Apple is kicking off its “Hi, Speed” iPhone 12 event at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET on October 13th. The last time Apple took the stage in September, the company focused on the iPad and Apple Watch Series 6. We’ve been waiting for a while, but now it’s time to officially see the iPhone 12. Read on to find out how to watch the event as it unfolds and what we expect Apple to announce.
Watch on Apple’s Website
Like it did with its September iPad and Apple Watch event, Apple will be live streaming the October event on its website.
Just open your web browser and point it to Apple’s website which showcases the event. You also can go directly to Apple’s Events webpage, where the event will be streamed live and available for review shortly after the event is over.
Watch on YouTube
Apple also has a YouTube channel where the company releases its promotional videos as well as live-streams its major events. Apple already has the event stream listed on YouTube and allows you to set a reminder so you won’t miss any part of the event. As it does with its event’s web page, the event will be posted to YouTube when it is over so you can watch it whenever you want.
Watch on an iOS or tvOS Device
Can’t access a web browser? No worries, you can fire up the Apple TV app on any compatible device and tune into the event that way.
What Do We Expect to See?
The highlight of the event will be the iPhone 12 lineup. Apple is expected to unveil four different iPhone 12 models, including the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and the 6.5-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. All four devices are expected to feature 5G connectivity and an OLED display.
Pricing may start as low as $699 for the iPhone 12 mini.
Rumors hint that Apple may also be releasing an affordable version of the HomePod dubbed the HomePod mini. The HomePod mini is expected to cost $99 and could go on sale starting in November.
Also on tap may be a pair of new wireless chargers equipped with Apple’s MagSafe technology. Rumors suggest Apple may be planning for the MagSafe Charger to be capable of charging a single device, whereas the MagSafe Duo Charger will presumably could charge two devices at once.
