Upcoming iPhone 12 Series in Australia – Release Date, Price, News and more

Very much like every year, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 Series has created a buzz in the world and everyone is desperately waiting for iPhone 12 range to get their hands on. Luckily or surprisingly, Apple has announced a launch date for its upcoming smartphone series not only in Australia but also worldwide Upcoming iPhone 12 Series.

The Apple iPhone 12 in Australia will arrive in three different models named iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and a super-fancy but super-expensive iPhone 12 Pro Max.

As it’s yet to be launched officially by Apple, so many iPhone 12 rumours and leaks have suggested that Apple has added now a LiDAR Scanner (like an iPad Pro 2020) and some online sources have confirmed bigger display sizes as compared to 2019’s iPhone devices.

Besides, all upcoming iPhone 12 smartphones will have an up-gradation in terms of power and a plethora of other changes alongside inner improvements – of course. Here, we’ve listed down all the details we’ve gone through and heard from different platforms regarding iPhone 12 in Australia and its siblings such as an official release date, pricing details, design, and more. So, let’s keep going!

Release Date

The official iPhone 12 release date worldwide is said to be September 15 which is quite delayed as compared to last year. However, it’s not likely to hit shelves before October ends and a source has suggested that everyone has to wait for the second half of October.

Although, we’ll see iPhone 12, 12 Max, and 12 Pro Max but 12 Pro Max will only be a smartphone that can get access to mmWave 5G Technology.

The phones will be released through an online-only event that will go live at 10 AM PT which means an official iPhone 12 release date in Australia will be September 16. Pre-orders of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro would be opened in October – most probably on October 16 and will officially be starting hitting shelves on October 23, 2020.

As far as Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max availability is concerned, it wouldn’t be up for shipment or pre-order until November. Well, we should consider this information with a pinch of salt as an Apple details leaker named Mark Gurman has posted a thumbs down emoji and suggested that Prosser is wrong.

“Prosser Suggests, Apple will face some delays when the iPhone 12 Series will officially go on sale, therefore, a delay in the announcement is expected as well.”


We are quite sure about iPhone 12 Price as compared to its release date and official availability. Thanks to a handsome number of suggestions and leaks, we are expecting iPhone 12 to be in the line with last year’s iPhone range.

As a reminder, the iPhone 11 arrived at AU$1199 whereas iPhone 11 Pro made its availability with a price tag of AU$1749. And when it comes to iPhone 11 Pro Max, users spent approx. AU$1899 to get their hands on.

Obviously, the iPhone 12 range wouldn’t cost the same like iPhone 11 of 2019 – thanks to its upgraded features, bigger displays, and a lot of inner improvements. However, you will not have to leave a dent on your wallet to grab one. Here we have listed down complete details regarding iPhone 12 Price in Australia variants-wise for your convenience. So, let’s have a look!

Apple iPhone 12 Price Australia:

  • iPhone 12 4G 128GB: AU$760
  • iPhone 12 5G 128GB: Not Confirmed
  • iPhone 12 4G 256GB: Not Confirmed
  • iPhone 12 5G 256GB: AU$899
  • iPhone 12 4G 512GB: AU$1038
  • iPhone 12 5G 512GB: Not Confirmed

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Price Australia:

  • iPhone 12 Pro 128GB: AU$1384
  • iPhone 12 Pro 256GB: AU$1523
  • iPhone 12 Pro 512GB: AU$1799

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Australia:

  • iPhone 12 Pro Max 128GB: AU$1523
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max 256GB: AU$1661
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB: AU$1939

Important Note: Don’t forget that we’re not exactly sure about prices for Australia as we’ve listed above details based on what rumours and leaks have suggested.

A well-recognised analyst with an excellent track record named Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that Apple will increase the cost of its 5G smartphone around AU$305 and it’s really likely. Putting everything aside for a short while, Apple’s upcoming range indeed will be expensive but here is good news – iPhone 11 price will immediately fall down a bit when it lands. Chances are iPhone 11 will drop by AU$210 whereas its siblings i.e. iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max will be available at unmatched rates.


You should expect a huge change in terms of the iPhone 12 Design with many improvements. Reports have confirmed that Apple manufactured an iPhone 12 after getting inspired by the iPhone 4 and 5 alongside the addition of the elements we’ve seen in iPad Pro 2020.

Coming to the point, iPhone 12 is said to be equipped with a flatter metal frame which makes it different from last year’s iPhone 11. The rear is likely to be made of glass – however, Apple has made some changes on the edges. This time, the iPhone 12 range will hold square edges than rounded ones.

