Apple preparing to build 75 mil 5G iPhones later this year

Apple preparing to build 75 mil 5G iPhones later this year

Apple will presumably keep the Pro branding for the two more expensive of the handsets. There are also reports that all four models will use OLED displays and support 5G.

Apple is also preparing a new iPad Air with an edge-to-edge iPad Pro-like screen, along with two new Apple Watch versions (one rumoured to be an "affordable" model).

Japanese blog Macotakara (via 9to5Mac) said on Monday that alongside the new iPhone units, we should finally see the long-awaited AirTags tracking product unveiled during an online event to be held during the second half of October. Make of them what you will. According to the latest rumours, Apple is planning a completely new design with Touch ID moving to the power button to allow for a larger display. "This year, we project supply to be available a few weeks later". The new Apple Watch is expected to come in two very different variants.

The next Apple Watch refresh is expected to bring two new variants - one that will succeed Apple Watch Series 5, and another more affordable model that will replace Apple Watch Series 3. Read about the Apple Watch 6 here.

However the rumours suggest that we may have to wait a little longer.

With that in mind we'd suggest you can buy the AirPods Pro with reservation, but don't buy the standard AirPods.

We've already mentioned the iPhone SE, which it seems will soon be getting some competition in the form of a smaller iPhone 12 model. And the biggest victor according to analysts from Omdia was the iPhone 11, which moved the whopping 37.7 million units in the first half of 2020.

Originally, Kuo predicted that Apple would ship 10-20 million mmWave 5G iPhones by the end of 2020, and then another 40-50 million in 2021, however he's now revised those numbers to 4-6 million and 25-35 million, respectively.

Apple is expected to launch its first 5G iPhone models later this year, which could mark the biggest iPhone redesign since the 2014 launch of the iPhone 6, according to Bloomberg. For example, a T-Mobile or AT&T customer who buys a sub-6GHz only iPhone wouldn't be able to use 5G at all if they later made a decision to switch to Verizon. Researchers point to the upgraded camera system and the slightly lower starting price of the iPhone 11 (in select markets), compared to the XR.
