On Tuesday, Apple introduced the new iPhone 12 family, with the largest range of screen sizes ever offered in an iPhone family. The iPhone 12 mini has a relatively small 5.4-inch screen, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max offers the largest iPhone screen ever at 6.7-inch. Apple also introduced the meat and potatoes iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro with 6.1-inch screens.
Gene Munster and David Stokman for Loup Ventures:
Most notable in the new iPhone series was the iPhone 12 mini, which hits the optimal $ 699 price point along with a form factor that iPhone users have been waiting for. This is the first time in seven years, since the iPhone 5S, that a smaller form factor iPhone is part of the flagship.
In addition, iPhone 12 Pro models now have slightly larger screens in the same form factor as the iPhone 11 Pro, which means that fans of larger screens will have a reason to upgrade.
We believe that the number of iPhones that are three years or older has increased by 90 meters units in the last year, which gives a tailwind for iPhone demand in the coming year. We are still comfortable with our 15% growth estimates for iPhone devices (in line with Street) for FY21, which will be an increase from 1% in FY20.
MacDailyNews Take: Those who want the world’s fastest smartphones with the best camera systems available on the market now have a wide range of iPhone screen sizes to choose from, which definitely increases the appeal to a wider audience than ever before!
