As things are up in the air more this year than any other in recent memory, it remains to be seen when Apple will be announcing its new iPhone 12 and subsequently releasing the lineup. However, a new leak from insider Jon Prosser has revealed a possible release schedule for the latest iteration of the iPhone.
According to Prosser, who has a reputable track record when it comes to Apple news, the iPhone 12 event will take place on October 12, following the debut of a new Apple Watch and iPad in September. The iPhone 12 is then to become available for pre-order beginning the same day of October 12, with shipping commencing October 19. The iPhone 12 Pro models, however, are not expected to release until sometime in November, as a specific date has yet to be made known.
For those skeptical of Prosser’s reporting, he points out that he’s never been wrong about a product announcement date. “Reminder: though my overall track record is around 80%, I’ve never actually gotten a product announcement date wrong,” he tweeted.
As always, though, you’ll want to check back with us for confirmed info from Apple.
