Apple plans to reveal four redesigned iPhones — the most dramatic overhaul since the iPhone X in 2017— with 5G, upgraded cameras, faster processors & wider screen size.
Los Angeles: Apple Inc. announced that its biggest product launch event of the year will be held Oct. 13. The Cupertino, California-based technology giant on Tuesday released the date of the event with the tagline “Hi, Speed.” The company plans to reveal four redesigned iPhones with 5G wireless capability, upgraded cameras, faster processors and a wider range of screen sizes, Bloomberg News has reported. The online event will mark Apple’s second product launch this year, following the company’s September announcement of a new iPad Air, refreshed entry-level iPad and updated Apple Watches.
The introduction of the new iPhones is occurring about a month later than usual after the company faced final testing and production delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite a rapid expansion into services and new devices, the iPhone remains Apple’s most important product. The smartphone generates about half of Apple’s revenue, and is the central driver of sales for AirPods and Apple Watches.
