iPhone 12: everything we think we know about Apple’s 2020 5G iPhones

  iPhone 12: everything we think we know about Apple’s 2020 5G iPhones New design, new sizes, 5G, all-OLED, and moreIf you’ve been hanging on to your first-generation iPhone SE because you just love its squared-off edges, the newest iPhones could be the ones for you — there are already a lot of rumors pointing to a brand new design with squared edges instead of rounded ones. (If you’re keeping that SE because of its smaller size, there might be good news for you this year, too.

We now know the iPhone 12 will be announced on Oct. Japanese financial news outlet Nikkei Asian Review reported that Apple was starting production for its 5G iPhones in mid-September, meaning products are coming down the pipeline sooner than later.

When will the new iPhone come out ? It now looks extremely likely that the iPhone 12 will be announced on Tuesday 13 October 2020. For that reason the reliability of the images is open to dispute, but they fit with current theories about the iPhone 12 design - namely, that it will have flat

Although Apple held a September virtual event (here's everything Apple announced), those expecting iPhones were disappointed -- the event focused on the new Apple Watch 6, Apple Watch SE and iPads instead. The announcement date for the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Max and possible 12 Pro Max (or the iPhone 12 Mini?) remains up in the air. Note that Apple has not confirmed the names of the phones, but we'll go with those for now. Our best guess, however, as to when Apple will announce the phones is either Oct. 13 or 14.

We 've narrowed the iPhone 12 announcement date down to two potential dates in October. What we do know , however, is that the iPhone was definitely delayed "a few weeks" from its Let us know in the comments below if you think these dates are likely or if Apple will choose another date altogether.

Before we explain why, note that Apple has not released any official information and didn't respond to a request for comment. What we do know, however, is that the iPhone was definitely delayed "a few weeks" from its usual September timeline. Even before the company confirmed this back in July, we knew the COVID-19 outbreak forced suppliers in China to shut down or operate on limited capacity. This affected not only Apple's inventory in September, but it will have an affect on sales, too. Apple also closed its US retail stores, though now some have reopened in limited ways.

The iPhone 12 models coming in 2020 will use an Apple-designed 5-nanometer A14 chip manufactured by TSMC. This year's iPhone 12 models will not ship out in September as usual due to delays caused by the global health crisis. Apple instead plans to introduce the iPhones in October

iPhone 12 release date – when is the next iPhone out ? Apple hosted a special event on September 15 but the iPhone 12 was not mentioned. We did see two new iPads and Apple Watch at the event though. Instead, most recent leaks suggest that Apple will launch the next iPhone in early October.

As for why we picked a date in early- to mid-October, there are a few reasons. Japanese financial news outlet Nikkei Asian Review reported that Apple was starting production for its 5G iPhones in mid-September, meaning products are coming down the pipeline sooner than later. Apple will also want enough devices to move in time for the holiday season and Black Friday. Lastly, it's in Apple's best interest to pick a date where the likelihood of being swallowed up by even bigger news is low. Though no day in 2020 is guaranteed to be a slow news day, the US presidential election will be held on Nov. 3 and will really heat up in the second half of October.

That leaves us with the first two weeks of October and because Apple likes to hold its events on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, that gives us Oct. 6, 7, 13 and 14. It's looking increasingly unlikely that an event could take place this week, since there hasn't been an official invitation sent by Apple yet. That leaves Oct. 13 and 14, so that's what we're going with.
