I believe that those who have been paying attention to Mingmei Infinite to the present should all understand that, as Apple’s first 5G mobile phone, the iPhone 12 was late last year for many reasons. Suppliers, OEMs, system design optimization and other aspects have become incentives to hold back the launch of the iPhone 12, even if it has been on the market for two months, some models of the iPhone 12 Pro still face a long delivery time.
Almost every day after the release of the iPhone 12, there are news of Apple’s mobile phone overturning. The Bank of China has no millimeter wave antenna, small battery capacity, “environmental protection” in color and packaging, Yin and Yang screen, green screen door, signal door, broken touch door, etc. Everyone feels that the iPhone 12 is a bit “anxious” this time. The “Keyboard Man” on the Internet is very busy, but for iPhone 12 users, these small bugs will most likely be resolved through later system upgrades.
It can be said that the iPhone 12 series models have been on sale for some time. Whether you accept them or not, the advantages and disadvantages are all in front of you. Next, Apple will focus on the next-generation iPhone. According to rumors on the Internet, The iPhone 13 (named so for the time being) is indeed still very powerful in terms of functional configuration. For example, the entire system comes with a lidar scanner. The Pro series will use an LTPO panel and support 120Hz refresh rate. It will be released in more countries and regions. Wave network support, etc.
So today, let’s take a look at the apple fans who have been following me to this day by Ming Mei Infinity!
First of all, as we all know, Apple launched the new iPad Pro in March 2020, which first applied a lidar scanner. Among the current four models of the iPhone 12 series, only the Pro series has a lidar scanner function. According to reports, the iPhone 13 series also has four models, including the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max. If the iPhone 13 is equipped with a lidar scanner as standard, the configuration is indeed improved a lot.
According to Apple, a special lidar scanner uses direct time-of-flight (dToF) to measure the light reflected from up to five meters in an indoor or outdoor environment. It can detect from the photon level and can run at nanosecond speeds, opening up endless possibilities for augmented reality and a wider field. There has been news that Apple is developing AR headsets, iPhone and iPad continue to improve AR features, and may be able to build a foundation for independent AR devices in terms of content ecology in advance, or combine with AR headsets to provide a wealth of Use experience.
Lidar scanners have been expanded from the high-end version of the iPhone 12 to the entire iPhone 13 series, which is also in line with Apple’s strategy of promoting new components and new features. They often start with the high-end version and then gradually spread to more products. OLED This is the case with the screen. The iPhone X launched in 2017 began to be adopted, and then gradually expanded, to the iPhone 12 launched last year, it has been expanded to all 4 versions.
In addition, according to media reports, antenna manufacturer Qiqi will share iPhone 13 orders for 5G millimeter wave antennas with Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., and the order of the former is very substantial, almost doubled.
Apple seeks to double the supply of mmWave antennas, which may mean that iPhone 13 models will use faster mmWave technology in more regions. Countries and regions such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, China, and Japan all have growing mmWave networks and will be able to benefit from faster 5G network speeds through the iPhone 13.
In addition, the report also pointed out that Qiqi also designs antennas for laptops. Apple may add 5G connections to MacBooks through them at some point in the future, but this information is only a rumor.
Last year, only the US version of iPhone 12 supported 5G millimeter waves, and the US version of iPhone 12 also had a black “patch” on the side middle frame to enhance the transmission and reception of high-frequency signals.
Moreover, for regions where the high-frequency millimeter wave frequency band is open, the speed of 5G network will be greatly increased, which is better than the performance under Sub 6GHz.
The millimeter wave is not profitable and harmless. Its problem is also that the signal coverage is poor and it requires continuous space to deploy more small base stations. The physical characteristics determine the operator’s consideration of it, and on the other hand, it also pushes up the operator’s installation cost to a certain extent.
It is still unclear which versions of the iPhone 13 will increase support for millimeter wave 5G, but foreign media said in reports that countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom that have established support for millimeter wave 5G networks are expected to benefit from it. The iPhone 13 version of these countries is expected to support Millimeter wave 5G.
China’s millimeter wave commercial plan is relatively not very urgent. It is still in the research and testing stage, and frequency band resources have not been formally allocated.
