Despite all the news that the iPhone 12 may be delayed due to quarantine caused by the coronavirus, nothing can stop the leaks associated with the new iPhones. One of the latest insiders revealed how much the iPhone 12 will cost, as well as the price of other Apple smartphones that the company is expected to introduce this fall. In addition, it became known what screen size the new iPhones will have: we are promised four versions of Apple phones this year.
Insider John Prosser, who was one of those who accurately “predicted” the iPhone SE 2020 release date, revealed some details about the iPhone 12. According to him, the iPhone 12 will have a screen with a diagonal of 5.4 inches and will cost 649 dollars. This model is codenamed D52G and is likely to be equipped with two cameras. iPhone 11 can now be bought for $699, which means that the new smartphone will be slightly cheaper.

It is expected that another model of the iPhone 12 will be equipped with a 6.1-inch screen, the ability to connect to 5G networks, and also two cameras. This model is codenamed D53G and, according to sources, will cost $ 749. A little more expensive than the iPhone 11, although I personally have big doubts about the name. So Apple in general will confuse everyone, if only one phone is not called simply iPhone 12, and the other is iPhone 12 5G.
The iPhone 12 Pro model is likely to be equipped with a 6.1-inch screen and three cameras and will cost $999 – like the younger version of the iPhone 11 Pro now. Finally, the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be equipped with a 6.7-inch OLED screen and three cameras. It will also be able to connect to 5G networks and will probably cost $1,099. The iPhone 11 Pro Max costs exactly the same.
It turns out that Apple’s pricing policy will not change much this year, except that the company will release a slightly more budget version of the iPhone 12 (but this is not accurate). It’s good that prices will not increase, which could very well happen due to quarantine losses caused by Apple.
What does the iPhone 12 look like?
As for the appearance of the iPhone 12, recent leaks confirm that the phone will have an appearance similar to the new iPad Pro. The smartphone will receive chopped edges, but it is not known whether the back panel of the new product will be glass or Apple will return to metal – as in the iPhone 5 and 5s. Or rather, as in the iPhone 4s, where there was a glass back panel.
Apple also decided to reduce the size of the notches in the display, which hides the face recognition hardware complex. Apparently, the company heard the claims of all opponents of the bang. Moreover, new iPhones always come to customers better if they have noticeable distinctive features compared to the previous generation. For example, iPhone X was bought much more often than the same iPhone 8, which was not much different from iPhone 7.
By the way, in mid-April, the same insider John Prosser allegedly leaked the drawing of iPhone 12. Judging by it, Apple was unable to make the sensors responsible for face recognition more compact, so in Cupertino they decided to just make the conversational speaker a little higher. Instead of placing it in a row with scanning elements, the company’s designers placed it in the upper frame, above the Face ID hardware complex.
It was this insider who “leaked” to the Network part of Apple’s presentation, at which the new iPad Pro was supposed to be presented. An excerpt from Apple’s presentation, which described the LiDAR device, was visible on the frames. A little later, he deleted the record saying that these materials were “for internal use only”. Perhaps this was a presentation of engineers for company management. Well, let’s see if Apple will show something in May – and there we’ll already think about whether to believe it or not.
