According to Apple renowned analyst Ming-Chio Kuo, the Cupertino company will make a controversial move this year by skipping the in-box accessories of its iPhone 12 series. There’s still no confirmation regarding this, but a set of images surfaced today revealing Apple’s alleged new braided Lighting to USB-C cables. The leakster @Lovetodream is giving us our first look at the new cables. They come in black and white colors, two traditional colors.
Apple usually offers a black Lightning cable with its 2017 iMac Pro which serves for charging the included Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2. It always included white cables with all its iPhone models. Recent speculations state that the new Lightning cables will measure 1.05m just like the current in-box one but their diameter will be significantly larger at 3.04mm. The main change is that the white color option is missing the rubber tubing below the connector. The Black option, in counterpart, has the tubing and also appears to have a matte finish on top. There is still no confirmation that these cables are legit or if Apple will bundle them with the iPhone 12 series.
While the black color seems interesting to match possible black iPhone models, this variant can also be meant for future iPad devices.
Apple iPhone 12 models will come with upgraded camera sensors
The analyst recently revealed that iPhone users will probably look at a new upgrade in terms of camera performance. As the newer iPhone 12 models will pack new sensors. Apple has included high-quality Semco and Sunny Optical lenses into its supply chain this year. For those unaware, Semco is a Korean-based company. Sunny Optical, on the other hand, comes from China. The new models are likely to sport new lenses from these companies. According to Kuo, they will deliver better overall performance and improve the Auto-Focus functionality. Moreover, Semco’s ball-based voice coil motor in the lenses will likely replace the current spring-based solution.
Kuo also gave a piece of important information. According to him, Semco will likely manufacture the periscope-like telephoto lenses that will be used in 2022 iPhones. While this sounds interesting, it’s a shame to hear that Apple will take two years to finally adopt the periscope technology known due to its insane zoom capabilities.
With the new iPhone models nearing the shores, we’ll probably hear more about them in the coming weeks.
