During a virtual event Tuesday, Apple announced its lineup of iPhone 12 phones after a month-long postponement due to the coronavirus pandemic. There are four new devices altogether: the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. With the various memory configurations, the phones range from $729 (£699, AU$1,199) to as much as $1,399 (£1,399, AU$2,369) off-contract, but all models have 5G connectivity, the A14 Bionic chip and multiple rear cameras.

The iPhone 12 has a dual lens 12MP camera system and 4K video recording. It can support 2x optical zoom and 5x digital, meaning less blur from far away.
The Samsung S20 also has a 12 MP dual lens and 4K video, but only offers 1.1x optical zoom and 3x digital. Both boast improved night mode and camera stabilising software, which will make your photos look professional even in the most photographer-unfriendly settings.

The company has historically released new phones in September, but amid the COVID-19 outbreak, suppliers in China were forced to shut down or dial back operations. The tech giant confirmed there would be a delay on its flagship phones over the summer.
What do we know about the new phones? Will there be enough new features to warrant upgrading from the
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 12 next week but details supposedly spilling the beans on the tech giant’s forthcoming first-ever 5G phones have emerged on social media.
A user on China’s Weibo with the handle “Kang” on Friday posted info allegedly revealing pricing and specifications for four new Apple smartphones — the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini — as well as a new cheaper HomePod mini smart speaker, as spotted by MacRumors.
The caveat: The info is unconfirmed and may not fully square with what Apple actually announces at its launch event, slated for Oct. 13. It’s not clear how Kang came by the details. That said, according to AppleTrack, whoever Kang is has a good track record of predicting Apple announcements, including accurately reporting several of the company’s announcements from this year’s WWDC and the new iPad Air model

Apple’s next flagship is on the brink of launching, with the iPhone 12 event set for Tuesday, October 13. We’re in for some big changes compared to last year’s iPhone 11, with the biggest being the design, the SoC, and connectivity.
The arrival of the Xbox Series X is mere weeks away, with Microsoft’s next-generation console arriving alongside the Xbox Series S on November 10.
