  • Apple announced four iPhone 12 phones during its virtual event on Wednesday, including the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
  • Apple also kept in its 2020 iPhone lineup the iPhone XR and iPhone 11, discontinuing the iPhone 11 Pro versions.
  • Apple will sell 20 different iPhone versions until the iPhone 13 series launches, starting at $399 and going all the way up to $1,399.

Apple’s four iPhone 12 phones are finally official, and they’ll all be available for purchase by mid-November. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be available for preorder this week, with the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max coming in the first week of November. Pricing starts at $699, but only if you’re getting a carrier deal from AT&T or Verizon. Many people will pay the full US price, which starts at $729 for the mini. The same extra $30 applies to the iPhone 12, and this price inconsistency only affects the US versions of the iPhone 12 mini and regular iPhone 12.

In addition to the iPhone 12 series, Apple will sell the iPhone SE that was launched earlier this year and last year’s iPhone 11. But the iPhone XR will also stay in Apple’s inventory for one more year, with the price dropping to $499. In total, you get to choose from a variety of iPhone models this fall, with prices starting at $399 and going all the way up to $1,399. Unlike other years, all iPhones will now ship without chargers and EarPods in the box, but that’s not going to be a problem for most buyers, who already own various chargers.

Here’s every iPhone model that Apple will sell during the following year, from the $399 64GB iPhone SE all the way up to the $1,399 512GB iPhone 12 Pro Max.
