Apple works on several devices unlike what was made before, an anonymous leaker said. That MacBook ARM which is featured in various other reports, is one of them. That is the MacBook uses a special version of Apple’s A-series chip that powers the iPhone and iPad. Some people have long theorized that an increasingly powerful A-series processor can be used on a Mac, and it seems we’re almost there. Leaker also said that Apple will launch a new iPad Air design, a tablet that will display the Touch ID fingerprint sensor under the screen, which will be Apple’s first, because the company avoids this special type of technology on its devices so far.
Early rumors of the iPhone X say cell phones will have fingerprint sensors under the screen, a technology Apple has been learning for years. But as we got closer to the actual launch of the phone, it became clear that there would not be any Touch ID button on all screen devices. All iPhones that follow, except for the iPhone SE this year, display the same design, complete with Face ID function.
The iPad Pro is next to lose the fingerprint sensor, because the tablet gets a design change in 2018. iPad Pro gets an all-screen design, slim profile, Face ID support, and USB-C connectivity.
Fast forward to today, and the Chinese leaker who uses the name @ L0vetodream on Twitter has some details about Apple’s upcoming products. MacRumors the word leaker has a “fairly accurate track record,” and most tweets seem to suggest this person has access to Apple sources. Either that or someone just making it up based on other leaks.
Leaker was the first to mention Apple’s so-called AirPods X headphones, the report said, long before Jon Prosser did. In mid-March, @L0vetodream also posted additional details about some products that were not announced.
This Tweet seems to list all Apple products that might enter the store this year:
He said the iPad Air will feature a mini-LED screen and an all-screen design without a stand. To be fair, iPads with Face ID don’t have notches, they have bigger bezels. Leaker says there is no Face ID on the device, but it will display the Touch ID sensor at the bottom of the screen.
In a more cryptic tweet, the person said Apple also developed their own controller:
In the following days, leaker said that all four iPhone 12 phones could support 5G and that the navy blue option was being considered for the handset.
Then, he said the iMac would be postponed:
On Sunday, leakers said that Apple’s A14 chip which will drive the iPhone 12 series will also be delayed.
There’s a lot of information to open here, and we need time to see if any of this information comes out.
However, MacRumors shows that leaker reveals some key details of the iPhone SE before other leakers, including the launch window, storage capacity, and color. That person also knew the iPad Pro 2020 would be launched in the third week of March, apparently.
