Apple has already announced its second online 2020 event to be held on Tuesday, October 13 at 10:00 AM
Since the new "iPad" Air, the "iPad" of the eighthGenerations and Apple Watch Series 6 have already been announced, the October event is expected to be dedicated to Apple's iPhone, and Apple will unveil the new iPhone 12 lineup.
IPhone 12 release
We now know that the official iPhone release date is October 12-13.
In 2020, we expect four new iPhones at oncethree sizes. The iPhone 12, which will be the more affordable Apple smartphone, will come in 5.4 and 6.1 inches. The 5.4-inch iPhone will be the smallest iPhone Apple has released in recent years, and rumored to even be called the iPhone 12 mini.
Flagship models of a higher level,which are expected to be called the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will come in 6.1 and 6.7 inches, with the 6.7-inch iPhone having the largest display size Apple has unveiled to date.
All four iPhones will be equipped with OLED displaysEdge-to-edge with Face ID and TrueDepth front cameras. Despite some early rumors of smaller notches, it doesn't look like the notch is shrinking on most models, but we can expect a proportional notch on the smallest 5.4-inch model. This will be the first time Apple has used OLED display technology in its iPhone lineup.
Apple is also expected to provide support5G for all iPhone 12 models. The new iPhone 2020 lineup will be redesigned to look like the iPad Pro, removing the rounded edges that have been used since the iPhone 6 in favor of squarer, flatter edges.
It is expected that premium iPhonesLiDAR scanners will appear, similar to the LiDAR scanners featured in the iPad Pro. All new iPhones will use the faster 5nm A14 chips that Apple first introduced in the 2020 iPad Air, which should provide significant performance and efficiency gains.
Since 5G technology is expensive, Appleplans to ditch the power adapter and headphones that traditionally come with the phone, instead offering a separate power adapter for purchase. However, a braided Lightning to USB-C cable may be included, and rumors of a power adapter were almost confirmed by the Apple Watch Series 6, which also came without a power adapter.
Apple has been following the tradition for yearslaunch in September, but the global pandemic has delayed the release of new iPhones, and given the delay, Apple has also decided to postpone its traditional September event. Apple confirmed in July that this year's models will be released "a few weeks later" than usual in September.
Rumors suggest that the first iPhone 12 modelswill go on sale in October, possibly shortly after the event, but some models such as the iPhone 12 Pro Max may be delayed even further. We may not see the full iPhone 12 lineup until November.
Apple is also working on over-ear headphoneshigh-end that are part of the AirPods family, offering us an alternative to AirPods and AirPods Pro. The AirPods Studio are rumored to be priced at $ 349 and will offer active noise cancellation and retro styling.
The October event would be the perfect time for Apple to introduce them. The lines will most likely appear on sale by the end of the year.
AirTags are long-standing rumors aboutApple Bluetooth trackers that can be attached to items such as wallets and keys, allowing you to track them right in the Find My app along with your iPhone, iPad and Mac. We have been waiting for AirTags for a long time and will finally be able to see them in October.
Other new items
A more compact and less expensive HomePod is expected to be in development that will complement the existing HomePod and is rumored to be available before the end of the year.
We're also expecting the first Macs this yearArm-based, which may come in the form of an updated MacBook Air and an updated 23- or 24-inch iMac. Most rumors of an Arm-based Mac are expected to launch at the end of the year, so there is no confirmation that we will see them at the October event.
Note that Apple plans to broadcast its fall iPhone event live on its website, YouTube and Apple TV.
