IPhone 12 fix costs rise compared to iPhone 11

Share

We knew a lot about the iPhone 12 family before the launch, from the names, to the screen sizes, and also the battery size - specifically that the batteries are smaller than the previous generation. And finally, a fourth iPhone, the 12 Mini, takes everything in the standard 12 and puts it in a relatively tiny body with a 5.4-inch screen.

A report by Brazilian tech portal Tecnoblog has found that the iPhone 12 Pro with the model A2407 has been certified by Anatel to be sold in the country.

Anatel is reported to have approved the batteries of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max but the capacities for those devices are not revealed at this time. So it won't be a surprise if iPhone 12 Pro has a smaller battery than the one inside the iPhone 12. Further, Kuo said that the iPhone 12 Mini might just bring in 10 - 15 percent of sales this year, much below the initial expectations of 20 - 25 percent.

Foxconn remains Apple's main iPhone assembler, and has secured the bulk of orders for the new iPhone 12 series through the first quarter of 2021.

Regulators will review the vaccines after the companies have enough data to submit applications seeking an EUA or formal approval. "If earlier, it is better", Maduro said.

Back in July reports appeared that Apple had registered the new iPhone batteries on the databases of authorities in Korea, Denmark and in China. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max both come with a triple rear camera setup as well as a LiDAR sensor for better low light photography and AR application.

You can, of course, minimize or remove these fix costs by opting to sign up for an AppleCare+ plan.

New and recontracting Optus customers can buy the iPhone 12 64GB for a starting price of AUD 37.46 per month over 36 months, in combination with the AUD 49 Optus Choice plan with 60GB of included monthly data. And this is without the help of India, South Korea, and more than a dozen other countries, that will begin pre-ordering the two phones on October 23.
