iPhone 12 leak reveals design for all three sizes

A new set of iPhone 12 dummy units show an iPad Pro-like look — but they’re not final

As the  iPhone 12  gets closer to production, more than just renders are starting to circulate. Now there are dummy units making the rounds for the iPhone 12 that should be close to the final design. 

The latest dummy units revealed by leaker Sonny Dickson show all three sizes for the iPhone 12 lineup, and they definitely take their design inspiration from the  iPad Pro . But something seems off about the camera setups. 

As reported by  MacRumors , the iPhone 12 dummy units show a 5.4-inch model, a 6.1-inch unit and a 6.7-inch handset. And they all have have flat sides, which looks like the latest iPad Pro but is also a throwback to the iPhone 5. The edges also have more of a squared off look compared to the iPhone 11. 

Because the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro are both supposed to sport a 6.1-inch  display, it’s not clear which model the middle size unit is meant to represent. 

Another photo shows the three sizes side by side. Strangely, all three dummy units have three rear cameras, even though the regular iPhone 12 is rumored to feature just dual lenses. Only the 6.1-inch iPhone Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max were supposed to get a third telephoto lens. There’s also no  LiDAR  sensor on these dummy units, which is rumored to appear at least on the Pro Max. 

It’s also telling that there are no images of the front of these dummy units. So we can’t tell if the notches on these phones are smaller, which has been rumored. To be fair, in Dickson’s tweet he says that the notch and cameras should “not be taken 100%” but that the chassis is “promising.” 

We’ve also heard that the iPhone 12 could be thinner than the iPhone 11 and that the iPhone 12 Pro may come in a new navy blue color. 

Other than the design, the iPhone 12 is expected to feature Apple’s powerful new A14 Bionic chip, 5G connectivity and 120Hz ProMotion displays on the iPhone 12 Pro models. 

Overall, these iPhone 12 dummy units are intriguing and seem close to the real thing. But they don’t look complete.

7 Lessons that every entrepreneur should learn from Steve Jobs


Tóm tắt sách Tiểu Sử Steve Jobs | Tinh tế

Entrepreneurship isn’t a mere fashion statement; it’s a way of life. However, most people don’t have the perseverance or fire in the belly it demands, and usually give up. The primary goal of entrepreneurship is to create growth and wealth by offering high value-added activities to the present economy. This is possible when new and innovative ideas are implemented and jobs are created. As an entrepreneur, you are responsible for every minute thing. You need to take an idea to a service or product level, and keep working on it every day to achieve the right product-market fit, scale it, and then make it more attractive for others to invest into it. It’s an uphill journey and one emerges a different person. No book can teach us about this transformation; only learning on the ground can.
Inspiration abounds in the startup ecosystem but nowhere does it shine as bright as in the case of the legendary Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs wasn’t an engineer or a designer. But, he was one of the greatest users of technology of all time, and that made all the difference. The reason Jobs became a legend was due to his special vision; he wanted to change the world – and he sure did! He looked at products from the customer’s point of view – how and why would they use it? The visionary always focused on the benefits Apple products could provide, and how simple and easy they were to use. He ended up offering products that were not even needed, but eventually became a necessity for millions. Steve Jobs opened the flood gates for generations to come. I have been following him since from my first failed startup days to my exploratory trips and while designing and innovating products. I made mistakes, I repeated them, and I failed. I thought of giving up, but in those testing times Steve Jobs’ life-changing ideologies kept me going. Here are few a lessons from Steve Jobs that budding entrepreneurs can take tips from in their entrepreneurial journey.

4 trở ngại cản Tim Cook trở thành Steve Jobs thứ 2

1. Travel the world and do new things

Travel opens new windows and avenues. We often see a 30-year-old staying with parents, and traveling for the first time on honeymoon. One must travel before teenage ends. Those mistakes, meeting strangers, and keeping an open mind in a new country teaches us about people, culture, and history. That whole experience develops a different streak in our cerebrum. Steve himself travelled to India and stayed quietly in an ashram. It’s important to remember his lesson that when we understand people, we start understanding consumerism automatically.

