However, it is not yet clear whether the iPhone 12 will be the center of attention on September 15th.
Other rumors say the company will be releasing four new iPhone 12 models, including a mini iPhone with a 5.4-inch screen.
All four new iPhone 12 models – Pro, Pro Max, Standard and "Mini" – will support 5G, according to LetsGoDigital.
