And if you think that this might “just be another hoax,” think again. Apple hasn’t been very secretive of their plans; in fact, back in December of 2018, they have submitted a total of five (5) Touch ID patent filings.
Not just that, they also showed that users’ fingerprints wouldn’t simply be scanned—it’s going to be modeled in 3D and it’s going to be mapped.
What other upgrades would the 2020 iPhone have?
These things are what should make iPhone loyal users to skip this year’s upgrade. Apple already leaked their plans of delivering the best iPhone there is in the year 2020, why? Because of the following upgrades:
Bigger and smaller screen sizes
Apple confirmed that in the new iPhone next year, they will be doing some resizing; shrinking their 5.8-inch model to just 5.4 and magnifying the 6.5 to 6.7. Why? Well, because Apple plans on fitting it on every user’s preference.

Moreover, the OLED feature would be the standard design across all iPhones which is a big boost in their arsenal.
No more notch
In addition to the adjustments with the screens, Apple also confirmed that they will be introducing a no-notch design for the 2020 iPhone. Yes, so it will not have notches which will be perfect for a lot of activities.
As per Credit Suisse, Apple is currently in the works of finalizing a full-screen display with a new “under-screen, TrueDepth” camera.
Switch to USB-C
Another thing that the iPhone 11 should worry about is the fact that the 2020 iPhone is set to be switched from the original and current lightning cord to a USB Type-C charger. This would make the iPhone charging exceptional and more accessible as many other devices share the USB Type-C cord.
Last but definitely not the least is Apple’s biggest and best move yet—introduce the 5G network in iPhones. According to some leaks from MacRumors, Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple Insider confirmed that Apple is upgrading three (3) of its 2020 iPhones to 5G, making its connection more reliable and much faster.
