That’s right, the Apple Store today offers discounts on pre-orders for the new iPhone and HomePod mini.
The store should be up and running again at around 5am Pacific time, so if you’re waiting to order a new HomePod mini or iPhone 12 mini or iPhone 12 Pro Max, you have to wait a few more hours.
Last night, Apple allowed several publications to post their practice with the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max, with both ends of the smallest and largest flagship phone offering spectrum that Apple has created for now.
The iPhone 12 mini has a 5.4-inch OLED display. Thanks to the minimal bezels, the overall of the device is only slightly larger than that of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7. It has an aluminum rear dual camera system and is powered by the high-speed A14 chip. Models that start at $ 729 are unlocked with 64 GB of storage.
The $ 1099 iPhone 12 Pro Max is roughly equivalent to the iPhone 11 Pro Max in physical size, but now has an even larger 6.7-inch display. The Max also has Apple’s best camera system with a wider aperture sensor that can capture up to 87% more light, resulting in significantly less noise, especially at night … although they We’ll have to wait for full reviews to be published exactly how much difference it makes in practice.
Like all iPhone 12 models, Mini and Max can connect to high-speed 5G mobile network. US models support mmWave ultra-wide band connections with typical download speeds in excess of 1 gigabit, if you happen to be near UWB cell tower.
The HomePod mini is Apple’s latest attempt to disrupt the smart home market, at a much more affordable price than the $ 299 premium home audio HomePod. At $ 99, Apple says the HomePod mini will deliver room-filling sound but it lacks any of the spatial awareness features that the original HomePod pioneered and the device has only one internal speaker. You can still use two HomePod miniaturizers together in a stereo pair, or dot them throughout the house and take advantage of synchronized multi-room audio. We’ll have to wait for everyone to practice with the HomePod mini to know exactly what it sounds like.
With the Mini, Apple has focused more on the personal assistant aspect of the smart speaker, introducing new features like daily update summaries and Intercom mode. The Mini can act as a HomeKit home hub and lets you control all of your smart HomeKit devices with your voice. The $ 99 Mini is much more competitive than the lower segment of the smart speaker market, where Amazon Echo and Google Home dominate.
