Some of the Apple fans who are eagerly awaiting the launch of the iPhone 12 series are allegedly going to be in for a treat. The Apple iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are alleged to have 128GB as the storage option for the base variant. This is twice the storage that the base variant of the iPhone 11 Pro shipped with last year.
The report comes courtesy Apple leakster John Prosser who tweeted out a number of details surrounding the upcoming iPhone 12 series. His tweet said that the iPhone 12 will start shipping to distributors on October 5th, with the launch event confirmed for October 13. Additionally, his tweet said that the smallest of the iPhone 12 models will be named the iPhone 12 mini. The non-pro models will start with 64GB storage on the base variant. Storage on the base variants has been a contentious part of owning an iPhone, given that users don’t have the ability to expand storage via the means of a microSD card. Given this, users who opt for the iPhone 12 Pro or the iPhone 12 Pro Max should be in for a treat with the increased storage on the base variant.
Apple’s first shipment of final iPhone 12 units is going out to distributers on October 5th— Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) September 29, 2020
The shipment includes:
iPhone 12 mini 5.4
(Definitely the final marketing name)
iPhone 12 6.1
Event on October 13, as I mentioned before.
Prosser states that the non-Pro models will top out at 256GB of storage, something that is consistent with the iPhone 11 as well, which shipped in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB flavours. However, it would be interesting to see if Apple increases the maximum storage on the Pro models from the existing 512GB to 1TB. Samsung had announced the production of 1TB storage chips for smartphones back in January of 2019, so the technology does exist to make it happen.
Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone 12 series of smartphones on October 13, a month later than the usual September announcement. The delay has been attributed to the COVID-19 outbreak which caused delays across the entire supply-chain, including testing of the 5G modem. Apple is expected to announce four models in the iPhone 12 series this year, two non-Pro models and two Pro models.