As far as the domestic situation is concerned, it doesn’t seem to matter whether the iPhone 13 national version supports millimeter wave, but the consumer’s view is that I can use it, but you can’t have it. Therefore, I still hope that the Bank of China version of the iPhone 13 series can be provided in one stop.
And iPhone 13 will support the WiFi 6E standard, which can provide faster wireless network speeds. Analysts from Barclays Bank reported that iPhone 13 will support Wi-Fi 6E in the 6GHz frequency band. This will reduce interference with other devices in the home.
In addition to faster network speeds, Wi-Fi 6E also supports lower latency, which should also bring better performance. In addition, Wi-Fi 6E devices can use 160MHz for high-bandwidth activities such as augmented reality. Broadcom, the mobile Wi-Fi 6E chip maker, called the 6GHz band “the most disruptive gospel for Wi-Fi users in the past 20 years.”
According to previous reports, iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 use LTPS panels with a screen refresh rate of 60Hz, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max use LTPO panels with a screen refresh rate of 120Hz; ToF lenses will be used to replace the 3D structured light module, “Liu Hai “It is expected to be further reduced; WiFi 6E technology will be used to bring a better network experience; soft board battery technology will be used, which can accommodate larger batteries.
It is widely known that these modems are extreme battery consumers, and it is probably one of the reasons why Apple chose not to use the 120Hz panel on the iPhone 12 series. The report mentioned that Samsung and LG will be responsible for supplying these OLED screens, but it did not mention BOE anywhere. Earlier, it was reported that the Chinese display manufacturer will begin shipping OLED panels for the iPhone 12 series, and will also equip a dedicated production line for the iPhone 13 series in the first half of 2021.
This is equivalent to the variable refresh rate technology used by some Android phones, which can be switched in time in different usage scenarios to achieve more power saving and extended battery life. It is worth mentioning that Apple uses the LTPO technology screen on the Apple Watch Series 5, which achieves a long battery life of up to 18 hours under the always-on display. If the iPhone 13 can also use this screen, it means that it can have lower power consumption performance in screen display or some low refresh rate usage scenarios, and it may also alleviate the iPhone’s long-term battery life problem.
An industry insider mentioned in the report said that due to strong iPhone sales, Apple has high hopes for next year’s models and there should not be any production delays. So we may see iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max shipped in September this year instead of October.
In addition, today Mingmei Wuxian also has to mention that Apple’s AR glasses are also very exciting.
Over the years, we have been hearing rumors about Apple’s new augmented reality headset, but it’s still unclear when this product will be launched. Although some rumors have pointed out that it will be launched in 2020, this has not happened. And now a new rumor indicates that Apple’s AR glasses will be officially launched this year.
In early 2018, Apple began discussions with companies that manufacture components for AR and VR devices, including EMagin, which produces OLED display components for this type of head-mounted display. Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple plans to start mass production of its first augmented reality product between 2019 and 2020, but he also warned that since the project has not been finalized by then, the timetable may change.
In the same report, Guo also mentioned that Apple’s first-generation AR headset will rely heavily on the iPhone, just like the first-generation Apple Watch. The analyst said that all Apple AR glasses data will be rendered and processed on the iPhone, and the new device will work as an AR screen.
In the end, these upgrades are of course the apple fans love to see, but if you look forward to the iPhone 13, you will be disappointed, because after the iPhone 12 no longer comes with a charging head and earphones, the iPhone 13 package is very likely Nothing except a bare metal.
According to Apple’s questionnaire information, have you used the following items included in the iPhone 12 Pro Max package? Including SIM card pin, iPhone welcome guide, USB/C to lightning cable, Apple sticker.
If Mingmei has unlimited choices, the card pin will be used once when changing the phone, and the data cable will definitely be used. Stickers and welcome guides are all lost directly after opening the box. If Guofen has a data cable in his hands, it is estimated that the included data cable will not be used.
Looking at it this way, Apple can cut off the important charger, so other less necessary accessories can also be cut off. Just keep a mobile phone. The point is that Apple has not returned the cost savings to users, which is most unacceptable to users.
In the end, if the above revelations are all true, would you think “Thirteen Fragrance”? Of course, the iPhone 12 is also very good.
