Apple unveils four iPhone 12 models with 5G speed starting at $699


The iPhone 11 is officially old.

On Tuesday, Apple announced the latest edition of their iconic smartphone, the iPhone 12, reported CNET.

"Today is the beginning of a new era for iPhone," Apple CEO Tim Cook said at the virtual event.

The iPhone 12 comes with super-fast 5G wireless technology and will move from  LCD screen to OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screen. The screen still retains the 6.1-inch display size found on the iPhone 11 and iPhone XR.

Featuring an aluminium frame, the iPhone 12 comes in five colors: black, white, blue, red, and green.

According to the outlet, the 12 is “is 11% thinner, 15% smaller and 16% lighter than” the iPhone 11.

The iPhone 12 will start at $799 with storage options ranging between 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

In addition to the standard iPhone 12, the tech giant also announced three other versions: iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Max. While all will feature 5G technology, the 12 Max features a 6.7-inch display that the company said was the largest iPhone screen to date, according to CNBC.

The iPhone 12 Mini starts at $699, the iPhone 12 Pro at $999 and the iPhone 12 Max at $1099.

Preorders for the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro begin this Friday and will be available starting October 23. The Mini and the 12 Max will start preorders on November 6th and be available on November 13th.

Unfortunately, all four versions of the 12 will come without the previously standard free 18W power adapter or complementary pair of earbuds. Apple cited environmental reasons as to why they decided to exclude them in each shipment.
