Citing unknown sources, the report says that the high-end iPhone 12 models will have a flat screen, flat stainless steel edges, and a smaller notch. This would be a major redesign for the iPhone that we haven’t seen since the iPhone X introduced the notch.
Mark Gurman refers to these models as iPhone Pro, and they will keep the current three-camera system on the back, and adopt the LiDAR sensor introduced with the 2020 iPad Pro. They could also have a slightly bigger screen than the iPhone Pro Max, which is 6.5-inches.
Next, Apple is developing a cheaper version of the HomePod that would be half the size of the current model, although it would have the same design. Apple could position this as a competitor to Amazon’s Echo Dot.
Finally, the rumored Apple Tags used to keep track of physical objects could be bundled with a leather sleeve and a keychain so it can be attached to things.
