Carrier marketing email confirms 'iPhone 12' 5G support

Carriers are preparing for the launch of a 5G "iPhone 12," as shown by a leaked marketing email from a wireless carrier.

Well-known leaker Evan Blass shared a screenshot of a leaked carrier marketing email to Twitter on September 9. The email reads "Hello iPhone 12. Be the first to experience it on [redacted carrier name] 5G."

It's long been rumored that the "iPhone 12" will support 5G cellular networks. The email also tells users to "Stay Active with 'Apple Watch Series 6,'" another Apple product that has not been officially announced yet.

Apple is rumored to release four new smartphones in the "iPhone 12" lineup this fall, which will likely boast a number of improvements over the previous generation.

Apple confirmed it would be holding its usual special event on September 15, continuing its annual tradition for one more year. While it will be a "virtual" presentation instead of one with a live audience, the show will still include a number of new product launches.
