iPhone 12 mini, iOS 14.2 Beta 2 Release, Apple iPhone 12 Event and more

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and over the past couple of weeks since i've done a news update there's been a lot of new information regarding when to expect the next iphones as well as some ios versions we didn't expect so a couple weeks ago i was covering ios 14 and watch os 7 and now we have ios 14.2 so a little bit later i'll talk about when to expect ios 14.2 beta 2 but let's first talk about when to expect the next iphones in their event now according to some carriers they've

Leaked a date that seemingly was leaked to them by apple themselves according to them anyway some carriers or carriers like t-mobile and others overseas that have said that perhaps on october 13th we'll see an apple event now that would mean we'll get invites usually the week before so you've got the fifth through the ninth maybe in that week we'll see that in october for an invite for the event on third on the 13th where we'll see the next iphones

And so that seems to make sense with pre-orders going live later that week usually on a friday so that would be the 16th at 8 00 a.m or 8 a.m eastern time and then we would see the sale of the first iphone 12 on the 23rd so that seems to make sense based on what apple's done in the past but apparently we won't see the pro models until november according to some people so that seems to make sense we would have the iphone 12 maybe the upcoming iphone smaller iphone 12 as well as the pros

Launching in november so a split launch like many have said now other than that event it seems like apple may also be pushing a november event as well where they would show off the next macbook pro refresh with apple's new silicon in it so that's apparently coming with the 13 and 16 inch macbooks we have seen events in november before i just don't know that we've seen three events one right after the next but it's possible we'll see that and it seems to make sense if apple's

Not ready to show that at their iphone event and they want to dedicate it specifically for those new macbooks now speaking of the iphone 12 it appears that the iphone 12 the smallest size is going to be called the iphone 12 mini now this apparently makes sense according to leaker duan rai who actually showed the ipad air pamphlet before it launched he's now showing some barcodes with some of the information that usually goes on the boxes showing the name iphone 12 mini and so that means the smaller one would be mini

They haven't i think used that name since well mac mini but also ipod mini but we would have this new squared off design and it certainly should be called mini because here's an iphone 11 and you can see it's very small so iphone 12 mini iphone 12 iphone 12 pro and iphone 12 pro max and so it seems like we're going to have the mini size so that would be pretty interesting to see also it would have a smaller notch now this had me thinking a couple different

Things is maybe if it has a smaller notch it doesn't have face id and maybe it has that new touch id that apple has shown on the new ipad air where it's integrated into the power button i know a lot of people would appreciate that given that a lot of people wear masks today and you need to quickly unlock your phone you could do that using touch id on the side or maybe it could have both i would love to see both i like touch id so i would love to see it in the power button

But there's no real information saying that's definitely going to happen but hopefully it does now as far as the iphone 12 pro and 12 those sizes should be the same 6.1 size that we have with the iphone 11 so it would be a squared off design with the exact same body that we have with the 12 and 12 pro the good thing about this is we could have the same cases that fit both devices and you could just differentiate them based on camera lenses so maybe you'll have two with the iphone 12

And three with the iphone 12 pro and so that would be really interesting to see and that would make it much easier to manufacture for apple as well as have fewer cases and i think a lot of people would appreciate having fewer case options it would just be easier just grab an iphone 12 case and you'd be good to go regardless of your device now also as far as colors go apple changes the iphone colors every year for the less expensive model the iphone 11 in this case or the iphone 10r the previous year

And so this year it looks like we may get those pastel colors that we have with the ipad air so blue maybe a peach-ish orange color in the green just like this one here with the iphone 11. so maybe we'll get some more pastel colors slight shade differences and that would be nice to see that i would love to see different colors on the pro models like blue that we have with the apple watch as well we may see that but we'll have to wait and see now with the iphone 12 pro max

Apparently it's going to be set apart a little bit in that it's going to be an actual flagship this year compared to everything else so not only will it have that squared off design like this prototype here that doesn't function but it would also have a lidar sensor maybe different internals maybe a better display in some way maybe some advanced technology that we're not aware of yet so hopefully we'll have a few surprises with that and if it's a real flagship we may not see it until later in november and then others are saying we may not

See the millimeter wave version of iphone 12 pro max until maybe even late this year or early next year based on some of the manufacturing now that's not much of a problem for most people since 5g is readily rolled out in sub 6 frequencies but millimeter wave is very specific to different cities in different areas so you literally have to be standing on a corner to get the super fast speeds of 5g with millimeter wave so that's not big a big problem for me

It's also very power hungry and millimeter wave doesn't travel through walls easily so i don't really care about that personally i like the sub 6 where it's readily available and faster than 4g so hopefully we'll see that but we may not get a millimeter wave version until later that's set apart usually that would require a larger battery too for extended runtime now as far as the next iphones and what they have inside according to ice universe who tested the a14 cpu

Inside one of them using antutu benchmarks he was saying that the benchmark tests showed that it was slower than the snapdragon 865 plus now i find this hard to believe since apple really jumps ahead of everyone but it's possible that they're doing that and it would be way more power efficient so if they've found a way to make a13 cpu speeds but be super power efficient and give us extended battery life i would definitely welcome that and previous leaks have said that we will get a lot more battery

