Apple is expected to unveil new devices during the “Hi, Speed” event scheduled for Tuesday. The company is expected to showcase the successors to its current iPhones and unveil a few new devices for the masses.
What can fans and enthusiasts expect from Apple during the upcoming event? Here’s a quick look at what the company may or may not present a few days from now:
iPhone 12 Series
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 12 series – four new iPhone models that boast new features, the most notable of which are the new A14 Bionic chip and support for 5G.
The company is expected to announce four new iPhones in its flagship lineup. There’s the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Mini, the lower-end 6.1-inch iPhone 12, the more premium 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and the top of the line model, the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
All four are expected to feature the A14 Bionic chip, OLED display panels, support for 5G, upgraded cameras and a new design.
The two non-Pro models are said to feature dual rear cameras and may come in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage configurations. The Pro models, on the other hand, have triple rear cameras and will come in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage configurations.
Apple is also expected to announce the HomePod Mini – a smaller, cheaper version of its HomePod smart home speaker. Previous reports revealed that this device will have only two speakers (as opposed to the seven speakers in the bigger model) and will be aimed at helping Apple take a bigger share in the smart home speaker market.
While not much is known about the device, earlier reports revealed that Apple is already preparing to sell it and has cleared its stores of any non-Apple branded speakers.
Pricing remains unknown at the moment, however, but fans can expect it to cost significantly less than the original HomePod, which sells for about $299.
Apple might announce the AirPods Studio, its first-ever AirPods-branded pair of wireless headphones, during the event. It might not, however, be able to sell the device on or immediately after the event as mass production of the so-called AirPods Studio is set to be completed on Oct. 20, a prominent leaker reported, citing unnamed sources.
