Apple reveals iPhone 12 event – but does the invite hide a secret?

It's finally here. After weeks of will-they/won't-they speculation, Apple has finally announced the dates of its next event, where it seems almost a given that we'll see the brand new iPhone 12. But the company is rumoured to be announcing some other products at the same time – and one could be hiding in plain sight on the invitation.

Apple yesterday announced that the event will take place on Tuesday 13 October (that's halfway through Amazon Prime Day – next week is going to be a busy one), with an invitation announcing "Hi, Speed". (Geddit?) Like other Apple event invites, this is an abstract and colourful affair – but one Apple leaker thinks the circular design could actually be showing off a brand new accessory.
