Apple reportedly has plans to introduce at least four new iPhones this year and some are inspired by the latest iPad Pro.

The premium versions of tech giant's upcoming devices will reportedly have flat steel edges as opposed to the curved ones on the iPhone 11. The corners will be round, similar to the iPhone 5 and current iPad Pro design, according to a Bloomberg report published Monday.

It's unclear whether the budget models will have the same new design. Apple doesn't comment on rumors surrounding new product offerings.

The successor to the iPhone 11 Pro Max will likely have a screen that's slightly larger than 6.5 inches as Apple moves to eliminate the notch. Two premium smartphones will have three rear cameras and they'll house Apple's LiDAR scanner which was introduced in the 2020 iPad Pro, the report said.

Flagship iPhone models usually launch in the fall, though Bloomberg says some models will likely be released several weeks later than usual. Apple doesn't expect the ongoing coronavirus pandemic to cause major delay, Bloomberg reports.

Prices and color variations remain unclear. There are also rumors that Apple's next budget-friendly iPhone, a sequel to the SE, is on track to be released soon.
