iPhone 13 : the beginning of the end of the Lightning ?


The iPhone 12 next fall is sometimes described by the rumors as a model of breakthrough in terms of design (basically, it would pull to the lines of the iPad Pro and the iPhone 4) but his successor seems to be gone to leave a mark also.


According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in the beginning of December, his cabinet colleagues Barclays who rely on the withdrawal of the port Lightning, it is at least 1 model of iPhone, they say in a note feels to MacRumors.


Ming-Chi Kuo spoke of a “experience fully wireless ” — which means, not a replacement of the USB-C. Barclays does not say anything else, and, therefore, expects that Apple removes it from the box the EarPods wired.


Purpose, as it takes much of headphones at one time or another, this refers to the rumor of the end of November in Digitimes that suggested that Apple plans to include AirPods. Except that the site taiwanese saw this for the year 2020.


One can be skeptical for a schedule as close to, these earphones will sell itself and as a port Lightning is there, why provide AirPods and their case load ?


In 2021, if the connection port disappears, even partially in the range, Apple could follow the example of Google or OnePlus selling their smartphones without headphones. Except in Europe, in order to comply with the legal obligation to provide a kit pedestrian. So this is not a very practical solution for a brand of the stature of Apple.


Back on the iPhone 12 in 2020, Barclays speaks of an improvement for Face ID, without specifying the nature. If it will be on the bottom (angle of detection of faces larger, for example) and/or the shape (thinning of the notch).


Finally, the office speaks again of 6 Gb of RAM vs. 4 Gb today, and a sensor time of flight for the back camera and no further interpretation of the volumes and their distance.
