You Can Pre-Order The iPhone 12 And iPhone 12 Pro From 16 October
In a rather anticipated move, Apple unveiled its new line of iPhones at its “Hi Speed” event last night – the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The new phones offer cool features like an iPhone 5 redesign and MagSafe wireless charging, but the most pressing question on our minds right now is: how much does it cost in singapore and when can we get it?
Fortunately, Singapore is once again part of Apple’s initial rollout, with pre-orders for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro starting at October 16 (this Friday!) at 8 p.m. and availability from 23 october (next Friday!) on the Apple Store, authorized resellers and Apple telecom operators.
You’ll have to wait a bit longer if you want the iPhone 12 Mini or iPhone 12 Pro Max, however: pre-orders for these start on November 6 at 8 p.m. and availability from November 13.
On the price side, the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will start from S $ 1,149 (64 GB), S $ 1299 (64 GB), S $ 1649 (128 GB) and S $ 1749 (128 GB) respectively.
With the iPhone SE (S $ 649), iPhone XR (S $ 799), and iPhone 11 (S $ 979) remaining in the lineup, it looks like Apple is really covering all the bases when it comes to pricing.
So what do we think of the iPhone 12? Kind of a split, to be honest. 5G was a big one – otherwise the most importantly – talking point at last night’s event, but this conversation is a little less relevant in a local context, with 5G not really a thing in Singapore yet.
5G East more of a “when” and less of an “if” however, so at the very least phones are equipped for the inevitable future.
That aside, though, the iPhone 12 is still a solid entry from Apple: the redesign – albeit a bit derivative – is a breath of fresh air of the same we’ve had since 2017, and the introduction a smaller model will be ideal for those who feel that smartphones have grown too big in recent years.
Add in expected performance upgrades like the new A14 Bionic processor and a Super Retina XDR display on all models, and we’d say now would be a good time for an upgrade.
