Hello friends welcome to Anish today’s I am going to (today I am going to Review iphone 12 })
So the iPhone 12 lineup is coming and theyare expected to launch on October 13th which is not far away.
Jon Prosser revealed more information aboutthe handsets revealing that Apple will launch all the 4 iPhone 12 variants on October 13thbut only the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 will go on sale sometime in October. The pro variants are delayed and will be shippedin November.
He says Apple’s first shipment of finaliPhone 12 units is going out to distributers on October 5th, the shipments include iPhone12 mini and iPhone 12. So safe to say these two handsets will goon sale first and the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will be delayed to November.
There are a couple of reasons for this. One could be the supply chain issues due tothe pandemic. And the other is Apple doesn’t want to cannibalizethe sales of the Pro models due to the affordable iPhone 12 models. Now you can also see in Prosser’s tweet thatthe base storage of the iPhone 12 and mini is going to be 64GB. Yeah, 64GB in 2020.
In a world where competing smartphones fromother brands are offering 128GB as the base and even 128GB has become the baseline forcheaper and midrange devices, Apple on the other hand is still offering a minuscule 64GBon their flagship lineup.
In an era when music and movies are streamedand photos are saved in the cloud, you can even argue that local storage is an antiquatedsystem. It’s a valid argument if you’re constantlymaking sure your photos are being uploaded to Google Photos or iCloud and are alwaysconnected to the internet to stream YouTube, Netflix, Spotify, or Apple Music.
But the problem is most people don’t do thatand plenty prefer the option to have music and photos at the ready whenever they wantthem. Not to mention games, which are similarlygrowing in size as the phones they run on become more powerful.
Apple Arcade will soon have a hundred gamesat the ready. Apps are becoming bigger too. Photos, in particular, are a frequent storagehog. With the new iPhone’s focus on camera improvements,one would expect that people will be taking even more photos and videos. Especially with features like night mode,deep fusion, and more.
A minute of 4K video at 60 frames per seconduses up to 400MB of space so you would expect how quickly it’s going to fill that 64GB up. And if that isn’t enough, there is also acompetitive argument. Like I’ve said not only is 128GB now the standardamong competitors and some of them even offering 256GB as the base but the higher capacityhas become the baseline for cheaper midrange devices.
So I don’t think Apple has any reason to justify64GB in 2020. I know storage isn’t particularly fun or excitingto talk about, but it plays a critical role in ensuring you can use your device how youwant with all of your apps, games, movies, etc.
I know some people are going to defend theidea of 64GB on this phone and probably these are the type of people who use a smartphonelike a feature phone and for them, even 32GB is enough but for the rest, 128GB should bestandard and it’s about time Apple understands this.
Thankfully, though at least the Pro modelswill start at 128GB. Anyway let me know what do you think aboutthis down in the comments and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…peace out!
