Apple Event Today: How to Watch iPhone Launch Live Stream
Apple is hosting its launch event today where it is likely to unveil the anticipated iPhone 12 lineup. The event will take place virtually — just like the September event where the Cupertino-based company unveiled its new smartwatches, iPad models, and a subscription bundle called the Apple One. At today’s event, Apple is expected to bring not just one or two but four new iPhone models — all under the iPhone 12 branding — along with 5G support. The company is formally calling the event “Hi, Speed” that is enough to speculate a faster experience through the new iPhone models. You can also expect the usual “one more thing” announcement by the company that could be related to a new HomePod speaker or over-the-ear headphones.
Apple event timing, live stream details
The much-awaited Apple event will begin at 10am PDT (10:30pm IST) today. Unlike the past iPhone launches, this will be hosted virtually from the Apple Park. It will be streamed live through the dedicated Apple Events site as well as YouTube. Furthermore, you can watch today’s Apple event live from the video embedded below.
Apple event announcements expected
If we look at what has so far been churned out by the rumour mill, Apple is launching four new iPhone models at the event that will be called the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the iPhone 12 mini. All new models will have 5G support, though their US versions are said to have antennae for faster, mmWave frequencies. Apart from the new iPhone models, Apple may announce its new HomePod or over-the-ear headphones at today’s event. Initial reports suggested the launch of its AirTags alongside the 2020 iPhone family. However, that plan seems to have been changed.
iPhone 12 series price (expected)
In terms of pricing, the iPhone 12 mini seems to be the most affordable model in the latest range, with a starting price tag of $699 (roughly Rs. 51,200). The iPhone 12, on the other hand, is likely to start at $799 (roughly Rs. 58,600), while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max could begin at $999 (roughly Rs. 73,200) and $1,099 (roughly Rs. 80,600), respectively.
