As expected, Apple unveiled its latest iPhone generation at the oddly named ‘Hi, Speed’ event tonight, 13 October. Pretty much all the details of the launch leaked ahead of time, but the company still managed to put on an impressive and persuasive show: we’re all particularly excited about the new iPhone 12 mini.
Here’s everything you need to know about the iPhone 12 launch, including release date, design changes, new features, pricing for the full range & tech specs.
Apple also announced that League of Legends: Wild Rift will be released for the iPhone 12 later this year.
What’s the new iPhone called?
No surprises here – the only question was whether Apple would go for the ‘mini’ branding on the smallest model, and it has. There are four models:
- iPhone 12 mini (5.4in)
- iPhone 12 (6.1in)
- iPhone 12 Pro (6.1in)
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7in)
Price & availability
All four models were announced tonight, but Apple is splitting them into two groups for the actual launch.
The two ‘medium’ 6.1in phones, the 12 and 12 Pro, will be available for pre-order on 16 October and go on sale on 23 October. Here’s where to pre-order the iPhone 12 with detailed pricing information.
The iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, meanwhile, will be delayed until next month. They will be available for pre-order on 6 November and go on sale on 13 November.
Here’s the starting prices for the four models:
- iPhone 12 mini: From £699/$699
- iPhone 12: From £799/$799
- iPhone 12 Pro: From £999/$999
- iPhone 12 Pro Max: From £1,099/$1,099
