As the world awaits Apple to announce the launch date for its much-awaited and slightly-delayed iPhone 12, new reports have emerged that claim the first shipment of final units is going out to distributors on October 5.

“Event on October 13, as I mentioned before,” he said in a tweet late on Tuesday.
He claimed that the first iPhones to hit the stores are going to be the iPhone mini, which is the 5.4-inch version and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max.
