Apple enters 5G market with iPhone 12

Apple has officially launched the iPhone 12 with 5G.

The tech giant hosted their 'Hi, Speed' event on Tuesday (13.10.20), which saw the unveiling of the high-speed device, which can be connected to Verizon's 5G ultrawide band, which Apple claims to be the fastest system in the world with over four gigabytes per second.

As well as having a shape similar to the iPad Pro, the iPhone 12 boasts a ceramic shield that is "tougher than any smartphone glass" and the handset is "virtually impervious to heat and electricity".

Apple also unveiled the iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone Pro Max and the first-ever iPhone mini, which costs just $699.

The iPhone 12 is available to pre-order from October 16, and costs $799.

However, owners will notice there isn't any Earbuds or a charger in the box, as Apple is no longer including them.

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, said: "The arrival of 5G marks the beginning of a new era for iPhone and we’re thrilled to bring these impressive new capabilities to our customers with iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini.

"We’re once again pushing the boundaries to deliver incredible computational photography advancements, Super Retina XDR displays, and the biggest leap in durability in iPhone history with the new Ceramic Shield front cover.

"Available in two great sizes, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini take design to a new level in a new form factor that’s as beautiful as it is durable, and makes it easier than ever for customers to find the perfect iPhone to fit their lifestyle."
