Render confirms the presence of lidar in the new model
In the US, the announcement of new Apple products starts, but a few minutes before the event on the Twitter page with the characteristic name EverythingApplePro, an interesting image of two new Apple products at once appeared – the iPhone 12 Pro and the AirTag.

We already talked in detail about AirTag yesterday – today Apple must confirm all these facts. The iPhone 12 is not expected to be announced today, but it is worth taking a look. Moreover, for comparison, the model of the current generation – iPhone 11 Pro is presented nearby. As you can see, smartphones differ in both the frame of the body and the camera unit: in the iPhone 12 Pro, an additional hole for the lidar has appeared at the bottom – it should improve autofocusing in difficult shooting conditions (for example, in the dark).
According to another trusted insider, the UWB (Ultra Wideband) technology that underlies AirTag functionality will be implemented in many other Apple products – Apple Watch Series 6, HomePod Mini, AirPods Studio, AirPods Pro, AirPods 3, iPad Pro, Apple TV, AirPod, Mac laptops, and of course the iPhone 12.
