Let’s dive into the iPhone 12 release details.


Anticipated iPhone 12 Launch Date

The launch date for the new iPhone is the day the public will finally hear from Apple about which products it will release in the next coming weeks. Historically, iPhone events have been in the second week of September and typically fall on a Tuesday.

That said, the iPhone 12 launch event is expected to occur on September 8th.

As noted by Apple Leaker and Tech Analyst Jon Prosser, the upcoming Apple products are expected to launch in September to be shipped in late October.

With several prolific Apple leakers having backed this date, it seems likely that the iPhone 12 event will be on the second Tuesday of September to follow Apple’s tradition. While the iPhone 12 launch date has yet to be confirmed, all arrows point towards the second week of September again this year.


The launch date for an iPhone is not equivalent to its release date.

Following iPhone 12 Release Date

Usually, the release date for a new iPhone comes just a week or two after the launch date. For example, the iPhone 11 was released ten days after its launch.

But this year, Apple has cited shipping difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which will delay the iPhone 12 release date.

The iPhone 12 release date will likely be in October.

As noted in Prosser’s tweet, the iPhone 12 will most likely be shipped out in late October with the iPhone 12 Pro following in early November.

No official sources have confirmed the release date for the iPhone 12. However, in most iPhone 12 rumors, several leakers suspect that it will be around mid to late-October. More pessimistic authorities believe the iPhone 12 launch could be delayed even further to November or later.

One theory suggests that the iPhone 12 will have two release dates. The two 6.1-inch models may have an earlier shipping date than the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models.

Considering the possible change in production demands, Apple could have two release dates for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models.
