Display Technology – As per some sources, iPhone 12 models are to be upgraded from LCD to OLED display.

iPhone 12: Connectivity 

We are also expecting iPhone 12 models to support 5G connectivity. However, there are some differing opinions on whether all the models will be enabled with 5G or only the Pro models will have 5G support. We can only wait and watch for now. 

Meanwhile, there are also a lot of speculations whether the Lightning port would be replaced by a USB-C type charging facility? Simultaneously, if certain reports are believed then, there are also some talks ongoing about Apple migrating the iPhone to a port-less, wireless charging-only model in the near future.

The smartphone manufacturing industry is among the most rapidly progressing industries of the world with breakthrough features being infused into the smartphone models in such a manner that it seems as if it is some cakewalk. Hence, it is essential that big brands like Apple lead the show by upgrading the iPhone features with every new release.
