Here’s a sneak peek at the iPhone 12 series, in all the available colors

Apple’s iPhone 12 launch event is just a few hours away, and that means it’s time for last-minute leaks courtesy of longtime leaker @evleaks. He just dropped perfectly crisp renders on the social site Voice of all four models — the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max — in their respective color options.

The iPhone 12 Mini and standard iPhone 12 are apparently coming in black, blue, green, Product (Red), and white, while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will come in blue, gold, graphite, and silver.

First, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini. The iPhone 12 is shown here, but the colors and design are seemingly identical, just scaled down for the Mini.

Then, the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, which again look identical in these renders … all you have to do is scale the image.

The difference in color options follows the trend of previous years where Apple has spiced things up with colors more in the less-expensive phones, and kept things reserved and sleek for the Pro models. Regardless, blue is obviously the hot new color for the whole lineup. And the whole color palette across the phones remains very Apple-looking and aligns well with the new iPad Air colors.

If these renders are indeed the real deal, and at this point I expect they are, we’re also looking at a slightly different finish to the phones once again. The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini, with their flashier colors, are also finished in a bit more of a glossy style, while the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max use more of a matte finish — just like the iPhone 11 Pro.

Two more things we can derive from these leaks are the cameras and the display bezels. The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini will stick with two cameras, like the iPhone 11, while the 12 Pro models look to have three cameras, plus the rumored lidar sensor in the bottom-right corner of the camera pod. As for the displays, the bezels do look smaller, and the Face ID notch seems a bit smaller, but it’s really tough to tell as these renders are typically very flattering. We’ll have to see them in person to know for sure.

All four iPhone 12 models offer 5G connectivity, which is a first for Apple but a feature found on most Android phones over $500. Apple chose to include both the widespread Sub-6 5G and lesser-used mmWave 5G radios on its phones, ensuring wider compatibility, particularly in the U.S.

Vivo may not be as popular outside of China as its sister brands OnePlus and Realme, but it has recently gained widespread recognition for its impressive cameras on the flagship X series.

For their commendable camera quality, Vivo's X series phones rely on its partnership with Zeiss, which provides special lenses and helps tune colors for these devices. The Vivo X90 Pro is the latest product in the series to benefit from this exclusive partnership, which has resulted in some phenomenal photography.

I really hope the iPhone 16 Pro Max doesn’t look like this

We may still be waiting for Apple to announce the iPhone 15 series, but that hasn't stopped the iPhone 16 leaks from already trickling in. More specifically, new renders now provide a first glimpse at what 2024's iPhone 16 Pro Max could look like ... and it's a lot.

In collaboration with Apple leaker Sonny Dickson, 9to5Mac has published early CAD renders of the iPhone 16 Pro Max / iPhone 16 Ultra. The name of the device is still up in the air, but the renders showcase what the rumored 6.9-inch display will potentially look like.

Let’s be clear, Apple — it’s time to make a transparent iPhone
Deep Purple iPhone 14 Pro with Beats Studio Buds+ in Transparent

Apple has released a new product that's gotten a lot of attention because of an awesome new color option. No, it’s not an iPhone, iPad, or even an Apple Watch. Heck, it’s not even the AirPods Pro 2. So, what am I talking about?

Apple acquired Beats by Dre in 2014, and this week, Beats dropped the new Beats Studio Buds+, which are pretty similar to the AirPods Pro 2, but cost less dough. And they come in one of the coolest colors I’ve seen in a long time: transparent.
