Apple Anticipates Huge Demand, To Ship At Least Four New iPhones in 2020
Apple is hoping that demand for its devices will not be affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The company expects to ship between about 80 million 5G iPhones in 2020 even after delaying its launch till October.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and Debby Wu, here’s what to expect as per announcements this year from Apple;
— Four new iPhones with OLED screens. They are to ship in 5.4, 6.1, or 6.7 inches screens. The 6.1-inch size will have an option for both the steel “Pro” line up and a lower-end aluminum equivalent to the iPhone 11. The iPhones will reportedly have a new design with square edges. The aluminum model is expected to ship first followed by the steel Pro models and a new dark blue color option will replace the green 11 Pro.
— A new iPad Air model, that will have slim bezels. This lends credence to the images appearing recently on Twitter of a pamphlet for a new iPad Air, featuring slim bezels, and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the power button.
