The iPhone 12 is expected to be presented in a few weeks. There are reports that the cult cell phone is struggling with quality problems, of course at the wrong time. Specifically, it’s about the camera, reveals a well-known Apple expert.
Even if the market launch of the new iPhone generation is postponed a bit according to Apple, the presentation should take place in September as usual. The fact that the iPhone 12 allegedly struggles with quality problems, as reported by the well-connected Apple analyst Ming Chin Kuo, naturally makes one prick up the ears shortly before the expected presentation.
Problems with the camera coating of the iPhone 12
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max are affected, reports Apple Insider. The coatings on the camera modules, which are apparently splintering, are said to cause problems. The coating of the ultra-wide angle camera is said to be particularly affected. The bug is said to have been discovered during tests in very hot and humid environments.
The new iPhone is apparently not expected to be late despite the quality problems. Another manufacturer is said to be ready to replace the defective coatings on the camera modules.
IPhone users with iOS 14 can look forward to these features:
iPhone 12: Apple is planning four models with different display sizes
Apple is expected to launch a total of four smartphones this year. A regular iPhone 12 and a Pro variant, each with a 6.1-inch display, a larger iPhone 12 Pro Max with a diagonal display of 6.7 inches, and a smaller iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch display. The two 6.1-inch models should make the start, the smaller and larger models should follow a few weeks later.
On the technical side, there is speculation about a smaller gap (“notch”) and a slightly shrunk battery. A back with magnets is also to come – even if it is not yet clear what this could be used for.
