Apple is all set to launch the new iPhone later tonight at 10:30 PM, however it seems like we already have a huge hint about what to expect. The hint comes from Apple’s own iCloud website where icons for the new iPhone were uploaded to the server. While the images were not of high resolution, it still gave away vital information about the next iPhone. When comparing the new icons to the iPhone 11 icons, you can see a slight difference that iPhone fans have been wanting for a while.
The image was first spotted by AppleSWUpdates on Twitter and later confirmed by 9to5Mac who was able to get these images in better quality. Both sources confirm that Apple has added four new icons to the server which sort of confirms that Apple will be launching four new models later tonight.
The icons were discovered in the iCloud web apps and also on the Find My app. When comparing the new iPhone icons to the iPhone 11 and the iPhone XR, the first thing you will notice is that the edges of the new devices are different. It has been long rumoured that the new iPhones will use the classic body design of the iPhone 4 where it is more square than curved at the edges.
The other major hint that one can notice is that at least one particular model will have a slightly smaller notch which has been requested by iPhone users for a very long time. This is good news as it creates more room on the display for content without obstruction by a massive notch. There could be a chance that these icons are just placeholders for the time being as previous rumours have suggested the new iPhones are expected to remove the notch entirely and use a similar design as the iPad Pro.
It is also worth pointing out that these icons are identified as “iPhone13,x” which basically confirms these icons are meant to represent the new iPhones. To give a better perspective, the iPhone 11 was internally identified as “iPhone12,x.”
Apart from the new iPhone, another asset was uploaded to Apple’s servers that suggests a new product that is planned to be announced tonight. There is an asset of a new unknown Apple TV known as “AppleTV11,1.” Previous rumours have suggested that Apple has been working on updating the Apple TV with one of its new SoCs for better gaming performance. The new Apple TV is rumoured to be powered by the A12Z or A14 Bionic Chipset that will significantly improve its GPU performance. This will enable Apple to position the new Apple TV as a gaming console as well. It will also be able to run Apple Arcade games more efficiently with better graphics performance as well.
