What you need to know
- iPhone 12 icons have landed on the iCloud website.
- They show off a smaller notch on at least one of the models.
- Apple will announce its new iPhone lineup at tomorrow's "Hi, Speed" event.
Reported by 9to5Mac, Apple has uploaded four new iPhone icons to the iCloud website. The new icons, while small in resolution, seem to depict the front of the four new iPhone 12 models. When compared to the icons for the iPhone 11 lineup, the new iPhones seem to feature a slightly smaller notch.
The new icons were spotted by @AppleSWUpdates on Twitter, who posted that the names of the images are for the "iPhone13,1 13,2 13,3 and 13,4." This would indicate that these new icons are for the iPhone 12 lineup, as the names for the current iPhone lineup begin with 12.
Have you ever noticed those images in the iCloud or the Apple ID website? Apple has uploaded 4 images for the iPhone13,1 13,2 13,3 and 13,4. No released iPhone uses those identifiers (the SE 2 is 12,8)👀 Just saying that those images are identical to the one used for the 11 Pro pic.twitter.com/7uRuuKu8aNHave you ever noticed those images in the iCloud or the Apple ID website?

9to5Mac compared the images of the current iPhones and the new iPhones and discovered that at least one of the new iPhones, most likely the iPhone 12 mini, will feature a smaller notch.
Apple is set to announce its new iPhone 12 lineup at tomorrow's "Hi, Speed" event, which will kick off at 10:00 AM PT. Other announcements could include the company's new AirPods Studio headphones, AirTags, and HomePod mini.

I mean it makes sense the device is smaller so they had to make a slightly smaller notch, otherwise it would have taken up 90% of the top of the screen and notifications would not have fit there.
Who needs to see battery life?
