Apple’s iPhone 12 is approaching, and although recent leaks have revealed disappointing design decisions, a huge upgrade has now been revealed.
Apple’s prolific adviser John Prosser has confirmed that Apple will double the entry-level storage capacity of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max to 128 GB, which addresses the much-criticized 64 GB starting point in the iPhone 11 Pro models. But not everything is good news.
While the iPhone 12 Pro models will receive this (long-awaited) storage boom, Prosser says that the all-new iPhone 12 mini (“Definitely the Final Marketing Name”) and iPhone 12 will be left with 64 GB of storage. They will also have the same 64/128 / 256GB upgrade options as the iPhone 11 models, missing the 512GB top level available for the iPhone 12 Pro models.
In addition, Prosser reiterated that Apple will announce the new iPhones on October 13, while “Apple’s first shipment of iPhone 12 terminal devices will be released to distributors on October 5.” Given Prosser’s high success rate in Apple’s launch in 2020, and the almost consensus among levers around that date, you need to add it to your calendar.
Will the big jump in storage excitement in Apple’s new iPhone? This is a good (perhaps vital) move after the revelations that the iPhone 12 will have smaller batteries, retain its large display and potentially treat only the iPhone 12 Pro Max as a “true flagship” with the smaller iPhone 12 Pro, which will skip camera upgrades and 5G of the highest layer.
Of course, Apple fans will have a new angular chassis design to look forward to, as well as relatively small price increases compared to other 5G iPhones. But for my money, the real star of the show will be the iPhone, which Apple will release only early next year.
