Apple’s iPhone 12 Design Has Now Landed (And It’s Quite Worth Checking Out)

Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 12 was rumoured to grasp design cues from the latest iPad, and a newly-posted video shows how precise those speculations were. YouTube channel EverythingApplePro gave an up-close peek at a physical render using a 3D-printed model of the unreleased device. The 12-minute-long video breaks down the 12’s features, including a 6.7-inch display – the largest produced by an iPhone yet. 

As predicted, the new models design borrows cues from the latest iPad Pro. In fact, it’s literally described as “the pro iPhone.” Further features include a three-way camera composition and LiDAR scanner, a new Smart Connector, and its surprisingly agreeable square frame. 

It should be clarified that the leak is based on a CAD that is 70 percent complete.

Covid-19 Holds A Knock-On Effect On The iPhone 12 Release

Apple is allegedly delaying production of the iPhone 12 by a month, according to the Wall Street Journal.

And while that doesn’t essentially imply a push-back in the release date, it’s likely that the new handset will be in much shorter supply down the track. 

The current pandemic has inevitably caused grievous disruptions to the global supply chains, and according to “people familiar with changes”, disruptions will impact accessibility later in the year. 

Thanks to mass manufacturing over the summer months, Apple is usually able to unveil its new iPhone in September and start distributing devices before the end of the month. Insiders have indicated that the brunt of the pandemic will be seen later in the year with a more restricted supply of the flagship model. 

Setbacks aside, the new iPhone is still one of the most anticipated announcements of the year from the company.
