Where’s the iPhone 12, Apple? All the new Apple products we’re still waiting for

Apple has announced its newest iPhone during a September media event every year since 2012’s iPhone 5. During the 2020 Apple event last month, we got new Apple Watch and iPad models, and a bundled subscription service, but no new iPhone. That shouldn’t come as a complete surprise, as a delay has been rumored for months now, and the conventional wisdom says the iPhone 12 will be announced at an October event

Get ready for the iPhone 12 now, instead of waiting until the last minute. 


The iPhone isn’t the only missing-in-action update or new launch we’ve been waiting for. These are some of the things we didn’t see in September, but that might (or might not) show up before the end of the year.

Amazon Prime Day: The Tech Products Most of Us Are Waiting to Buy

Now that we officially know when Amazon Prime Day(s) are happening this year—Tuesday, October 13 and Wednesday, October 14—we decided to ask people exactly how they’re going to handle the online retail giant’s massive sale. One thousand US respondents ages 18 to 54 filled out a Google Survey between September 16 and 23, 2020. Here’s what we found. 

A full 14 percent of 9,768  potential respondents that said they’d be Prime Day buyers. If that percentage seems small to you, it’s a major increase from when we surveyed people in May 2019, ahead of last year’s Prime Day. Back then, only 8 percent of respondents said they would definitely make a purchase. Holding Prime Day closer to the holidays is likely having a major impact, enough to almost double the purchase planners. 

Still, that’s 86 percent of all potential respondents claiming they would not deign to make a purchase if

Xbox Series X Hands-On Preview – Less Waiting, More Gaming

Next-gen gaming is already here. We’ve had a fully functional Xbox Series X on hand for a few days at this point, and although what we’re running is technically a non-final build of the system, this is a real piece of next-gen hardware. The Velocity architecture, solid-state drives, AMD’s Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 GPU outputting 12 TFLOPs–these are all things we’ve been constantly hearing about as we head into the Series X’s November 10 launch. But now we have first-hand experience.

There are certain aspects of the Xbox Series X that we’re not able to talk about quite yet, but of the things we can cover, we have general performance with backwards compatible Xbox One games, the hardware design itself, load times, and Quick Resume. And right now, I’m convinced that the latter two are the features that make next-gen gaming feel more advanced–it’s those practical improvements that
