Another year, another iPhone. (Did I say that last year?) This is the iPhone’s last year of tweendom before it hits teenhood: Apple announced its four-model iPhone 12 line on Tuesday, the first major revamp of the iPhone’s design since 2017’s iPhone X, which introduced face unlocking and better screen technology. This year they sport an array of colors, more models and 5G wireless support across the lineup. In addition to the HomePod Mini smart speaker, we were treated to the MagSafe wireless charging system for the iPhone and a stealth release of the $50 Beats Flex wireless headphones.

Here’s everything Apple announced at its iPhone 12 event

Apple made us wait to get a glimpse of its 2020 iPhone lineup, and now it’s easy to see why. All told, it announced four new iPhone models on Tuesday. Add that a more affordable HomePod mini speaker, and it was a jam-packed event.

Apple’s Oct. 13 virtual event has come and gone. We got a slate of new devices — the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 MiniiPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, as well as the HomePod Mini smart speaker. But we’re still without the tech giant’s long-rumored smart tracker tag competitor, thought to be called AirTags. 

We’re crossing our fingers that AirTags might finally make their grand entrance at Apple’s rumored November event, when the tech giant is expected to announce the first Mac laptop with Apple silicon. Otherwise, it might not happen until March 2021, by tech analyst Jon Prosser’s estimations.

The AirTag tech was hinted at in the code for iOS 13 last summer, but rumors were circulating even before that

Apple’s upcoming virtual product launch will kick off on Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. BST) in Apple Park.
