We recently let you in on everything we know about the highly anticipated iPhone 12 series. We also found out that the iPhone 12 could be cheaper than the iPhone 11! This time around, we got wind of when the iPhone 12 series will actually come out—and if everything goes according to plan, it'll be in a few months!
According to a Forbes article, Apple is going to have to delay the launch of the iPhone 12 series because production will be starting a few weeks late, which will result to a later release date. Apple usually holds their launches in September, but it looks like this year, we'll have to wait for an extra month because rumor has it that the iPhone 12 series is slated to come out in October.
Smartphone leaker Ross Young tweeted: "We also hear that iPhone 12 panel production will start around six weeks late, so rather than early June, it won’t start till the end of July which should imply a delay in the iPhone 12 launch from September to October."
Separately, popular and reliable leaker Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech also shared the same info in a YouTube video where he says "Regardless of what you’ve heard elsewhere, we will not be getting it in September, iPhone 12 is delayed. We’re going to be getting it in October… [but] instead of having announcements in September and then it comes out in October, it looks like they’ll shoot for all of it happening in October."
However, Forbes updated their article to say that Prosser reached out to them adding that Apple is hard at work to release all the phones in the iPhone 12 series simultaneously in October, but nothing is guaranteed. This could mean that the smartphone models might be released one after the other as opposed to releasing the series all at once. Either way, we're just excited to see the official models when they're here! For now, check out some of the things we know about the iPhone 12 series, based on the video by YouTube channel EverythingApplePro that includes leaks from tipster Max Weinbach:
The iPhone 12 Pro Max might have flat edges
The last time we saw Apple come out with an iPhone with flat edges was in 2012 when they came out with the iPhone 5. According to the video, the iPhone 12 Pro Max's frame will be pretty similar with the new iPad Pro, featuring flat steel edges and an overall sleeker design.
It might feature Apple's largest iPhone screen
The iPhone 12 Pro Max will feature a 6.7-inch screen display, which is the largest in any iPhone. For comparison, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a screen size of 6.5 inches.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max might have a smaller notch
For those who hate how wide the notch goes for iPhones, it looks like Apple heard you. According to the CAD render that leaked, the iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a much smaller notch so you'll get more screen display. However, because the render is only 70% complete, the new notch might not be the final design.
The rear cameras will be similar to the new iPad Pro's camera layout
If you compare the iPhone 11's rear camera layout with the iPad Pro's, you'll notice that the latter's design fits its lenses in a perfect square while the former's is slightly rectangular. Plus, the iPhone 11's lenses jut out from the glass but it looks like the new iPhone 12 Pro Max's lenses will sit closer to the glass, so it's much flatter.
Apple might be coming out with a Navy Blue iPhone 12 Pro Max
According to Weinbach, Apple will be coming out with a Navy Blue model for the iPhone 12 Pro Max and it is most likely replacing the Midnight Green color.
The non-Pro models might come in new colors
It looks like Apple is also considering releasing the iPhone 12 (non-Pro model) in new colors such as light blue, a shade of violet, and a light orange, but they will only be choosing two of the three colors. It is also not clear if the new colors will replace existing iPhone colors.
