Tomorrow, all of you, Apple will be retiring the long-awaited iPhone 12 and all its variants. Normally Apple would host this type of event in September, but in the year of the virus, nothing is normal and everything is weird. We will therefore receive iPhone announcements in October.
This event, which Apple teased with the words “Hi, speed,” comes about a month after the company’s iPad event where it announced a new base model for the iPad, iPad Air and OS updates for. iPadOS and iOS. So what do we expect to see this circulate? For starters, four new iPhones.
Apple last year unveiled three variants of the iPhone 11: the 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max. We expect updates from everyone for the iPhone 12, with “regular” versions 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. But there will likely also be another newcomer to the iPhone 12 Mini – a 5.4-inch phone with a lower starting price than the others. It looks like the Mini sits directly between the iPhone SE and the iPhone 12 in the Apple lineup. Clever. Considering the nickname “Hi, Speed” for this event, we can also assume that all versions of the 12 will have 5G connectivity.
According to other recent rumors, Apple may present a new version of its MagSafe technology, this time designed for use with a phone case and wireless charger. The magnets in the MagSafe case could potentially help users quickly and easily align the phone with compatible wireless chargers. I’m not sure magazine alignment is really a problem in the first place, but okay.
Finally, we should see a smaller HomePod, precisely called the HomePod Mini. The same S5 processor is rumored to be found in the Apple Watch Series5 and SE models.
Apple’s long-rumored Studio AirPods and Tile-type AirTags were originally rumored for last month’s event, but it came and went without a word on either. ‘other. Word on the street was we gonna see them go around, but now that may not happen either. I guess we’ll all have to look to find out the details.
You will be able to watch the event live on the Apple website or on YouTube, embedded below.
