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.
Apple iPhone 12 event start time
Screenshots of online invitations have been flooding the internet since they first started appearing, seen below from Tech Radar’s David Lumb.
As confirmed by this post, the iPhone event starts up on October 13 at 10am PDT (1pm ET, 6pm BST, 7pm CEST).
And we're scheduled: Apple Event on October 13, almost certainly revealing the iPhone 12 with 'Hi(gh) Speed' (like…5G?) pic.twitter.com/qZxCyfhLJ2

How to watch iPhone 12 Apple stream
The broadcast will be going live at the aforementioned time on Apple.com, 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.
