Apple concluded the iPhone 12 launch successfully. The smartphone giant revealed HomePod Mini and the AirPods Studio at the event. But the iPhone 12 series was the headliner of the show.
As we heard the rumors, Apple proved them true and launched four different models. For starters, we have iPhone 12 Mini, and then it goes up to iPhone 12 Pro Max with iPhone 12 and Pro in-between. Thanks to Apple’s online store, India can have iPhone 12 with global availability. The series contains 5G equipped iPhones this year.
As the festive season is approaching India, Apple is all set to make these iPhones available before the holidays. And also, iPhone 12 will be available on popular eCommerce websites such as Flipkart and Amazon.
The smaller version of Apple HomePad was launched in the event, HomePod Mini. The smart device is designed with mesh fabric. HomePod Mini also has illumination as its one of the properties, which works when you try to interact with Siri, the built-in voice assistant.
From the words of Apple, the smart speaker will function as the “brain of your smart home”. But will give priority to your security and privacy. HomePod Mini comes with some upgrades and allows Siri to recognize the voice of not just you but of your family members too. With the intercom feature, you can send a message from one HomePod to another, to iPhones, iPads, Car Play, Apple Watches, and AirPods too.
The full-range dynamic driver in the HomePod Mini is aimed down to propagate sound in all directions with an acoustic waveguide. The manufacturer has said that it will bring a UI chip that will allow using the ‘handoff’ feature, where switching of audio will be possible between devices.
HomePod Mini will be available from starting 6th November at a price of 9,900 INR in India. To pre-order this smart speaker for your home, you can visit Apple.com.
iPhone 12 Mini
Another Mini that stole the limelight in the event is the iPhone 12 Mini and is considered the smallest, lightest, and thinnest 5G smartphone in the world.
iPhone 12 Mini has been designed just like the iPhone 12 with flat edges, a square rear camera setup, an aluminum frame, and a big notch in the middle of the screen, but is smaller than even iPhone 8. With 5.4” Super Retina XDR Display, the iPhone consists of 2340×1080 resolution and 1200 nits brightness (maximum).
The camera setup has a 12 MP primary and 12 MP ultra-wide sensor which is again the same as the screen of the iPhone 12. 4k recording at 60 fps is an add-on to this little beast’s specs.
Just like HomePod Mini, iPhone 12 Mini will be available in India by 6th November, and the price starts at 69,900 INR and has other variants with 74,900 INR and 84,900 INR. To pre-order the iPhone 12 Mini, you can visit Apple.com.
With an A14 Bionic Hexa-core chip inside, the iPhone 12 flaunts a 6.1” Super Retina OLED XDR Display. The smartphone is designed to support wireless and fast charging. It runs on the latest iOS 14 and features Sub-6GHz 5G technology.
The rear camera setup of the iPhone 12 consists of two sensors and each one has a capacity of recording videos at 4k 60fps. The first one is a 12 MP wide camera (f/1.6 aperture) and the second one is a 12 MP ultra-wide shooter (f/2.4) with a field of video of 120 degrees.
iPhone 12 has been designed with a big focus on computational photography, including Smart HDR 3 and Night Mode enhancement to improve your low-light photographs.
Unlike Minis, iPhone 12 will be available from 16th October for 79,900 INR, 84,900 INR, and 94,900 INR in India. To pre-order this latest iPhone, you can visit Apple.com.
iPhone 12 Pro
The design and structure of the iPhone 12 Pro have remained similar to its predecessor. But, this one flaunts a bigger 6.1” display in the same configuration. With 5G connectivity, iPhone 12 Pro is IP68 water-resistant too.
The rear camera setup has got an update and has three cameras that can record 4k Dolby Vision HDR video, that too in 60 fps. The phone also allows you to edit the videos. It also consists of ProRAW shooting mode, making this one a boon for the professionals.
iPhone 12 Pro will be available from 30th October in India, that again is before the festive season. For this one, the price goes beyond 1 lac and starts at 1,19,900 INR, 1,29,900 INR, and goes to 1,49,900 INR. To pre-order this one as well, you can visit Apple.com.

iPhone 12 Pro Max has a LiDAR sensor as a fourth camera to advance the depth mapping. The device’s optical zoom has been scaled to 4 times.
