iPhone 12 5G Model May Ship In October 2020

Since Apple's announcement for its virtual event on September 15 at 10:00 AM PDT, everyone continues to wonder if the iPhone 12 models will be previewed on that day.

Apple traditionally launches its new iPhones in the latter half of September as part of its Fall collection.

This year, we can expect to hear more about the Apple Watch Series 6 from the virtual event, alongside AirTags, the new iPad, and possibly the iPhone 12 series.


While we hope that Apple will focus on the iPhone 12, some are speculating that we won't hear too much about the new iPhone till later.

Some Apple leakers predict a focus on the Apple Watch Series 6 because of Apple's title for the virtual event, "Time Flies."

One of the reliable Apple leakers, Jon Prosser, also tweeted his predictions that the upcoming Apple Watch and iPad will be shared first before the iPhone.

According to Japanese publication company Nikkei, the new iPhone 12 with the 5G feature will ship in early October. As confirmed in Apple's Q3 2020 earnings report, we may be able to see more of the new iPhone 12 series during the online event.

The reason everyone is excited about the iPhone 12 models is not only because it is rumored that the iPhone 12s will come in four versions, but that it will be the first iPhone series to support 5G connectivity.

While other mobile companies like Samsung and Verizon have 5G mobile devices, the industry needs one final push to have both the device and technology to sweep the world with the improved cellular connection.

We should also look forward to hearing about Apple's updates on the iOS 14 and watchOS 7 versions. While Apple continues to fix the bugs in each operating system, we are all excited to see and experience the official version soon.
