What we Know about the New iPhone 12 (2020) release date, price and specs

The iPhone 12 is almost here, as Apple is holding an event on October 13 – that’s tomorrow – where it will almost certainly be unveiled – and joined by the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, if rumors are to be believed.

The iPhone 12 Mini is the odd one out there as Apple has never launched a phone with mini in the name, but there’s plenty of evidence to suggest it might do so this year. Alternatively, we’d previously heard of an iPhone 12 Max which could land instead, but either way there will probably be four phones in the range.

So what do we expect from the new iPhone for 2020 when it does arrive? Beyond there being a new model in the range these are also very likely to be the first iPhones with 5G, while a LiDAR scanner, new screen sizes, and more power in the form of the A14 Bionic chipset that debuted in the iPad Air 4, are all rumored too.

Apple’s upcoming launch follows hot on the heels of a September 15 event that focused on the Apple Watch 6, Apple Watch SE, iPad Air 4, a new iPad, the Apple One subscription services, and the launch of a new service called Apple Fitness+. That likely means the October 13 iPhone 12 launch will be dedicated purely to the phone, but the Apple event may feature other launches too.

Below you’ll find everything we’ve heard so far about the iPhone 12 range, including possible prices, specs and features.

What is the release date for iPhone 12
Tuesday, October 13 is the reveal date for the iPhone 12. Apple has yet to confirm that we’ll hear about the new phones tomorrow, but the company is hosting an event on that date and it matches all the rumors of when we’ll be hearing about the handsets.

According to Jon Prosser (a leaker with a mixed track record) the standard phones would apparently ship on the week commencing October 19 (likely meaning Friday, October 23).

However, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max apparently won’t be up for pre-order or ship until sometime in November. So an exact new iPhone release date is still a little unclear at this time.

How much will the iPhone 12 cost?
The price of the iPhone 12 series is a little unclear at the moment with one leak from Jon Prosser claiming certain prices, and another leak claiming there will be 4G variant for other prices.

Our preferred price leak at the moment has presented the prices for 5G versions of the phone. The information comes from Apple Rumors on Twitter and it presents a lot of similar information to what we’ve heard before.

What will the iPhone 12 look like?
The iPhone 12 design looks set to be a big change from the latest few generations of Apple’s handset. Remember the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5? Reports suggest that the iPhone 12 range will be in part inspired by those phones, and there’s supposedly even some elements of the iPad Pro 2020 mixed in.

Specifically, consistent leaks have suggested that the iPhone 12 will have a flatter metal frame than the iPhone 11 range, with Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who’s a very trusted source, being among those to say this.

And the phones might not just be slim – a separate leak has suggested the standard (supposedly 5.4-inch) iPhone 12 looks smaller than the iPhone 7, but isn’t as small as the original iPhone SE. You can see a video comparing those three phones here, while the tweet below provides another look at the possible 5.4-inch iPhone 12.

What iPhone 12 specs should you expect?
We’re expecting the iPhone 12 range to use a 5nm A14 Bionic chipset, which is almost certain to be included in the new iPhones thanks to it being debuted with the new iPad Air 2020.

The new processor inside will be capable of greater power efficiency, with six cores inside and a 16-core Neural Engine that’s twice as fast as before.

Check out the chart below for a distilled look at what we’re expecting. Note that it includes 5G information, more details of which can be found in the next section.
