What is the iPhone 12?

Apple is expected to launch at least three new iPhone models in September – and maybe even four.

Given that last year’s trio was named ‘iPhone 11’, it seems safe to assume we’ll get the iPhone 12 this year.

It’s likely we’ll see something along the lines of an iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

All eyes are on Apple for a spectacular line-up too.

The 2019 roster of iPhone models wasn’t hugely different from the previous year.

But now industry insiders are expecting Apple to launch its first 5G iPhone model.

Rival phone makers have also charged ahead with all-screen front designs – and Apple could follow suit.

Sadly, Apple is keeping the final design and specs of its next smartphone top secret.

But reliable leaks will start emerging in the weeks running up to the launch, and that might be in the very near future.

iPhone 12 release date – when is the next iPhone out?

Apple is set to host a special event on September 15, which could see the launch of a new iPhone.

If the new iPhone 12 is announced at that event, it would likely go on sale on Friday, September 25.

However, this year it’s expected that the iPhone 12 will be delayed.

We’re likely to see a new iPad and Apple Watch at the September 15 event, but an iPhone debut is looking increasingly improbable.

Instead, most recent leaks suggest that Apple will launch the next iPhone in early October.

We don’t have a price yet, but we’d expect similar mark-ups to last year’s iPhone 11 range.

In other news, this impressive iPhone 12 concept video could show off Apple’s secret design ahead of time.

Apple recently released a new “cheap” version of its iPhone SE.

The iPhone 12 could be the thinnest ever thanks to new screen technology.

And the new phone could also see through mist and fog thanks to rumoured ‘Spectral Edge’ camera integration.
