When will Apple launch its most awaited iPhone 12 series? The tech giant previously confirmed that the launch of the new iPhones has been delayed this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Earlier a few reports suggested that the iPhone 12 series will go official by the end of September but new reports tell a completely different story. The iPhone 12 could launch in the second week of next month.
According to some of the latest reports coming from Jon Prosser, Apple Insider and MacRumours, the iPhone 12 launch event will take place on October 13 while the pre-order is said to begin on October 16. The same reports suggest that the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini will hit the store on October 23, whereas, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will release in the month of November.
The Pro models have likely been delayed due to a complex structure and build. Several reports also suggest that the cause of the delay is the delay in the start of manufacturing due to the COVID-19 lockdowns earlier this year.
We recently also got to see a leaked internal video presentation, hosted by Marc Allera, the CEO of British Telecom’s consumer brands BT and EE, in which it is said that, “We are just days away from Apple’s next major launch, a 5G iPhone, which will be a huge boost for 5G.” Allera in the video also confirms that Apple will be holding the iPhone 12 launch event on October 13.
If the reports are correct, this will be the second fall event held by Apple in 2020. It recently held its “Time Flies” event, where it launched the new Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE, iPad Air 4, iPad 8th gen and the Apple One subscription. After the iPhone event, Apple is expected to host another event, to unveil the first Macs with Apple Silicon.
According to a recent report by the Fast Company, the 6.7-inch iPhone will support the fastest mmWave 5G, whereas, rest of the smaller models will support Sub-6 type 5G, which offers lower speeds, but a wider range. The mmWave 5G variant of the iPhone will only be made available in the United States, South Korea and Japan.
