Although previous rumors have been circulating about the miniaturization of the notch on the iPhone 12, it may well remain unchanged this year, according to recent models. In addition, Apple may go so far as to remove the wired earphones contained in the box of its future iPhones.
The rumors around the iPhone 12 seemed too good to be true. Indeed, they were whispering that the next iPhone, in addition to having a new straight-edged chassis – much like the recent iPad Pro – could finally reduce the size of their Face ID slot. Finally, new rumors, a little less optimistic, suggesting that Apple has no plans to reduce the size of the notch, even though it now looks aesthetically obsolete compared to the discreet punches found on a plethora of competitors.

So, after seeing mock-ups of the new iPhones with the same type of notch we’ve been used to since the 2017 iPhone X, the EverythingApplePro YouTuber claims that the notch won’t be miniaturized this year, relying on new CAD schematics.
In addition, EverythingApplePro also says that only the iPhone 12 Pro “Max” and its supposed 6.7-inch screen should be equipped with the famous LiDAR sensor, which appeared on the iPad Pro 2020. As a reminder, the iPhone 2020 lineup is expected to consist of four models, including a 5.4-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 “Max”, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and finally this 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro “Max” (the names of course remain unofficial at the time of writing).
Nevertheless, the presence of LiDAR on the top-of-the-line model is not yet a certainty, according to another renowned leaker. Indeed, Ben Geskin reacted to the EverythingApplePro announcement by saying that the hull manufacturers “don’t need the data on the layout of the front and rear cameras. So they just used the old information. We have to wait. Final data in July. »

No headphones in the iPhone 12 box?
More bad news for those interested in the iPhone 12: he’s whispering that Apple is planning to remove its wired headphones from the device’s box. Several names such as Ming-Chi Kuo and Dan Ives have made this assumption. The goal would be to lower the production costs of the smartphone while boosting sales of AirPods. Nevertheless, in Europe, Apple would then have to face European Union regulations requiring manufacturers to include headphones in the smartphone box before protecting consumers against radio emissions from telephone communications. It remains to be seen whether Apple is indeed planning to remove its EarPods from the box of iPhone 12s, and whether European customers might be able to avoid this measure.
