As summer draws to a close, we are entering the technology launch calendar new iPhone season. Before we even officially find out what Apple will reveal, the question that my friends, family and readers always ask me is: Is it worth upgrading to a new iPhone?
I don’t know yet. Hah. The rumors, however, are approaching hardware changes to the iPhone screen, which are likely to arrive in the same sizes we saw on the iPhone 12 series. – something recorded in Bloomberglatest report.
We might get the technology of a constantly on screen, which uses a battery-efficient 120Hz screen that should look smooth, while offering information and notifications on the lock screen without waking up the iPhone. Otherwise, at least for now, we expect improvements to the camera’s software features, a (predictably) faster mobile chip, and perhaps stronger MagSafe magnets that will keep your peripherals locked.

The first smartphone with a Snapdragon 888+ processor.
If they are not robotic dogs, this is another smartphone. The Mi Mix 4 is Xiaomi’s thinnest ceramic unibody smartphone to date, with a 6.67-inch 2,400 x 1,080 screen that hides a 20-megapixel selfie camera under the glass.
