Apple unveils the new iPhone on October 13

Apple has finally sent out the invitations to the iPhone unveiling event, which will take place on October 13. We’ll probably see the latest round of iPhones, tentatively called the iPhone 12, at the event, even though everything else is in the air. Apple teased the event with the line “Hello, speed” on the invitation.

Yes, it turns out that the rumor date was correct. It also matches the information leaked in August which suggested that the Apple Watch and iPad were unveiled in September before an iPhone unveiling in October.

We do not know much about the iPhone 12 so far, but rumor has it that we could see up to four new phones at the event. These have so far been called iPhone 12 (5.4 inches), iPhone 12 Max (6.1 inches), iPhone 12 Pro (6.1 inches) and iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches). Other likely announcements include 5G support and a new chassis design that is somewhat similar to the iPhone 4. Another detail that is allegedly leaked is that the new iPhones will be released at different times. Pre-orders for the two iPhone 12s (Vanilla and Max) will reportedly go live during the show and ship next week, while pre-orders for the iPhone 12 Pro devices will not go live until some time in November.

It is not clear if we will see other hardware at the event, but most of it will undoubtedly be iPhone-centric. There are rumors that we will see some new over-the-ear AirPods Studio headphones, AirTag Bluetooth trackers and potentially a smaller HomePod. There is also a chance that we could see the new “Apple Silicon” Macs, which were to be launched a bit this year.

This is later than Apple usually reveals its new phones – September is usually the favorite launch month. However, probably due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the main hardware rejection has been delayed, even though Apple held an event in September, where it unveiled new Apple Watches, new iPads and Apple Air. Just like that event, the event will be completely virtual. The event starts at 10 PDT and we will see it all.
