Apple said on Tuesday that it will hold a special event on October 13th, during which most observers believe it will reveal the new iPhones that support the fifth generation (5G) network.
And Apple wrote in the event invitation the phrase "Hi, Speed", hinting at the validity of the leaks that talk about support for fifth generation networks in upcoming iPhones, given that these networks are the next generation of communications networks that promise data speeds Huge.
It is noteworthy that Apple had announced last September its smart watch "Apple Watch Series 6 ″ (Apple Watch Series 6), and" iPad Air "(iPad Air), and the eighth generation of its computer tablet" iPad "(iPad).
Although the company was expected to announce iPhones as it used to every year, these phones were absent from the event.
The company previously warned that the new iPhones for the current year will be delayed, and the reason is likely to be weak production related to the Coronavirus, according to what Luca Maestre, Apple's chief financial officer, warned during the disclosure of Apple's third-quarter earnings in July.
"As you know, last year we started selling new iPhones in September," he said, adding, "We expect for the current year that the offer will be available after a few weeks."
Apple is expected to announce 4 new models of "iPhone 12" (iPhone 12) this year, and this includes the "regular" iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models.
The new phones are also expected to have new designs with sharper edges around the corners, similar to the Apple iPad Air and iPad Pro computers.
Apple shares have risen this year despite the coronavirus crippling economies around the world, thanks in large part to booming sales of work-from-home items.
Although Apple's shares fell from a record high on September 2, it is still near the stock market valuation of $ 2 trillion.
