iPhone 12 to ship ahead of 12 Pro in October


The rumor: Apple is planning a “staggered” release for the iPhone 12 lineup, according to Mark Gurman (86.7% accurate).

  • While the 5.4 and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models will launch first, the 6.1 and larger 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro models will ship later
    • It’s unclear whether or not the Pro models will be shipping in October
  • DigiTimes (61% accurate) previously suggested that the two 6.1-inch models would roll out first

Our take: This feels far more realistic than one Pro and one non-Pro model shipping together. I can only hope that the extra time needed for the Pro models is to ensure a 120Hz display makes the cut…
