iPhone 12 Launch Live Updates: Apple Set to Launch its First 5G iPhones
By ZBT Team on October 13, 2020
Apple is set to launch the iPhone 12 lineup in India and across the world, after months of speculations summing up every rumour from Apple’s supply chain. This year, Apple is set to unveil four new iPhones in its iPhone 12 lineup, with a rumoured 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Mini, a standard, 6.1-inch iPhone 12, a fully-specced 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. The new iPhones will be the first devices in Apple’s lineup to offer 5G connectivity, and alongside that, are also expected to come with a new design. Also confirmed in the new iPhones is the A14 Bionic processor, which offers key performance updates over its predecessor.
Apple is also expected to add a new LiDAR sensor to its Pro iPhones this year, making their rear cameras into quad camera modules. The new sensor is expected to add augmented reality features to the new iPhones, in tandem with Apple’s computational photography wizardry that premiered with the iPhone 11 lineup in 2019. The new iPhones will run on iOS 14, which has already premiered worldwide. The latest Apple event is the third of its kind, where the event will be streamed as a pre-recorded, virtual press conference – instead of the annual extravaganza that has now been suspended as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Passive radiators have typically always produced reliably clean and strong bass. The biggest example of that is Ultimate Ears’ reputed Boom range of speakers. This should be good on the Apple HomePod Mini as well.

Okay, Apple is making its budget HomePod into a full smart home hub. This can be pretty interesting.

Siri is getting a steady upgrade in tandem with the HomePod Mini. It gets tighter app integration, which works wonders if you own an iPhone. If you don’t… well, you wouldn’t own a HomePod if you don’t own an iPhone.

The HomePod Mini will add Amazon Prime Music soon.

The Apple HomePod Mini has a full-range dynamic driver with limited harmonic distortion, a passive radiator for the bass, 360-degree audio, the Apple S5 chip, a touch backlit display on the top for controls, and a mesh control fabric that apparently helps the acoustics.

Gotta love Apple for never wasting time with the announcements. Here’s the HomePod Mini!

Apple CEO Tim Cook is here, wrapping up the products launched from the past event. And with that, we’re delving right into the announcements.

And we’re off with a rather good-looking montage of Apple’s private alien spaceship, the Apple Park. They’re damn good at making these movies.

We’re about a minute from the event to begin, and soothing pre-conference music has started playing. Along with a shifting-colour Apple logo, of course.

Meanwhile, a couple of deals. If you’d rather buy the iPhone 11 in India right now, Apple’s newly unveiled official store will give you free AirPods if you buy the iPhone 11 from them.

As always, if you’d much rather watch the stream for yourself than hear us talk about it, here’s the event’s official stream for you:

While all of the info I painstakingly typed above already serves as a recap for everything to expect in the new iPhones, here’s a more comprehensive roundup of all new features expected in the iPhone 12 lineup.

But before all of that, we have loads of background reading for y’all. We start with back cover renders of the iPhone 12 by Daily Objects, which seem to confirm that we are, indeed, expecting four new iPhones.

Just to be clear, we don’t expect the rumour mill to ever stop. (Pro tip: Expect iPhone 13 rumours to spam your timelines very soon)
