By this time tomorrow, Apple will finally have unveiled the iPhone 12. Most years, Apple will withdraw the curtain on its latest flagship phone before the end of September, but due to the new coronavirus pandemic, the company changed its plans and launch. was pushed back to mid-October. We expect to see four iPhone models on Tuesday at this event, but rumors suggest that only two will be available this month, as Apple has opted for a staggered launch. But no matter when each model arrives, an analyst already knows which one will be the most popular.

Kuo believes that the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will each account for 20% of the allotment for Apple’s new phones this fall, while the standard iPhone 12 will represent 40% of shipments.
