The iPhone 12 will sport an all new flat design in 2020, inspired by the iPad: 4 new 5G models and Apple Tags also in the offing
According to sources close to Bloomberg, 2020's Apple iPhone 12 series will feature an overhauled design inspired by current generation iPads. This aligns with an earlier report made by analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, claiming that the 2020 Apple iPhone lineup would feature substantial design changes.
According to Bloomberg's sources, the new iPhones will have flat edges made of stainless steel, hearkening back to the famed iPhone 4S. The frame will also have sharper corners reminiscent of current-gen iPad Pros.
The Bloomberg report also confirms a number of earlier rumors about the 2020 iPhone lineup. Apple Tags for object tracking will are set to debut this year. Also, we will likely see as many as four 5G iPhone models this year.
The current generation of iPhones brought a much-needed improvement to battery life. The iPhone 11 Pro Max did excellently in our longevity testing. However, they were iterative updates in most other areas. It will be interesting to see what Apple has in store this year, design-wise.