Life hours more battery life so it would be really great to see that so hopefully we'll see something like that and better battery life even in the smallest iphone 12 mini while it's rumored that we won't get a power brick with the new iphone 12 we may get a new braided cable so this is a black braided cable usb c to lightning that comes with a mac pro when you buy one so you've got lightning on one end and usb c on the other

But it may have a white version of this cable that comes with the iphone 12 12 pro and 12 pro max now the good thing is these are much more durable they should be better for the environment if that's what apple's pushing as far as not including a power brick so these should last a lot longer in fact this one i mistakenly ran over with a chair and it still works just fine so it works fine it just doesn't look as nice but it would be really nice to see all of the cables braided and to last a lot longer than what we've had in the

Past now as far as ios 14.2 beta 2 well i would expect that as soon as well tomorrow at this point based on what we've seen in the past we're on a two-week cycle and we'll see it tomorrow or wednesday at the latest of course apple can change this at any time in fact it could come out today we've seen it as late as 6 p.m at this point but hopefully we'll see it as soon as tomorrow usually around 1 pm eastern time and i'll let you know of course as soon as i know when it's released

Now the strange thing is we haven't seen ios 14.1 and many people are saying that's because it's going to launch with the iphone 12 and then ios 14.2 will launch a little bit later on hopefully that's true it's kind of odd that we haven't had a beta of 14.1 but we have one of 14.2 already this is very strange and we haven't really seen this before so hopefully we'll see that in the future now speaking of ios 14 apparently facebook has gone to apple and said

You already allow default browsers and default mail apps can we have a default messaging app as well so we can use facebook messenger for example as our main app and so it's hard to say if apple will allow this in the future since imessage is such a tie-in to the os but hopefully they'll allow more default apps including music and everything else in the future but right now apparently facebook is asking apple will you allow this and if they don't maybe there'll be a lawsuit it's hard to

Say at this point but maybe we'll see that in the future now as far as future products it looks like apple is apparently working on mini led and i've talked about this in the past but according to ming chi quo the ipad pro will get mini led in the next version and what that means is that's the way it sort of backlights everything which would make it much more power efficient maybe even last longer as far as the display goes and get brighter

As well now that's not micro led where those are the actual pixels so we'll see that probably down the road in the future but right now they're lighting this with leds and using mini leds would probably save power and again give for a brighter display so we may see that in the first half of 2020 according to ming chi quo and we've seen that rumor for quite some time so i would expect that to be pretty true now as far as charging the iphone we've heard about air power for years at this point and it looks like apple's

Working on air power mini and maybe it would align with those magnets we've seen in previous pictures that the iphone 12 will have magnets in the back and maybe it will line up to this new air power device it wouldn't surprise me if they launched their own charger and i would love to see this not only for the iphone but maybe something that uses watch as well so you could charge your watch and iphone together

Of course nomad and those companies offer similar sorts of charging solutions but apple with maybe that new magnet ring would make it even more convenient and that it would just snap into place so maybe we'll see something like that in the future now a lot of you have been asking me when are we going to see mac os big sur and so based on what we've seen in the past i think we'll see it maybe in the first couple weeks of october last year mac os catalina came out on

The 7th of october and so maybe we'll see big sur then we're already at beta 8 of big sur so it's possible we'll see it in a couple weeks now apple could be waiting until they push out those silicon macbook pros that i talked about earlier in order to release mac os big sur make sure it's really ready for the new silicon so we may see that we may not but hopefully we see it in a couple weeks since it seems to be pretty stable with beta 8. now apparently apple is working on those over-the-ear airpods studio

Still so they would be a replacement maybe for beats in the future but it's hard to say but basically they would just be a higher fidelity version of over-the-ear studio headphones so hopefully we'll see those soon and this is what they look like apparently based off of recent leaks john prosser sort of confirmed this so maybe they'll look like this maybe they won't but they're still in prototype phase or we could see them as soon as the november event it looks like now as far as the apple watch is

Concerned this is a series six titanium apple watch and i'm really enjoying it but some people that upgraded to watch os seven on the series three apple watch are having issues with random reboots now people have messaged me directly also nine to five mac has actually mentioned this and quite a few people just seem to have it reboot on its own i've had people check their battery health in settings their battery life and they don't seem to have an issue with it so it seems to be something with the os

Itself so within settings you go to battery go to battery health and this should be at 100 as it's brand new but you'll see you have maximum capacity i thought maybe the batteries were just drained down if you had a new or an older series three and it was rebooting but it's so prevalent that it seems to be an issue at this point so hopefully apple will fix that with the next version but so far we haven't seen that now according to love to dream apple was apparently planning watch bands for the

2020 olympics to correspond with a country that you represent so unfortunately we won't see those this year but hopefully we'll see those next year with the 2021 olympics so maybe we'll see those in the future and then finally apple is still planning to release an ipod touch with the next generation update so maybe we'll have an a13 and ipod touch so that we can have updates for years to come maybe with some more ram and maybe some new cameras as well

There's no information about the hardware just that apple is working on it and we should see it in the future so hopefully we see that pretty soon and of course as i know more i'll keep you updated with everything else so that's it for this particular update let me know what you're most excited about in the comments below and of course i'll link this wallpaper in the description like i normally do if you haven't subscribed already though please subscribe and if you enjoyed the
