What iPhone 12 could look like, based on all the new design rumors

Analysts suggest Apple is on the cusp of launching its latest generation of superphone, with an event announced for Oct. 13 (you can livestream Apple’s event from home — here’s how to watch). The current hottest rumors suggest that we may see multiple versions of the iPhone 12, with features like 5G, lidar depth mapping and the latest A14 Bionic processor. (And here are some features on our iPhone 12 wish list that Apple should steal from Samsung.)  But what will the phone look like? Let’s dive into the rumor mill to work it out.

Catch up on all the iPhone 12 rumors before Apple’s event tomorrow

Tomorrow, Apple is set to announce new hardware at an all-virtual fall event. All signs point to the arrival of the first 5G-equipped iPhone, but we won’t know for sure until Tim Cook and his pals officially pull back the curtain on the new devices.

The iPhone 11 could be the last generation of iPhone to have rounded edges—for now.

Still, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of info already floating around on the web about the new iPhone. Here’s a roundup of what kind of tech we might see in the fancy new handsets, which may or may not come with the name “iPhone 12.”

5G

There’s no shortage of 5G-capable phones on the market at the moment—Samsung has been offering the speedier data tech for well over a year now, even in some of its cheaper mid-range phones. According to rumors, however,

Apple will livestream a virtual event on Oct. 13 starting at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. BST), and all eyes are on the possibility of a new slate of iPhones — rumored to be called the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max and 12 Mini. The company has historically released new phones in September, but amid the COVID-19 outbreak, suppliers in China were forced to shut down or dial back operations. The tech giant confirmed there would be a delay on its flagship phones over the summer. 

What do we know about the new phones? Will there be enough new features to warrant upgrading from the

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple’s upcoming virtual product launch will kick off on Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. BST) in Apple Park. We’re mainly expecting to see the iPhone 12, but there’s still hope for some other surprises including Apple’s long-rumored smart tracker tag competitor, thought to be called AirTags. 

If AirTags don’t appear at the Oct. 13 event, we could see them at Apple’s rumored November event, when the tech giant is expected to announce the first Mac laptop with Apple Silicon. Otherwise, it might not happen until March 2021, by tech analyst Jon Prosser’s estimations.

The AirTag tech was hinted at in the code for iOS 13 last summer, but rumors were circulating even before

Could Apple’s iPhone 12 announcement event include AirPods Studio? All the rumors

Apple’s September event is in the rear-view mirror, and while we saw two new Apple Watches and iPads, there was no iPhone 12 announced at the virtual event. One long-rumored device that could make its debut soon is the AirPods Studio, a pair of over-ear headphones that have been hinted at for quite some time. (Another is the AirTags, which also could make their debut in October alongside the expected launch of the iPhone 12.)

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

During a virtual Sept. 15 event, Apple launched two new wearables, the Apple Watch Series 6 and Watch SE as well as a number of iPads. Unfortunately, those hoping for a new iPhone didn’t get anything, as the company kept mum about the new iPhone 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max (Apple has not confirmed the names of the phones, but we’ll go with those for now).

That’s because while we usually see new flagship iPhones in September, the COVID-19 outbreak has forced suppliers in China to shut down or operate on limited capacity. This affected not only Apple’s inventory in September, but it may affect sales, too. Apple also closed its US retail stores, though now some have reopened
