Apple Launches Iphone 12 Series With 5G Support

Connectivity options on the iPhone 12 mini include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/Yes, GPS, Bluetooth v5.00, NFC, Lightning, 3G, and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). The iPhone 12 series is said to be powered by Apple's A14 Bionic chip and will run on iOS 14. Availability details of the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are yet to be revealed. The company will host a virtual launch from its Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California, which will possibly see Apple bring four new iPhone 12 models.

Since it's the smallest iPhone Apple sells, it's also the iPhone 12 model with the lowest battery life, coming in at 15 hours of video playback compared to the iPhone 12's 17 hours.

The entry-level iPhone 12 may come with 64GB storage in a total of six colours including black, white, blue, red, yellow as well as coral. The iPhone 12 mini is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and eSIM cards.

iPhone 12 models also introduce MagSafe, offering high-powered wireless charging and an all-new ecosystem of accessories that easily attach to the iPhone.

Models in the USA support millimeter wave, the higher frequency version of 5G, allowing the iPhone 12 to reach speeds up to 4Gbps, even in densely populated areas. At its "Hi, Speed" event, the Tim Cook-led tech giant is expected to unveil new models of Apple iPhone, its first over-the-ear headphones, a new affordable smart speaker and more.

T-Mobile and Sprint customers buying an iPhone 12 from Apple can also get an additional $150 of trade-in credit from the carriers. "It works effortlessly with iPhone to hand off the music, answer calls, or deliver personalized listening suggestions, elevates the sound from Apple TV, plays music from a Mac, and so much more", said Bob Borchers, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
