In this news, we discuss the Apple unveils new iPhones for faster 5G wireless networks.
Apple has unveiled four new iPhones equipped with technology for use with new, faster 5G wireless networks. There is the iPhone 12, which Apple claims is more durable, with a 6.1-inch screen, the same as the iPhone 11 but lighter and thinner, for $ 799 and the iPhone 12 Mini with a 5.4 inch screen for $ 699. They will be available in black, white, red, green and blue.
A top of the range iPhone 12 Pro with more powerful cameras is available in silver, graphite, gold and blue and will cost $ 999; the 12 Pro Max, with a 6.7-inch display, costs $ 1,099. To an extent that may annoy some consumers, Apple will no longer include charging adapters with new phones.
Apple has one of the world’s most loyal and wealthy customer bases, which many analysts are betting that the next wave of phones will sell well. the iPhone remains the foundation of Apple’s business. Apple bragged about 5G capabilities and called on Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg to defend the operator’s network. 5G is supposed to mean much faster speeds, which makes downloading movies or games faster, for example.
But finding those speeds can be a challenge. While telecom operators have rolled out 5G networks, significant increases in speed are still rare in much of the world, including the United States. There are no new popular consumer apps that require 5G. the iPhone the models unveiled on Tuesday will launch at different times. the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro will be available from October 23; the Mini and Pro Max will follow on November 13.
It squeezes Apple’s window to create excitement as the holiday season approaches. Consumers are generally expected to have less money to spend amid high unemployment and economic anxiety due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While other areas of Apple’s business are now growing faster, the iPhone remains the biggest business of a tech giant currently worth around $ 2 trillion, nearly double its value when US household orders in mid-March plunged the economy in a deep recession.
The pandemic has temporarily crippled Apple factories and major suppliers overseas, causing the latest iPhones to lag behind their usual rollout in late September. The company has also closed several of its U.S. stores for months due to the pandemic, depriving Apple of a prime showcase for its products. Apple also said on Tuesday it was reducing the size and price of its HomePod to catch up with Amazon and Google in the internet-connected speaker market, where it barely made a dent.
Amazon and Google are both trying to position their speakers, the Echo and Nest, as low-cost command centers to help people run their homes and lives. They cost as little as $ 50, while the HomePod costs $ 299. The new HomePod Mini will cost $ 99. It will of course integrate Apple’s music service with Pandora and Amazon’s music service in the “coming months”. Apple didn’t mention the music streaming giant Spotify. It will be available for sale on November 6 and will ship the week of November 16.
Research firm eMarketer estimates that approximately 58 million people in the United States use an Amazon Echo, 26.5 million use a Google Nest speaker, and 15 million use a HomePod or other speakers sold by d other manufacturers, including Sonos and Harman Kardon.
