Right here we go once more: Apple’s final occasion was only a month in the past, however on Tuesday, the corporate will take the wraps off even more new devices. This time, it seems to be like we’ll get what everybody has been ready for: new iPhones.

We knew the iPhone(s) 12 would arrive later within the yr than regular—Apple confirmed as a lot in its July quarterly earnings call to set expectations—and after September’s occasion highlighted the Apple Watch and iPad, it seems to be just like the iPhone is lastly on deck.

It’s solely attainable that Apple will save the iPhone for but one other rumored launch occasion subsequent month, however that might be once we’ll see the primary Mac with Apple Silicon (we’re betting on it).

However we’re not anticipating simply iPhones to seem on Tuesday. Right here’s every part Apple is anticipated to announce.

iPhones 12 Lastly Arrive—with 5G

Apple’s cheeky “Hello, Pace” tagline on its occasion invitations is a transparent reference to 5G and the quicker speeds that the next-gen networks promise. (Whether or not they ship or not is an even bigger query.) It’s additionally a reference to the A14 Bionic processor that can virtually undoubtedly be included on this yr’s iPhones.

The iPhone 12 lineup is rumored to incorporate not two, not three, however 4 new telephones, which is a giant deal, as a result of a type of telephones is anticipated to be pint-sized. No, not like this yr’s iPhone SE, which gave the impression of it could be a small cellphone however was really the scale of an iPhone 8—a regular-sized cellphone with a tiny display screen. This 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini will appear like its bigger siblings, with an almost edge-to-edge show, Face ID, and flattened design with squared-off sides (just like the most recent iPads). A brilliant-sized 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Professional Max can be anticipated to affix the lineup, although recent rumors suggest that mannequin could launch in November. Then there shall be two 6.1-inch iPhones 12 fashions: a Professional model with a chrome steel physique and triple-lens digital camera system (and LiDAR sensor), and a less expensive iPhone 12 with an aluminum physique and dual-lens cameras.

This year’s iPhones, like last year’s, will be differentiated by their cameras.

Notably, a 5.7-inch iPhone just like the present 11 Professional will not be obtainable, so that you’ll have go bigger or downsize.

However all fashions are anticipated to incorporate a 5G modem (although the Execs will reportedly be appropriate with a wider spectrum of 5G), the flatter, iPad-like design with OLED show, and the A14 Bionic.

The brand new iPhones will reportedly vary in worth from $700 for the mini mannequin, all the best way as much as $1,150 for the Professional Max.

AirPods, however Make Them Headphones

Apple has been content material to let its subsidiary Beats dominate the headphones market, however after launching a number of profitable iterations of its Bluetooth AirPods, the corporate is reportedly planning to launch its personal over-the-ear headphones: AirPods Studio. The noise-canceling headphones will tackle rival fashions from Bose and Sony, and have the identical seamless iPhone integration that AirPods do.

Apple recently booted third-party headphones from its on-line and bodily shops, so it appears assured {that a} pair of Apple-branded headphones are on the best way.

A Smaller, Cheaper HomePod

Rumors of a pint-sized HomePod speaker have been churning forward of subsequent week’s occasion, and it appears all however sure that Apple will reboot its sensible speaker lineup with a $100 model referred to as the HomePod Mini.

The brand new HomePod is anticipated to be a 3rd of the scale of the present mannequin, so it is smart that its worth would even be a 3rd of its $300 predecessor. However given which you could decide up a Nest mini with Google Assistant and an Echo mini with Alexa for $50, and Siri still struggles with even basic tasks, it’s unclear how Apple will differentiate its newest speaker.

AirPower, Spherical Two

A new report indicates that Apple is probably planning to launch magnetic charging docks alongside the iPhone 12: one that may cost a single machine, and one other that may cost two units. The corporate is seemingly ditching the cursed AirPower moniker, nevertheless, and reportedly going with MagSafe Charger for the single-device pad and MagSafe Duo for the dual-device charger.

One Extra Factor? (Most likely Not)

We’re nonetheless anticipating Apple to point out off a brand new MacBook with its homegrown Apple Silicon ARM-based processor inside, however don’t anticipate to see that at subsequent week’s occasion. In response to Bloomberg, Apple has one other occasion lined up for November devoted to the Mac.

Apple shall be live-streaming Tuesday’s occasion, which kicks off at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, on its web site. We’ll even be live-blogging the entire thing, so be part of us!
