iPhone 12 and new iPads launching in October, says Jon Prosser
Prominent leaker Jon Prosser has suggested Apple will release the iPhone 12 and new iPad models in October, seemingly pointing to this year’s iPhone upgrades coming a month later than usual.
In a cryptic tweet today, Prosser said “iPhone 12. New iPads. October.” without any further details, pointing to Apple delaying the usual September release of its next-generation iPhone hardware, likely due to the impact COVID-19 has had on its global supply chain.
The tweet follows after Prosser suggested Apple would release a new iMac in August earlier this week, dismissing rumors that originated on Twitter which claimed we could see an updated model be released before the end of July.

Prosser joins a long list of experts who claim Apple intends to delay the usual September launch of its new iPhone hardware. One possibility is that like the iPhone X, Apple will unveil the new device during a keynote in the month of September, but delay the physical release until a month later to allow the supply chain to continue to manufacture to meet launch demand.
All four of this year’s new models are expected to offer 5G cellular connectivity, with this set to be one of the biggest selling points for the new models, alongside an all-new design similar to the squared design of the iPad Pro.
The Apple Post has gone hands on with a model created based on leaked schematics and specifications for this year’s 6.7-inch “iPhone 12 Pro Max”, offering an early preview of the rumored new squared-edged design, larger display, and more.
