Historically, Apple usually unveils the iPhone during the second week of September and then releases it 10 days after. However, due to the virus, it is unlikely that you’ll be able to get your hands on the latest iPhone during September.
According to a report in the Wallstreet Journal, the iPhone 12’s production has been delayed for a month so a better estimate regarding the launch date is late October or November.
Unlike the release date, the price is something that we can be fairly certain about. Following the line of the iPhone 11, the starting price of the iPhone 12 is likely going to be $700.
As there are four models that are going to be dropped – iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, we have created an easily readable price table below.
||iPhone 12 Max
||iPhone 12 Pro
||iPhone 12 Max Pro
|$649 / $749
||$749 / $849

Features of the iPhone 12
The upcoming iPhone 12 is packed with a number of changes and improvements. Apple certainly is taking steps to further advance mobile technology by introducing revolutionary changes to aspiring fans and potential customers looking to have their hands on this gadget.
The iPhone is rumored to be going back to the past to present us with the future. Which will feature sharp edges and a boxy build that brings an exciting change to the old and boring soft edges.
Moreover, each release model will come with a different screen size. The latest information reveals the screen size for each iPhone models:
- iPhone 12 will have a 5.4-inch display.
- iPhone 12 Max will have a 6.1-inch display
- iPhone 12 Pro will have a 6.1-inch display
- iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a 6.7-inch display
Apple is trying to appease the various income segments by providing them with a larger screen at a lower price in the shape of Max.
We will see a glass back, stainless steel edges, and the famous notch at the top of the screen. And according to some analysts, on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, there might not be a notch at all.
The front-facing camera will be underneath the screen and thus face-id will have to be replaced with an under-the-screen fingerprint scanner.
This seems like a far too “bold” move from Apple but it wouldn’t be the first time they did something out of the ordinary.
With the launch of the iPhone 11, we witnessed a midnight green color that surpassed ours and Apple’s expectations alike.
Due to its popularity, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max might come in midnight green but what we’re most excited about is the Navy Blue colorway that is on its way.
The renders have shown just how good Navy Blue looks and we can’t wait to see it in our hands. Here is a list of the colorways expected of the four models:
- iPhone 12 & 12 Max: Black, Green, Yellow, Purple, Red and White.
- iPhone 12 Pro & 12 Pro Max: Space Gray, Sliver, Gold, Midnight Green and Navy Blue.
Screen Refresh Rate
One of the big rumor surrounding the iPhone 12 is the move to a 120Hz refresh rate from 60Hz. What this means is that scrolling becomes seamless and smoother. The previous iPhones have sported the 60Hz refresh rate so this will significantly improve the screen performance.
Most of the other phones in the market have already moved to the 120Hz such as S20 and OnePlus 8 Pro – so this rumor is probably highly likely.
The next major thing that’s revolving in technology right now is 6GHz and each smartphone is preparing themselves to become compatible with it. Rumors is to be said that all 4 models of the iPhone 12 will feature sub-6GHz. Both 12 Pro and Max Pro will be equipped with millimetre wave feature.
This is a huge win for the consumers who wants to be able to experience better online surfing experience with minimal latency and get things done entirely on their smartphone. 6GHz is the future of Wi-Fi, out with the old and in with the new.
There is a sea of rumors surrounding the camera in the latest iPhone 12 leaks and we’ll tell you the most likely ones.
The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are reported to have 3 lenses with a built-in LIDAR scanner. While the iPhone 12 and 12 Max reportedly have 2 lenses and no LIDAR scanner.
What the LIDAR scanner essentially does is that it is able to judge depths accurately giving you better pictures in the Portrait mode.
Furthermore, another rumor is that the iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a feature called “sensor-shift” which will allow the sensor to move if the camera shakes. The iPhone 12 will also have improved zoom from 2x to 3x.
While nothing is confirmed as of yet, these rumors are enough to get us into the latest iPhone spirit. As time goes by, we will have more news for you and therefore make sure to bookmark this page for all the latest iPhone 12 leaks.