Another source confirmed that iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will sport flat stainless-steel edges that will enable you to experience flat display and sharply rounded corners. Besides, a whole range in 2020 will be thinner with small bezels as compared to the iPhone 11 range of 2019. The thickness of iPhone 12 Pro Max are said to be 7.4mm only – a significant down from iPhone 11 Pro which comprises 8.1mm in thickness.

Based on leaks, at least iPhone 12 Pro is likely to hold a wide notch that we’ve already seen in iPhone X and last year’s iPhone range. The notch will hold different cameras and a large mmWave antenna cut-out.


Without a shadow of a doubt, the iPhone 12 range will have a lot of difference over the iPhone 11 not only in terms of design and cameras but display as well. Here is a quick view of what iPhone 12, Pro, and Pro Max will dish out when it comes to the display.

  • Apple iPhone 12 Display: 5.4-inches
  • Apple iPhone 12 Pro Display: 6.1-inches
  • Apple iPhone 12 Pro Display: 6.7-inches

If everything is to be believed, then, iPhone 12 Pro seems to have a larger display – especially for those who don’t want to spend a fortune but looks for a bigger display. As far as the 5.4-inches model is concerned, there is solid evidence, shared by online sources who found an update to the Display Zoom feature which enables users to change the interface’s size to match it with smaller screen iPhones.

Let us give you an example, you can switch your iPhone 11 Pro’s biggest 6.5-inches display to 5.8-inches which means all the icons will become bigger. Unfortunately, this option isn’t available for the displays with a resolution of 960 x 2079 but it definitely makes sense for a model with a 5.4-inches display.

What else? Some sources through different platforms have confirmed that Pro and Pro Max models will sport an OLED display which isn’t only cheap but also thinner to produce and we’ve already seen this technology in iPhone 11 Pro range.


Will you really see some major changes in terms of the camera? Most probably, yes! The upcoming iPhone 12 range will arrive with mind-boggling changes in cameras to entice users. The most important and interesting feature Apple has added is LiDAR Scanner – available in iPad Pro 2020. This scanner is very much capable to measure the distances without any error for improved AR (augmented reality) as well as Portrait Mode.

The basic iPhone 12 is likely to hold two cameras on its rear without a LiDAR Scanner whereas iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will comprise a trio-camera configuration alongside LiDAR Scanner. Again, it’s just a suggestion by different online sources – therefore, you should consider this information with a pinch of salt.

It’s not yet clear how many MP sensors will be used by Apple in its upcoming iPhone 12 range but here is a quick view of a number of camera sensors used in iPhone 12, Pro, and Pro Max.

Number of Cameras

  • iPhone 12: Two
  • iPhone 12 Pro: Three
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max: Three

Availability of LiDAR Scanner

  • iPhone 12: No
  • iPhone 12 Pro: Yes
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max: Yes

As mentioned above, things are pretty blurred in terms of camera specifications but thanks to some rumours and leaks, iPhone 12 is said to come up with a 64MP primary camera, partnered with a 12MP camera. These camera lenses would comprise multiple features such as Night Mode, Macro Mode, and much more.

Specs You Should Expect

As iPhone 12 range isn’t yet arrived, therefore, we’re not really clear on everything so far but at least we can consider rumours, suggestions, and leaks from highly-recognised online sources. They confirm that the iPhone 12 range will be loaded with a 5nm A14 Bionic Chipset which will have more improvements over last year’s chipset.

There will be a significant boost in RAM with sources claimed that 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will sport 6GB of RAM – a massive change from its predecessors’ 4GB RAM. It’s most likely as it’s being said by a wide number of sources and mentioned in a lot of rumours and leaks.

Chances are Apple 12 range will comprise a new 802.11ay feature which will allow users to share content at 20-30Gbps speed. Taking a look at its onboard memory, a leakster Prosser suggested that iPhone 12 will only come in 128GB and 256GB variants whereas 12 Pro and Pro Max will comprise three different storages such as 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.

Last but absolutely not the least, iPhone 12 is rumoured to be loaded with a 2227mAh non-removable battery while 12 Pro and Pro Max will comprise 2775mAh and 3687mAh batteries, respectively.

We’re keeping an eye on iPhone 12 release date and exact pricing details alongside authentic and accurate specifications. As soon as more details drop, we’ll have this page updated. So, be sure to bookmark this page and visit often to get the accurate details in a jiffy.
