Apple users had a busy day on Tuesday dissecting the invite that the tech giant posted for its upcoming 13 October event.
The invitation, which arrives with an AR Easter egg that users can unravel at home from their devices, features a dark blue background with orange and blue rings radiating in the middle. The card reads, “Hi, Speed.”

Without looking at the imagery, it’s most probable that the unveiling will include a series of flagship iPhones, which Apple traditionally reveals in September. Due to the coronavirus, production for Apple smartphones was delayed.
However, as past events have indicated, the invite offers clues to what Apple will introduce at the upcoming launch, so fans got down to business.
AirTag and audio products
The most visible clue, Apple enthusiasts believe, is the pair of orange and blue circles in the middle, which appears very similar to leaked images of Apple’s ‘AirTag’ item tracker. The gadget is rumored to assist users in locating belongings like wallets and backpacks.

Others wonder if the rings refer to the audio waves emitted from new ‘AirPods Studio’ over-ear headphones that were hinted in the iOS code, or if it symbolizes a tinier variant of the HomePod.
The “Hi, Speed” tagline also seems to corroborate with past reports that the iPhone 12 lineup will support 5G and be powered with the A14 processor.
Apple already introduced the A14 chip in the iPad Air, so it’s likely the new iPhones will feature this upgrade too.

Tech leakers have shared in the past that the successor of iPhone 11 Pro’s alluring Midnight Green finish will be a “Midnight Blue.” The orange could also hint at a color option that Apple will introduce to the iPhone 12 lineup.
What other clues can you infer from the invite, and do you think there’s any truth to these speculations?
