  • iPhone 12 mini
    • Pre-order date: November 6

Apple also announced dates for the new HomePod mini:

    6

Today’s iPhone announcements continue what is evolving to be an unusually widespread product release plan. What was not mentioned today is a launch date for the iPad Air, a release date for macOS Big Sur or Apple Silicon Macs, the first thing Apple said at WWDC would be released before the end of the year. I suspect that as a result we will see another Apple event in 2020, probably in November.
