Apple announced the iPhone 12, HomePod Mini and more

October 15, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

CNN Underscored is covering everything you need to know about Apple's "Hi, Speed" event.

And we officially have four new iPhones: iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. All support 5G, are powered by the A14 Bionic processor and feature camera improvements.

The $699 iPhone 12 mini and $1,099 iPhone 12 Pro Max will go up for order on November 6, with deliveries starting on November 13.

Apple seems quite bullish about 5G on the iPhones, noting that it will bring big new features to you, the end-user.

And Apple has been partnering with Verizon on 5G, claiming the new iPhone will support Ultra Wideband.

Apple has been working with Corning for new material on the iPhone 12, which Apple has dubbed Ceramic Shield and claimed is tougher than the glass on any other smartphone.

And what’s most exciting to us is the new chip inside the iPhone 12: A14 Bionic, an Apple-made Silicon chip built on the 5-nanometer standard, is the same processor powering the iPad Air. There are 11. 8 billion transistors inside this chip, an increase of 40% over the A13.

Apple specifically called out that League of Legends: Wild Rift will be arriving on the iPhone, and A14 will be making it possible — along with a shoutout to Verizon for 5G to allow gaming from anywhere.

The iPhone 12 Mini is real and it has a 5. 4-inch display that makes it smaller than the iPhone SE.

So, really, it’s the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Both adopt this new flatter design, with a shiny machine-milled stainless steel edge and three cameras on the back.

As expected, after it debuted on the iPad Pro 2020, LiDAR is coming to the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. You’ll be able to precisely scan rooms, take full advantage of augmented reality (AR) and improve photos.

Preorders for the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro start this Friday and launch on October 23.

Preorders for the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini start on November 6 with a launch date of November 13.

We’re hoping HomePod Mini can also pair with the original HomePod. Apple also noted that later this year you’ll be able to seamlessly hand off from your iPhone to the mini speaker by just holding your phone near it.

You can still cast directly from your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac or Apple TV via the AirPlay 2 standard (essentially, Apple’s technology for streaming music from your iPhone).

And it goes a step beyond, also working with iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and CarPlay.

Well, Apple is bringing MagSafe to the iPhone in the form of magnets being built into the wireless charger coil.

Apple has a combination MagSafe Duo Charger that combines an iPhone charger with an Apple Watch charger.

It also won’t cost you nearly as much at the $249. 95 Powerbeats Pro. Introducing the Beats Flex, a $50 pair of Bluetooth earbuds (note the cord connecting the two) that features Apple’s W1 chip for fast pairing.

Beats Flex will be great to pair with iPhone 12 Mini, 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, as they don’t ship with earbuds in the box.
