  • Apple’s annual iPhone event will likely be held in late September or early October.
  • In addition to the new iPhone 12 model with 5G support, rumor has it that Apple will eventually introduce the Airtag, an accessory designed to compete with tile trackers.
  • Beyond the unveiling of new iPhones and AirTags, we can also expect Apple to release the next-gen Apple Watch later.

With the coronovirus epidemic still dominating the headlines, it’s not surprising that Apple’s annual iPhone media event hasn’t been discussed as much in previous years. Although Apple has not yet sent official invitations, rumor has it that the company will unveil the iPhone 12 – along with some other products – either in late September or early October. Apple’s iPhone events typically begin in mid-September, but the timeline may have gone backward due to coronovirus-related delays.

While Apple’s upcoming event will naturally dominate the company’s brand new iPhone lineup, this is not to say that we won’t leave Apple with some surprises on us.

In addition to the iPhone 12 and AirTags, the report also suggests that Apple will introduce a next-gen Apple Watch this year. And given that the most recent Apple Watch release was clearly an incremental upgrade, we can only hope that we see more upgrades this year.

All told, there is no denying that the main event at Apple’s upcoming media event will be the company’s new iPhones. Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup is designed to be particularly ambitious as we’ve previously covered, with the company releasing four different iPhone models, all with support for OLED displays and 5G connectivity.
