I believe that all the apple powders who have been paying attention to Mingmei Infinite to this day should know that in recent years, Apple has always used toothpaste-style innovation to challenge the bottom line of users. Although in terms of results, the new iPhone can still achieve good sales in the market, it cannot be denied that because of the decline in innovation, Apple’s mobile phone retention rate and reputation have declined to varying degrees. After the iPhone 12 went on sale, many problems were exposed. At present, it has only achieved a 93% favorable rate, ranking bottom in the Apple camp.
According to Mingmei’s eighth law of infinity, as long as Apple releases a new iPhone every year, everyone will pin their hopes on the new phone next year. Yes, wait for the party to never admit defeat. According to the development of the plot, Mingmei knows that many people are already waiting for the iPhone 13.
Not just in recent days, news about the core configuration of the iPhone 13 series next year has also surfaced, especially the official product questionnaire, which also revealed the direction of improvement of some new phones.
In the questionnaire, Apple asked users about their satisfaction with Face ID. If they are not satisfied, the questionnaire will give several options and ask users to choose reasons, including security and privacy issues, slow unlocking, low recognition rate, etc. Users can also Fill in by yourself.
And this may reveal that next year iPhone 13 will finally start with Henggu’s unchanged “bangs”.
As we all know, Apple’s “bangs” integrate several important components. Infrared cameras, flood light sensing elements, distance sensors (ToF), ambient light sensors, etc. are all closely related to Face ID, so they have always occupied a lot of local.
And if Face ID is cancelled, it means that these sensors will be useless, and there is no need for “bangs”. Of course, how to hide the front camera depends on the progress of Apple’s “under-screen camera” technology.
In addition, in the questionnaire, Apple also asked users whether to use the included USB-C to Lightning data cable.
Regarding the decision to cancel the data cable, analysts speculate that canceling the included data cable will stimulate the sales of Apple’s new product Magsafe magnetic wireless charger to some extent, or pave the way for future non-porous iPhones.
Recently, Jon Prosser, a well-known overseas broke the news, said that at least one of the 2021 iPhones (possibly the iPhone 13 series) has a non-porous design.
If you really cancel the charging port and replace it with a wireless charging, there is no problem if the power can be increased. The remaining 120Hz display, a stronger A15, a more stable 5G network and a stronger camera are all available to us. The point I am more concerned about is quite exciting overall. But the only thing I care about is the battery. If the standard version of the battery can start at least 3000+, it will indeed deal with the phrase “Thirteen Fragrance”. In this case, would you choose?
In addition, according to the South Korean website The Elec report, among the four iPhone 13 models to be launched next year, the Pro series models will use low-power LTPO technology OLED displays, which pave the way for a 120Hz refresh rate. At the same time, its renewal performance adds more room for optimization.
In fact, Apple was the first to use an OLED display with LTPO technology on Apple Watch Series 5. Thanks to the adoption of this technology, Apple Watch Series 5 has achieved excellent battery life improvement performance, and the screen is also the first time. Do not extinguish the display permanently.
LTPO (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) is a kind of OLED display panel substrate that is different from the current LTPS (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon). It has an extra layer of oxide than the latter. The purpose is to reduce the energy consumption required to activate the pixels, thereby reducing The overall power consumption when the screen is working saves power for the mobile phone. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is an LTPO AMOLED panel.
For today’s mobile phones, the screen is always a big consumer of electricity, although OLED screens are now enough to save electricity. If the LPTO OLED screen can be used on the new iPhone 13, and the 120Hz refresh rate can be upgraded on this basis, with the support of adaptive refresh rate (ProMotion), it should be able to maintain the power consumption performance of this generation.
In other words, the iPhone 13 series of mobile phones will support 120Hz high refresh rate screens. Of course, it is just breaking the news now, not necessarily accurate.
In fact, this year when Apple did not release the iPhone12 series of mobile phones, there was news that the iPhone12Pro series models would be equipped with 120Hz high-speed brushes, but it was unfortunately missed in the end. It is also very possible for the iPhone 13 series to support 120Hz high brush next year, after all, it can bring a better experience to apple fans.
In addition to bringing a smoother operating experience in the game scene, upgrading to 120Hz can also make screen touch operations smoother in daily browsing. Therefore, starting from 2019, Android models will gradually transition to 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rate. The refresh rate has also become another standard for flagship phones. So judging from this rumor, the iPhone 13 has no reason not to follow up.
Of course, the performance will undoubtedly choose the latest A15 chip, manufactured with TSMC’s improved 5nm process, and equipped with Qualcomm’s latest X60 baseband. These upgrades are a real improvement in the user’s daily experience.
In fact, according to the current news of iPhone13, this is the iPhone that “apple fans” want. On the one hand, it can remove the bangs that affect the visual experience, and on the other hand, it can be equipped with a high-brush screen and a powerful 5G baseband. Where the actual user experience has been improved, Apple has finally understood the user’s mind. On the other hand, this year’s iPhone 12 does not have these advantages. The screen does not have a high brush, the battery life is not good, the bangs are still that big, and the A14 chip and even the signal improvement are not as obvious as imagined.
It is worth mentioning that in addition to hardware upgrades, the iPhone 13 will also castrate physical buttons such as the power button and volume button, as well as the charging port. This also means that in addition to the no longer attached chargers and headphones, the only remaining charging cable will also be castrated. In this way, there is only one mobile phone left in the iPhone 13 box. As for why this is done, don’t ask, ask is to contribute to environmental protection.
In addition, due to the delayed release of the iPhone 12 series, Apple’s latest “fourth quarter” financial report shows that their revenue performance is not optimistic. The delay of the new iPhone release this year will have such a big impact on Apple. Will it be postponed? Obviously not. Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that next year’s iPhone 13 will not be postponed to October like the iPhone 12 series, but will be released and sold in September as usual.
Since most Apple employees work from home this year, the epidemic has also affected Apple’s component suppliers around the world, causing the mass production of the iPhone 12 to be postponed to September and the release time for one month.
After the release of the iPhone 12, the four models still need to be launched in batches. The two iPhone 12 Pro models are still out of stock on Apple’s official website, and the delivery time will still take several weeks.
In order to avoid repeating the same mistakes, next year’s iPhone 13 Apple has already begun preparations early.
Not only that, Guo Mingqi also predicted that the capacity utilization rate of Apple supplier TSMC’s A14 chip will drop from 100% to 80% in the first quarter of 2021. This is mainly affected by seasonal factors, and this part of the production capacity will be It is used to produce A15 chips built on a 5nm process. The analyst also said that demand for the iPhone is still strong, especially for the iPhone12Pro model. Due to the shortage of camera-related parts, Apple’s shipments are expected to increase.
Finally, to sum up, if Apple makes major changes to the iPhone 13 series next year, it may start with “no bangs” and “no interface”; of course, compared to the evolution of iPhone in previous years, this change seems to be a big leap forward.
However, Mingmei believes that in the face of the Android camp’s steadily pressing force, major improvements to the iPhone may be coming. For the iPhone 13, many netizens do not plan to do “wait for the party” anymore. If it is really good, let’s get the final word! Whether or not the iPhone 13 will smell fragrant next year, let’s wait and see!
