The iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are now available to pre-order in the UK after a month-long wait following their unveiling at Apple’s ‘Hi, Speed’ event in October.

Apple is hoping to kick off a ‘super cycle’ of upgrades with its new handsets as all four models in the iPhone 12 line-up will support ultrafast 5G for the first time.

“The arrival of 5G marks the beginning of a new era for iPhone and we’re thrilled to bring these impressive new capabilities to our customers,” Apple’s senior VP Greg Joswiak said.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro went on sale last month, and now it’s the turn of two models that are completely new for this year.

The iPhone 12 Mini is similar in size to the older iPhone SE, with a 5.4-inch OLED display, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max houses the largest ever screen in an iPhone at 6.7 inches.

The Mini is the most affordable handset this time, starting at £699.

In contrast, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the most expensive, with a £1,099 price tag.

There are a couple of things that differentiate the premium model, including a triple-lens camera system that captures more light for sharper and better pictures.

The iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Max, and last month’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, are all powered by Apple’s latest A14 bionic processor.

Pre-orders opened to UK customers on Friday 6th November, with both the Mini and Pro Max available on contract and SIM-free. Customers can also place online orders for HomePod mini, the newest addition to the HomePod family.
