To get that $30 instant discount, activation of your new iPhone 12 is required. The elevated new design of the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini are as lovely as they are durable, the company announced. Availability details of the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are yet to be revealed. The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max features 20 hours of video playback, offering five hours longer battery life than the iPhone 12 mini.

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.

It was kind of odd to see that T-Mobile and Sprint customers would have to pay $30 more for the same iPhone 12 than AT&T and Verizon customers, especially after Apple advertised the iPhone 12 as starting at the lower $799 price during its launch event. All of these are powered by the company's new A14 Bionic chipset, which it claims is the fastest mobile chip now available in the market. The iPhone 12 mini is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and eSIM cards.

Xi said in remarks in the backdrop of the over six-month-long military standoff between India and China in eastern Ladakh. Saudi Arabia is hosting the virtual meeting of G-20 leaders on Saturday and Sunday in line with coronavirus restrictions.

Apple surprised analysts on Tuesday evening with the roll-out of its new iPhone 12, especially as regards pricing, which analysts said could entice more consumers to upgrade their terminals. All new models will have 5G support, though their United States versions are said to have antennae for faster, mmWave frequencies. Apart from the iPhone 12 smartphones, Apple is also reported to launch a new HomePod Mini smart speaker or a set of over-the-ear headphones.

At just 3.3 inches tall, HomePod mini is packed with innovative technologies and advanced software that together enable computational audio to deliver breakthrough audio quality wherever it is placed. "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.
