The Apple iPhone 12 in Purple has officially been launched today, and it was first announced at Apple’s very own “Spring Loaded” event. The new colour will be available only on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini for now, with no signs of the colour coming to the Pro and Pro Max models.
To recap, the Apple iPhone 12 series is powered by the latest Apple A14 Bionic processor. The standard iPhone 12 display has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR panel. In the camera department, the iPhone 12 has a new dual-camera system, which consists of a 12MP ultra-wide angle sensor, and a 12MP wide angle sensor. The new 7 element lens delivers 27% improvement in lowlight environments.
Wireless charging has also been improved on the iPhone 12. The company introduced MagSafe for iPhone, which allows the smartphone to be charged wirelessly at 15W speeds. With MagSafe, iPhone 12 can recognise the different wireless accessories that is attached onto the smartphone. There’s the MagSafe Wallet, MagSafe phone casing, MagSafe duo charger, and more.
To keep the iPhone safe from drops, Apple introduced ceramic shield glass coating on the iPhone 12’s chassis. Apple has also confirmed that the iPhone 12 series will not come with any charger or earphones, and that results in thinner packaging, which saves on materials used and reduces wastage.

As for the Mini, it is a 5.4-inch device which utilizes the Super Retina XDR display. On top of having the new Apple A14 Bionic and 5G connectivity, the device is also coated with the new Ceramic Shield for better protection.
