Apple reinvents the phone again.
The first phone to beat the iPhone.
Twice as fast, for half the price and size.
So it’s time to reboot the rumor mill.
In 2019 the iconic Home button with FP scanner will return in an ocean-boiling new innovative 2.5″ pocket version of the iPhone according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. But where is the Home button? You can’t see it, it’s an in-display button. And where’s the notch? Ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, flood illuminator, infrared camera, speaker, microphone, front camera, and dot projector are under the hood.
Kuo’s track record has elevated his Apple predictions to the level of gospel. He’s been called “the most accurate Apple analyst in the world” by Business Insider and the “most reliable industry watcher on the planet when it comes to Apple” by BGR.
What about Apple’s stance on rumors?
Apple enjoys a cult-like following for its platforms, especially following the massive increase in popularity for the brand brought about by the huge increase in sales for all its products that started around the time the company introduced the original iPod in late 2001.
The mass usage of computing devices in everyday life, mixed with Apple’s vertical integration of its products, has helped to bring about this increase in popularity, and combined with a tight-lipped corporate policy about future products, helped foster an interest in the company’s activities.
“We all have responsibility for fake news”
said Eddy Cue, SVP of Internet Software and Services at Apple.
So don’t believe everything you read on the internet just because there is an image with some text next to it.
