On October 13 at 20:00 Moscow time, a presentation of the Apple Event will take place, which will show the iPhone 12 and other new products. There are only a few days left until the event, but new rumors and leaks continue to appear on the network.
On the social network Weibo, an insider under the nickname Kang, who previously published reliable information regarding the fourth generation iPad Air, spoke about the new features of the iPhone 12 and HomePod mini.
IPhone 12 line
About all devices in order:
- iPhone 12 mini with 5.4-inch display. The smartphone will be available in black, white, red, blue and green, and will receive wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle cameras with f / 1.6 aperture. Regarding the starting prices with all devices, confusion: someone claims that for a small iPhone they will ask for $ 649, and someone is already talking about $ 800;
- iPhone 12 with a diagonal of 6.1 inches – the continuation of the popular iPhone 11. The smartphone will be available in black, white, red, blue and green. There are also two cameras: wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle with f / 1.6 aperture. Starting price – $ 749–799;
- iPhone 12 Pro with 6.1-inch display. The “standard” price tag is $ 999 for the basic version. Four colors: gold, silver, graphite (the updated color announced at the Apple Watch Series 6 presentation) and dark blue. Three cameras: wide-angle (26 mm, 1 ×), ultra-wide-angle (13 mm, 0.5 ×), telephoto (52 mm, 2 ×) + LiDAR sensor for measuring depth;
- iPhone 12 Pro Max with 6.7-inch display. The starting price is $ 1099. There are also four colors, but the cameras are much more interesting: firstly, the sensor will be 47% larger (1.7 µm), and secondly, a telephoto with a focal length of 65 mm, which will give a threefold increase.
All smartphones will work on 5th generation networks and will receive OLED Super Retina XDR displays with a new ceramic substrate that will increase the hardness – it will be more difficult to break the screen, which we will definitely check.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB versions, while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB versions. The kit will only include a USB Type-C – Lightning cable.
According to an insider, sales of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will begin on October 23-24, iPhone 12 mini – November 13-14, but the iPhone 12 Pro Max will have to wait until November 20-21.
The column will receive an Apple S5 processor and will cost only $ 99. The speaker will be only 7.6 cm high and will go on sale November 16-17.
What about the headphones and AirTags?
According to data John Prosser, neither the headphones nor the AirTag will be shown on October 13 – we are waiting for the announcement in November, and the tags in March 2021.
AirPods Studio will be the first full-size Apple headphones to feature Active Noise Cancellation, automatic left and right channel detection, USB Type-C charging port, and a $ 349 price tag for the sports version. The premium version in steel and leather costs $ 599.
