Leaks: This is the launch date for Apple devices


The leak, Jon Prosser, published a leak in which he said that the upcoming Apple devices will be scheduled for the following:

Week 37, on September 7, a new generation of Apple Watch as well as iPad without conferences will be launched.

Week 42, on October 12, Apple will hold a conference to unveil iPhone devices.

Week 42 also, Apple will start booking iPhone 12 devices and it will ship on October 19.

◉ iPhone 12 Pro will be delayed release until November.

The leak is strange and we do not expect in the iPhone Islam that Apple will launch the watch and the iPad without conferences. It has never been done by Apple working these devices treating the Mac with a silent update, especially with expectations of many advantages in the iPad and the watch .

Brazil is considering whether or not Apple has the right to use the name of the iPhone

In 2012, IGB Electronica launched a legal war against Apple in Brazil, accusing Apple of stealing its trademark "iPhone" which it owned in Brazil. In 2013, the judge decided that both Apple and IGB Electronica had the right to use the name of the iPhone, then returned in 2018 and the verdict was confirmed. But it seems that the Brazilian company is determined to continue as it filed a complaint with the Supreme Court accusing Apple of stealing the name of the iPhone, which it uses to sell Android phones in Brazil; IGB Electronica wants to prevent Apple from selling its phones in the name of the iPhone and that this name "iPhone" is for its Android phones only :-).

Before you just amazed at you information, which is that the iPhone was released in 2007, while the Brazilian company submitted a request to register this name in 2000, just as Cisco did in America and had the name of the iPhone as a landline phone at the time. But Apple is defending itself and says that the iPhone name was given to the company in 2008, when it had applied in 2000, but it was not granted to it. It is unfair that it was granted in 2008 and at that time the Apple iPhone was on the market, so the grants would have hurt them.
