It’s been a lot of fun trying to predict when Apple will announce the iPhone 12 and when the handsets will actually go on sale, what with everything going on in the world at the moment. The latest report suggests two separate on-sale stages, with the Pro models coming last.
The report comes from a good source too – Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who isn’t often wrong, via 9to5Mac. Kuo says that the cheaper 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max models are being produced simultaneously and will arrive first.
That leaves the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max – the more expensive models – to launch a little later, though Kuo doesn’t specify how much later. The pricing for the four iPhone 12 versions has already been leaked.

The iPhone 12 launch dates, explained
There’s now enough leaked material on the iPhone 12 launch date to script a Hollywood movie. We suspect that part of the problem is that even Apple executives aren’t sure how well supply chains and production lines are going to manage in these uncertain times.
