The Truth about Future iPhone Upgrades

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

Any of you been getting boring of iphone news have you been thinking that apple's losing their innovation and they're not doing anything major with the iphone lineup anymore well i'm here to tell you it's about to get a whole lot worse in fact we've been spoiled with years prior in iphone upgrades we have just kind of lucked out with year over years being very very massive and today's video is specifically about why i think next year's iphone okay not the iphone 12 but the iphone 12 s or the 13. the iphones coming out in 2021 are gonna be some of the most boring iphones we've seen in a long time

Peer speculation yes that's right let's begin all right here's the truth if we go back and just look at when i've been covering videos for the past few years my channel kind of got picked up and started with the iphone 7 okay and a lot of people were disappointed with the iphone 7 but the truth is there were a lot of year-over-year changes there despite the design looking fairly similar we had the solid state home button the first iphone with stereo speakers that's right we had the first

Iphone with a dual camera we had the first iphone with water resistance we had the a10 chip which was a pretty big leap forward and lots and lots of new color options so it was a very physically different looking iphone despite the displays looking the same the overall chassis changed quite a bit and of course the removal of the headphone jack which was a huge monumental shift and there were lots of debates a lot of people hating on it and a lot of people admitting that this was the future and

Look at where we are now i think they ended up being right there but there were a lot of things to talk about with the upgrade of the iphone 7 okay so there was a fairly substantial year you know screen sizes and form factor wise not much change but there were a lot of internal changes to talk about and other than the lack of wireless charging i think it was pretty solid but then the galaxy s8 came out after the iphone 7 and i think that accelerated apple's development of the first oled iphone and this in my opinion is

The biggest iphone upgrade of all time it will probably never get this major in the future and i can't think of an iphone prior to the iphone 10 that was this major as well this was the first time iphones had curved corners it was a new aspect ratio it was a new form factor it had stainless steel edges it had a new biometric it didn't have a home button it went all in on gesture control and now we had glass backs with wireless charging with the iphone 8 and 8 plus and of course the iphone 10 as well dual optical image stabilization this was the

First year we had 4k at 60 video recording we had the a11 chip we had improved fast charging capabilities there were so many changes brought with the iphone 10 that's likely why it was one of the most hyped releases ever there was so much build up to it a lot of you probably discovered my channel leading up to the iphone 10 launch because there was just so much to talk about and typically when there are major super cycles like that and there's these giant refreshes you typically get a somewhat minor year

After the fact right that's typically when apple takes a bit of a sleeper year they make it an s year as we call it and just focus on updating some of the internals not too much on design changes but we got lucky once again in 2018 because immediately following the iphone 10 we got new form factors and they brought iphone 10 features to the rest of the iphone lineup so for instance if apple just released the 10s okay and they didn't release the 10r or

The 10s max that would be more equivalent to what we're going to experience next year okay because the 10 to the 10s it was honestly really really minor it was like a11 to a12 chip we have a slightly better front-facing camera we have stereo microphone recording now and we've got a new gold color you know there's some slight updates here and there but for the most part 10 to 10s incredibly small anyone who had an iphone 10 was not really rushing out to buy the 10s

Because again that was such a minor of an upgrade but there was lots else to talk about that year because the 10r was pretty amazing and that dominated the market everyone loved the 10r it was just the right amount of everything yeah the bezels were a little thicker and it didn't have a dual camera but it made the amazingness of the iphone 10 more obtainable to more people and then of course 10s max i think there was plenty to talk about too because now apple was doing oled on

More than just one size and it was also the biggest display on an iphone of all time so we were finally getting the full-size keyboard of the eight plus that we liked except now with face id and gesture control in fact if you go back and watch i actually enjoyed switching back to the iphone 8 plus after i had used the iphone 10 for a few months because i missed that giant wide screen i didn't like having the compact form factor and i liked having the larger keyboard and i was actually quite comfortable with going back to the home button and

Everything so i couldn't wait for the 10s max to come out because to me that was gonna be like the best of both worlds it was like the plus size form factor which i like but with the super retina display and the face id and the gesture controls that i loved of the iphone 10. so obviously i was a big fan of the iphone tennis match so 2018 ended up feeling like quite a major year despite it technically being an s year because we got these new form

Factors to talk about 2019 was a bit more like the iphone 7 however this one was more about cleaning things up improving some of the internal specs and if anything last year's iphones felt more like an s year than 2018 even though they were not branded as s phones the iphone 11 i think was the big shocker because no one really predicted that apple was going to cave in on the ultra white camera instead of telephoto which in the end i think was a good call because it's more noticeable when it comes to camera

Options and that kind of thing but also the 50 lower starting price along with the a13 chip being much faster the better battery life that really caught people out of left field seeing apple price something lower than before and the fact that the iphone 11 pro and 11 pro max got huge battery improvements they got the ultra ride camera they got the frosted glass on the back which did give them kind of a fresh new look and the removal of 3d touch which i think allowed for those

