Apple fans are always looking forward to what the company’s newest release would be, from iPhone 12 improvements to their clean energy goals. With the help of 9to5mac, here are some details to know.
According to 9to5mac’s reliable source, the iPhone 12 will be using a new ball-based voice coil motor for the camera, shying away from its current spring-based design. This feature will provide improvements to autofocus. The leaked size specifications also suggest that the phone will be thinner than its predecessor, from 8.1 mm to 7.4 mm. Additionally, the size of the bezels is shrinking by approximately 40 percent on all four sides, from 2.5 mm down to 1.5 mm.
Just like many releases this year, Apple is rumored to delay iPhone 12’s release due to the pandemic, as late as November.
Apple has also recently announced that it will be carbon neutral by the end of 2030, slashing its greenhouse gas emissions by 75%. Although the company has been contributing in reducing the carbon footprint for the last couple of years, they seem to be more committed to the standards even more. The company has called this “a planet-size plan.”
Apple’s 10-year road map will lower emissions by using innovative actions like “Low carbon product design,” wherein, “Apple will continue to increase the use of low carbon and recycled materials in its products, innovate in product recycling, and design products to be as energy efficient as possible.”
“Apple will remain at 100 percent renewable energy for its operations — focusing on creating new projects and moving its entire supply chain to clean power,” Apple added.
