Apple‘s forthcoming iPhone 12 is rumored to take design cues from its latest iPad. An anonymous source told Bloomberg that the redesign will borrow elements from its impressive new iPad Pro.

The newest model is rumored to feature stainless steel edges (as opposed to the current curved design) and sharply rounded corners like the iPad Pro, which came out in 2018.

The anonymous source revealed that, much like the iPhone 5 design, the new handsets will likely incorporate a flat-screen rather than the sloping edges on current models.

As previously reported, the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro Max will include three cameras on the back while the lower-end models will still have two. The 6.7-inch Pro model will include new sensor-shift image stabilization technology and a new camera model for the wide-angle lens (dubbed 7P). Meanwhile, all the phones will receive an upgrade to their processor, which sources claim will speed up artificial intelligence and AR tasks.

Due to coronavirus, the follow-up to the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will apparently drop weeks after the normal mid-September release date.
