Apple released a new color forAnd It is spring, and it is purple. It is on sale right now, but I got my hands on one of the new phones ahead of time. And I can really confirm, it’s purple. But the new color time is six months after Apple launched the iPhone 12 series, and less than six months from the rumor. . So should you buy one or wait? I promise to explain.
Purple is the sixth color for the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini, which comes in Black, White, Blue, Green, Product Red and now Purple. Apple’s Rainbow logo had six colors, which the company used from the late ’70s to the’ 90s, including purple. New Purple Color Not Availableor , Which makes sense because Pro models usually stick to graphite, silver and gold finishes.
PurpleAnd Went on sale in April. Prices start at $ 829 (£ 799, AU $ 1,350) for the iPhone 12 or $ 799 if you activate it on a carrier when you purchase it. The Purple iPhone 12 Mini starts at $ 729 (£ 699, AU $ 1,199) or $ 699 with a carrier discount.
Unboxing the iPhone 12 in purple is no surprise, just like unboxing another iPhone 12 or 12 Mini. It has the same slim box design that Apple started in October to minimize its impact on the environment. The box has a purple phone with the word iPhone on it and the Apple logo in purple.
It comes with the same accessories as other iPhone 12 models: a Lightning-to-USB-C cable. Apple is not included.
My first reaction to seeing the phone in person? Yes, she is purple. In the event, the purple color in the promotion video looked like Deep Purple, a Prince Purple. Or Joker from Batman Purple. But it is actually a very light purple. Almost like an Easter violet.
Last year, there wasPurple in color, but it was more of a light lavender color. Purple on the iPhone 12 looks more opulent, but gives the same positive vibes.
The flat aluminum edges on the iPhone 12 are also purple and match the back. It certainly looks personally attractive. But even though the color is new, everything else about the phone is the same. It has the same support for 5G. The OLED screen is covered with Apple’s ceramic shield. The body is rated IP68 for dust- and water-resistance. It supports MagSafe wireless charging and accessories. It has the same A14 bionic processor, which runs on iOS 14 software and even has similar cameras.
And this brings me to the question: should you buy it? We’re at that weird halfway point in the typical iPhone refresh cycle. And it’s smart for Apple to release a new color to help drive interest in the iPhone 12.
In most cases, if you are due to upgrade and want to get an iPhone, it would be silly to wait. Get the iPhone 12 and relax knowing that Apple supports its phone four or five years after its release with OS and security updates.
If you know you want the latest and the latest and you can wait six months, then you probably already know your decision. And if you like all things purple, what are you waiting for? But let’s be real for a moment. No matter which phone you get or what color it is, most people will take this purple beauty and put it in a case.
