Rumors about the long-awaited iPhone 12 have been circulating as early as January of this year. As months went by, more details surfaced from reliable sources, including its possible pricing.
Apple fans are always looking forward to September because that is when the technology giant traditionally holds its annual event to introduce new products. The Apple Event last month, however, only unveiled the latest Apple Watch series and the new iPad.
Yesterday (October 14), Apple has finally put all speculations to rest as it unveiled the iPhone 12 series. We’re here to give you a look at the official details!
Say hello to the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the much-talked iPhone 12 mini — the 5.4-inch model in the series which is the smallest iPhone design since iPhone 5 was launched in 2012.
It’s been rumored that the iPhone 12 series is where we’ll see the iPhone in a deep blue color (Pacific Blue) for the first time, and Apple didn’t fail us! The iPhone 12 also features a flat edge for a sleek feel.
If you’re into a lighter, more compact phone, the iPhone 12 doesn’t disappoint as it is 11% thinner, 15% smaller, and 16% lighter than its predecessor. But if you’re into a bigger handset, the iPhone 12 Pro Max might be the right one for you. With a 6.7-inch display, it is the biggest iPhone Apple has ever created.
The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are equipped with a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with a new 1.6 aperture, allowing you to shoot photos with more depth. The triple camera system also houses a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with a 4x optical zoom range and 2.0 aperture. The Pro iPhone models also let you shoot in RAW!
The iPhone 12 series is the first roster of mobile devices from Apple that supports 5G. The new phones are also equipped with Apple’s A14 Bionic chip, a powerful processor that delivers better CPU performance and graphics.
The iPhone 12 starts at $799 (roughly P38,900), while the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are priced at $999 (around P48,700) and $1,099 (approximately P53,500), respectively. Preorder for these models will start on October 16, while shipping will begin on October 23.
The last but not the least, the iPhone 12 mini starts at $699 (roughly P34,000) and will be available for preorder and shipping on November 6 and November 13, respectively.
