Christmas has come early for Apple fans, with the tech giant today unveiling its new range of iPhones, set to hit Aussie stores next month.
The main new feature of the smart phones, which will be available in four different models including the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, is that all phones come with 5G technology.
Apple said the newly designed iPhone 12 models also feature “expansive edge-to-edge Super Retina XDR displays for a brighter, more immersive viewing experience” and a new “Ceramic Shield front cover, providing the biggest jump in durability ever on iPhone.”

The phones also boast the fastest chip in a smartphone ever and an advanced dual-camera system, which “delivers meaningful new computational photography features and the highest quality video in a smartphone”.
The iPhone 12 models also now feature MagSafe, meaning the phones will no longer come with earphones or a charger in the box.
“MagSafe offers high-powered wireless charging and an all-new ecosystem of accessories that easily attach to iPhone,” Apple said on Wednesday.
iPhone users will now have to buy EarPods and the USB power adapter separately.
Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, Greg Joswiak, said the arrival of 5G “marks the beginning of a new era for iPhone”.
“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,” he said.
