- The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 are available for pre-order in different countries, and some models already sell out in America.

- Prices start at $ 799 for the iPhone 12 with carrier offers and $ 999 for the iPhone 12 Pro.
Apple began selling two iPhone 12 versions online on Friday, following its well-known iPhone launch pattern. The new iPhones go on sale on the first Friday after Apple’s announcement, and they will be sent to buyers ̵
Even in the year of this terrible pandemic, the only thing that does not seem to change is the demand from the iPhone. The iPhone 12 has started selling out within minutes of pre-orders opening, especially the more expensive iPhone 12 Pro version.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 are virtually identical in terms of specifications and features. They have the same design and footprint, and they have the same 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR screen complete with Ceramic Shield glass. The only design differences are the metals, colors and cameras.
The iPhone 12 Pro is heavier thanks to the stainless steel chassis, compared to the iPhone 12’s aluminum frame. Pro also has two additional rear-facing cameras, including the telephoto lens for better digital and optical zoom and the LiDAR scanner for enhanced low-light photography and AR experiences – Apple ProRAW shooting mode and night mode portraits are also just Pro features.
Finally, the iPhone 12 Pro comes with dual base memory, at 128 GB compared to 64 GB. You have to pay at least $ 999 for all the added benefits compared to $ 799 for the 64 GB iPhone 12.
Recent checks on Apple’s pre-order pages show that many iPhone 12 Pro models are sold out, regardless of color, carrier choice or storage. You can still find stock that will be shipped on October 23, or that you can pick up in stores next Friday. But shipping estimates have been extended to anywhere from 5-7 business days to 2-3 weeks for some models.
Many iPhone 12 Pro combinations are possible, considering that we are looking at four color options, five payment options (four carriers as well as unlocked) and three storage sizes. Chances are you can find the desired iPhone 12 Pro version or just settle for one that is still available. If Apple.com has run out of stock, you can also check with your carrier page.
However, getting an iPhone 12 is much easier. We have five color options for this, five transport options and three storage sizes. But many of them are still available for delivery on October 23. It is unclear what the split is between the iPhone 12 and Pro in terms of inventory, and Apple never shares such details. But the iPhone 12 is still expected to be the best-selling model among the four new iPhones.
The other good news is that Sprint and T-Mobile decided to play alongside Apple’s unusual pricing plan for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12. As a result, all four carriers will give you an instant discount of $ 30, so iPhone 12 prices starts at $ 799. Go the unlocked route and you will have to pay $ 30 extra.
Anecdotal evidence from other markets shows that the iPhone 12 is a hot seller. Reports from Taiwan said the other day that the iPhone 12 share for the country’s carriers was sold out in 45 minutes. And then there is this from China:
You should know that the number of reservations for iPhone 12 and 12 Pro in JD exceeds 1.3 million units
