Indeed Apple has confirmed the introduction of a new color for its iPhone 12 series phones. Purple is the color that the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 have. The colors look elegant, stylish, and fresh and can be ordered immediately.
Last year in October, Apple presented the iPhone 12 series. The two cheap models were introduced in red, white, black, green, and blue colors. A sixth color has now been added; Violet. This new color brings a unique style and looks for the flat aluminum sides to the rear panel. You can order the new light purple color variant immediately from Apple’s website and available from April 30.
The design of the iPhone 12 series has been thoroughly revised. The devices have a distinctive flat frame with a Super Retina XDR display with Ceramic Shield. Thanks to the powerful A14 Bionic processor, the devices deliver high-speed performance, and they are also the first 5G phones from Apple. Both the iPhone 12 and the 12 mini are equipped with a dual-camera.
The new iPhone 12 in Purple color
The Apple iPhone 12 models are more durable than ever before. For the first time, a Ceramic Shield screen protector has been applied, protecting the smartphone against scratches and drops. The iPhone 12 (mini) is also provided with an IP68 rating, which means that the devices are dust and waterproof.
The purple iPhone 12 runs on the iOS 14.5 operating system. This is an upgraded variant of iOS 14, with which the 12 series was initially released. Several new functions have been added. For example, it is possible to unlock the iPhone with the Apple Watch while wearing a mouth mask. There is also an improved Apple Podcast app available, the Search tab has been expanded, and new Emoji has been added.
Since last year, Apple no longer supplies a charger with its smartphone models. Unfortunately, this also applies to the purple iPhone 12. Of course, the device is compatible with the new MagSafe wireless charger. With the help of this charger, you can charge the smartphone with a maximum charging power of 15W. Do you have more Apple devices? Then the MagSafe Duo Charger can offer a solution, so you can also charge your Apple Watch simultaneously.
