Wait for Improved Performance
Apple is reportedly planning to install new chips inside the 2020 iPhones. Not that that comes as a surprise.
According to the hit-or-miss Digitimes, "TSMC is expected to secure the first 5nm chip orders from Apple for the 2020 iPhones."
Bloomberg's Mark Gurman claims the 2020 iPhone models will feature "a much beefier processor" which means we'll probably see some big improvements to battery life and speed.
Speaking of the battery, a report from Korean site The Elec suggests that Apple will use a battery protection module that is around 50 percent smaller and thinner than ones used in previous iPhones.
Nothing is confirmed, but the move could open up some internal space inside the iPhone 12's design which could lead to larger batteries.
According to Barclay's analyst Blayne Curtis, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will mostly likely use 6GB of RAM. This is up from the 4GB Apple used in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 12 will reportedly use 4GB like its predecessor, the iPhone 11.
This has been backed up by a report from UBS analysts Timothy Arcuri and Munjal Shah.
If you aren't thrilled with the battery life and overall performance on the current crop of devices, think about waiting.
