Apple might be working on advanced features of its iPhone 12’s successor. Rumors and speculations provided the public with believable information regarding the tech giant manufacturer’s upcoming smartphone.
He is also quite knowledgeable when it comes to anticipating the tech giant’s upcoming products and new features, including the soon-to-be-launched iPhone 13. The analyst added that the company is aggressively testing a vapor chamber thermal system that could be used in the upcoming smartphones.
He claimed that this new feature could first appear on Apple’s iPhone Pro flagships. The new technology is specifically designed to handle the higher thermal output that comes along with the iPhone’s increasingly strong computing power and 5G chipset’s inclusion.
Kuo said that the “latest survey indicates that Apple is still aggressively testing the VC for iPhone.”
The Apple expert added that they “believe that high-end iPhone models need to be equipped with VC for higher thermal requirements due to their stronger computing power and faster 5G connection speeds in the future.”
Will iPhone 13 have the new feature?
Kuo explained that the main reason that Apple hasn’t adopted the VC yet is because of its reliability test results that cannot meet the company’s high requirements or expectations. However, he noted that they are still optimistic about the new feature’s reliability improvement schedule.
They are currently expecting that at least-high-end iPhone models would have the new advanced technology. Although this is the case, Kuo didn’t specify if vapor chamber thermal tech would be available in iPhone 13, but there’s still a high chance.
On the other hand, one of the most noticeable rumors is iPhone 13’s release date. The smartphone is expected to arrive in September. Compared to the iPhone 12‘s release, which was pushed back into October and November because of design delays caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic, many analysts are confident that the upcoming device will be reverted back to September.
There’s also a high chance that iPhone 13’s current name would be changed. Since the number 13 is superstitiously popular, the tech giant manufacturer could use “next-gen iPhone” or “iPhone 12S.”
It’s also possible, though perhaps unlikely, that Apple might call its next-gen smartphone the “iPhone 14.”
iPhone manufacturer’s allegedly prototyping foldable iPhone screens
Aside from VC, Apple also seems to be prototyping foldable iPhone screens and Touch ID, which could return to the current iPhone under the display. The initial prototypes sound similar to the foldable screens.
These displays were also used in Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones and Motorola devices. Apple said that it is looking to develop foldable screens with a mostly-invisible hinge that could unfold to around the size of the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Speculations also stated that several screen sizes are currently being discussed by the company. Although this is the case, Apple didn’t specify any interest in making a foldable phone.
