Apple looks to make India its export hub

11 July 2019

Citing a Counterpoint Research analyst, the cited source reveals that Apple's exports from India are now running at low speed, with around 100,000 units now shipped to select markets on the Old Continent. The curiosity of what to expect in the future iPhones has been increased lately - thanks to analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo and JP Morgan.

Kuo's predictions about next year's iPhone possibly having a smaller notch is one of several rumours that have surfaced so far about Apple's 2020 smartphones. The iPhone 11 phones coming in mid-September are all expected to feature the same display design as the iPhone XS and XR phones, notch included.

According to CNBC, Apple is expected to launch three iPhones with OLED screens, with display sizes of 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch. Or at least if two new rumors are true. Kuo also claims that the rear-facing camera in the 2020 iPhones may have a seven-piece lens system. It's about time Apple shifts away from the notch which debuted way back in 2017; which is a lifetime ago in the tech world.

Following a meeting with suppliers in Apple's Asian supply chain in May, Barclays also recently claimed that the 2020 iPhone models may feature acoustic fingerprint technology which will support full-screen Touch ID. Many felt that it hinders the smartphone experience and prevents an edge-to-edge display. The latest hint this may happen comes from an industry report on revenue performance for manufacturers making the modules that enable 3D Touch, stating that although "Apple may remove 3D touch sensors from all 2019 iPhone devices", sales for these companies may still grow.

It's not the first time we're hearing rumors about Apple ditching Face ID in order to return to Touch ID, in one form or another.

Credit Suisse also says that Apple will start to use optical fingerprint readers and that a future iPhone could offer both the Face ID system and the optical fingerprint reader, although this sounds rather unusual.
