Looks like I was correct about there being a Press Release today, just not about what was in it.

“Join us from Apple Park”, with this simple phrase, Apple summons the public to announce its new products and puts an end to speculation. He main candidate is the iPhone 12, which is expected to come in a total of four flavors with a new flat-edge design:
iPhone 12: 5.4-inch OLED screen, aluminum chassis, A14 processor and dual camera. iPhone 12 Max: 6.1-inch OLED screen, aluminum chassis, A14 processor and dual camera. iPhone 12 Pro: 6.1-inch OLED screen, steel chassis, A14 processor and triple camera with LiDAR. iPhone 12 Pro Max: 6.7-inch OLED screen, steel chassis, A14 processor and triple camera with LiDAR.
The Steve Jobs Theater will be empty once again, although it will surely be the epicenter of the show.
The first two models are expected to be the most affordable. Specifically, the iPhone 12 could have a lower starting price than the current iPhone 11. As for the “Pro” models, their main differentiation is the camera with its LiDAR, size and materials.
The keynote is expected to be pre-recorded, similar to the WWDC main presentation. In that occasion, Apple deployed all its filmmaking power, learned from Apple TV +. Being online, there will be no audience made up of journalists and company employees.
The first generation of iPhone with 5G but without headphones or power adapter
Rumors suggest that the iPhone 12 will be the first models of the company with 5G connection. There are doubts about what type of connectivity or speeds they will offer, pointing to a possible dependence on the availability and type of networks around the world.
There are numerous models from other brands and at very affordable prices that have a 5G connection. But they are not the “real” type, known as the mmWave millimeter band. It is estimated that the cost of these components it is high enough to seek to compensate in another way.
According to rumors, Apple plans to remove the power adapter and Lightning earbuds from the box, keeping the charging cable. Not only because of the cost savings itself, but also because of the decrease in weight and size of the box itself. Being more compact, transport and logistics are simplified.
With this announcement, there are a few days until we have doubts. IPhone 12, or whatever this new generation ends up calling itself, it’s going to give a lot to talk about as soon as the curtains of the Steve Jobs Theater are pulled.
