Yeah yeah yeah iPhone 12 I know we gotta talk also Tim Cook Timothy my boy you tried to pull a fast one on me and it it didn't work what tech news in a way that doesn't suck and hit the subscribe button in turn on notifications because you're stuck inside right now you don't got a choice hello there greetings and welcome back to front page tech FPT fatah the show that gives you tomorrow's tech news today I think that should be the new slogan at this point the show that gives you all this tech news among geeks that is me to another that is you happy

Tuesday everybody before we jump into the show just a quick mention a ton of you have been asking us for a long time to bring our podcast recycle bin back and surprise out of nowhere we posted a brand-new episode of recycle bin in our long episode of goodness we talked about bap bap we talked about all the behind scenes stuff going on with all of our Apple leaks and more and apparently y'all weren't kidding about wanting that show back because over the weekend recycle bin landed in the top 10 of the top shows and technology on Apple podcasts we were number six to be exact

Okay so holy thank you listen if you haven't heard the episode yet you're not subscribed to the show yet to go ahead and look up recycle bin and all of your favorite podcast apps right now and of course I'll leave a few links for you to help down the description below okay so Apple news right Apple leaks Before we jump into the iPhone story for the day let's talk about that MacBook Pro first half of the day story numero uno MacBook Pro 13 inch so last month to the day on April 4th I tweeted if everything goes well new 13-inch MacBook Pro codename J 2 to 3 coming next month

Which of course at that time was this month May oh but as is with every one of my Apple leaks it gets better so when the iPhone se came out last month I went ahead and I tweeted the time that it was releasing on the day that it was releasing and some other stuff I had gotten word for my sources with an apple that said Tim Cook was on a press briefing with members of the media which means basically on that day a few hours before the se officially came out Apple sat down on a press call with members of the media and gave them a briefing about the product that was about to drop

Obviously the es e they do this so that when Apple updates their websites the press can also put out their articles about the product basically at the same time but they didn't do that this time there were no press briefings before the MacBook Pro 13-inch dropped instead they decided to do press briefings after the official news room post on Apple's website after it came out on the website then they would brief the press on stuff effectively hoping that I wouldn't get the information early and be able to spoil a surprise release but that didn't work they didn't

Tell anyone early and still your boy went ahead and tweet first I apologise to Tim because that's the courteous gentleman thing to do any time I'm about to spoil a product release I go ahead and apologize to Tim first so that he knows that I know and then knowing that the MacBook Pro 13-inch was gonna drop just an hour later I went ahead and tweeted incoming today's the day and then right before was about to drop I went ahead and let people know that we were just three minutes away from the announcement and just like that three minutes later it

Was posted on Apple's website in a press release hey listen this okay future journey here all right Byrne is actually brian is editing the show right now I finished recording a couple hours ago but I had to include this in the episode Phil Schiller today blocked me on Twitter and I just found that about it I have literally never tweeted Phil Schiller in my life so they really must be pissed that I somehow still managed to leak that MacBook Pro drop you know just got blocked by this guy courage how's your Tuesday going so sorry Tim you know I

Guess you're just gonna have to try a little bit harder next time you you know I'm gonna do right you know I have a sign that I'm just K I'm not gonna Brian would kill me he hates editing that so I'm not I'm not gonna do it don't worry I'm not gonna do that today okay so next up let's talk about higher they will no longer tell you about the news of today but instead the news I'm – okay okay let's talk about the iPhone 12 got a couple different things first let's talk about this so our friends over at phone arena posted brand new renders of what

They think the iPhone 12 is gonna look like of course being the base model of the iPhone 12 we've seen a lot of renders of the iPhone 12 Pro and very rarely do we get a good look at what we can expect the iPhone 12 base line stuff to look like so I just gotta give him credit here this looks amazing and compared to the information I have from my sources I'd say this is pretty close to the thing we're actually gonna get especially the back I would say the knotch there on the front is a little sketchy but all-in-all fairly accurate and of course it looks so good now I'm

Being told that the word that Apple is using internally for this lineup is the word symmetry which I guess is safe to assume that they basically wants all the phones in the iPhone 12 lineup all four phones to look pretty much the same it just sucks that we won't see it – like October ish as you know I mentioned for like the last month or two that the phones are delayed until October ish we probably would still get an announcement in September but it'll actually roll out in like October late October maybe heading into November kind of what we saw with the iPhone 10 launch now let's

