Apple October 13 event: What to expect?
Apple had previously hinted at the delayed launch of the iPhone 12 series by a couple of weeks due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has impacted its supply chain this year. According to several rumours and leaks, Apple is preparing to introduce four new iPhones in the iPhone 12 lineup– iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max and a smaller iPhone 12 Mini.
The iPhone 12 Mini is expected to sport a 5.4-inch display alongside the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. The new iPhones are powered by the Apple A14 SoC, becoming the first phones to be powered by a commercial 5nm chip. Interestingly, the A14 processor debuted on the new iPad Air last month. The new iPhones are also rumoured to come with supports for 5G networks.
Previous leaks have also hinted that the new iPhones for 2020 will be priced aggressively, with the iPhone 12 mini starting at $649. The iPhone 12 is expected to be priced starting at $749 while the other two models, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max are rumoured to come with triple camera setup along with a LiDAR sensor like the one on the recently launched iPad Pro. The iPhone 12 Pro could start from $999 while the larger 12 Pro Max is said to be priced at $1099.
Apart from the new iPhone 12 range, the company is also expected to debut its first over-the-ears AirPods Studio headphones along with a smaller HomePod and a Bluetooth tracker that could end up being called AirTags.
