The new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are rumored to be launched October 13th and expected to be released October 23rd. As most of us know, the iPhones are always released in the month of September, however, it’s pretty clear it didn’t happen. There are also rumors that the new iPhone won’t be released until 2021. Hopefully, they will be released in the month of October, as some people are really looking forward to it.

There are expected to be four new models: the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Mini (5.4 inches), the standard iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro (6.1 inches), and then the iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches). The iPhone 12 will be the smallest iPhone released since the 4.7 inch iPhone SE was released four years. Also, the iPhone 12 Pro will be the biggest iPhone released since the 6.5 inch iPhone 11 Pro Max. The frame on the new iPhone is heard to be like the flat metal-edge design like the iPhone 5, and the new iPads are heard to have the same design.

The colors are expected to be the same as the colors from the previous iPhone 11 series. The traditional color schemes such as Gold, Silver, and Space Gray will still be available. However, rumors are said to be replacing the Midnight Green with a new Navy Blue color. There were also rumors back in April saying Apple was looking at light blue, violet, and light orange colors for the new addition of the smaller iPhone 12 phones.

It was confirmed that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will have two rear cameras, and the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have three rear cameras plus a new LiDAR sensor. The new sensor is expected to judge the distance between the phone and the object you’re shooting, causing the picture to come out clearer. This will lead to better portrait shots while also enabling more accurate object tracking.┬áThe extra lens should result in better photo quality and reduced distortion.

Considering the new iPhone accessories, there have been rumors saying there will be no charging cable or EarPods. It is believed that Apple won’t send the new phones with EarPods so maybe buyers will upgrade to the wireless AirPods. Although it’s rumored that the new phones won’t contain a charger in the box, a phone leaker tweeted the iPhone 12 box will contain a braided charger.

Hopefully some of these changes will be correct. Although, some are totally different than before, and some don’t agree with it.
