Apple Already promoted Watch and iPad
Apple announce virtual event for expected iPhone release.
Apple have announced a virtual event, scheduled for October 13, in which they are expected to present the new iPhone 12.
The new iPhone will be the first ever model compatible with the 5G internet network which is set to become the new standard in the coming years. It not only greatly increases the speed of browsing and downloading, but also offers sufficient breadth to allow the full development of the so-called ‘Internet of Things’, a network of physical objects embedded with tools to exchange data online with other devices.
Apple traditionally present their new phones through the major hardware event held in mid-September. However, this year, due to logistical problems caused by COVID-19, they couldn’t launch the new iPhone.
Despite this, the company held the event and took the opportunity to promote other devices, usually overshadowed by the iPhone, such as the updated versions of the Apple Watch and the iPad.
