Recall that the next presentation of Apple will take place on September 15, but the iPhone announcement on it is unlikely – most likely, it will be presented at a separate event in October.
Apple has already started the mass production of the iPhone 12
There are a few days left before the Apple presentation, and the company is preparing for it. According to the new information, Apple is already ready for mass production of the iPhone 12 series, and the company also plans to launch the iPhone 12 on sale in late September or early October.
Apple hopes to have up to 80 million 5G iPhones from all its factories by the end of the year, according to the new data. The rest should be produced in early 2021. According to rumors, of the projected 80 million, 40% will be the iPhone 12 Max.
According to the head of the supply chain, Apple has managed to reduce delays from several months to several weeks. The final assembly of some iPhone 12 models will take place in early October.

Supply sources also report that Apple has already begun mass production of AirTags, long-announced Bluetooth trackers that should help you avoid losing any important items.
In addition, Apple has increased production of future iPads, with up to 27 million units reportedly slated to ship between September and December. It’s also interesting that according to some rumors, Apple is not planning a new version of the iPhone SE in 2021.
Apple will supply the iPhone 12 series with only 12MP cameras
Rumors surfaced last week that the iPhone 12 Pro will have a 64MP sensor and 5x optical zoom, but now a reputable insider has upset fans.
According to the source, Apple has no plans to increase the resolution of its smartphones’ cameras this year. Moreover, even next year, the iPhone 13 may get a 48MP camera instead of 64MP.
As for the iPhone 12 lineup, all models should get 12MP camera sensors. At the same time, the sensors will be larger. They will allow smartphones to take good pictures in low light conditions.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will receive two 12MP sensors in the main camera, as well as 12MP front cameras. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models WILL additionally receive a third 12-megapixel sensor in the main camera.
All four models are said to receive a new 7-lens wide-angle lens that should reduce image distortion. In addition, they will also get new image stabilization technology.
