Apple has set a date for the long-awaited event where the new iPhone 12 will launch. The device, which is supposed to include 5G wireless connectivity and square edges will unload to the world on October 13 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Apple usually announces its next smartphones in September, but the company has been hampered by production delays this year due to the coronavirus pandemic that has disrupted its manufacturing plants in China.
The event called “Hi, Speed” could also give consumers the opportunity to experience other products firsthand, including a new over-ear headphones and location tags called AirTags.
Last month, Apple confirmed that iOS users won’t see the new devices until October.
The press invite which dubbed “Hi, Speed”, hints at rumors that the iPhone will be available with 5G capabilities.
The family will include two traditional smartphones and two Pro models, all of which are said to be similar in design to the iPad and 2010 iPhone 4.
TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a leading Apple analyst, predicts its dimensions will include the 5.4-inch model which will be the iPhone mini.
Kuo suggests there will be a bigger version – two with a 6.1-inch screen and one with a 6.7-inch screen.
