We are reviewing the latest rumors about the new iPhone 12 (but now officially delayed in the fall of 2020, as well as the features, design changes and tech specs you can expect when the handset is finally released
With just a few weeks to go we have a good idea of what to expect. The design has been unveiled, and a full list of specs has been revealed – including a processor that can provide up to 15% speed gain due to its use of a 5nm production process. We have prices for every model, too, which looks set to rise again this year.
The big news is that the iPhone 12 was not mentioned at the special Apple Time Flies event on September 15, which shows that it was brought back to a different creation in October.
When will the new iPhone come out?
After the non-Apple show on September 15, we expect the iPhone 12 to be released by mid-October 2020.
Following Apple’s financial report in July, CFO Luca Maestri confirmed that the iPhone 12 will be released a few weeks later than usual. Things have to get worse for a private company to reach the point of public comment on its product launch plans.
Sources at the time were speculating that the release could be rolling back to 2021, which now looks unrealistic; We understand, after all, that the performance of the iPhone 12 is ongoing. Meanwhile, an anonymous ‘Apple employee’, told Reddit that the iPhone 12 will be launched on September 15, as well as the first Apple Silicon MacBook! As many experts would expect, that is just not right.
October, however, seems to be the most likely month. Jon Prosser has kept for a while, after all (among many speculations, some of which are inaccurate), that the iPhone 12 will be unveiled in the week starting October 12th.
In terms of sales dates, Prosser is subscribing to the current popular theory that Apple will address production issues by doubling the launch of the iPhone 12. followed by 5.4in iPhone 12 and 6.7in 12 Pro Max a few weeks later. Because the first two will be based on the same OLED screens, it will reduce some of the pressure on Apple’s partners.
Specifically, Prosser says we can expect pre-orders for the iPhone 12 and 12 Max to begin in the week beginning October 12 (similar to the announcement) and shipping to begin next week. He says the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will be available to pre-order, and then start shipping, in November.

We’re starting to get a good idea of what the iPhone 12 will look like, as it started out as a lot of conflicting ideas meeting one point of agreement. (One thing has been agreed, for example, that the funny iPhone model will not be a commercial product this year – that is 2021 or more
