Apple‘s iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini will be available for preorder starting Friday, November 6 at 5 a.m. PST/8 a.m. EST. Both models will deliver the most 5G bands on any smartphone and introduce MagSafe, which offers wireless charging and a host of new accessories that can now easily attach to the iPhone.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max offers the largest and highest resolution display ever on an iPhone at 6.7 inches diagonally and nearly 3.5 million pixels — all while maintaining nearly identical physical dimensions to the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The flat-edge design pairs surgical grade stainless steel with a matte glass back available in graphite, silver, gold and pacific blue finishes. It’s also built to be tough; the iPhone 12 Pro Max can withstand water submersion up to 6 meters for up to 30 minutes, and the all-new Ceramic Shield front cover provides the biggest improvement in durability ever for an iPhone: a 4x increase in drop performance.
To top it off, the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera system is the most advanced ever featured in an iPhone, thanks to its Ultra Wide camera which offers a 120-degree field of view and its 65 mm focal length Telephoto camera. Expect major improvements to low-light performance, autofocus and AR experiences.
The iPhone 12 mini — the smallest, thinnest and lightest 5G smartphone in the world — punches well above its weight, with an immersive edge-to-edge Super Retina XDR display and all the iPhone 12 technology packed within its compact frame. Available in blue, green, black, white and (PRODUCT)RED finishes, the iPhone 12 mini also features the Ceramic Shield front cover and top-of-the-line IP68 water resistance. Its dual-camera system will deliver a 27 percent improvement for low-light photos and videos and supports HDR video capture with Dolby Vision at 4K up to 30 fps.
The HomePod mini will also be available tomorrow morning for $99 USD. The cost-effective smart speaker features Siri integration which can recognize who is speaking to tailor music and podcasts to their preferences and deliver on personalized demands.
Preorder the iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 mini and HomePod mini on Friday morning via Apple’s website, the Apple Store app, as well as authorized retailers and select carriers. Both smartphones will be available in stores and begin arriving to customers on November 13, and the HomePod mini will be in store and arriving to doorsteps starting November 16.
Apple also has its recently announced “One More Thing” event coming up next week on November 10, which is expected to reveal its silicon-power Macs.
