iPhone 12: Leaked promotional material hints at an October release date
Apple's alleged September 8 'grand reveal' turned out to be a damp squib, much to the disappointment of fans, enthusiasts, and at least one leaker. Thankfully, Apple confirmed that it would be announcing something on September 15. The likelihood of it being iPhones is low, but further information has emerged that gives us a rough idea about when Apple might unveil its 2020 flagship smartphones.
Prolific leaker Evan Blass Tweeted what appears to be a promotional email that sets October 20 as the last date to pre-order the iPhone 12, Apple Watch Series 6, and AirPods. It seems to be a template of sorts, with placeholders for information to be filled once the products are launched. Lastly, it also confirms that the iPhone 12 will be 5G-ready.
While Evan Blass has been fairly spot-on with most of his leaks, it is good practice to take this one with a grain of salt. If the email in question is legitimate, we can expect Apple to launch the iPhone 12 sometime in the first week of October. Rumor has it that Apple will launch the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro first. Another rumor states that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will be unveiled first, so everything is speculation-based at this point.
