In a new video today Youtuber EverythingApplePro in partnership with leaker Max Weinbach shared some new updates about the iPhone 12. The Youtuber-leaker duo has been an increasingly more prominent source for credible 2020 iPhone leaks compared to other smaller accounts.
According to the duo, a 120Hz display for the lineup is still on the menu despite some early doubt. In addition, the iPhone 12 Pro Max has passed all 5/5 hardware tests while the smaller 6.1-inch iPhone 12 model has passed 4/5 due to the smaller display paneling. Sources say Apple is expected to fix the issue rather quickly but will cost the company time amid concerns of a delay as it is.
EverythingApplePro prompts the prospect of a staggered 120Hz release with some models being shipped earlier than others if Apple feels its worth it at the end. Max Weinbach specifically in working with his sources found a string of code within the 1st developer build of iOS 14 referencing 4K 120/240 FPS camera modes. If true, it would be a massive update from the current 60FPS 4K option that the iPhone 11 provides. Corroborating the references within the code, Max’s sources confirmed Apple is testing these options internally.
According to Max Weinbach, Apple’s marketing strategy for the iPhone 12 lineup will be “unusually aggressive” in terms of not only boosting about the design but about specific features as well. Apple has faced a number of reports of an impending delay for the iPhone 12, however recent reconsidered analysis of the company’s supply chain suggests a release is back on track for September.
