Probably one of the biggest events in the smartphone community is hands-down the launch of the new iPhones. We are due for the launch event of the iPhone 12 series of phones. In fact, keeping in mind the COVID-19 or Coronavirus pandemic in mind, several tech giants, including Apple, have canceled their upcoming launch events, and it seems like the future events where iPhone 12 will be launched might get a push or delay.
Apple phones are also not very extensively leaked like their Android counterparts Samsung or Google. However, in this post, we will give you all the latest details about the iPhone 12, release date, rumors surrounding the phones, and the latest news about Apple. So, that being said, let us get straight into the article itself:

Usually, the Californian giant, Apple, releases its batch of iPhones in the second week of September, and this time around in 2020 as well, it is expected to be happening in September 2020. But, the COVID-19 outbreak might delay this event, or Apple might cancel this even and hold it digitally. Moreover, the current situation, like travel restrictions, lockdown, has kept everything under wraps. We can only hope that this coronavirus pandemic gets contained, and everything is back to normal.
iPhone 12 Names
Last year, the iPhone went ahead with a new mnemonic for the iPhones and called them iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Though these are not the aptest or good names for a phone, it is considered good as compared to the names of Asus smartphones like the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 (sigh!).
So, this year also, Apple might go ahead with the same mnemonics for the iPhone 2020 series.
- iPhone 12
- iPhone 12 Max
- iPhone 12 Pro
- iPhone 12 Pro Max
Also, it is pretty hard to tell what the 5G variants of the phone will be called, as of yet. There could use an additional model with a 5G name attached to it. We will keep you posted about it.
iPhone Design and Specs
Talking about the design, though Apple has stuck with the same design for ages, iPhone 11 brought in a new sense of refreshment with the square camera bump at the back of the phone. With the iPhone 12, we can expect Apple to have squarer edges, and the rumor mill is also hot that the iPhone 12 will bring in a new design, which is pretty exciting. Talking about the notch, we would like to see a reduced or removal of the notch and in place of the 3d FaceID, slap the TouchID fitted inside the display. Moreover, there are certain rumors that Apple might be bringing different sizes of the iPhone 12, hinting that Apple will now try to target different price segments.
Talking about the fun part, the display, we would like to see a 120Hz, OLED panel across all the iPhone 12 models. Currently, iPhone 11 has an LCD display while the Pro models rock the OLED panels. So, this time around, we might see a change of heart from Apple and the introduction of the higher refresh rate, OLED panels across all the iPhone 2020 models. Besides that, we might get a 5.42-inch, a 6.06-inch, and a 6.67-inch model in place of the 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and a 6.5-inch iPhone.
We might see Apple introduce a 3D depth-sensing camera and some tweaks to the Night mode. Though the camera on the iPhones is still considered to be one of the best, there is always room for that extra improvement that can make the cameras better. The iPhone 12 Pro Max might also be housing a quad-camera set up the fourth one being the ToF camera. The use of the 3D-sensing laser array has also popped up in the rumor mill. There are also certain rumors suggesting that Apple might bump the camera MP and house a 64 MP lens as the primary camera.
Hardware and Software
All the iPhone 12 models are expected to be supporting 5G, and rocking the A14 Bionic chipset. The iPhone 12 will also come with the iOS 14 out of the box. Moreover, this spec is expected to be the same across all the iPhone 12 models.
iPhones are some of the most awaited pieces of tech around the year. We would suggest our readers take all the information with a pinch of salt as most of the details about the iPhone 12 are based on rumors, and we cannot confirm anything until something concrete or official comes up from Apple. We will keep you posted about further developments in this regard.
