Apple began accepting orders on Friday for the final two iPhone 12 models, including the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the iPhone 12 Mini, that were announced in October. You can also order his new HomePod Mini smart speaker for $99.
This is the first year Apple has ever introduced four different models of the iPhone at the same time, and it split the launches of the iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max/iPhone 12 Mini between October and November.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at $1,099 and has the largest display ever on an iPhone and includes some additional features, such as better low-light camera performance, over the normal $999 iPhone 12 Pro.
The iPhone 12 Mini offers many of the same features as the regular iPhone 12 but in a smaller form factor that may appeal more to people who don’t want a large phone. It’s the most affordable new option and starting at $699.
The HomePod Mini speaker could help Apple more effectively compete against Amazon and Google in the smart-speaker market.
The original HomePod still sells for $299, but that is far more expensive than the sub-$99 prices you can pay for an Amazon Echo or Google Nest speaker. It has Siri built-in, which you can use to ask for the weather, directions, and more.
