The Apple Event Tuesday ended with Apple launching four iPhone 12 devices, all equipped with 5G. The iPhone 12 series includes the iPhone 12, a smaller iPhone 12 Mini and larger iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The new phones will be available for consumers in India starting October 30. Apple also announced HomePod Mini at Rs 9,900.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB models in blue, green, black, white, and PRODUCT(RED), starting at Rs 79,900 and Rs 69,900, respectively. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be available in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB models in graphite, silver, gold, and pacific blue starting at Rs 119,900 and Rs 129,900, respectively.
The new iPhone 12 series has a thinner design that also makes it lighter and smaller. This is despite the 5G antenna. Arun Mathias, Apple’s vice-president of wireless software, said the new 5G has been tested on over 100 carriers across the world, hitting up to 4 gigabits per second download speeds in ideal conditions.
The new phones are powered by Apple’s new A14 Bionic, first seen in the new iPad Air launched last month, and the first to be built on 5nm technology.
