Apple files application for nine new iPhones and 1 new MacBook with the European Economic Commission (EEC)
Apple has filed a registration for as many as nine new iPhones models with the European Economic Commission. The registration application also includes a brand new MacBook. The registration application includes iPhone models A2176, A2172, A2341, A2342, A2399, A2403, A2407, A2408, and the A2411. Many of the above iPhone models may be transitioned into different models of the iPhone 12 series. MacRumors believes that only two of these, A2176 and the A2172 refer to the two affordable iPhone models which will be made available by Apple later this year.
Right now tech watchers and Apple fanbois are eagerly awaiting the Apple iPhone 12 launch event due to take place in September 2020. It is believed that one of the above models will also be launched with the iPhone 12. Apple insiders say that the Apple launch event may be postponed by 2 to 3 months due to coronavirus pandemic and the recent riots in the United States.
Tech website, DigiTimes claimed yesterday that Apple will complete the second phase of Engineering Validation and Testing (EVT) of the iPhone 12 series by the end of June and will be ready for release in September.
It looks like some of the above models will be released later this year or early next year to iPhone buyers. Apple iPhone 12 will have OLED display and come in one 5.4-inch iPhone, two 6.1-inch models, and one 6.7-inch iPhone. Macrumors says that 6.7-inch iPhone and one 6.1-inch model will be higher-end OLED devices with triple-lens cameras, while the 5.4 and 6.1-inch models will be lower-end iPhones with dual-lens cameras and a more affordable price tag.
The Apple EEC registration application also has a brand new Mac. MySmartPrice spotted the MacBook bearing the model number A2330, on the EEC certification platform. The certification reveals that the PC runs on macOS 10.15. It could be the ARM-based Mac which Apple is going to launch at the WWDC 2020.
