Apple will launch its event on Oct 13th, where it’s expected to reveal the next model of the iPhone 12. The event will start at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET and will be streamed online.
According to news reports, there will be four iPhones in three display sizes which could come in at 5.4, 6.7, and 6.1 inches (x2). The 2020 iPhones will feature major updates, introducing some of the first design changes that we’ve seen since the iPhone X was released in 2017.
In addition, iPhone 12 series will use the company’s latest mobile chipset, the A14 Bionic. While that chipset stacks up favorably to the silicon used in Apple’s last-generation iPad Air.
The Apple iPhone 12 models may be coming with a new design, some renders show squarer edges more like the iPhone 4 or 5 compared to the rounded edges we have been used to since the iPhone 6.
According to IDC data, Apple’s iPhone shipments grew 11.2% on the year during the April-to-June quarter, making it the only smartphone maker that saw unit sales increase amid the global pandemic.
Moreover, some market watchers had expected the company to revamp the model each year to revive sales
Noteworthy, Apple started producing 5G iPhones in mid-September. The production of the 5G phones will start with at least one models, the lowest-priced version with a 6.1-inch OLED screen and two rear cameras.
This model accounts for around 40% of the production orders Apple has placed for 5G handsets. The most expensive model will be the 6.7-inch, triple-camera 5G iPhone, according to Nikkei report.
