Apple plans to launch the next generation of the iPhone 12 series this fall, and the latest reports have confirmed that the four versions of the iPhone 12 come without an Apple wired headset in the box content.
Apple is moving to push iPhone users to use and purchase AirPods wireless headphones, and in the context of achieving this, a new report confirmed the leaks that came at the beginning of this year, about the absence of Apple’s wired headset from the content of the box for upcoming releases.
The AirPods Wireless Headset is very popular among iPhone users already, but Apple is seeking to increase the sales of the company’s versions of the wireless headphones, especially with Apple’s plans to launch the AirPods Studio wireless soon.
Expectations indicate that Apple is returning to the same strategy that was used with the launch of the iPhone 7,
where Apple removed the 3.5 mm headphones from this version to push users to choose wireless headphones and included a wired headset in the content of the box to connect to the phone via the lightning port.
On the other hand, some reports indicated that Apple had already completed engineering tests on the iPhone 12 series of phones at the end of June,
some reports indicate that Apple plans to start production in July, in preparation for the official announcement of new releases in September.
We could also see a new design for Apple’s phones, one that hearkens back to the iPhone 5’s flat edges and more squared-off look. And there should be a smaller notch, too.

- iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 11: The biggest changes to expect
The iPhone 12 isn’t expected until the fall
no one’s quite sure when — but here’s everything we know so far about Apple’s next smartphones.
Latest iPhone 12 news (updated June 18)
- Rather than a ship with iOS 14, the iPhone 12 could actually see the debut of iPhoneOS — Apple’s rebranded mobile software.
- The iPhone 12 Pro Max may be the only model to receive a LiDAR sensor to supplement its rear camera,
- the notch may stay the same size in all upcoming iPhone 12 models, according to a new leak.
- Another note from an analyst suggests Apple will ditch wired EarPods inbox entirely with the iPhone 12 generation. This is the second time we’ve heard this report, so it’s seeming increasingly likely.
The iPhone 11 starts at a fairly affordable $699,
while the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max cost $999 and $1,099 respectively. The wild card is how much 5G support will add to the price of the new iPhone 12.
Since a forecast from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last year,
we’ve known that four different iPhone 12 models are on tap for 2020:
one at 5.4 inches, two at 6.1 inches, and the largest variant measuring 6.7 inches. All four 2020 iPhones will have 5G, Kuo says.
Like the iPhone XR before it, the iPhone 11 features an LCD display instead of an OLED panel.
iPhone 12 Max:
This 6.1-inch iPhone will feature the same hardware as the standard iPhone 12 — A14 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128/256GB of storage, and dual rear cameras. Instead, the biggest difference will be the screen. The iPhone 12 Max will have a larger flexible 6.1-inch OLED panel with 2532×1170 resolution. Like the iPhone 12, the Max version will include a touch sensor.
Apple-iPhone 12 Pro:
The 6.1-inch flexible OLED on this model could be the first phone to feature 10-bit color support, according to Young. It will feature 2532×1170 resolution along with Y-OCTA support. There’s a chance this phone’s screen could support a 120Hz refresh rate.
