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.

I’ve had the iPhone 15 Pro for six months. Here’s why it’s still amazing

The iPhone 15 Pro was released on September 22, 2023. When Apple announced it, I was excited about changes like the Action button and the titanium frame.

Now, as we approach the end of the first quarter of 2024, the iPhone 15 line is six months old. We’ve already had a slew of flagship Android phones, with the OnePlus 12 and the Samsung Galaxy S24 being particular standouts.

The iPhone 15 lineup — which includes the standard iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro — is the iPhone at its best. It's the latest series of iPhones available today and the default choice if you're buying a new iPhone in 2024.

But it’s not the only choice of iPhones you can purchase. In fact, Apple still sells the iPhone 14, iPhone 13, and the iPhone SE on its website. You could also find other iPhone models available – refurbished or new — from other retailers or carrier stores.

We now know when Apple is adding RCS to the iPhone
The iPhone 14 Plus held in a man's hand.

Last November, Apple made a surprise announcement when it confirmed that RCS was coming to the iPhone in 2024. It's something iPhone and Android phone users alike have been waiting years for, but there was just one small problem: Apple never said when in 2024 RCS was coming. Thanks to Google, of all companies, we now have a better idea of when RCS is heading to the iPhone.

As spotted by 9to5Google, the Android website was recently updated with a new page dedicated to Google Messages. If you click on the "See more features" button for the section talking about RCS, there's a section titled "Better messaging for all" with the following text: "Apple has announced it will be adopting RCS in the fall of 2024. Once that happens, it will mean a better messaging experience for everyone."
