According to a new rumor, Apple will release a navy blue version of the iPhone 12. This is in line with a previous rumor about the color of the iPhone 12 Pro.
‘iPhone 12 will soon be available in navy blue’
The rumor comes from the Taiwanese website DigiTimes. The website states that Apple is also adding a LiDAR scanner to the iPhone 12 Pro devices. The depth sensor can measure distances and depth, so your camera can take an accurate picture of your surroundings. The sensor is especially useful in combination with augmented reality. Currently, the LiDAR depth sensor is only available on the iPad Pro 2020.
The rumor appeared in a report on the iPhone 12 ‘s worldwide shipments this fall. It also states that the LiDAR scanner is expected to be increasingly used in electronic devices. In addition, DigiTimes states that the Cupertino company will ship some 63 to 68 million iPhones this fall.
Those seem like big numbers, but it’s about 5 million less than the amount of iPhone 11 devices Apple shipped around the same time last year. This has to do with the fact that the iPhone has been delayed for about four to six weeks, and also the announcement of the new iPhone a little later in the year. The delay has everything to do with the corona crisis and associated travel restrictions.
The rumor about the color of the iPhone 12 is consistent with previous rumors about the iPhone 12. At the beginning of this year, it was already claimed that the iPhone 12 Pro will be available in blue. This would replace the dark green shade of the iPhone 11 Pro.
iPhone 12 delayed by a few weeks
Apple announced last month that the iPhone 12 series has officially been delayed by “a few weeks.” Last year, the company presented the iPhone 11 on September 10. A release in September is therefore off the track.
Apple would give the iPhone 12 series a new look anyway. For example, the two successors to the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 12, would be available in new colorful variants. Moreover, the housing also gets an update: the iPhones have a more angular design, as we now know from the iPad Pro.
Keep an eye out for this rumor. DigiTimes is not always right. According to our rumor research, the Taiwanese tech website is 43 percent reliable.
