iPhone 12 release date, price and specifications

We found the latest rumors about the new iPhone 12 for autumn 2020, the features, design changes and tech specs you can expect when the device is finally released (but now officially delayed)

There are several best iPhone models available, such as the flagship iPhone 11 Pro, the more affordable iPhone 11, and the compact iPhone SE (2020), but if you’re thinking of advancing to any of them, you might want to hold off.

Until and unless your recent phone is entirely broken, it’s worth waiting a little longer, even if your present mobile is old, exhausted, or bored of it and due to an upgrade. 


  • The company has hired approximately 2500 employees, and they will start functioning from its plant in Narasapura in Karnataka.
  • Apple manufacturer Wistron will hire 10,000 employees for the local production of iPhone 12.
  • The local production of iPhone SE is also targeted to start at the end of this year.

The reason you should wait for iPhone 12 

1. The phone is expected to launch soon with amazing features 

iPhone 12 is expected to launch this September or October 2020. Buying an existing iPhone model rather than one of the iPhone12 ranges also ensures you will miss out on new technology, features, and improvements. The iPhone12 is certainly going to support 5G, which no existing iPhone does, and which will make the new phones much more future-proofed.

Rumors suggest the 6.7-inch iPhone and one 6.1-inch model will be higher-end devices with triple-lens cameras, while the 5.4 and 6.1-inch models will be lower-end iPhones dual-lens cameras and a more affordable price tag. 

2. iPhone 12 Price

The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will start at $699 for 64GB. The 6.1-inch iPhone12 Max has a $799 price for the same amount of storage. However, it’s likely that the pricing could be cheaper if Apple decided to sell 4G LTE-only versions.

The above pricing would be for 5G models of the iPhone12. The iPhone12 Pro, which would have three rear cameras plus a LiDAR sensor, may start at a price of $999 or $1,049. The iPhone12 Pro could also characterize a 120Hz ProMotion display, but that’s not a lock quite yet.

3. Design Changes

We are starting to get a good idea of what the iPhone12 will look like, as several disclosure and rumors unite towards a single point of agreement. The iPhone12’s exterior design is expected to be the major refurbish to the phone’s looks since 2017. That’s why it is chiefly stimulating and exciting to see all the rumors we’ve heard so far extract into a real-life model.

The front notch, which includes the selfie camera and Face ID sensors, remains in place. However, it seems like the sides have been trimmed down, giving users a pretty more display space. 

4. Battery Life and Charging

Apple isn’t famous for stuffing the most significant batteries potential inside its phones. The iPhone 11 reportedly has a 3,100 mAh battery, while the iPhone 11 Pro has a 3,046 mAh battery.

4. Battery Life and Charging

The iPhone 11 Pro Max steps up to a 3,969 mAh battery. One report says that the iPhone12 Pro could get a 4,400 mAh battery, which would be a nice upgrade. The best news is that the iPhone 12 may support 20W charging, based on reports, which would be even better than the 18W charging for the iPhone 11 lineup. 

5. We can expect more choices than ever.

Apple is powerfully rumored to be launching four iPhone12 models when generally we only get three new phones. This measures some new sizes, comprising reportedly a 5.4-inch basic iPhone12, which may be ideal for anyone who desires a compact model with higher-end specs than the iPhone SE (2020).

Watch the FULL video for the details, but the highlights include:

  • Bezels that are 0.9mm thinner than on the 11 Pro Max
  • Larger screen: 6.7in, compared to 6.5in
  • Lighter chassis: 7.4mm, compared to 8.1mm
  • Much smaller notch
  • LiDAR sensor forms the fourth element in a square camera array

For the first time, there may be four iPhone 12 models in three different screen sizes: a 5.4-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone12 Max, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset will power all four new iPhones.

More new Features

A new iPhone demands a flagship feature – something an announcement event can build around. In 2019 it was all about the cameras (triple lenses and night mode). In 2020 we think it will be 5G if Apple can drag it off in time.

3D camera

Launch of an iPhone 12 with a more robust 3D camera, as part of Apple’s continuing push into AR. Now it seems likelier than ever.

Current iPhones already feature a 3D camera, used for Face ID facial recognition, making it harder to market beat this as a breakthrough or flagship feature. It could range around 15 feet, the site predicts, compared to just 25-50cm on the iPhone X series and iPhone 11. It will use to scan the environment, whereas current 3D scanning is deployed on the user’s face…

Touch ID

iPhone 12 To offer Touch ID on the screen, Apple would need to fix the sensor somewhere other than in the Home button. We’re reaching the stage of technological development where this is becoming logistically achievable.

A few exciting but the potentially more practical option would embed the fingerprint sensor in the power/side button, a method used in Samsung’s Galaxy S10e. Sure enough, in a late-January report, Company BOD Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would launch a lower-cost iPhone with power-button Touch ID in the first quarter of 2021.


Android phone manufacturers have been broadly offering 5G since before the iPhone 11 launched; in fact, Apple is out of in this department. Why the delay?

The problem is manufacturers to supply the modems. Apple used to partner with Qualcomm, but the two firms had a significant falling-out over limitations; later, a relationship was set up with Intel, but that company has already quit the 5G platform… and sold most of its smartphone modem to Apple.
So Apple could now make its own modems, but that won’t be possible until 2021. In the meantime, deals accepted with other suppliers (or Qualcomm again, since contractual matters have been solved) are on track for a 5G launch.

Apple has a potential reason for late entry because the 5G party to do the thing that works properly. There are multiple versions of the technology, and the one everyone wants – referred to as millimeter wave, or mmWave – isn’t widely available yet. Most people are offering a mid-band version of 5G, operating at sub-6GHz frequencies, and this is slower than mmWave (although still a lot faster than 4G).

What can you get in Box?

Apple has package pretty much the same collection of accessories and paperwork with every iPhone since 2007. But there is evidence that this year will be different. 

Firstly, about the EarPods we’ve been taking for granted. Back in May, the respected pundit Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple might ship the iPhone 12 with no headphones. A second analyst, Dan Ives, backed up the theory in June.

But things did not stop there. The theory now is that we won’t get headphones or a charger. Apple’s being doing surveys asking people whether they have their old charges and whether they still work or not.  

If Apple does strip out these two old faithful accessories from the iPhone 12 box, there will be a lot of unhappy campers in Apple world. But there are good reasons why it makes sense: as the survey will probably make clear, plenty of us still have one, two or even more old sets of accessories from preceding years’ iPhone purchases, and which we don’t use anymore because of duplication or repetition or because we’ve bought better alternatives.

In conclusion, then, here’s what we think will be in the iPhone 12 box:

  • iPhone 12
  • Braided Lightning-to-USB-C cable (in white and black finishes)
  • Some stickers

         …and that’s it..


Should I buy the iPhone 11 or wait for iPhone 12?

You should wait for the iPhone 12. When the phone is launched, and you think that Apple didn’t do a massive upgrade from 11 to 12, you can buy the iPhone 11 as it is one of the best phones in the market. And if you think the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 have enormous differences, you can go for the iPhone 12.

What will the iPhone 12 have?


  • Four iPhones.
  • New physical design.
  • 5.4″, 6.7″, and 6.1″ sizes.
  • Triple-lens 3D camera.
  • All OLED displays.
  • 5G connectivity.
  • A14 chip.
  • $649 starting price.

Is the iPhone 12 Waterproof?

All the current phone launched by Apple starting from iPhone 7 is waterproof. Then I can assure you that this phone will also be waterproof. 


I would recommend it if you wait for this phone because it is going to be very advanced and upgraded. Plus, it would not cost so much if you are an iPhone user.
