iPhone 12: All You Need to Know (Price, Design, Release Date, Leaks and More)

Sep 2, 2020

You don't need Ned Stark to remind you Winter is Coming, a new iPhone release will do that for you...

Ready for the next batch of iPhones? Apple have big plans for this upcoming release.


Unlike previous years, Apple have promised not three but four new devices this year.

For many, this will come as a surprising move, considering we are in the middle of a global pandemic (but hey, Apple knows best!)

Here, Communicate Better runs through all the rumours surrounding the iPhone 12 launch and answers your burning questions.


How much will the iPhone 12 cost?

The iPhone 12 price is likely to stay broadly in line with 2019's iPhone range.

For reference, the iPhone 11 started at £729, the iPhone 11 Pro starts at £1,049, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at £1,149.

However, there are reports that there may be a price drop (as a result of COVID-19), which is great news for Apple fanatics!


How many iPhone models can we expect?

According to leaks and rumours, there will be four iPhone models this year.

This will include:

  • 5.4-inch iPhone 12
  • 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max
  • 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro
  • 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max

The iPhone 12 and Max are likely to be pitched as “premium mid-range models”, while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be its flagship devices.

All of the four models will feature OLED displays and 5G support.


What will the iPhone 12 look like?

Remember the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5? Yeah, reports suggest that the iPhone 12 range will be inspired by those phones, and there's supposedly even some elements of the iPad Pro 2020 mixed in.

The iPhone 12 is expected to have a flatter metal frame than the iPhone 11 range.

The rear of all four phones is still expected to be made of glass, but the edges will be more squared than the rounded ones on current models.


What colours will the iPhone 12 come in?

There are rumours that Apple will be debuting a navy blue on its top-end models.

iPhone 12 colours

Reports say the Midnight Green colour that debuted on the iPhone 11 Pro sold beyond Apple's expectations, so the tech giant may also decide to keep that or it may be replaced in the lineup by this navy shade.

The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max were available in Space Grey, Silver and Gold alongside Midnight Green. Those shades may remain for the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, but we've yet to hear any firm evidence that those colours will return.

As for the standard phone, we're expecting a similar pastel range to the iPhone 11. That phone is available in Black, Green, Yellow, Purple, Red and White, so you should probably expect some of those colours to return for 2020's device.


iPhone 12 camera: What do I need to know?

A lot of the new iPhone leaks suggest that we're going to see some big changes to the camera on each device.

The main change is likely to be the addition of a LiDAR scanner, just like we've seen on the iPad Pro 2020. This can accurately judge distances and therefore depth, and would allow for improved augmented reality and Portrait mode.

We've heard specific mentions of a LiDAR scanner being included on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max (alongside three lenses), while the basic iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max are said to have two camera lenses and no LiDAR scanner.

There are also expected to be four rear lenses on the iPhone 12 Pro.

Three of the lenses look like those on the iPhone 11 Pro, if perhaps slightly bigger, but the new fourth lens looks like the LiDAR scanner found on the iPad Pro 2020.

A LiDAR scanner then is looking very likely, at least on the Pro models, and we're also quite confident of the lens numbers, given the large amount of leaks.


When will the iPhone 12 be released?

There is no official release date yet for the iPhone 12 launch, however, reports suggest Apple will host the annual launch event in mid-October.

The new phones will be available to pre-order shortly after the event, as per usual.
