The next-generation iPhones are months away, but we’re already hearing a lot of chatter. Thanks to reliable leakster Jon Prosser, we now know the specifications of all the iPhones you can expect this year. The recently announced iPhone SE 2020 has yet to hit a few other markets, but the iPhone 12 seems just around the corner.

We knew the basic details about the iPhone 12, including the triple-camera setup, screen sizes, as well as the nomenclature. Now, we’re getting a deeper dive not just with specifications, but also the pricing.

Keep in mind, there could be four iPhones this year. All of them shall be powered by Apple’s A14 processor and will support 5G.

Starting with the iPhone 12, it’ll have a 5.4-inch OLED display, dual rear cameras, 4GB RAM, and an aluminum build. The 128GB option could cost US$ 649 while the 265GB one would be US$ 749. The iPhone 12 Max on the other hand would sport a bigger 6.1-inch OLED display while all other details shall remain the same as the iPhone 12. Its 128GB could be priced at US$ 749 with the 256GB one at US$ 849.

The iPhone 12 Pro would have a 6.1-inch OLED display and according to EverythingApplePro, the screen will have a 120Hz refresh rate. Apple will call it MotionPro officially. The phone will consist of a steel body and get 6GB RAM. On the rear would be a triple-camera setup along with LiDAR. We’ve seen the same technology on the iPad Pro recently.

It’ll have three configurations: 128GB for US$ 999, 256GB for US$ 1,099, and 512GB for 1,299.

Lastly, the iPhone 12 Pro Max would have a bigger 6.7-inch display while all other internals shall remain the same. The pricing would be US$ 1,099 for 128GB, US$ 1,199 for 256GB, and US$ 1,399 for 512GB.

Please note that these are exceedingly early leaks and should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Apple has now reached 1 billion active iPhones

According to an analyst



How many iPhone users are there right now? Name your best guess. If you answered one billion, you’re probably right. According to an analyst’s estimates, Apple has now reached 1 billion active iPhones, marking a monumental increase in revenue this year.

Knowing Apple’s popularity, it’s surprising that they took this long. This year, the iPhone maker finally reached the milestone. Of note, the analyst, Above Avalon, predicts that Apple reached 1 billion active iPhones last month, before the iPhone 12 series launch.

Adding to the milestone’s impressiveness, Apple’s revenue actually dipped this year, stemming from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Because of income dips and a new work-from-home lifestyle, no one really wanted to buy new phones. Apparently, despite the decreased demand, whatever Apple did sell was enough to push the company above 1 billion.

According to the analyst, Apple has always subsisted on an upgrade system; that is, existing users buying the new models every year. That said, though there are 1 billion active iPhones, it is highly likely that a significant portion of the iPhone-owning population owns more than one iPhone.

With that in mind, the company aims to continue the same tradition by focusing on increasing the value of owning an iPhone. Doing so will propel the company’s growth even further, as the analyst says.

Besides a renewed focus on iPhones, the analyst also predicts that Apple’s wearable market will prove essential in pushing the company to 2 billion active users. Much like how an iPhone user can own multiple iPhones, buying into Apple’s ecosystem increases the likelihood of buying an Apple wearable to go along with it.

Grab introduces new cashless payment through Cash-in With Driver

A new way to go cashless!



Because of the pandemic, Grab’s GrabCar service has adopted cashless payments only. With more people still opting for cash for their commutes, Grab pushes a new feature to make their service safe and reliable — Cash-in with Driver.

This feature allows commuters to use GrabCar by paying cash through the driver. All you have to do is activate your GrabPay wallet during the ride, pay cash to the driver, and receive your change back on your GrabPay wallet.

Grab hopes the new feature allows more commuters to switch gradually towards a cashless lifestyle, and enjoy GrabPay benefits. For instance, there’s GrabRewards points that can be used for certain deals, promos, save on Grab transactions, and make seamless cashless payments across GrabPay’s partners.

Cash-in with Driver will be available on GrabCar 2-seater and 4-seater in Metro Manila. For Cebu and Pampanga, it will be available in GrabBayanihan Car and GrabCar 2-seater. Additionally, it’s expected to come soon on GrabTaxi.

The new feature will fully roll out by November 2020. Simply update your Grab app to the latest version, and you can start embracing a cashless lifestyle. Learn more about Cash-in with Driver via this link.
