A Twitter user with the nickname apple_idesigner has published renders of the promising iPhone 12 Pro – a smartphone that, alas, will not be presented next week. These images are in line with all the latest rumors and leaks, so they are as close as possible to what we should see in October.
The iPhone 12 Pro (and indeed the entire iPhone 12 line) can be compared to the first generation iPhone 4 or iPhone SE – they are similar in shape to the case. But the new model lacks the Home button, and the camera is multi-sensors, with a small cutout for the lidar in addition to the holes for the camera and flash modules.
There will be no iPhone 12 on Apple’s September presentation
Apple confirmed the presentation of new products on September 15. But it did not disclose the list of these products – the company never does. A little later, a list of September new products appeared on the Web. But, according to the famous insider Jon Prosser, not all devices on this list will be presented next week, including the iPhone 12.
In fact, there will be only four new products at the event. Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple’s budget smartwatches, referred to as Watch SE, iPad Air 4 and an inexpensive iPad 8. And that is all. No full-size AirPods Studio wireless headphones and, alas, no iPhone 12.
For the “Time Flies” event on the 15th, what I’ve been told is coming for sure is:
Apple Watch SE
Apple Watch Series 6
(or Apple Watch & Watch Pro)
iPad Air 4
I’m sure there might be more, but that’s the main focus of the event.
No iPhone or AirPods Studio

According to rumors, the premiere of the iPhone 12 will take place later – in October, and not at the very beginning of the month. Orders for devices will begin to take on October 15-16, and sales will start in a week.
It should be noted that John Prosser is a reliable insider. For example, he was the first to publish screenshots of the iPhone 12 Pro interface, which confirmed the main characteristics of the model. By the way, on Monday, the insider promises to publish a photo of AirTags and AirPods Studio headphones.
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.
