Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is being held online and will broadcast at 6pm UK time. It’s the first time when Apple introduces new iPhone models in October.
According to Bloomberg, Apple will stagger the iPhone launches in 2020, with the more affordable 5.4 and 6.1-inch devices set to ship out ahead of the more expensive Pro devices.
DigiTimes has suggested the two 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models could come out first in October, with the 6.7 and 5.4-inch models to follow. One 6.1-inch iPhone and the 5.4-inch iPhone are expected to be more affordable devices, while 6.7-inch iPhone and the other 6.1-inch iPhone will be “Pro” devices.
iPhone 12 pre-orders could be open on October 16, and the first iPhone 12 shipments and an official launch could happen on October 23.
