UK users with any of the iPhone 11 series or iPhone SE are able to trade it in after 12-months, with now early upgrade fee on Vodafone.
It looks like someone may have just let slip the date of an Apple event in September, assumed to be when the iPhone 12 will be unveiled.
A 5g ‘iPhone 12’ is expected in September, but some analysts think that early in 2021 a cheaper, 4G, version could be made available.
Apple CFO Luca Maestri confirmed that we’re going to have to wait just a little longer for the iPhone 12 after COVID-19 enforced hold-ups.
Rene Ritchie has been covering personal technology for over a decade. He currently hosts his own YouTube channel where he provides news analysis and insight on Apple and related technologies and culture. He also co-hosts MacBreak Weekly on the TWiT network and writes a column every Monday for iMore. He is the former Editor-in-Chief of iMore.
Rene and I discussed an incredible range of Apple topics: the MBP’s awful 720p FaceTime camera, the aging iMac design, the future of iMac Pro, the Butterfly keyboard, Rene’s enthusiasm for Apple and the trustworthiness of the company. I also got to know Rene better as we chatted about growing up with Macs, his love of Apple Watch bands, Pokémon and years of studying martial arts. Rene finished with several tips for video podcasters.
A report today suggests that the iPhone 12 could have a flat design similar to the iPhone 5 with stainless steel edges.
People have been speculating for a while about what the coronavirus outbreak means for global supply chains, not least Apple’s. It is all based on the assumption there has to be an iPhone in 2020. Over on iMore Bryan M. Wolfe says there doesn’t. It’s a view I’m increasingly sympathetic with – the world is in turmoil, does Apple really want to be waving shiny new devices around right now?
There’s nothing wrong with the iPhone 11. More importantly, with unemployment rising, now is not the best time for the company to release a new device intended for the masses. Instead, the company should use its first online WWDC conference to announce splashy updates for iOS, iPadOS, and other systems. Then, when this crisis (finally) ebbs, Apple should launch the iPhone 12 in 2021. I understand Apple just released a new iPad Pro. However, the line hadn’t been updated in nearly two years, so a refresh was justified. Same too for the 2020 MacBook Air, which includes the company’s well-received new Backlit Magic Keyboard.
With more people working at home these days, it’s essential to have an affordable, high-quality, secure, and reasonably powerful computer. Apple’s new MacBook Air fills the bill.
