Big changes coming to the 2020 iPhone

Phones
2020 will bring big changes to the iPhone and we're still finding some hidden treasures in Apple's betas. Let's get right to the core of this week's Apple news and rumors. [MUSIC] 2020 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the iPhone and now we're hearing Apple may go even bigger with this lineup and smaller. Let me explain. This week longtime Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo cited in Mac Rumors Said apple will change the size of the screen in this year's line up, so it would move to a 5.4 inch, 6.7 inch and 6.1 inch display meaning the 2020 [UNKNOWN] sequel would actually shrink from 5.8 inches. To 5.4 inches while the XS Max would grow from 6.5 inches to an even more massive 6.7 inch display. Now this coincides with what we'd already heard from DigiTimes a few months back, so the fact that it's getting repeated is a pretty good sign that it Could be true. By the looks of it, Apple's not gonna change the design on the 2019 iPhones very much. So 2020 might be the year to wait for if you're looking for an all new iPhone. Some other rumors had said that they're going to be all OLED including that 10R sequel. And maybe some flat edges on the side like the new iPad Pro design. Maybe that smaller notch potentially some different materials on the back. Most importantly though, 2020 is also the year Apple's rumoured to be making that switch to 5G. Thanks to that recent agreement reached with Qualcomm after a lengthy legal dispute, according to the report though only two of the models the I and n ones would have the 5G connectivity so no 5G for the [UNKNOWN] sequel. Also no affordable iPhone in the world's for 2020 at least not that we're hearing yet, and it could be the Apples are waiting for 2021 to launch affordable iPhones or it's just. Scratching that idea altogether and learning from Samsung's mistakes. With two developers betas out in the wild and a public beta release coming soon, there's still a lot more to discover about Apple's new software updates. that will be coming to your Apple devices in September. But the second developers beta in iOS helps clear up at least one of the questions that we had after the release of the first one. What happens to 3D Touch. So let me explain. Last week we talked about it because in the first developers beta. The three detach functionality had been replaced by a long press or haptic touch like functionality leading us to believe that Apple might be gearing up to remove this feature all together from the 2019 iPhone. Lineup, like what it did with the Iphone 10R. Good news for all you 3D Touch lovers out there though, and I know there's a lot of you, is that it's back in the second beta in its full functionality as pointed out by Apple Insider. So, yeah, lastly was just me and a bunch of other people on the internet, reading way too much into the beta. It happens, sorry. The other interesting change about the second beta is that it's now available via an over the air update. So in the past it had only been available via the direct update and then an iTunes restore. This one [UNKNOWN] max. The highlights on the other hand haven't changed much Between betas, of course. You still have dark mode in IOS 13. And those video editing tools in the photos app. Better file support and multitasking in iPad OS. And the list goes on. And now onto the watchOS front. We know that the watchOS 6 is going to make the Apple Watch even more independent from the iPhone. This, because it's bringing a stand-alone App Store to the Apple Watch. And now the second beta release provides even more proof of this. According to Mac rumors the second beta makes it possible to get over the air software updates directly on to the apple watch. So now under the settings menu in general there will be a new option called software update just like the iPhone except now it's Directly onto the watch. Before, you had to go to the iPhone and download it there first and then transfer it to the Apple Watch. The other exciting software change coming to the Apple Watch is that you'll soon be able to remove Native apps from the Apple Watch. You can currently delete third party apps pretty easily by just long pressing from the app menu. But now it will apply to some of Apple's own pre installed apps according to TechCrunch. So I'm gonna say goodbye to the breath app Finely, for mocking me about not being zen enough. I know how to breathe. I don't need reminders. I appreciate the effort. This is also great news for all you dude's out there who don't want the cycle app cluttering your app tray once that launches in September. So now for the question What feature are you most excited to try out in September? Dark mode in iOS, voice memos on the Apple Watch, the Cycle app, I know you want it. Video editing, it can be anything, from watch OS to Mac OS, but you can only pick one. So Leave your picks on the comment section below tweet text smoke signals, you know the drill. This week we learned an important lesson about reading into the beta's but that didn't stop us from placing our best guesses about this restore screen from last week. I asked you guys whether you thought the new screen and iOS 13 beta hinted at a change from [UNKNOWN] To a lightning port on the next iPhone, or if it was a USB C to lightning fast charger in the box of the new phones. MrArgonlegends points out that there is a simple arrow which point to a Mac no plus. So the iPhone will be shipped with lightning to USBC and not with a USBA cable. Robert Moore says since the new airpods use lightning cable I would bet that Apple will keep lightning for this year. Airpods 3 and iPhone 2020 will certainly switch to USBC. And this one seems to be the consensus among most of you. This is actually referring to that fast charging cable, however, there were some optimists in the bunch like ayaan haryani, sorry if I mispronounced your name, whose. Says it is not a USB type C to lightning cable because the old recovery screen shows a lightning connector and there are no lightning connectors on a laptop. The connector that appears on the device is for the device itself. USB type C is coming on the iPhones for sure. Thanks again to everyone who sent in their comments this week. And don't forget. Tell me about that one feature that you're most excited to try out in Apple's new software updates. Next week, we're going to take a closer look at some of these features, so come back for more Apple Core. [ELECTRONIC MUSIC]
