When Apple launched the iPhone 12 family last year, the company revealed the usual suspects: a 6.1-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, the company also brought along a fourth member of the family: the iPhone 12 mini with a small (in this day and age) 5.4-inch display. Apple designed the phone to appease to smartphone users who have long cried out for a device that offered flagship performance, but was more pocketable like the 4-inch iPhone SE from many moons ago. The iPhone 12 mini still stands pretty much in a class of one when it comes to a modern smartphone with flagship performance and features across-the-board in such a small form-factor.... Read more...
The hits just keep coming for those that have bought a new iPhone 12 and are looking to tap into Apple's growing MagSafe accessory ecosystem. The company has just now confirmed that its 29W chargers, which were still on sale as recently as two years ago, are insufficient for charging two devices with the new MagSafe Duo wireless charger (which can charge an iPhone 12 and Apple Watch simultaneously). Before we even get into the latest charging fiasco with the MagSafe Duo, we must first tackle the absurdity of the notion that this wireless charger doesn't even come with a wall power adapter. A wall adapter is necessary for the product to work, and at $129, you would think that Apple would include... Read more...
Apple's 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini is expected to be a hot seller once preorders open up on Friday morning. The smartphone will be priced from $699, which is $100 less than the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 that it is most closely aligned with. However, it appears that the iPhone 12 mini has some other compromises tossed in (besides its smaller display and battery), including its MagSafe charging abilities. It has just been revealed in a recently updated support document that in addition to the already convoluted wall adapter requirements necessary to get maximum power from an official MagSafe charger, that the iPhone 12 mini is limited to wireless charging at 12W. This is a 3W drop from the 15W maximum... Read more...
When Apple announced its iPhone 12 family early last week, the iPhone 12 Pro Max was no doubt the most feature-filled and impressive model on display. The smartphone features a massive 6.7-inch OLED display, triple rear cameras (including sensor shift optical image stabilization for the wide-angle lens), and a LIDAR sensor among other enhancements. However, equally as important was the new iPhone 12 mini, which reverses a trend that has become commonplace in today's smartphones. Smartphones today seem to have at least a 6-inch display, with most measuring in at 6.4 to 6.7 inches in size. Smartphone OEMs claim that most people want larger screens for gaming, watching movies, and looking... Read more...
Apple seems to be rubbing a lot of people the wrong way with its iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro family that was announced this afternoon. While there are kudos all around for standard 5G connectivity, the faster A14 Bionic SoC, and improved cameras, Apple also took the USB-C wall charger and EarPods out of the box. And now, Apple is sure to leave many people scratching their heads with the revelation that it is essentially placing an additional $30 fee on top of the MSRP for certain models of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. Apple announced that the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini will start at $699 in the 64GB configuration, while the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be priced at $799 for the same amount... Read more...
After months of leaks and speculation, Apple iPhone 12 family has finally been officially announced. Given how much ink has been spilled about the smartphones up to this point, most of you should already be pretty familiar with Apple has to offer. As in previous years, the iPhone 12 lineup is being split into two distinct families: the mainstream iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12, along with the flagship iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12  These are the entry-level models in the new smartphone family, and they are both powered by Apple’s new A14 Bionic SoC.

Apple announced earlier this week that it will be revealing its iPhone 12 family on Tuesday, October 13th. The new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models are arriving later in the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are highly anticipated among the Apple faithful. Apple leaker Kang, who has a generally reliable track record when it comes to leaks, is giving us a final rundown of details for the upcoming smartphone family including pricing ahead of the official reveal. There aren't many surprises here compared to previous leaks, but we do get some revised pricing details for the cheapest member of the family: the iPhone 12 mini. iPhone 12 mini  5.4-inch OLED display A14...

It looks as though we finally have a date for Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 keynote: October 13th. For those that have followed Apple's history of iPhone announcements, this upcoming virtual event is arriving roughly a month later than usual. As you might expect, we can blame the COVID-19 pandemic for disrupting global supply chains, which delayed production. Apple isn't giving many hints with its invite, other than to say "Hi, Speed". We take this to mean the new A14 Bionic SoC, which was first introduced with the 4th generation iPad Air. According to benchmarks that leaked over the weekend, the A14 Bionic offers roughly a 20 percent uplift in performance over the A13 Bionic in the iPhone... Read more...
We’re still awaiting invites to be sent out for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro virtual keynote address. The phones are expected to be announced sometime this month (with availability in November), but Apple is being tight-lipped about the exact reveal date. In the meantime, we have to rely on leaks to give us some insight into what Apple is planning, and the latest one seems highly plausible. The leak pertains to pricing for the entire lineup starting with the iPhone 12 mini and topping out with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. According to the leaker, @a_rumors1111, here’s how the full stack will play out: iPhone 12 mini  64GB $649 128GB $699 256GB $799 iPhone... Read more...
The latest rumor making the rounds about Apple iPhone 12 lineup involves the naming strategy for the smartphones. Earlier this week, reputable Apple leaker L0vetodream alleged that Apple's smallest iPhone will not be called the iPhone 12 as previously rumored. Instead, he claimed that the device would be called the iPhone 12 mini. If this is indeed the case, that would mean that Apple would introduce an iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. This is a similar strategy to the company's iPad lineup which includes the iPad mini, iPad, and iPad Pro (along with the iPad Air). Further confirmation of L0vetodream's claims came today from Twitter user DuanRui, who posted... Read more...
