Apple has warned the iPhone 12 range is delayed, but now the company may have just leaked a surprising new release date Spotted by eagle-eyed 9to5Mac readers, reports say,
Today, Apple posted a test feed on its official YouTube account announcing a live event to be held on September 10- the being the same as the iPhone 11 launch last year. Also, it fits in perfectly with other previous iPhone launch dates: Sept 12 (iPhone XS, X), Sept 7 (iPhone 7), Sept 9 (iPhone 6S, 6).
Despite this correlation, several doubts have been cast upon this. Reliable tipster Jon Prosser dismissed it, which is to be expected since he promised a much later date.This, however has also been disputed. Curiously though, most doubts come down to two false assumptions.
First being a popular claim that Apple never holds events on a Thursday. This isn’t true. Apple has held Q3 hardware launch events on a Thursday in 2010, 2014 and 2016. Further, there’s a myth about iPhones only being launched on a Tuesday, when two of the last four iPhone launches (iPhone XS, 7) occurred on a Wednesday.
Second, when Apple CFO Luca Maestri confirmed the iPhone 12 line-up would be “available a few weeks later”, he was talking about their supply which people assumed as a delayed announcement also. Prior to Maestri’s comments, the event was pegged for early September, while two subsequent leaks have muddied the water with claims of split release schedules.
All of this amounts to, Thursday September 10 being a perfectly credible date. Nothing, however is confirmed as of now.
