Apple unveiled its new iPhone, the first with 5G, along with a new HomePod Mini device at the long-awaited event on Tuesday.
Apple’s first product discovery was the new HomePod Mini, a smaller version of the company’s smart speaker that competes with the Amazon Echo. HomePod Mini has iPhone integration; has “calculation sound”; and recognizes multiple voices. It airs the week of November 16 and sells for $ 99.
Next up was the iPhone. “Today marks the beginning of a new era for the iPhone,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook, highlighting new 5G features and benefits such as faster speeds and lower latency. Cook invited Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg on stage to talk about the benefits of the operator’s 5G network, which is available nationwide today.
Apple showed up then the new iPhone 12, the first iPhone with 5G, from $ 799.
The new device comes with an aluminum frame with flat edges, similar to the iPhone 4 design, and comes in black, white, green, blue and red. It is 11% thinner; 15% less; and 16% lighter than the iPhone 11. It is a dual camera system with a 12 megapixel wide camera, a new A14 Bionic chip, and is designed to use 5G only when needed to save battery life. It has a 6.1-inch screen that comes with “Ceramic Shield” which is “tougher than any smartphone glass.” Apple put MagSafe on the back of the phone to attach to wireless chargers.
Apple unveiled next time iPhone 12 mini, which has a 5.4-inch screen and starts at $ 699. It has all the features of iPhone 12.
Then came iPhone 12 Pro devices. The iPhone 12 Pro starts at $ 999, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max at $ 1,099.
The iPhone 12 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen, the largest ever for an Apple phone. They come in gold, graphite, blue and silver. Pro comes with advanced camera features and other enhanced specifications such as LIDAR technology for augmented reality apps. It also has a stainless steel design, against aluminum on the iPhone 12.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are available for pre-order on October 16, and shipping on October 23. iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max pre-orders start November 6th and ship November 13th.
