Get ready for round two, folks. Just a few short weeks after the launch of the new Apple Watch and iPads, Apple is back with the iPhone 12. And it’s launching next week.
iPhone 12 launch time
It looks like the rumours were indeed true. The iPhone 12 will be unveiled on October 13 in the U.S. For us Australians, that means October 14.
The tagline for the event is ‘Hi Speed’. And while this probably can be attributed to a number of different specs, we’re pretty sure this is an unsubtle reference to the new iPhone 12 having 5G.
As is tradition, you’ll need to get up at ungodly hour if you want to watch all the action in real time. The live stream will kick off at 4am AEDT, which will be 3:30am ACDT, 6:30am AEST, 2:30am ACST and 1:30am AWST.
We don’t know the release date yet, particularly because things have been different this year due to COVID-19 delays. But we’re hoping the devices will go on pre-sale in the same week as the launch.

What we know so far
When it comes to the iPhone 12 itself, there have been a ton of leaks and rumours so far.
This includes three devices — a 5.4-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch Pro Model and whopping 6.7-inch Pro Max. The entry-level device is said to have 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage options. For the Pro and Pro Max we’ll reportedly be looking at 128GB, 256GB or 512GB.
All three models will undoubtedly have Apple’s latest A14 Bionic chipset.
And of course, as the tagline suggests, perhaps the biggest reveal will be 5G. It’s currently unclear if all three models will have next-gen connectivity functionality but that certainly would be cool, if the prices didn’t skyrocket.
