It’s hard to keep track of what is going on with Apple, even when a global pandemic has temporarily delayed the company’s activity. However, this article will guide you through the latest news about the new iPhone SE, the powerful camera module on the iPhone 12, the surprising way Apple shut down Darks Sky, an Android app, and more.
The 2020 iPhone SE
Even though it was delayed, the release of Apple’s next handset is getting closer and closer.
The second version of Apple’s entry-level iPhone has been the subject of headlines for many months now. It is believed to share a similar chipset with the iPhone 11, but in a different chassis, most likely identical to the one of the iPhone 8.
It’s believed that the handheld will be named “iPhone SE,” and only the hardware will receive the “2020” label.
9to5Mac has shared their hypothesis that there will be three colors available for the new SE – black, white, and red. Three storage options will be released – 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
iPhone 12 Camera Progress
The base for the development of the next iPhone Pro’s camera is the current-gen iPad Pro. The LiDAR scanner will most likely make a comeback, as it has just the right size to be fitted on the phone’s body.
Apple is most likely working on optimizing the processing algorithms since powerful hardware without adequate software is useless (and Samsung proved that on many occasions).
Apple made an unexpected purchase – It bough the well-known weather app, Dark Sky.
However, that is terrible news for fans of the app. Though it was initially a cross-platform app, it can no longer be installed by Android users.
The app will be shut down on July 1st, 2020.
However, apps that use the public API will be granted access until the end of 2021, but new sign-ups won’t be available.
