Rumors about Apple eliminating the 3D touch in the iPhone 11 continue to come. A new report from DigiTimes this week, referring to industry sources, suggests that manufacturers who build touch devices will make less money this year, as Apple switches to lower components.
But at this point, it is 2020's iPhone models that have already begun to steal the light. With two months to go to the next iPhone launch, we are already bombarded by rumors of their successors.
2020 iPhones are rumored to come in three sizes: a smaller 5.4-inch model that replaces the current 5.8-inch, the same 6.1-inch capability as the XR and a larger 6.7-inch Max -version. And all three will have OLED screens this time.
The report states that at least two of the three models will be equipped with a 5G connection, if not all three. That would mean that the 6.1-inch model would come in both 5G and non-5G options, the latter would be cheaper.
MacDailyNews Take: We love the reputation sizes: 5.8, 6.1, and 6.7-inch will provide a fine selection of physical sizes that should satisfy most, if not all, of the market for and iPhone.
