Apple’s upcoming 2020 iPhones, likely to be called the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.

Yes it’s that time of year again and we are anticipating the launch of the new iPhone devices, with the iPhone 12 release date expected to be in September or October 2020, but as usual there are already dozens of rumours about the upcoming Apple devices.

We expect the 2020 iPhones to be called the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro if Apple follows the same naming scheme it used for the 2019 range.

iPhone 12 Predictions

As always we are incredibly excited to see the new range and to get started on producing cases and covers for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.

The 2020 iPhones will almost certainly feature major updates, introducing some of the first design changes that we’ve seen since the iPhone X was released in 2017. We are expecting four new phones in three display sizes which could come in at 5.4, 6.7, and 6.1 inches (x2).

Rumours online are suggesting the 6.7-inch and one 6.1-inch model will be the higher-end devices with triple-lens cameras, while the 5.4 and other 6.1-inch models will be lower-end iPhones with dual-lens cameras and a more affordable price point.

Regardless of price, all of the new iPhones in 2020 are expected to feature OLED display technology which is a nice touch.

Phone Size

At a predicted 5.4 inches, the new 2020 phone will be the smallest Apple has released since the 4.7-inch SE. At 6.7 inches, the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro is going to be Apple’s largest iPhone to date, topping the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max. The two 6.1-inch models will be similar in size to the existing iPhone 11 device.


The current online buzz suggests the new iPhones coming in 2020 will feature a significant redesign with a metal frame that’s similar to the frame of the iPhone 4 or the iPad Pro, which we personally love.

The iPhone 4 had a very distinctive flat look for the stainless steel frame, which is likely to be replicated in these new iPhones, bringing the design in line with the latest 2020 iPad Pro models.


2020 is going to be the first year that Apple introduces 5G support in the iPhone, which will allow the new devices to connect to 5G networks that are significantly faster than 4G LTE networks.

According to the rumours, all of the iPhones in the new range will feature 5G connectivity, although it isn’t clear if all iPhone 12 models will have the super fast mmWave support, and the latest reports suggest mmWave speeds could well be limited to the Pro models in particular countries.

All iPhone 12 rumours at a glance

  • What is it? The iPhone 12 is the follow-up to 2019’s iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
  • What could the iPhone 12 look like? It is strongly suggested that we could see a design more like the angular iPhone 5, replacing the softer curves of the iPhone 11, but apparently the notch is staying put.
  • When is it available? Probably October 2020. Apple’s CFO Luca Maestri recently confirmed a short two-week delay was inevitable for the new iPhone (via Macworld) while leaker Jon Prosser also suggested preorders would begin “w/c Oct 12”.
  • What will the price be? We would expect the price to be in line with existing models, so something above £700 – though of course this could rise due to recent increases in manufacturing costs.
  • Will it have 5G connectivity? Almost certainly yes, but recent reports point towards mmWave 5G only being available for the Pro Max version and maybe only in the US, Korea and Japan.
  • Will it come with USB-C? Rumours suggest we’re in for another year of Lightning, this time with a braided cable to stop it from breaking.

Nothing is confirmed as of yet so let’s see how accurate these predictions are during September and October.
