Apple Did Not Introduce New iPhones In September For The First Time Since 2012
Apple presents its new products on Tuesday: for the first time since 2012, the fall presentation did without a new iPhone line, the company showed the new Apple Watch and iPad, Apple CEO Tim Cook said.
"Today we are focusing on two products-the Apple Watch and the iPad," Chief Executive Tim Cook said in a video message opening the presentation. The company is broadcasting live on its website.
The September conference has traditionally been a platform for presenting the new generation of iPhone, as it has been since 2012 when the iPhone 5 model was introduced. Meanwhile, at the end of July this year, it became known that this year the presentation of the new product will take place "a few weeks" later than usual. The delay is believed to be caused by difficulties with deliveries amid the coronavirus pandemic and, as industry experts expect, may mean that the introduction of the iPhone 12 will occur closer to the start date of sales of the new product, which is expected to happen in October.
As reported by specialized publications on the eve of the presentation, this year will feature four smartphone models: the iPhone 12 with a diagonal of 5.4 inches and 6.1 inches, as well as two more expensive models of the iPhone 12 Pro with a screen of 6.1 and 6.7 inches. According to the Verge, if this information is confirmed, the iPhone 12 with a 5.4 screen will be the smallest since 2016, and the model with a 6.7 screen will be the largest in the history of the iPhone.
