This information, which has yet to be officially confirmed, has been released on Twitter @L0vetodream, a habitual in this type of circumstances and usually correct in its forecasts.
In this way, the next iPhone family would be the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro, the Pro Max and the iPhone 12 mini. The size of the latter would be 5.4 inches, while the iPhone 12 Max would reach 6.7 inches.
The price of the standard iPhone 12 is expected to be around 749 euros, so the iPhone 12 mini would be cheaper, although there are still no estimates in this regard, nor of course an official confirmation.
It should be remembered that all the next models of the iPhone 12 will be compatible with the 5G connection, and have other novelties, such as processors manufactured in 5 nanometers and OLED screens with update frequency of 60 hertz.
In any case, it will be necessary to wait until the presentation event of October 13 for all these leaks to be confirmed or not.

This is how iriusrisk is internationalized, the startup of ethical hackers convinced that you can save a lot if you think about cybersecurity before you start programming
IriusRisk is another startup that comes to demonstrate the potential of the cybersecurity business sector in Spain.
IDC research Spain estimates that the industry reaches in the country an expenditure of 1,381 million euros, 6% more than what invested in 2019. This forecast was also made before the crisis of COVID-19 broke out. The internationalization of startups like this, proves it.
Born in 2014, it develops a platform of the same name with which they are able to help developers create new tools and applications prioritizing security from design.
In software engineering and development, the term Secure by design is the one that designates all those applications that have been created with computer security as one of its fundamentals. It is a term similar to Privacy by design that has become so fashionable in recent months with the advent of mobile apps to track coronavirus contacts in Europe.
The premise is that a computer tool will be safe if its architecture, design, programming and development is done taking into account all the holes that need to be covered to avoid major scares.
Stephen De Vries details that IriusRisk is one of the main products they have in their portfolio. "A software to help developers design secure applications from the start, before they even start writing code."
Continuum Security was the name of this company until this summer they decided to change the name to their main product, Irius. "The platform can advise developers on what cybersecurity risks they will encounter during the development of their application, and how to avoid them during their development."
The name change responds to a clearly strategic issue: Continuum and Security are very common words in English, and this Spanish startup is in the process of international expansion. They are already opening sales offices in the United States and the United Kingdom; and many of their customers already knew the company by the name of its main product.
De Vries and his partner and partner, Cristina Bentué, have been ethical hackers for years. They have done consulting work for large private companies trying to detect all vulnerabilities that existed in newly developed applications.
"That's where we saw an opportunity. Many companies were spending a lot of money on testing their developments. Not only in testing them, but also in later correcting the faults we detected. And many of these failures were easily avoidable: they could have been avoided with a prior conversation with the development team, warning them of the problems they were going to face, " explains De Vries.
That'S why the company'S CEO and founder understands that IriusRisk "is not a science fiction tool." "It's a communication tool for security experts to explain to developers what will be safe for their work."
De Vries took the step together with Bentué and in 2012 they created Continuum Security, now IriusRisk, which still retains its headquarters in Huesca. The purpose of the company is to maintain the heart of the firm and the entire technical team in Spain, while expanding into the Anglo-Saxon market.
In 2017 the startup already closed a round of financing of 1.5 million euros in which Swanlaab venture Factory participated together with JME Venture Capital and Portuguese Sonae IM. Until this round, the company had already enjoyed organic growth. In 2015 came the first sale of the license of IriusRisk, and De Vries and Bentué began to devote 100% of their time to the firm.
Then it was two, then four, then six... and today there are just over 35 professionals who develop IriusRisk and sell the license of this software that helps developers in various markets. De Vries detects potential competitors in countries such as the United States, Canada and Sweden, as well as some free and free software tools that, however, are not comparable to commercial solutions such as Irius.
Of these thirty professionals, IriusRisk has a team focused on cybersecurity intelligence. IriusRisk is an automated platform that helps the developer, but vulnerabilities and threats when making a program or a computer solution can appear at any time.
For this reason, De Vries details that both the members of this intelligence team, as the largest customers of the platform, contribute to a "knowledge base" with what iriusrisk's own solution is improving day by day detecting more and more vulnerabilities.
Thus, the startup now looks at its internationalization while focusing on the development of applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) or development in the cloud, a territory still somewhat unexplored.
With an office in Atlanta (United States) and London (United Kingdom), IriusRisk wants to maintain its headquarters in Huesca. "The cybersecurity industry has a huge future, especially in Spain," says De Vries. "It's a very cost-competitive market." "The key is to sell internationally."
It still detects different trends in the cybersecurity market on both sides of the Atlantic. While in the United States cybersecurity is still a sector in which software solutions are very present, in Spain and in Europe there is more advocacy for cybersecurity as a service.
Here IriusRisk has found a comfortable balance by which he used to enter the list of the most prominent startups in the cybersecurity industry in Spain that he made a few weeks ago.
