We are all waiting for the official arrival of Apple’s first 5G series, the iPhone 12 series. While we wait for official reports, a new leak reveals more about this upcoming series. In recent times, there have been speculations that the iPhone 12 series will use a new Lightning to USB-C charging cable with a woven design. A few months ago, we saw some images of this charging cable. Now, we have a new set of images of the Lightning to USB-C charging cable.
The picture shows the USB-C to Lightning charging cable, which has an obvious woven design. The woven design may be more durable than the standard rubber-coated charging cable. There are reports that eight silver contacts of the new charging cable are made of rhodium-plated ruthenium material. These materials are more resistant to corrosion. In addition to the woven design, this charging cable may be more resistant to damage after long-term use.
For iPhone users, a more durable design will be a welcome change, because there have been many complaints about the poor quality of Apple’s charging cables over the years. The iPhone has never had a woven charging cable. However, we have seen braided cables for MacBook Pro and HomePod. Apple’s new USB-C to Lightning braided charging cable may be the only accessory for iPhone 12. Many rumors say that this year’s new models will not include a power adapter or EarPods in the box. Instead, Apple may independently sell a new 20W power adapter.
SPECULATIONS ON THE APPLE IPHONE 12 SERIES
Rumors say that Apple will release four iPhone 12s this year. This includes the “budget” 5.4-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and 6.8-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. There are also reports that all four models will use OLED displays and support 5G. These will be the first set of 5G smartphones from Apple. The low-end models will use dual rear cameras and 4GB RAM, while the Pro models should come with a triple rear camera setup. The Pro models will also come with 6GB of RAM and a 120Hz ProMotion display.
There are also reports that the iPhone 12 series may have a 4G version. According to the report, this smartphone has a 5.4-inch and a 6.1-inch LCD model. They both support the 4G LTE network, A14 Bionic chip, built-in 4GB RAM, and a dual 12MP camera. In terms of price, while the 5.4 inches cost $549, the 6.1 inches will sell for $649. The $549 starting price seems to be a good deal considering that last year’s iPhone 11 has a $699 starting price. This means that the iPhone 12 4G is about $150 cheaper than its predecessor. We will have to wait a few more weeks for the official announcement of these devices.
