In recent days important details have been known about the new Apple terminals for this year. Some iPhone 12 (Pro in this case) that will significantly modify the design that we have been enjoying over the last three generations, those born in the heat of the September 2017 launch of the iPhone X.
The fact is that the first clue of this new design appeared in a kind of mockups Within a beta of iOS 14 to which some media had access, and which showed three differentiating elements with respect to the iPhone 11 Pro: on the one hand the presence of a notch smaller, on the other the camera, which houses a new sensor and finally the edges, that go back to the past as if it were a tribute to the old iPhone 4, 4s, 5 and 5s.

All that information, and some other source, has served so that both Max Weinbach and EverythingApplePro have launched to affirm that we are before the design of this year’s iPhone 12 Pro, the smartphones that could delay its release until the months of October or November due to the coronavirus.
And as we have mentioned before, the most obvious thing that we can verify with these 3D models is that the screen is winning the battle by notch, which is getting smaller, surely, because Apple has managed to condense all the sensors into a smaller space that have to do with the proximity detector, the headset for calls and the famous Face ID.
Strange, anyway, that Apple decides to dwarf this notch while figuring out how to remove it altogether, since over the past three years it has become a differentiating, characteristic and defining element of its terminals. Even so, we will have to accept this leak and think that they are going to follow this path.
The edges also undergo a major change because They go back to the designs of 2010, when the iPhone 4 hit the market: straight lines win (barely 7.39 mm.) and leave behind the many years of rounded shapes that arrived in 2014 with the iPhone 6. Be that as it may, let’s hope they don’t repeat the mistake of antennagate a decade ago, which forced Apple to give away cases to all owners of their phones to the monumental anger of Steve Jobs.
And finally the camera module that will keep three sensors like the current iPhone 11 Pro, but adding a fourth that will be called LiDAR, identical to the one released by the iPad Pro this year that will be responsible for making its augmented reality much more real and immersive.
