we know about the iPhone 12?
At the moment, many expect that Apple will continue to follow the trend of releasing its next generation of flagship phones in 2020. To many, the release of the latest iPhone SE 2020 shows that the company is still carrying on with its release schedule, regardless of the impact of COVID-19, which has resulted in them closing all their stores throughout the US and outside of China for the foreseeable future.That said, there has yet to be any official announcement of the iPhone 12 series. We do not even know if that will officially be the title, though it is the one that most publications and brand fans are currently going with.Currently, there are a lot of rumors floating around regarding the iPhone 12. For instance, while potential delays have been reported, there are still indications that we are likely to see an October release date dropping relatively soon. The trend of decreasing prices may continue on from the iPhone 11’s release, too. Potential spec changes are not as widely reported on, but there has been speculation of new screen sizes being introduced to the series, including the largest screens yet for the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which could go as large as 6.7 inches. 5G connectivity has largely been speculated on, as well. There has been a recent leak that threatens to spill the beans on the whole iPhone 12 range. As with all leaks, these should be taken with a grain of salt, but they reveal a 5.4” base model, 6.1” iPhone 12 Max, 6.1” iPhone 12 Pro, and 6.7” iPhone 12 Max. The leaks state that all phones will use 5G capabilities, but that the Pro handsets will use top-of-the-line mmWave 5G technology for the best possible connection.
Is it worth waiting for the iPhone 12?
This is the biggest question on the minds of everyone looking at the current iPhone line-up right now. The recently released iPhone SE 2020 offers a budget-friendly approach to some of the top-shelf technology currently available in the iPhone 11 series, while Apple and retailers have been offering better deals on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR from 2018, including more affordable refurbished models.To many, the excellent performance of the iPhone 11 series and the fact that the iPhone 12 series is still likely to be at least half a year away, even without any delays, might be enough to convince you to opt for one of the currently available models. However, if you want to prepare for the iPhone 12 series, you may want to sell your older phone for cash. Whether the iPhone 11, the higher-spec 11 Pro, or the iPhone X series, you can trade them all in to help you get ready for the 2020 releases.
