Last month, Apple streamed a socially distanced presentation of some of its new hardware, including new Apple Watches, iPads, and the launch of the Apple One services bundle. Due to production delays, the long-awaited reveal of the new iPhone 12 gets its own event today.
During the live-streamed event, Apple is expected to unveil updates to its wireless AirPods and its Apple Home speaker, CNET reports.
Below, we've broken down what to expect from today's digital-only event, as well as how and where to watch it.
What to expect from Apple's iPhone event
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Max, and iPhone 12 Mini. All four handsets will likely support 5G wireless as standard, feature Apple's Super Retina XDR display, and support Doly Vision HDR standard. Check out the rumored breakdown for each model here.
A little over a year since the iPhone 11 was announced, there's now a lot riding on these new handsets. "Across the board, we are seeing an uptick around production and pent-up demand," Wedbush market analyst Daniel Ives wrote in a note to investors last week. Consumers have kept their old devices longer in recent years, and as many as one-third of the iPhones in use worldwide are eligible to be upgraded, Ives estimated. That makes the iPhone 12 "the most significant product cycle for Cook & Co. since iPhone 6 in 2014," he wrote.
