“Where’s the iPhone 12?” That’s what people will ask us on Tuesday, September 8 when the new iPads and Apple Watch 6 arrive Not available a new iPhone.
That’s at least our analysis of the world’s collective response if Apple’s sometimes right leaker, Jon Prosser, has nailed the timeline. He tweeted the list of weeks where he believes Apple is expected to announce and release new hardware.
That’s not good news if you’re eager to get your hands on the rumored iPhone 12 Pro 5G. That version will be last on the list.
If true, the new Apple Watch 6 and iPad will launch first ̵1; on the week of September 7 – and come to a significantly lower level of fanfare than usual due to the Covid-19, potentially sneakily revealed through a press release, just like we saw Apple do with the 2020 iPhone SE in March.
Now, assuming Prosser’s release date is correct, we fully expect the date to be Tuesday, September 8, since September 7 is a Monday and a US holiday (Labor Day) . That’s also the timeframe Apple typically has with a major launch event. But no new iPhones are mentioned for this first release date.
We don’t expect the ‘new iPad’ to include high-end Pro models. We got the 2020 iPad Pro in March, so we’re expecting an iPad Pro 2021 with 5G. Instead, the mid-range iPad – iPad Air 4 and iPad mini 6 – could be what we see in September.
Usher in delay of iPhone 12
The iPhone 12 launch date is said to be 5 weeks later, which is October 12 (possibly Tuesday, October 13). This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, as Apple, during its earnings call last month, made the rare move of announcing a delay of the iPhone 12.
The iPhone 12 reveal is said to be coming at an ‘event’. Whether it’s a live launch event or another ‘live Apple’ video like we saw with WWDC 2020 is still to be seen. We are expecting four versions of the new iPhone to emerge.
Some pre-orders are coming the same week – we anticipate Friday, October 16th. Apple has history of pre-orders on the Friday immediately following the launch event. And the iPhone 12 is supposed to go on sale next week – that is, on Friday, September 23.
However, according to Prosser, the premium iPhone 12 Pro will not be available in October. Instead, this version will receive pre-orders and a release date in November, with the leak saying ” There is no “is” exact date in the system. “
November is very late for a new iPhone, especially the versions (we’re expecting two sizes) that early adopters will expect. Pro is rumored to have the fastest 5G speeds, biggest screen, and best camera.
But this isn’t the first time in recent history that Apple’s latest and greatest iPhone slipped in November. The iPhone X was released on Friday, November 3, 2017.
Prosser has fixed the 2020 iPhone SE release date and announced the 27-inch (2020) iMac ahead of time, but he has received many leaks about the inaccurate Apple WWDC and noted that Apple’s date is always possible. change.
Plus, another Apple leak – Mark Gurman from Bloomberg – responded to Prosser’s Twitter thread with a disliked thumb, suggesting he didn’t believe the information was accurate.
