How to watch today’s Apple iPhone event

If you were disappointed that no new phones were introduced at Apple’s “Time Flies” event last month, you can rest easy — Apple plans to introduce a rumored four brand-new iPhones today. The new phones are said to have a new squared-off design, sizes ranging from 5.4 inches to 6.7 inches, and 5G, although we’re not sure which phones and which types of 5G. And it is said that the phones will not come with chargers or earbuds — which may not be a problem if you’re already overstocked with chargers and already have a decent personal audio device.

But wait, there may be more. Currently, there is talk of new headphones, a Tile-like tracking device called an AirTag, and a smaller, cheaper HomePod. And perhaps a surprise or two.

Apple Event: iPhone 12 Expected With 5G Capabilities

Apple Inc.


AAPL 6.35%

later Tuesday is expected to reveal its latest iPhone, a device capable of connecting to a much faster 5G cellular network, which investors are betting will spur strong demand.

The latest smartphone arrives five years after iPhone unit sales peaked. Chief Executive Tim Cook has pushed the company to sell more-expensive versions of the device and rely on software services and wearable devices, such as smartwatches and headphones, to boost revenue.

Unlike in past years, Apple is holding its iPhone event without journalists, partners and employees in an auditorium, opting instead because of Covid-19 for a virtual event slated to begin at 1 p.m. New York time, similar to one last month for the company’s latest smartwatches and other updates. The event can be viewed on the company’s website.

The iPhone 12 is hotly anticipated by investors who have driven up the company’s shares 69% in

ItelliFest 2020 – a good example of the virtual tech event experience

(screenshot)

Last week, itelligence UK ran three days of virtual sessions in its effort to turn the annual in-person event into something useful for customers and potential customers. Dubbed itelliFest, it worked out pretty well although, for me, the experience was exhausting.  

Unlike my colleague Jon Reed, I’ve tended to eschew virtual events following the catastrophic cluster that was SAPPHIRENow 2020. At best, my attention span runs 90 minutes these days, hardly conducive to a vendor demanding my attention over a full day. But then ever it was so.

Even with in-person events, I stopped physically attending keynotes years ago as more firms live streamed. Why bother getting crushed or worse still shepherded to specific ‘reserved’ seating when I could get an aerial view from the flying cameras coupled to on the ground backchannel Tweet commentary while still enjoying a cuppa in my hotel room jammies? Attending a near non-stop

iPhone 12: Apple’s new phone is expected to come in four variations, each complete with OLED screens and 5G support. While the iPhone 12 mini will likely be a popular pick for many, we could also see an iPhone 12 Pro range with 120Hz displays and advanced LiDAR sensors.

Ordinarily, those ingredients would be enough for anyone, but this time it’s happening while investors and the entire world have one eye on polls three weeks ahead of the U.S. presidential election. Despite all this, volatility is the lowest since late
