Apple’s long-awaited iPhone 12 event finally starts up today, and here’s how to watch along. 

With iOS 14 now up and running for users, it was only a matter of time before Apple would pull the trigger on their next series of smartphone. After confirming the time and place we can expect to see it all in action, there was a short window of waiting to be had. Now, though, that’s well and truly over.


Spiralling back to their last event, in September, the developers focused mainly on the next evolution of Apple Watches.

The iPhone 11 released back in September 2019, so there’s been quite the gap since we’ve seen new phone technology from Apple. So, let’s take a look at when it will start up and what to expect now that we know it’s finally being unveiled.

Screenshots of online invitations have been flooding the internet since they first started appearing, seen below from Tech Radar’s David Lumb.

The broadcast will be going live at the aforementioned time on, so all you need to do is visit their website to get a glimpse.


The events are also be streamed on YouTube, embedded below.

No doubt, however, thousands of people will be posting images of it onto your timelines during the event. You can also add the time to your calendar on your current device, using the invitation itself – if you received the alert.

What to expect from iPhone 12 event

According to TechRadar, there could be four phones revealed during the course of the event. This would break the trend of recent years, where it’s all been centered around a single flagship with a Plus or Pro version to boot. Though, we don’t have long to wait to find out if this is accurate.


The title of the event is actually “Hi, Speed” so we should expect to see a first look at Apple’s integration of 5G.

There’s also been reports – such as that of The Verge – which notes the tech giants are working towards the release of self-healing screen technology, where it smoothens out cracks in high heat scenarios. While not confirmed for this event, potentially we may also get a sneak peek at that as well.


It’s not far off now, so we’ll just have to wait and see.


iPhone 12 color leaks debunked ahead of Apple reveal

Journalist Roland Quandt appears to have debunked his own leaks pertaining to the apparent colors of the iPhone 12, just days ahead of the official reveal from Apple.

As has become a fairly common occurrence in the tech world, insiders and journalists are gearing up for the reveal of Apple’s latest iPhone, as the tech giants prepare to show what they have been working on.


The iPhone 12 is the latest in Apple’s insanely popular phone line, revolutionizing the world of touch screen mobiles. What they have up their sleeves remains to be seen, but the apparent colors were leaked on October 8 by Berlin-based journalist Roland Quandt.

iPhone in hand

Quandt’s leaks focused on the colors of the upcoming iPhone 12, which is set to be revealed at Apple’s October 13 event. He reported that sources indicated the iPhone 12 and its mini cousin would be available in green, blue, gold, grey and silver.


The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max were reported to be slightly more limited though, only available in grey, gold and silver.

However, just a couple of days after leaking those details, Quandt has deleted his tweets and retracted them. In an October 10 post, he said: “Useless and wrong iPhone tweets deleted. No need to spread retail employees fantasy info.”

Some had pointed out that his information was slightly different to previous leaks, which claimed that the Pro and Pro Max would both be available in a dark blue color.


It seems that Quandt has now retracted the information he shared, describing it as “retail employees fantasy info”. Perhaps he is having doubts about the veracity of his sources. Whatever the reasons, it appears that Apple fans will have to wait for the official event to see just how the iPhone 12 will take shape.
