Apple just announced an event on October 13, 2020 where it will likely unveil the highly anticipated iPhone 12.
The company has asked suppliers to build about 75 million iPhone units for this year.
Many iPhone users and enthusiasts have been waiting for the official release of the next gen smartphone, and many are optimistic October 13th is the day.
Apple has announced an event for that date and the event invite simply says “Hi, Speed,” which could potentially be a reference to the 5G support that expected to come with the iPhone 12.
The event will be broadcast from Apple Park, much like the other events Apple has hosted virtually this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The iPhone 12 is expected to be a significant upgrade that brings 5G support, a new design with flat edges much like the iPad Pro, new size options, and faster performance.
According to Business Insider, Apple is expected to release four different iPhone 12 models this year: two versions to succeed the iPhone 11, and two that will effectively replace the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. All models will reportedly support 5G, but the more expensive “Pro Max” is also expected to come with a Lidar sensor for better performance in augmented reality apps.
