This Insider Review will focus on Apple's forward-looking developments. We will also tell you about the Motorola gadget and the specifications of the unannounced device from HONOR.
An insider told why the iPhone 12 will be expensive
In September, Apple introduced a number of its new products. The most expensive device among them was the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Recently it became clear that the prices for it will not become the highest in the history of this enterprise. There are all the prerequisites to raise the price level even higher.
Well-known insider and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is sure of this. He published a report on the results of his research online and explained why a possible increase in prices for the upcoming iPhone 12.
In short, everything is based on the use of new production methods and composite materials for enclosures in the company's promising developments. This will lead to an increase in the cost of products.
The designers of the American developer, when creating the iPhone 12, will start from the external data of the iPhone 4. For some reason, the analyst is firmly convinced of this. He also claims that some modifications of the new smartphone will be equipped with 5G modems. This is another reason for the increase in prices for them, since the company has not yet established independent production in this industry. It will purchase modules from a friendly supplier Qualcomm.
iPhone 11 Pro Max currently costs over $ 1,099 in America. Min-Chi Kuo reckons the iPhone 12 will start at $ 1,200.
He also said that at the beginning of next year, the iPhone SE 2 will be announced, which belongs to the budget segment. It will be able to work so far only in fourth generation networks.
Apple's new stylus will get a feedback feature
When designing styluses, it is almost impossible to simulate feedback in them. The main reason for this is that these products are equipped with low capacity batteries. The compactness of these devices also plays a role here.
However, there have been rumors that the latest generation of Apple Pencils will feature physical feedback. The magnetic field generated by the iPad will help with this.
This is stated in a new patent from the company describing a device "with external magnetic influence." A magnetic component is integrated into the new stylus, which will begin to actively interact with the corresponding fields of the tablet.
Experts believe that an ordinary coil with a core will act as this component. It will be embedded in the iPad to create a magnetic field of a certain intensity. It is also possible to use the option that does not imply internal integration, but the installation of an external source of the magnetic field. The principle of operation here is similar to that existing in docking stations.
It is not yet known when the announcement of the product created in accordance with the intentions of Apple specialists will take place.
