The iPhone 12 is an anticipated new model of iPhone being developed by Apple Inc. It is reported to be part of a device family that is expected to be released sometime in October 2020 to succeed the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

Leaked specifications

Early specifications have been speculated as a result of leaked source code from beta versions of iOS 14.[1][2] Sources from Apple's supply chain indicated that the iPhone 12 lineup is believed to be adopting a design reminiscent of the iPhone 4 in as many as 3 sizes in standard and Pro versions.[3][4] A 5nm version of the Apple A14 being manufactured by TSMC is expected to exceed performance of the most recent iPad Pro.[5]

By mid 2020, manufacturing dummies were reportedly released into the supply chain to allow for the design of cases and accessories.[6]

Production plans

Market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that releases of iPhone 12 models may be delayed or staggered due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. A major manufacturing contractor is Foxconn, with many facilities located in the Greater China region.[7] The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple had moved back mass production plans by about a month and that shortages could be expected.[8] Sources in South Korea reported that LG received an order for up to 20 million OLED screens, while Samsung received an order for up to 55 million screens, which are believed to be destined for use in new iPhone models.[9] In an earnings call on July 30, 2020, Apple CFO Luca Maestri confirmed that new iPhones would be delayed by several weeks to sometime in October.[10]
