This is what the new Apple iPhone will look like (and the name) for this year | Smartphones

We all know that Apple works with very defined plans, which are marking their times month by month until the moment of launch arrives. And in the case of the iPhone range, it is known by all that we find ourselves at those times of the year when Certain data that comes in can be practically considered good.

And since news about the smartphones from 2021, the name that has always been used to refer to them is iPhone 13 although, according to what they publish Some media such as CNet, this year we could return to the name “s”, after skipping the 11s version (for obvious reasons), those from Cupertino want their new models to end up being called iPhone 12s this year, despite the changes in the design more than obvious like that notch smaller.

Why no iPhone 13?

According to the sources, Apple wants to avoid that number 13 of the numbering of its iPhone because of the negative connotations that it has in much of the world, skipping that natural order until next year, in 2022, when we would have an iPhone 14 in our hands, directly. The way to sell this strategy would be that next year’s models are going to be a major leap in terms of terminal design, which would explain the continuity of the 12 range to its “s” version and that direct jump to another generation that does not have such “bad optics”.

But leaving aside the name, which is surely nothing more than an anecdote (although it is the only point where Apple’s strategy does not seem to have a clear criterion), we have other characteristics that will make apple fans happy. . One of them is the battery life. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhones from 2021 will be 20% more energy efficient than iPhone 12s from 2020 So, finally, autonomy can be stretched a little more and we cannot blame 5G connectivity.

In parallel, Jon Prosser he’s back to counterattack with a new prediction: we will have foldable iPhone with smartphones from 2022, so in Cupertino they seem to have taken that leap seriously. Finally, to say that this modification in the design of the two lenses of what will be the future iPhone 12s is also confirmed, since they will not have a vertical but oblique arrangement.


The iPhone 13 will borrow a function that the Apple Watch already have | Smartphones

There are times Apple decides to set a path that later other manufacturers of smartphones but, on other occasions, it happens just the other way around. What When a road is already clogged with so much traffic, those from Cupertino appear pretending they just found out to welcome a function that millions of users have been using for years on their phones (with Android).

And in this case it is curious because Apple has a precedent in the Apple Watch Series 5 that arrived on the market in 2019, which among its few novelties (because they did not include many, if not any) they boasted of having a always on display that allowed the user to always see the time although the smartwatch is locked and with the screen (technically) off.

The iPhone will always give you the time

Thus, from the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro they have taken advantage of the last hours to publish a video in which he comes to give new clues about some of the features that these new iPhone 13 of 2021 will have. The most outstanding is this one from the screen always active, or on, although with the brightness quite dim so as not to use up the entire battery. A function that Android users have already had for some years, with Samsung as the main driver.

Thanks to this always on display, the user will have a way to know the time of the smartphone no need to unlock it, or activate the screen by pressing any button, as well as notifications of notifications, calls, etc. Although it remains to be seen how Apple implements it in its future iPhone 13, it is a fast and minimally invasive way to control the notifications that are coming to the phone and that takes advantage of one of the best qualities of some OLED panels, such as the possibility of activate only a few screen pixels to deactivate the rest and thus avoid excessive energy expenditure.

Also, in the same video EverythingApplePro have confirmed that This year’s iPhone 13s will hit stores with 120Hz display panels. with LTPO technology (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide), such as those that the Apple Watch has been using since 2019 and that are the ones that allow this function of the always on display work smoothly. We will see, but without a doubt, Apple would go a step further in the functionality of its smartphones and print them one more plus of functionalities that have become, for many users, essential.


In this way the Range Rover Classic are transformed into electric

In the summer of 2021 Lunaz will begin to deliver to its customers, with a production limited to 50 units, the first electric Range Rovers. These cars have been transformed to meet the current needs of those who want a zero emission car starting from practically zeroIn other words, it is completely disassembled to repair the defects and proceed with their restoration, scanning it in 3D and developing CAD models to arrange the different elements necessary for electrification.

Lunaz’s Range Rover is offered in two levels: Town or Country.. The first is focused on comfort, the second, with an updated suspension and brakes, as well as being endowed with a more practical style. However, each car is adapted to the tastes of its owners no two are alike and they can count, in addition to the original Range options, with technologies such as infotainment systems, air conditioning, etc.

Among the new Range transformed by Lunaz also there are some eccentricities like a convertible called “Safari Specification” and based on the car from the James Bond movie Octopussy. According to the Silverstone firm, it would be the world’s first open-top electric SUV and the first unit has already been sold.

There is no technical data yet on these restorations-conversions of one of the most appreciated classic SUVs in the world, but there is a price “from” that makes clear the exclusivity of these works: 245,000 pounds plus tax, that is, about 271,000 euros.

The new models have come in four variants, 12 Mini, 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, featuring a new processor, improvements in cameras and 5G connectivity. Their price is always on everyone’s lips due to how expensive they are. Today we leave you with an investigation that shows how much it costs the company to actually make this smartphone.

Just the price of a mid-range mobile

Like every year, the experts they have disassembled the iPhone 12, in order to calculate the real cost of its components, in addition to knowing the degree of ease of repair. Once all its components had been analyzed, the experts came to verify that the iPhone 12 components add up to a total of $ 373 cost, about 313 euros to change. It is a price that, equivalent to Android mobiles, would correspond to a mid-range. The sale price of the iPhone 12 is 909 euros in Spain, in its most basic version of 64GB.

Cost of manufacturing an iPhone 12


In terms of major components, here are the prices of the iPhone 12 parts as estimated by experts:

  • Samsung Electronics flash memory – 16 euros per unit
  • Sony CMOS – 6.2 – 6.6 euros per unit

However, we must bear in mind that experts mainly analyze only material costs. However, material costs are affected by the rate of return and the actual cost must be greater than this data. At the same time, Apple’s costs in R&D, operations and marketing, as well as its investment in the industrial chain, are far from being reflected in these figures.

Also, the component suppliers for different mobile phones may be slightly different. Apple for the same component can work with different companies, since most are usually common components that are not manufactured by just one.
