- Apple announced that they will hold their second virtual event in the fall of October 13, where the iPhone 12 is expected to make its long-awaited debut.
- Leaks and rumors have indicated that Apple will launch four brand new iPhone models this fall: iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
- You can watch the “Hi, Speed” Apple event on October 13 at 10 a.m. PT / 1:00 PM ET on Apple’s website, the Apple TV app, and probably streaming live on YouTube.
Last month, Apple hosted a virtual event to unveil a series of new devices, but the latest iPhone was nowhere to be seen. We got to see the new iPad, iPad Air and Apple Watch models early on, but for the first time in quite some time, the company did not have a new iPhone to reveal in September, when the new coronavirus pandemic forced Apple to delay the launch within a few few weeks, as CFO Luca Maestri said in a earnings call in late July.
September came and went without any official news regarding Apple̵
According to countless leaks and rumors that led to this announcement, Apple will launch four iPhone 12 models this fall: 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6 , 7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. Based on the invitation (which was sent out to the press members on Tuesday), it seems that speed will be the focus of the event, as the iPhone 12 models will undoubtedly be faster than their predecessors:
As the invitation reveals, Apple will once again host the event at Apple Park, with the livestream beginning at 10 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, October 13th. You’ll be able to stream the event on Apple.com, and provided nothing significant has changed since last month, it’s likely to stream on YouTube as well.
We now know when Apple will show us the iPhone 12 models for the very first time, but the release dates of the new phones are still a mystery. Recently, leaks and analysts have suggested that the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models may be ready to ship earlier than the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which could lead to a shifted launch schedule, as well as how Apple handled the launches of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
All four iPhone 12 models are said to have 5G support and OLED screens. The 5G support is probably what Apple suggests in the invitation. The phones should all be equally compatible devices, but the mini and standard models are expected to have dual-lens cameras, while the Pro models have three-lens cameras.
