Pinduoduo opens Apple iPhone 12 appointment, claims sale from September 16


Apple has already confirmed that the company will be holding a launch event on 15th September. At the event, the company is not expected to launch the next-generation iPhone 12 models and instead new Apple Watch and iPad are expected.

However, a report from China reveals that Pinduoduo hints at the early arrival of next-gen Apple smartphones. The company has opened appointments for the Apple iPhone 12 in China and claims that the sale will start from 16th September.

Do note that we couldn’t verify that this claim by Pinduoduo is correct, so take it with a pinch of salt. Also, it’s highly unlikely that the new iPhone 12 models go official later this week in China.

Apple has already confirmed that the iPhone 12 models launching this year will be “available a few weeks later.” There are several reports which claim that the new iPhones will go on sale from October.

Previous reports hint that pre-booking will start around mid-October and shipments of the base model beginning a week after that. But not all the models will go on sale together. As per the report, the iPhone 12 will be available for purchase in October itself, while other models in the lineup, including the iPhone 12 Pro, will go on sale in November.

As per the reports, the company will be launching the Apple Watch Series 6, a new iPad, new Apple TV, smaller HomePod, AirTags, and over-ear headphones at its launch event on 15th September. To know if anything else is coming, we’ll have to wait for the official launch event to take place.
