2020 will bring big changes to the Phone and we’re still finding some hidden treasures in Apple’s betas let’s get right to the core of this week’s Apple news and rumors 2020 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the iPhone and now we’re hearing Apple may go even bigger with this lineup and smaller let me explain this week long time Apple analyst Michiko cited in MacRumors said Apple will change the size of the screen in this year Salina so it would move to a 5 point 4 inch 6 point 7 inch and 6.1 inch display meaning the 20/20 10s sequel would actually shrink from 5.8 inches to 5 point 4 inches while the tennis max would grow from 6.5 inches to an even more massive 6 point 7 inch display now this coincides with what we’d already heard from digit Times a few months back so the fact that it’s getting repeated is a pretty good sign that it could be true by the looks of it apples not gonna change the design on the 2019 iPhones very much so 2020 might be the year to wait for if you’re looking for an all new iPhone some other rumors had said that they’re going to be all oullette including that 10 our sequel and maybe some flat edges on the side like the new iPad pro design maybe that smaller knotch potentially some different materials on the back most importantly though 2020 is also the year Apple’s rumored to be making that switch to 5g thanks to that recent agreement reached with Qualcomm after a lengthy legal dispute according to the report though only two of the models the higher end ones would have the 5g connectivity so no 5g for the 10r sequel also no foldable iPhone in the works for 2020 at least not that we’re hearing yet and it could be that Apple’s waiting for 2021 to launch a foldable iPhone or it’s just scratching that idea altogether and learning from Samsung’s mistakes with two developers Vedas out in the wild and a public beta release coming soon there’s still a lot more to discover about Apple’s new software updates that will be coming to your Apple devices in September but the second developers beta in iOS helps clear up at least one of the questions that we had after the release of the first one what happens to 3d touch so let me explain last week we talked about it because in the first developers beta the 3d touch functionality had been replaced by a long press or a haptic touch like functionality leading us to believe that Apple might be gearing up to remove this feature altogether from  the 2019 iPhone lineup like what it did with the iPhone 10 our good news for all you 3d touch lovers out there though and I know there’s a lot of you is that it’s back in the second beta in its full functionality as pointed out by Apple Insider so yeah last week was just me and a bunch of other people on the internet reading way too much into the beta it happens sorry the other interesting change about the second beta is that it’s now available via over-the-air update so in the past it had only been available via a direct update and then an iTunes restore this one from 9 to 5 Mac the highlights on the other hand haven’t changed much between betas of course you still have dark mode and iOS 13 and those video editing tools in the Photos app better file support and multitasking in iPad OS and the list goes on and

Now on to the watch os front we know that watch OS 6 is going to make the Apple watch even more independent from the iPhone this because it’s bringing a standalone app store to the Apple watch and now the second beta release provide even more proof of this according to MacRumors the second beta makes it possible to get over-the-air software updates directly onto the Apple watch so now under the settings menu in general there will be a new option called software update just like in the iPhone except now it’s directly on to the watch before you had to go to the iPhone and download it there first and then transfer it to the Apple watch the other exciting software change coming to the Apple watch is that you’ll soon be able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the able to remove native apps from the Apple watch you can currently delete third-party apps pretty easily by just long pressing from the app menu but now it will apply to some of Apple’s own pre-installed apps according to TechCrunch so I’m gonna say goodbye to the breath’ app finally for mocking me about not being Zen enough I know how to breathe I don’t need reminders I appreciate the effort this is also great news for all you dudes out there who don’t want the cycle app cluttering your app tray once that launches in September so now for the question what feature are you most excited to try out in September dark mode on iOS voice memos on the Apple watch the cycle app I know you want it video editing it can be anything from watch OS to Mac OS but you can only pick one so leave your pics on the comments section below tweet text smoke signals you know the drill this week we learned an important lesson about reading into the beta’s but that didn’t stop us from placing our best guesses about this restore screen from last week I asked you guys whether you thought the new screen and iOS 13 beta hinted at a change from USBC to lightning port on the next iPhone or if it was a USBC tube lightning fast charger in the box of the new phones mister argon legends points out that there is a simple which points to a Mac no plus so the iPhone will be shipped with a lightning to USB C and not with the USB a cable Robert Morin says since the new air pods use lightning cable I would bet that Apple will keep lightning for this year air pods 3 and iPhone 2020 will certainly switch to USB C and this one seemed to be the consensus among most of you that this is actually referring to that fast charging cable however there were some optimists in the bunch like ion Haryana and I’m sorry if I mispronounced your name who says it is not a USB type-c to lightning cable because the old recovery screen shows a lightning connector and there are no lightning connectors on a laptop the connector that appears on the device is  for the device itself USB type-c is coming on the iPhones for sure thanks again to everyone who sent in their comments this week and don’t forget to tell me about that one feature you’re most excited to try out in Apple’s new software updates next week we’re going to take a closer look at some of these features so come back for more apple core.
