every year around September.

various sources, it is to help iPhone 12 to actively map its surroundings, it to 15 ft. This is going
to be laser-based, very unlike the 25-50 cm range of the dot projector-based 3D mapping used in
Face ID on the front camera of current iPhones. A 3 D camera is expected to help with Portrait
mode besides helping with augmented reality (AR). Other than that, there shall a 12MP +
12MP+ 12MP rear lenses with Quad-LED True Tone Flash and also an image resolution of 4000 x
3000 pixels. The front camera would have a 12 MP lens with Retina Flash with the capability of
capturing bright and detailed pictures.

11 Pro. There remains time to change, still it Apple is focused on making more of internal

Max shall have 6.7 inches, bigger than the 6.5 inches of iPhone 11 Max.

USB-C. Apple is expected to shift the iPhone to a port less, wireless charging the only model in a few years. So, introducing USB-C for such a short time makes no sense.
