iPhone 12 details leaked before Apple’s upcoming October 13 event

A Chinese Weibo account, ‘Kang’ has recently posted allegedly details of the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup. The leak also mentioned most of the products set to be announced at Apple’s October 13th event. The iPhone 12 lineup is expected to be announced at Apple’s upcoming online event. The ‘Hi, Speed’ event will be streamed live on apple.com and the company’s YouTube channel at 10:00 a.m. PDT from Apple Park.

For the first, Apple confirmed that the launch of the new flagship smartphone will be delayed by a few weeks, meaning that the company will not follow the usual September launch schedule. Tech analysts claimed that the delay is due to production disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
