We’re expecting to see a 5G iPhone 12 lineup and a new HomePod at Apple’s Oct. 13 virtual event.
That’s right, the company’s next-generation phone, likely called the iPhone 12, is expected to launch during an online-only event today. We’re expecting to see a new boxier iPad Pro-inspired look, faster processing chips and 5G wireless technology.
Here’s what we’ve heard so far about the iPhone 12’s price and release date, and a few features on our iPhone 12 wish list that Apple should steal from Samsung.
The new iPhone is the smartphone Apple fans and industry watchers alike have been waiting a while to see. It’s the first major revamp of the iPhone’s design since 2017, when Apple introduced its $1,000 iPhone X, with its new face unlocking design and better screen technology.
One survey from Decluttr, a device recycler, and reseller, found that a “staggering” 53% of respondents plan to buy this year’s iPhone, touching off what analysts call a “supercycle” of phone upgrades.
