Apple's iPhone 12 was unveiled yesterday, but some people in the wider community were left wanting more - finding the lack of headphones or adapter disappointing, according to severaltweets.

Of them, Apple said the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro will go on sale in South Korea on October 30, one week after the company launches the products in select countries, including the United States, Britain, Germany, China and Japan.

Apple said the iPhone 12 will be sold with a price tag starting from 1.09 million won ($950) here, and the iPhone 12 Mini from 950,000 won. Belkin swears your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro will be safely mounted through all the road's bumps and turns.

There were conflicting rumours about the cost of the iPhone 12 range prior to its announcement, with some suggesting it'd be cheaper while others claimed it'd be more expensive thanks to the inclusion of 5G.

Today's event brought a grand total of four new iPhone models, ranging in price from $699 to $1,099: the 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.

The iPhone 12 models are powered by Apple's A14 Bionic processor, the first chip in the smartphone industry manufactured on the 5-nanometer process.

The broker also highlighted that demand from China is the "linchpin to Apple's 5G supercycle", estimating that roughly 20% of iPhone upgrades will come from the region in the coming year.

You can pre-order the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro directly from Apple from 1pm BST/5am PDT/1pm AEDT on Friday, 16 October.

Let's not forget the A14 Bionic, which Apple is calling the fastest chipset in any smartphone right now, with boosts to CPU, GPU and Neural Engine performance and, of course, 5G connectivity is standard across the entire range. There's also the iPhone 12 Mini, with a 5.4in display in the same form factor as the original 4.7in iPhone SE.

The iPhone 12 Pro models also feature a new LiDAR scanner to deliver better augmented reality experiences to consumers.
