The Black Friday sales season is here! The prices shown below are the best available now, though you may need to buy quickly as some deals will sell out.

The iPhone 12 range is now official but with three sizes and four models to choose between this year, it's quite a change compared to the iPhone 11. Only the 6.1in iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are available to buy right now, but here we cover how to get your hands on every member of Apple's first 5G-capable iPhone lineup.

Beyond the discreet models, the iPhone 12 series also adopts a new design language, reminiscent of the iPad Pro range (and the iPhone 4/5 before that), introduces a new, faster processor in the A14 Bionic, boasts better camera performance and, of course, adds in 5G. 

When is the iPhone 12 range on sale? 

The iPhone 12 range launch is a little more staggered than it has been in previous years. 

The first iPhones available are the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, both on pre-order from 16 October and now available to buy, as of 23 October.

Those waiting for the smaller iPhone 12 Mini or ultra-high-end iPhone 12 Pro Max will have to wait a little longer; with pre-orders opening on 6 November and shipping on 13 November. We'll be tracking where you can pick those up as soon as pre-orders begin.

How much does the iPhone 12 range cost? 

The good news is that Apple hasn't raise the price of the iPhone 12 range (aside from a slight tweak to the iPhone 12's price) despite the jump forward in design, performance, and connectivity – but they are still expensive, and that’s especially true of the ultra-high-end iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Where to pre-order the iPhone 12 Mini & iPhone 12 Pro Max?

As already mentioned, you'll have to wait until 6 November to place your pre-orders on either the diminutive iPhone 12 Mini or the sizeable iPhone 12 Pro Max but, once again, Apple will likely be your first port of call.

We'll update this article with direct links once pre-orders are available.

What’s new with the iPhone 12 range? 

The iPhone 12 range is so exciting because there are a lot of changes on offer. The most noticeable is the design, which steps away from curved edges to something altogether more angular and reminiscent of the iPad Pro and even the iPhone 5. 

That new design also means Apple has expanded the size of the display of most of the range without impacting the overall footprint, with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro sporting a 6.1in display and the iPhone 12 Pro Max sporting a 6.7in display. There’s also the iPhone 12 Mini, with a 5.4in display in the same form factor as the original 4.7in iPhone SE.  

Let's not forget the 5nm A14 Bionic, which Apple is calling the fastest chipset in any smartphone right now, with boosts to CPU, GPU and Neural Engine performance and, of course, 5G connectivity is standard across the entire range. There's also MagSafe for iPhone - a new magnetic system that allows for improved wireless charging performance and opens the door for a new range of accessories. 

You’ve got new features specific to the iPhone 12 Pro range, including the ability to record and edit Dolby Vision content directly via the Camera and Photos apps. There are also features specific to the top-end iPhone 12 Pro Max, including a new DSLR-esque OIS (optical image stabilisation) system, a larger camera sensor, for a huge boost to low-light photography and the inclusion of a LiDAR sensor for lightning-fast autofocus capabilities.  

Believe it or not, we’re only scratching the surface of what’s new with the iPhone 12 range. If you want to know more, take a look at everything you need to know about the iPhone 12 range, and if you’re wondering about the specific differences between the Pro models, we’ve got a piece on the iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 12 Pro Max alongside our full iPhone 12 review.
