Apple has announced the launch of a new product on October 13, where it is expected to unveil the next model of the iPhone. The program starts at 10am PT / 1pm ET and airs online due to the spread of coronavirus. These events are usually held in person at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.
The press invitation said “Hi, Speed” to indicate that the rumors about 5G iPhones are true, as 5G is the next generation cellular network that will give faster data speeds to things like downloading and streaming games and movies.
Apple announced the new Apple Watch Series 6, iPad Air and 8th generation iPods at an event in September, but the iPhone did not.
Apple usually announces new iPhones in September, but the company has previously warned that new iPhones will be delayed this year due to delays in production related to the coronavirus. Apple CEO Cfo Luca Maistry has warned that Apple is postponing its third-quarter earnings call in July. “As you know, we started selling new iPhones in September last year,” he said. “This year, we will make the supply available in a few weeks.”
Apple will announce four new iPhone 12 models this year, including two “regular” iPhone 12 devices and two iPhone 12 Pro models. They are expected to feature new designs with sharp edges around the corners similar to Apple’s new iPad Air and iPad Pro.
The new design is similar to the 2010 iPhone 4, said TF International Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo, a leading Apple analyst. The screen sizes include the 5.4-inch model, known as the iPhone Mini, which, according to some rumors, is a larger model with two 6.1-inch screens and a 6.7-inch display, according to Kuo. The Apple Box does not have headphones or a charger.
Bloomberg reported in April The iPhone 12 Pro models feature a new 3D lidar sensor and three new cameras for augmented reality. The lidar sensor was the first to be launched IPad Pro models earlier this year.
Kuyo said The new iPhone 12 phones support 5G networks, although it is unclear whether they will all support the fastest 5G MMwave networks, or whether they will only support the wider, but slower 5G networks. Now you can no longer see fast speeds where you live. In some cases 5G is currently slower than 4G, but Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T are building their networks to increase availability.
