iPhone 12 Release Date and Features of Apple official mobile lineup 2020. Apple has issued invites for iPhone 12 launch where the Cupertino tech company will introduce the latest iPhone models with various specifications and prices. The October 13 event invitations sent to journalists on the company’s official website. The main theme of this year’s showcase is centered around the “Hi, Speed” slogan, which indicates that the focus will be on the hardware performance packed inside the new smartphone.
Prevailing extraneous circumstances related to a global pandemic have forced Apple to push its marquee presentation date from its usual September slot. Instead of unveiling the highly anticipated devices on their yearly scheduled time, the iPhone maker thought it would be a more rational move to show new handsets at a later date. Here are the details.
iPhone 12 – What’s New:
The word “Speed” mentioned on the invites alludes to the fifth-generation mobile network support is coming with the introduction of the iPhone 12 series. Apple is finally embracing the advanced 5G modem inside the latest iPhone devices. And with that arrives the highest possible quality of mobile network connectivity and brisk speeds.
According to the most recent leaked reports, we will be embracing a total of four new iPhone models. The lower-tier lineup will include a smaller-sized iPhone 12 sporting a 5.4-inch display to a bigger iPhone 12 iteration featuring a 6.1-inch screen.
Next, there is the premium smartphone series consisting of an iPhone 12 Pro 6.1-inch device and the beefier 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max, which is rumored to be the only model coming with a 120Hz OLED display.
Here are the four new iPhone 12 models expected to launch this year:
- iPhone 12 mini (5.4-inch)
- iPhone 12 (6.1-inch)
- iPhone 12 Pro (6.1-inch)
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7-inch)
According to reports, the top-end model will be available only in a few countries weeks. Countries being mentioned include the United States, Japan, and South Korea. The main reason this makes sense is that not a lot of countries have the data network infrastructure up to a sufficiently advanced degree on a large enough scale to accommodate the highest possible 5G standard capable of reliably handling high speeds. This fact makes it pointless to bring a device that is composed of high-end internals at a price point outside the reach of most people in markets where it would make little sense business-wise anyway.
What Apple Will Launch October 13:
Apart from the iPhone 12 models, Apple is going to lift the curtains on the following devices:
- AirPods Studio
- AirPower Charging Station
- HomePod Mini Smart Speaker
- AirTag Search AirTag
Apple has stopped selling third-party audio devices and accessories from brands like Bose on its website and stores. This step suggests that the company is on course to present its own audio products.
