iPhone 12 Launch Date in October, However New iPads in September? 2020 is Really Strange

“Where’s the iPhone 12?” That is what everybody goes to be asking us on Tuesday, September Eight when new iPads and the Apple Watch 6 arrive without a brand new iPhone.

That is at the least our evaluation of the world’s collective response if sometimes-right Apple leaker, Jon Prosser, has nailed the timeline. He tweeted a list of the weeks Apple is anticipated to announce and launch new {hardware}.

It is not excellent news when you’re desperate to get your fingers on the rumored iPhone 12 Pro 5G. That model will come last within the scheme of issues.

If true, the Apple Watch 6 and new iPads will come first – the week of September 7 –and arrive with significantly lower than regular fanfare on account of Covid-19, doubtlessly as stealthy reveals by way of press launch like we noticed with the iPhone SE 2020 in March.

Now, assuming Prosser’s launch window is correct, we’re totally anticipating the date to be Tuesday, September 8, as a result of September 7 is a Monday and vacation within the US (Labor Day). It is also the timeframe that Apple often has with a big launch occasion. However, no new iPhone is talked about for this first launch date.

Usher within the iPhone 12 delay

The iPhone 12 launch date is claimed to be 5 weeks later, the week of October 12 (it may very well be Tuesday, October 13). This is not a giant shock, as Apple, in its earnings name last month, made the uncommon transfer of asserting the iPhone 12 delay.

The iPhone 12 reveal is claimed to be coming at an ‘occasion’. Whether or not that is in-person launch occasion or one other ‘Apple live stream’ video like we noticed with WWDC 2020 stays to be seen. We’re anticipating 4 variations of the brand new iPhone to point out up.

Some Pre-orders launch the identical week – we’re predicting October 16. Apple has a historical past of placing up pre-orders the Friday instantly after a launch occasion. And the iPhone 12 is claimed to go on sale the subsequent week – so Friday, September 23.

However, in keeping with Prosser, the high-end iPhone 12 Pro will not be obtainable in October in any way. As an alternative, this model will get a November pre-order and launch date, with the leaker saying “no precise date yet” is “within the system.”

November may be very late for a brand new iPhone, particularly the variations (we’re anticipating two sizes) that early adopters need. The Pro is rumored to have the quickest 5G speeds and the largest screens. However this is not the first time Apple’s newest and best iPhone has slipped into November. The iPhone X launched on Friday, November 3, 2017.

Prosser nailed the iPhone SE 2020 launch date and had the iMac 27-inch (2020) announcement forward of time, however he did get many Apple WWDC leaks incorrect, and notes that the dates may at all times change on Apple’s end.
