A respected "Apple insider" who regularly reveals corporate secrets claims to know when the next two iPhone models will launch.

And the tipster has also leaked alleged release dates for the next Apple Watch and iPad models too. Every year, Apple makes a major gadget announcement in September.

But the firm has already admitted some products will be delayed this year. Now industry analyst and reputable leaker Jon Prosser says he knows Apple's exact launch roadmap for 2020.

According to Prosser, the Apple Watch 6 and a new iPad will be announced on the week of September 7. But rather than hosting a major event, Apple is tipped to unveil these gadgets through a press release.

Then Apple is expected to host a proper launch event for the iPhone 12 on the week commencing October 12. This is around one month later than usual and marks a major departure from Apple's usual schedule.

We could hear about a brand new iPad in just a few weeks

It's currently unclear with Apple with host an in-person event, given the ongoing global health crisis. Prosser believes that the regular iPhone 12 models will be available for pre-order on the week of October 12, shipping one week later.

And the iPhone 12 Pro models – which are typically more powerful and pricier – are expected to go on sale in November.

Of course, It is possible that Prosser may be wrong.

But the legendary analyst has accurately predicted most of Apple's biggest announcements in recent times. This year is expected to be a major turning point for Apple.

While rivals like Samsung and Huawei have raced ahead with numerous 5G models, no current iPhone supports the super-fast next-gen internet.

That's expected to change with at least one of this year's new iPhone models. It means users will be able to take advantage of faster 5G speeds, assuming they pay for a 5G-ready contract.

Sadly, Apple hasn't confirmed any specific plans for its upcoming round of gadgets, so take all leaks and rumours with due caution for now.
