We have been talking about Apple's next iPhones for several months. And normally, we will not have to wait very long to finally have official information on these smartphones, which the media call “iPhone 12”. For the moment, the Cupertino company has not yet announced the date of presentation of these iPhone 12. However, as reported by the 9to5Mac site, it is possible that it has accidentally revealed this date to its subscribers on YouTube.
As many Apple subscribers on the video platform have noted, the company recently did a live test that suggests the next keynote will take place on September 10. But of course, for now, this is information that still needs to be viewed with caution.

Apple's "special event" to present the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro took place on September 10, 2019. However, this year September 10 falls on a Thursday and according to 9to5Mac's advice, it This is a very unlikely day for an Apple event.
On the other hand, Apple has already indicated that its new smartphones will be late this year. And because of this, we have reasons to think that the iPhone 12 presentation keynote could also be slightly delayed so that there is not too much difference between the presentation date and the launch date of these devices. .
iPhone 12: 5G, new design and LiDAR scanner?
When we think of iPhone 12s, we naturally think of 5G. While Android smartphone makers started adopting 5G as early as 2019, Apple currently has no models that use this technology. However, the Cupertino company has already settled its dispute with Qualcomm in order to be able to source 5G modems for its iPhone 12s.
Another particularity of these new iPhones: there would be four models. Apple is rumored to be offering an iPhone 12 (a relatively compact model), an iPhone 12 Max, an iPhone 12 Pro and an iPhone 12 Pro Max. As for the design, Apple could go back to the flat bezels, which means that the iPhone 12s could therefore have borders that are reminiscent of the iPhone 4.
And regarding the sensors on the back, sources suggest that in addition to three cameras, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max could be equipped with a LiDAR scanner. On the iPad Pro, this scanner provides 3D models of the user's environment, which improves the quality of augmented reality applications.
