Exciting changes are in store for upcoming iPhone models. If the latest leaks are to be believed, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has bold predictions for the future of Face ID. Changes start with the iPhone lineup this fall, which noticeably shrinks the width of the display notch. The black display notch houses necessary components for Face ID, including the TrueDepth camera.
The specs haven't changed, but Apple has moved closer to completing the rainbow with its iPhone 12 lineup. Both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are now available in a "stunning" purple finish. Apple also launched a new MagSafe Leather Case, and a Leather Sleeve. Colors for these MagSafe accessories include Amethyst, Cantaloupe, Capri Blue, or Pistachio. Apple showed off the latest colorways at its "Spring Loaded" special media event.
Only days from now, Apple puts on its Spring Loaded special media event. Scheduled to kick off on April 20 at 1 PM Eastern time (10 AM Pacific), the event will be a pre-recorded video stream from Apple Park. The logo for the upcoming feature harkens back to the classic rainbow Apple logo, albeit with a twist. No official details have been released, but leaks and rumors point to an exciting show.
So what will Apple reveal in the coming days?
Apple announced it will repeat its all-online format for the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this year. The event takes place from June 7 to 11, with no cost to developers. Apple will deliver sessions, labs, and product announcements throughout the week to showcase the company's latest technologies, tools, and platforms.
Apple may be looking to expand its 40 percent share of the smartwatch market with a new model known as the Explorer Edition. This version of the Apple Watch would have a rugged design with additional protection for extreme sports. A rubberized exterior could increase impact resistance, preventing damage to the outer case.
