Apple launches new iPhones every September. However, the launch of the upcoming smartphone lineup from the brand, the iPhone 12 series, is said to be delayed by almost two months due to the COVID-19 impact.
A report from DigiTimes that came out yesterday claimed that Apple will complete the second phase of Engineering Validation and Testing (EVT) of the iPhone 12 series by the end of June. Well, that news now seems to be true.
The upcoming iPhones are indeed being validated (certified) as we have now come across a certification of nine unannounced Apple iPhone models on the EEC certification platform. That is not all. We have also spotted a new Mac on EEC. Let us have a look.
New Apple iPhones get EEC certification
The EEC certification that we have come across today clearly mentions that it for ‘Smartphones of the Apple brand.’ And it mentions nine new and unannounced phones from the Cupertino-based tech giant, the A2176, A2172, A2341, A2342, A2399, A2403, A2407, A2408, and the A2411. Considering that no existing Apple iPhones have these model numbers, it is pretty obvious that these smartphones are the upcoming iPhones from the brand and that these are most probably different models of the iPhone 12 series.
Going by the model numbers, it looks like the Apple A2176 and the Apple A2172 are the affordable models in the series (most probably the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Max). The Apple A2341, A2342, A2399, A2403, A2407, A2408, and the Apple A2411 seem to be different variants of the high-end models in the series (most probably the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max). Although, we are not sure about it. The EEC certification reveals that all these smartphones run on the iOS 13 operating system.
New Apple Mac product gets EEC certification
Along with the certification of new iPhones, we have also spotted a certification of an unannounced PC from Apple, bearing the model number A2330, on the EEC certification platform. The certification reveals that the PC runs on macOS 10.15.
Apple is said to launch an ARM-based Mac during the WWDC 2020 event. So, it is possible that the Apple A2330 that we have spotted today is the one with the ARM processor. Although, we are not sure about it at the moment.
