5 new iPhones could land in 2020, together with four iPhone 12 models


2020 could be a big year for Apple: it’s being tipped to push out more iPhones than ever over the next 12 months, with four iPhone 12 models rumored to be launching in the second half of the year, following an iPhone SE 2 in the first half.

That’s according to Ming-Chi Kuo (an Apple analyst with a good track record), who said as much in a research note obtained by MacRumors.

About iPhones
The iPhone is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. All generations of the iPhone use Apple’s iOS mobile operating system software. The first-generation iPhone was released on June 29, 2007, and multiple new hardware iterations with new iOS releases have been released since.
The user interface is built around the device’s multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPhone has Wi-Fi and can connect to cellular networks. An iPhone can take photos, play music, send and receive email, browse the web, send and receive text messages, record notes, perform mathematical calculations, and receive visual voicemail. Shooting video also became a standard feature with the iPhone 3GS. Other functionality, such as video games, reference works, and social networking, can be enabled by downloading mobile apps. As of January 2017, Apple’s App Store contained more than 2.2 million applications available for the iPhone.
Apple has released twelve generations of iPhone models, each accompanied by one of the twelve major releases of the iOS operating system. The first-generation iPhone was a GSM phone and established design precedents, such as a button placement that has persisted throughout all releases and a screen size maintained for the next four iterations. The iPhone 3G added 3G network support, and was followed by the iPhone 3GS with improved hardware, the iPhone 4 with a metal chassis, higher display resolution and front-facing camera, and the iPhone 4S with improved hardware and the voice assistant Siri. The iPhone 5 featured a taller, 4-inch display and Apple’s newly introduced Lightning connector. In 2013, Apple released the iPhone 5S with improved hardware and a fingerprint reader, and the lower-cost iPhone 5C, a version of the 5 with colored plastic casings instead of metal. They were followed by the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with models featuring 4.7-and-5.5-inch (120 and 140 mm) displays. The iPhone 6S was introduced the following year, which featured hardware upgrades and support for pressure-sensitive touch inputs, as well as the iPhone SE—which featured hardware from the 6S but the smaller form factor of the 5S. In 2016, Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which add water resistance, improved system and graphics performance, a new rear dual-camera setup on the Plus model, and new color options, while removing the 3.5 mm headphone jack found on previous models. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were released in 2017, adding a glass back and an improved screen and camera. The iPhone X was released alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, with its highlights being a near bezel-less design, an improved camera and a new facial recognition system, named Face ID, but having no home button, and therefore, no Touch ID. In September 2018, Apple again released 3 new iPhones, which are the iPhone XS, an upgraded version of the since discontinued iPhone X, iPhone XS Max, a larger variant with the series’ biggest display as of 2018 and iPhone XR, a lower end version of the iPhone X.
The first-generation iPhone was described as “revolutionary” and a “game-changer” for the mobile phone industry. Subsequent iterations of the iPhone have also garnered praise. The iPhone is one of the most widely used smartphones in the world, and its success has been credited with helping Apple become one of the world’s most valuable publicly traded companies.
As of November 1, 2018, a total of more than 2.2 billion iPhones had been sold.

Five new iPhones could land in 2020, including four iPhone 12 models

About including
Inclusion or Include may refer to:

Apparently those four iPhone 12 models will include a 5.4-inch phone with two rear cameras, a 6.1-inch phone with two rear cameras, a 6.1-inch phone with three rear cameras, and a 6.7-inch phone with three rear cameras.

These phones will all apparently have OLED screens, support 5G, and resemble the iPhone 4, with a new, flatter metal frame, which is something we’ve heard before.

The iPhone SE 2, meanwhile, will apparently have a 4.7-inch LCD screen, one rear camera, and won’t support 5G. This model is said to resemble the iPhone 8, complete with a Touch ID home button, but with a newer A13 chipset and 3GB of RAM.

What’s interesting about these claims is that until very recently rumors had only been talking about three iPhone 12 models. Then, we heard from a JPMorgan analyst that there might be four, a claim which Kuo seems to agree with.

We’d take this with a pinch of salt for now though, as it doesn’t sound like there would be much to differentiate the two 6.1-inch models. Still, if there really are this many iPhones on the way then we’re sure to hear plenty more about them soon.

It’s not too early for iPhone 13 rumors either – the word on the Apple street is that the 2021 iPhones might come without any ports at all.
