A new round of iPhone rumors suggest Apple will release four new iPhones in 2020, including a mini and a max model.

What’s going on?

Leaker LOvetodream tweeted the names of four potential iPhones coming during the fall 2020.

  • iPhone 12 mini
  • iPhone 12
  • iPhone 12 Pro
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max

“These brand names have been circling around the rumor mill for a while, but L0vetodream has built up a good track record of accuracy this year, making this leak particularly notable,” according to 9to5Mac.com.

It has been expected that there would be four different screen sizes for the iPhone in 2020.

  • “With there being four new iPhones in this year’s lineup, the use of four different names would help to differentiate the models significantly,” according to MacRumors.com.

The new lineup is expected to launch in October, which is a month later than normal. The coronavirus pandemic led to some supply issues that pushed shipments back.
