The coronavirus pandemic has derailed a ton of events and has thrown launch cycles into a maelstrom of uncertainty, one that appears to have affected Apple and its upcoming devices too. While rumors of a potential delay have been making rounds for a while, leakster Jon Prosser – who has a fairly solid track record with Apple leaks – has now predicted the launch timeline of Apple’s remaining 2020 product portfolio.

As per Prosser, the iPhone 12 launch event will be held in the week of October 12, almost a month later than the company’s usual launch cycle. Pre-orders will commence in the same week, while the device will begin shipping next week. Talking about the iPhone 12 Pro line-up, pre-orders and shipments will reportedly happen in November, but a date has not been locked yet.

Apple, however, is claimed to launch the new Apple Watch and iPad(s) in the second week of September, via a press release, similar to how the iPhone SE (2020) dropped. But do process this massive leak with some skepticism, as Prosser himself notes that the final dates might change owing to the staggered launch of the iPhone 12 series.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
