Last month, Apple confirmed that this year’s iPhone 12 models will launch outside of the usual September timeframe and will “be available a few weeks later”, which has led to speculation about when an event will be. can be organized.
Leaker Jon Prosser, who sometimes shares exact knowledge of Apple’s plans, today said that Apple will hold the iPhone 12 event for the 12 of October, with orders taking place over the weekend. and shipments will commence the following week.
If these dates are accurate, Apple could hold an event on Tuesday, October 13, accept pre-orders for the new cheaper iPhone 12 models on October 16, and ship the devices. new starting October 23.
w / c = starting week (for context) With the staggering release of the iPhone 12 and uncertainty about the end date for Pro models, it’s likely that dates could be slipped / changed, I will let you know if anything changes! But for now, this is information in the 😏 – Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) system August 12, 2020
There have been numerous rumors suggesting the possibility that a staggered release will see some models launch ahead of others, which Prosser says is the same. While the iPhone 12 models will ship in October, Prosser claims the iPhone 12 Pro models will not be available until an unspecified date in November.
Prosser also claims that Apple will release the Apple Watch Series 6 and an unidentified new iPad through its press release on September 7. It would be unusual if Apple announced Apple Watch ahead of the new iPhone because of the Last year, iPhone events have also included Apple Watch.
Prosser says this information is “in the system”, but the staggering release date and “uncertain final date for Pro models” mean the date could be “slipped / changed”. Last month, Prosser announced that the new iPhone 12 and iPad models would be coming out in October.
While Prosser in the past correctly predicted some Apple launch plans, he also shared inaccurate information. In June, he incorrectly stated that Apple was planning to rename iOS to “iPhoneOS” and he shared an image of what he claims is Apple’s AirPower charging mat, with those images. then it turned out to be a clone device not AirPower at all.
Some of Prosser’s claims are a bit odd as well, such as his suggestion that Apple is working on a legacy Apple Glasses set of Steve Jobs that is modeled on the glasses Jobs wore.
