The leak: Apple has a wildly unorthodox release schedule for iPhone 12 models this year, according to Kang 康总 (97.8% accurate).
- iPhone 12 (6.1-inch) and iPhone 12 Pro (6.1-inch): Pre-orders on Friday, October 16, orders arrive on Friday, October 23
- iPhone 12 mini (5.4-inch): Pre-orders on Friday, November 6, orders arrive on Friday, November 13
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7-inch): Pre-orders on Friday, November 13, orders arrive on Friday, November 20
Our take: Kang 康总 has nailed almost every detail of the past few Apple events down to the tee. That being said, the source gave a word of warning when it came to release dates, suggesting that this info is still fluid and not set in stone.
