Apple may have accidentally just revealed the date for its iPhone 12 event
Apple may have just accidentally revealed the date for its upcoming iPhone 12 launch event, with users noticing Apple’s official YouTube channel promoting a live stream on September 10 2020.
9to5Mac reports readers saw the upcoming live stream promoted earlier today, suggesting this could have been a test feed mistakenly published ahead of the official confirmation of the event itself.
Moments after the live stream was shown, the date was then pulled from YouTube.
Shown below in the European date format, for a brief amount of time today Apple’s verified YouTube channel was showing September 10 2020 as the next time a live stream would take place.

The date would mean the event would be held on a Thursday, a day Apple typically doesn’t host events, so we suggest taking this apparent leak with a pinch of salt.
It has previously been suggested that Apple may announce the iPhone 12 on the week beginning October 12, with the iPhone 12 Pro not shipping until November.
This year’s new iPhone lineup is expected to prompt a “supercycle” of upgrades. To recap, Apple is expected to release four new iPhone model this fall: a 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 to replace the current iPhone 11, and a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max.
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.
