Although the names of these iPhones are not confirmed but the four new models which are to be launched are confirmed.
Rumors suggest that Apple has made some upgradations to its display from last year. Last year’s iPhone 11 Series featured an OLED with a 60Hz refresh rate. Apple increased the refresh rate to 120Hz and added new technology to its display which it calls ‘pro motion’ technology.

The news from the sources suggests that these new iPhones could come in three different screen sizes. The screen sizes are expected to be 5.4, 6.1, and 6.7-inches. We may see the iPhone 12 pro max to come with the biggest screen size of 6.7-inch. This will be the biggest iPhone in terms of screen, until now iPhone 11 pro max is the biggest iPhone with a screen of 6.5-inches.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro could have a 6.1-inch screen. And the iPhone 12 max is expected to have a 5.4-inch screen.
The news suggests that the new iPhones could feature a brand new processor with capabilities to connect the 5G network. These new iPhones are expected to come with the latest A14 Bionic chip. A survey reports that this new Processor will be 40% faster than its predecessor A13 bionic chip.
This new A14 Bionic chip is based on a 5nm process compared to the 7 nm used in the A13. TSMC the chip manufacturer for Apple claims that this new chip will increase the battery life of the iPhone and will be 15% faster.
The iPhone 12 series will feature the new iOS 14 out of the box. Apple announced in WWDC that it will release iOS 14 alongside the iPhone 12. So, we will see many new features in the user interface of the iOS 14.
Apple made some serious changes in the User interface through iOS 14 such as Compact calls, change in Siri interface, customizable widgets, and many more. Apple released the update for all of its compatible iPhones so, it is confirmed that iPhone 12 will come with iOS 14.
The camera of the upcoming iPhone has been the center of the news as Apple is expected to change the camera setup of its new iPhone. The rumors are coming from the last couple of weeks that Apple could include a new LiDAR scanner in its camera setup.
According to the news, the iPhone will have a LiDAR scanner in its rear camera setup. This LiDAR uses the laser light to calculate the distance of the subject from the camera lens. This new scanner will help the camera lens to calculate the accurate distance of the objects to shoot in low light conditions.
Prosser via his Youtube video also confirmed the LiDAR scanner to feature in the new iPhones 12 series. Although this scanner is only confirmed in the iPhone 12 Pro Max and not for the other three iPhones. So, at least we can except it in the pro models.

So, now the official date of the new iPhone 12 series is confirmed as October 13.
Apple always has been precise regarding the price of its gadgets. As per the rumors, the new iPhone could come at a higher price than usual iPhones. The reason behind the higher pricing could be the addition of the LiDAR scanner and A14 Bionic chip.
