iPhone 12 is the latest version of Apple’s flagship smartphone. Although it is similar in many respects to previous models (especially the iPhone 11 series), it has also undergone some major changes to make the best smartphones in the world even better.
Apple has not officially announced any news, but the general consensus is that the iPhone 12 will be released in mid-October 2020. Apple likes to release new products in the middle of the month, so it seems likely to release it in the week of October 12.
In addition, given that Apple tends to make announcements on Tuesday or Wednesday, our bet is on October 13 or 14.
What is the release date of iPhone 12?
Apple will announce the release date of the iPhone 12 when the iPhone 12 is released, so we cannot be sure. In other words, the new iPhone is usually on sale within 10 days to two weeks after the release, so it is expected that the release date of the iPhone 12 will be close to October 2020.
In recent years, Apple immediately released some new iPhone models, and then released other models in about a month. This happened to the iPhone XS and XR series.
They were announced at the same time, but the iPhone XS series was released on September 21, 2018, and the iPhone XR was released on October 26, 2018. Our thoughts on this are as follows.
What is the price of iPhone 12?
The exact price of the iPhone 12 will not be known until the announcement, but there are rumors that the price of the iPhone 12 may be lower than that of the iPhone 11. The starting price of iPhone11 is 699 dollars, the highest is 1449 dollars. There are rumors that the price of each model of the iPhone 12 may be about $50 lower, but don’t count on it until Apple makes an official statement.
The price of the top model may range from $649 to over $1,400.
iPhone 12 reservation information
Apple usually starts accepting pre-orders a few days after announcing the new iPhone. Therefore, it is expected that the iPhone 12 pre-order window will begin this weekend as announced.
How many models of iPhone 12 will there be?
This is one of the key questions about the iPhone 12. There are rumors that it will have four models, more than the three models released by Apple for the XS/XR and 11 series. Depending on the screen size and certain functions, the model will vary. The rumored iPhone 12 model is:
iPhone 12: 5.4-inch screen, 5G connection.
iPhone 12 Max: 6.1-inch screen, 5G connection.
iPhone 12 Pro: 6.1-inch screen, 5G connection, lidar.
iPhone 12 Pro Max: 6.7-inch screen, the fastest 5G connection, high-end ProMotion screen used on iPad Pro, LIDAR.
Main features of iPhone 12
iPhone 12 will become the standard configuration of all iPhone features that we are familiar with and love, such as Face ID, Apple Pay, AirPods support, and FaceTime. Some key new features included with iPhone 12 are expected to include:
5G: The latest and fastest cellular connection standard has entered the iPhone. Although 5G services have not been extended to the whole country, they are increasing. Currently, 5G usually provides twice the speed of 4G LTE on average. In the future, 5G maybe 10-20 times faster than 4G.
Lidar: The iPhone 12 Pro model may include a Lidar sensor, which has become part of some recent iPad Pros (such as iPad Pro 12.9). LIDAR is a depth-sensing technology that can be used for augmented reality and mapping purposes.
ProMotion display: The ProMotion display is another technology between the iPad Pro and iPhone 12 Pro models. It has a faster refresh rate and can achieve smoother and more natural scrolling and animation effects.
New physical design: recent iPhone models have rounded edges. There are rumors that the iPhone 12 series will remind people of the angular design of the iPhone 4 and 5 series.
New processors: The new generation of iPhones is based on faster new processors. It is expected that the iPhone 12 series will use Apple’s latest chip A14 to provide better performance.
No EarPods or charger: This is not a feature, nor is it a real benefit to users, but the iPhone 12 series may not come with the included wired EarPods headset or power adapter, and it is not possible to charge the iPhone battery from a wall outlet. If this is true, it is a signal that Apple is trying to promote sales of AirPods and its accessories.
