Unlike Samsung or Google, which haven’t been able to keep a lot of information under wraps prior to officially announcing the Galaxy Note 20 duo, S20 FE, Pixel 5, and 4a 5G, or OnePlus, which is voluntarily disclosing many key 8T 5G features, Apple seems to be doing a relatively good job of maintaining the mystery over its highly anticipated October 13 event.

Specifically, if these revised forecasts prove accurate, iPhone 12 and 12 Pro pre-orders could kick off on October 16 ahead of a proper commercial debut on October 23. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 Mini is now reportedly scheduled for a November 13 release following a November 6 pre-order start, with the iPhone 12 Pro Max expected to begin shipping on November 20 after going up for pre-orders exactly a week earlier.

Obviously, that entails a significant pricing gap between the Pro and non-Pro models, with the compact iPhone 12 Mini likely to cost as little as $699, the “standard” iPhone 12 (aka Max) expected to start at $799, and the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max purportedly priced at $999 and $1099 respectively in their entry-level configurations.
Speaking of, the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max should start at 128GB storage space and go all the way up to 512 gigs, while the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini are rumored to use a downgrade to 64 gigs of local digital hoarding room as another method of cutting costs, capping off at 256GB storage.
