By convention, Apple releases a series of major product updates each fall. For example, in 2019, we will have three models of the iPhone 11 family.But with 3d tof sensors,5g and oled technology maturing, the company is expected to be more pleasantly surprised by 2020. It has been reported that apple is developing new iPad pro, MAC and smart tag, and is even brewing ar head display, entry-level homepod speaker, new Apple TV set-top box and other devices.
First of all, let's talk about the legendary low costIPhonenew product, although it may be named “iPhone SE2”, but the configuration and functionality may be closer to the iPhone 8 released in 2017.
Apple can even be named "iPhone 9" if it wants to. After all, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Apple released the iPhone x with the iPhone 8 / 8 plus, skipping the "9" number directly.
The iPhone SE2 is rumored to have adopted a 4.7-inch screen Touch ID fingerprint scheme and will follow the thick border of the iPhone 8 series. But the internal configuration has been upgraded to the A13 chip, the same as on Apple's old flagship.
To stay competitive, the iPhone se 2 features only low-cost rear single camera and 3gb ram, available in silver, red, and deep gray, priced at $399 (2777 RMB).
The iPhone 12 family is expected to meet in the fall of 2020, with screens expected to range in size from 5.4 to 6.7 inches. By contrast, the iPhone 11 three swordsmen are 5.8, 6.1, and 6.5 inches in size.
In terms of appearance, at least one new iphone being produced will be redesigned to have a metal border similar to the iphone and look unique and flat. At the same time, the bangs gap will be further reduced and the new TrueDepth camera will be accommodated.
It is said that the high-end model will adopt the 3D post three shot scheme, which can use the laser to calculate the depth information, so as to improve the photo quality and support the augmented reality (AR) function. At the same time, the entry-level model will use the post dual camera.
Of course, the 2020 iPhone product line is most expected to support 5g technology. Compared with the current 4G LTE network, 5g may bring earth shaking changes. It will take some time to popularize 5g network in the world.
As a good partner of "iPhone 12", apple watch series 6 is obviously indispensable. It is rumored that the new Apple smart watch has faster performance and stronger water resistance.
In addition, wireless transmission (Wi Fi and cellular network support) has also been improved by using LCP FPC in equipment.
Functionally,2020 Apple Watch is expected to add new sleep tracking patterns that provide health information such as sleep quality and duration.
Apple doesn't update in 2019IPadPro tablet, but the new model is rumoured to be available in the first half of 2020, supporting faster face unlocking (Face ID) and a rear-mounted 3D TOF camera system.
The new feature allows iPad pro to capture 3D models and then edit them with apple pencil to achieve a productivity leap.
The time-of-flight camera can measure the bounce time of light at each point to determine the distance between objects. This creates 3D images that achieve more accurate depth perception, and better virtual object placement.
Ming Chi Kuo, a leading analyst, points out that apple is planning to launch a 12.9-inch high-end iPad Pro model by the end of 2020. It is equipped with mini LED display, but it has not been confirmed.
Compared with OLED, Mini-LED is said to bring lighter product design without affecting the quality of the display. such as darker black, higher contrast, higher dynamic range (HDR), and better gamut coverage.
In addition, the general iPad product line is also expected to be updated in 2020, such as the 10.2-inch seventh generation iPad and the 10.5-inch iPad air.
It is rumored that apple is developing airtags smart tag, which can be connected with wallet, key and other items like tile's Bluetooth tracker, so as to track in the "find my" application.
Apple has yet to announce the release date of airtag, but given that it has been emerging in IOS 13 for several months, it is expected that the new product will meet you in 2020.
Airtags have a built-in chip directly connected to the iPhone to relay the location of the connected device. Similar to erasing after losing an iPhone, users can use any apple device (or web browser) on icloud to find lost airtag items.
AirTags are rumored to have adopted Apple's home-designed U1 ultra-wideband chip to achieve more accurate tracking than Bluetooth, making Apple stand out from the competition.
It's said that 2020MacBookThe Pro model will feature a Mini-LED screen, and Apple will release a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a clipped keyboard, expected in the first half of this year (previously reported to support 32GB of memory).
It should be noted that Apple will release new product announcements, such as software updates for iPhone, iPad, apple watch, Apple TV and MAC, at WWDC in June every year.
This year we are expected to get more details on software such as iOS 14, iPad OS 14, watch OS 7, TVOS 14, and mac OS 10.16 on WWDC 2020.
In addition, apple is said to be planning to launch a second generation of homepod smart speakers (the first was launched in 2017), which is said to further reduce the price to compete with other manufacturers.
Finally, we are expected to see Apple smart glasses (AR headset), new high-end earphones, MAC based on ARM chip platform and other novel products in 2020.
