Apple may launch four 5G iPhones next year

Even before Apple announced the launch date of its 2019 iPhones, a lot of information was being reported about the 2020 iPhones. At one point, next year’s iPhones were touted to be more interesting than this year’s lineup.

A fresh addition to that comes from 9to5Mac that cites a report from Apple analyst Dan Ives at Wedbush. Ives claims that the Cupertino-based tech giant will launch four new flagship iPhone models in 2020. Each of these iPhones is said to come with 5G connectivity support. The said handsets are also said to feature a rear 3D-sensing system, and “motion control.” This hasn’t been elaborated further so we will have to wait and see what more comes to light with respect to 2020 iPhones.

To recall, in July, renowned analyst and Apple ‘tipster’ Ming Chi-Kuo had also reportedly shed information on 5G-enabled iPhones. As per Kuo, Apple will launch three iPhones in 2020 will feature 5G connectivity. Kuo in a note said that says that all three iPhone models will support fast 5G cellular data. Kuo, as per the 9to5Mac report, “believes that the 5G iPhone models will support both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands.” What this will do is that it will allow the “iPhone to interoperate well with the 5G cell towers installed across the United States.”

Kuo, earlier this week has claimed that the successor of the iPhone SE is coming in the first half of next year. It has been mentioned — in a latest research note shared by the Macrumors — that Apple will likely sell around 10% more iPhones in H1 2020 because of the ‘iPhone SE 2’ and the already strong placement of the new Apple iPhone 11.

“We expect that combined iPhone shipments in 1Q20 will grow around 10% YoY thanks to the iPhone 11’s replacement demand boosted by more affordable prices and iPhone SE2’s shipments starting in 1Q20. We estimate that iPhone shipment in 1Q20 will be 45–50mn units (iPhone 11 Pro series and iPhone 11 to be 13–15 and 22–24mn units, respectively), which is better than around 42mn units of iPhone shipments in 1Q19 (iPhone XS series and iPhone XR to be around 12 and 14mn units, respectively),” says Kuo in the note.