2. Learn like a child

Learning is a way of life and never leaves us. Our brain is reshaping with every single thought we have. Children are driven forward by their unbridled curiosity. Just imagine how differently children approach the learning process. To them, it’s just a part of the discovery mode they use to face the world that surrounds them. Keep exploring to keep your brain young and live an exceptional life full of extraordinary lessons. If you are not learning, you’re shrinking.

3. Don’t take no for an answer

Steve Jobs was famous for being extremely bold and clear on what he wanted. He didn’t shy away from repeating the same question over and over until he got a solution or an answer. People used to avoid direct confrontations with him because they knew that he was so logical and convincing that they would be forced to agree on terms they might not even like.

4. Take a calculated risk

Every idea is a good idea unless it’s implemented. There is a lot at stake when innovation happens – people, investment, time, energy, effort, market dynamics, competition, viability etc. All this is risk and there is no surety if that one golden idea will work or not. But, if we don’t take that risk, we won’t be sure if we are moving in right direction or not. Always take calculated risks on practical grounds.

5. Never care about reality

Steve didn’t care much about reality. He forced engineers working with him to create products that were impossible to produce before Apple got there. Whether it was the slim Macbook or highly sophisticated iPhone, his vision and denial of reality inspired them. Sign up for Newsletters Check out our popular newsletters and subscribe

6. Innovate constantly

Any mention of Steve Jobs brings up innovation. People are often scared that discussing their thoughts will lead to people stealing their ideas. The key to avoid this problem is innovation. People may copy you, but they won’t be able to innovate at your speed if you continue to do that that. And, it’s a validation that you are doing something right if someone is copying you.

7. It is never too early to get started

We have had stories where people started at 60+. There is nothing called the right time; it’s about hitting the right chord. Starting small helps, so start with what you have and where you are. Invest in your idea and product with all your conviction. It all drills down to the first step. If you have an idea, action it.

Wait for iPhone 12 drags on as Apple delays production by a month


iphone-12-pro

Apple is delaying mass-production of the iPhone 12 lineup by around one month, according to a Monday report from The Wall Street Journal.

Sources blame the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic for the delay, which is likely to mean Apple’s next-generation handsets won’t be available until October. A trusted source for Cult of Mac recently made  the same prediction .

“Apple Inc. is pushing back the production ramp-up of its flagship iPhones coming later this year by about a month, according to people familiar with the changes,” reads  the report , which requires a WSJ subscription.

Sources blame weakened global demand, with consumers spending less on non-essential purchases during the pandemic — and on COVID-19 disruptions to key Apple manufacturing partners in Asia.

Expect an October debut

Recent reports have indicated Apple plans four different iPhone 12 models, in three different sizes, for a 2020 release. They’re all expected to offer faster 5G connectivity, Apple’s next-generation A14 chipset, and other big improvements.

It’s likely Apple would have been aiming to launch all four devices in September, as is tradition for flagship iPhone introductions. To meet that timeline, however, mass-production has to take place over the summer months.

That’s not going to happen this year, at least not at the rate Apple requires, thanks to the global pandemic. So, although Apple could still debut its newest handsets in September, we may not get our hands on them until October at the earliest.

Apple cuts iPhone 12 orders

In addition to delaying production, Apple has also slashed iPhone 12 orders, the report reveals. Sources say the number of units it plans to manufacture in 2020 has been reduced by as much as 20%.

Supply chain sources recently claimed Apple was pushing forward with what they believed were  unrealistic iPhone 12 sales estimates . They warned, however, that Cupertino could revise its figures before mass-production began.

Today’s WSJ report echoes similar claims made by reliable TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and by a source for Cult of Mac, which both predicted  an October launch  for iPhone 12.

Long-time iPhone fans will remember a similar delays for iPhone X and iPhone XR. Both handsets were unveiled in September 2017, alongside iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but they did not start shipping until October and November 2017.