Bigger batteries gave us plenty to talk about about what features are really useful versus what features are gimmicky and what is apple willing to ditch in the long run in favor of better overall performance it was somewhat minor but there were still lots and lots of things to talk about the lower starting price was awesome and that brings us to 2020 which in my opinion is going to be one of the more major iphone releases in a while because we're getting squared off edges

New form factors oled by default across the lineup the a14 chip is the first five nanometer chip design in a smartphone so we should experience pretty big performance gains or even decent battery life improvements as well and the biggest iphone of all time is being released alongside the smallest iphone in years so this year whether it has a smaller notch or 120 hertz or not is still pretty major this is kind of the iphone 10 of the 2020s if we look back at apple's history it seems like they kind of stagger

Releases in batches of three now right like in 2014 with the iphone 6 we had the 6s and then after the s year now we have the camera year that's essentially what they did afterwards with the iphone 7 emphasizing the dual camera and portrait mode and ironing things out it was kind of a repeat with 2017 in the iphone 10. we get the new design we get the s here and then we get the camera year so essentially what that means is we're about to start the new design

Cycle in 2020 with the iphone 12 but that means in 2021 it's got to be an s year and unlike 2018 apple's not going to be able to stretch this new design language across the two new form factors or make it more affordable somewhere because this time all the new design languages and new form factors are being released simultaneously so in 2021 we're not going to get to look forward to the iphone 12 r or something because the iphone 12 is already starting at pretty competitive

Pricing whether it's 650 or 700 bucks we're not gonna get the iphone 10r with the next generation in 2021 so that means that in next year the iphones are probably going to be exact same form factors that they were this year just with some internal component upgrades and unlike the iphone 7 there's a lot less incremental internal upgrades that apple can actually do because iphone 7 had a bunch of stuff to catch up on whether it was stereo speakers or water resistance or updating the home button to be solid state there

Was a bunch of things that the rest of the market was doing that iphone 7 got to catch up a little bit with whereas next year's iphones man i mean they could update the cameras a little bit but they're still all going to be oled they're probably going to be the same form factors we'll get the a15 chip but that's not going to be any smaller than the five nanometers so i wouldn't expect a 15 chip to be significantly better than a14 i'm sure it'll be an improvement but not a sleep and bound

Better and we have heard rumors that apple wants to remove the charge port in 2021 which if anything that's not a feature that's like a downgrade that's like a reason for someone to not upgrade their iphone and be like you know what i'll stick with the 2020 iphone 12 another year because i like having the port on my phone so if that rumor ends up being true i don't think it's going to help the sales to remove the charge board unless they do something crazy with that model but an ltpo oled display is very much likely in 2021

But the truth is if 120 hertz isn't happening this year then that means next year it's going to feel overdue it's going to be like finally because every other premium flagship on the market is already going to have 120 hertz at that point so 120 hertz coming to the iphone in september of 2021 is just gonna feel light it's gonna be like when apple added wireless charging to the iphone 8 everyone was like finally why didn't you do this earlier so once 120 hertz does come around it won't feel that major and kind of the

Same thing if apple decides to bring back touch id on the 2021 iphones for the sake of a lot of people still wearing masks and optional having two biometrics and that kind of thing they put the fingerprint readers underneath the display everyone's gonna be like uh finally why didn't they do this earlier and they might do something with the notch but again we've been saying that for the past three years it's like oh well 2018 the notch will be smaller oh well

2019 the notch will be smaller 2020 the notch will be small oh actually it's the same size notch so i feel like the boy who cried wolf in suggesting that well next year the notch will be gone but even then guys the notch being gone or even just getting smaller it's not gonna change the way you use your phone you're still gonna scroll and take pictures and videos the exact same way so my point is we're due for a really really boring s year the most boring iphone upgrade since probably the iphone

6s in my opinion which no one was really watching my videos back when that came out so there's not too much content i got out of the 6s release in the first place but my prediction is 2021 it's gonna be all about the apple silicon max that's what mostly we're going to be talking about in seeing that arm transition take place but when it comes to iphones i expect rumors and leaks and everything to get real real stale and it's going to be pretty difficult to find anything interesting about the 2021

Lineup because my guess is the notch is still gonna be there 120 hertz on the pro and models maybe it'd be kind of interesting if they brought 120 hertz to the low end models but i doubt it so the most interesting apple hardware is not going to be the iphones next year that's my prediction of course in traditional telos of tech fashion i hope i'm wrong my new slogan but let me know what you guys think i'm missing what big upgrades in 2021 should we expect or get excited for feel free to let me know

This is your app shape here i'll see you in the next