Talk about those prices so in the last episode of front page tech we gave you the prices for every device in the lineup stating that the pro models the 12 pro and the 12 pro max are gonna be the same as the previous models price starting at $9.99 and then going up to 1,000 $99 now where it got interesting was when I gave the prices for the 5.4 inch iPhone 12 and then the 6.1 inch iPhone 12 sitting at 649 and then 749 now whole since I gave those prices Khaos video after video after video has been made about this article after article has been written about this and

I just want to address a couple concerns that's did that some people had that's all there's the common one of saying that well there's no way that the iPhone 12 is going to be cheaper than the iPhone 11 so let's use our brains for a second put this in perspective the current iPhone 11 is $700 and it's 6.1 inches compare that to the 6.1 inch iPhone 12 that's coming technically it's not cheaper technically it's going up in price by 50 bucks again if you're gonna compare the models you got to compare this 6.1 inch models cuz that's what they are and remember even the base

Models this year for the iPhone 12 are getting 5 g and OLED I'm being told that it's not millimeter-wave 5 G for the base models but it's still it's still 5 G just so Apple can say 5 go so because of 5g and the new OLED display upgrade $50 more this time around the most interesting device in this lineup for me is that 5.4 inch model we haven't seen a model like this before so there's nothing to compare the price to so when I tell you that it's 649 I mean you can't be shocked to compare that to any other device in the lineup we haven't had something like this

Before it's the most interesting device in the lineup and it's the one I'm most excited for and if I had to guess I'm sure a lot of you are excited too another common thing that I've seen like especially on Beretta is people saying they're like I'm just making this up because there's no way I could know the prices or leaf them this early because even Apple doesn't know the prices I'm sorry what what are you talking about how do you think this works you think Apple just builds a font they just they just throw everything they can into a phone

Whatever they need and they just just make it just make it we'll see how much it costs afterwards and then they make the phone and realize oh that's gonna cost like $1300 well friend we already made it get start the price we just now decided the price that's not how it works all right Apple budgets for these devices in or to hit a specific target price think about all the features that they could have added to previous models maybe you think they should have added but they didn't they chose not to because it would increase the price for them and in

Turn increase the release price for you the consumer so by the time they decide to put features in devices it's probably because they figured out a way to finally make it work in the budgeting for the devices so they already know the prices before they put the orders in for the parts for the phone that's how it works that's how business works so you crazy you think I was just gonna accidentally make a $1400 phone now you might be wondering how the hell are they able to get the prices this low seeing as you know even the base models are getting OLED displays this time around

Well as you know Apple typically works with Samsung for displace they buy o LEDs from Samsung for the iPhones and let's take the iPhone 11 Pro for example the price that they paid per iPhone for the display was near $70 per panel that's a massive chunk in manufacturing costs for these devices just the display panels from Samsung so if you wanted to add OLED displays to other models and bring the price down what would you do maybe not work with Samsung as much you may have seen reports before and of course I have confirmed with my sources that especially for displays with the

IPhone 12 lineup Apple is working with boe a manufacturer in China and if you're a manufacturer of any kind you want the chance to work with Apple and you know they're getting their displays from Samsung how would you get them to work with you and put orders in with you you would cut them a sweet deal on some OLED displays and because it's cheaper for Apple now it's gonna be cheaper for you and that's gonna change a ton for the smartphone market when Apple charge a thousand dollars for iPhones when I started doing that the rest of the market followed and now

Everybody else is increasing the prices of their phones especially flagship phones when they release so the smart thing for Apple to do in this market while everyone else is cranking prices up keep your prices the same or bring them down a tad and with Apple doing this they now have iPhones in nearly every price range new iPhones this year plus you know you can get a deal on older models of the phones as well and because of that the model the markets just gonna have to adapt like people are just gonna expect to start seeing some prices come back down to a

More reasonable level I am a looking at you Samsung anyway that's what I know about pricing hopefully that cleared off some of your questions and the videos or the articles that you read about the price things we gave that's it this felt like a long show and of course that's the show hopefully you like to you learn something if you did hit the like button if you hate my stupid face that dislike button that works too if you're new here subscribed and of course we'll see you guys
