Apple’s iPhone line could be changing in 2020 with four new iPhone 12 models released in the fall and a surprise iPhone before.
Apple can break with tradition and launch four new iPhone 12 models in 2020, according to the latest reports. But let’s not forget the rumored iPhone SE 2, which could raise the total number of new iPhones to five in 2020.
In this week’s Apple Core summary, we also hear rumors that TouchID will return thanks to a new on-screen fingerprint reader from Qualcomm.
How many iPhone models will there be?
According to JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee, Apple will launch four new iPhone 12 models in the fall of 2020: a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch phones and a 6.7-inch phone. All of them will have OLED screens.
These size predictions were also correlated this week by Ming-Chi Kuowho believes that the current 5.8-inch size of the iPhone 11 Pro may be disappearing. Then, the models of 5.4 inches and one of 6.1 inches will be the low-end devices, presumably called iPhone 12. Then, the most expensive phones will be the other iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max of 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, respectively.
Dual camera settings are expected to remain the same on normal iPhone 12 models.
All new iPhone 12 models are expected to include the rumored bells and whistles we’ve heard before, including a new design and 5G support. However, the report says that high-end phones (12 Pro and 12 Pro Max) will receive 5G mmWave support and a triple camera array that has what Chatterjee calls a “3D detection in the world” camera, which we assume is Refer to The flight time sensor to help capture depth information.
Normal iPhone 12 models are expected to have dual cameras and support the sub-6Ghz spectrum instead of mmWave.
Then there is the second coming of the iPhone SE, which brings the total number of iPhones expected in 2020 to five.
Kuo’s report also believes that Lightning support will be removed from the iPhone 2021 range.
The return of TouchID
More reports this week say Apple will use Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner on at least one of the new iPhones released next year, although that deadline could be delayed until 2021.
We’ve already seen many Android phones like the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 with Qualcomm’s on-screen fingerprint readers. This week, Qualcomm presented a 30×20 mm screen reader called 3D Sonic Max, which gives us some clues about what we might expect if Apple uses this technology on the new iPhone.

The 3D Sonic Max is 17 times larger than the current Galaxy S10 version, and phone manufacturers may require two fingers for authentication, which will make it more secure.
Mini LED comes to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
A few weeks ago we discovered that the iPad Pro 2020 with the new A14X chip could be receiving a new display technology called mini LED, which could also appear on the 16-inch MacBook Pro in the fall.
With 1/100 the size of a traditional LED backlight, mini LEDs allow thinner and lighter screens than current screens. What we do know about the mini LED is that, like OLED screens, the new technology offers a wide range of colors, high contrast, great dynamic range and deep blacks.
The latest Ming-Chi Kuo report also predicts that the General Interface Solution (GIS) will be one of the providers involved. So look at this space.
