This iPhone launch event is more important for the company than recent events because the iPhone 12 series is supposed to represent a “supercycle” for the smartphone.

While the latest iPad Pros feature an Apple-made A-series chip with 4 cores, the first Apple-made chips used in Macs are expected to have as many as 12 cores. The Mac is about to begin its most radical shift in over a decade, according to a new report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
