iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max orders start arriving
Since the launch of iPhone 12, 12 mini, and Pro Max models, it has been hard to see the phone up close and personal due to the virtual events. However, now the first orders of the new phones have started arrive. Apple also shared some first look images of the phones on display in stores globally. Many customers have been taking to social media, sharing pictures of their new devices.
Apple shared some information about how the in-store process has changed in light of the pandemic, in the same press release showing the first in-store images of the devices;
“On Friday, November 13, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini went on sale around the world. iPhone 12 Pro Max features the most advanced pro camera system and the largest display ever on an iPhone, while iPhone 12 mini is the smallest, thinnest, and lightest 5G smartphone in the world.”
“Whether in person or online, Apple team members deliver the same level of service and support customers have come to expect from Apple. Online Apple Specialists are available to help with anything from setting up new devices, choosing a carrier plan, offering shopping assistance, or providing their expertise to customers around the world. For customers who wish to pick up new products in person, many Apple Store locations are open and operating in various service models to protect the health and well-being of customers and employees.”
Lines have been seen outside many Apples stores, however unlike previous years, these are only people who have already ordered the device. Apple has been changing and adapting its stores for the every changing COVID-19 pandemic. Some stores only accepting pre-booked slots and preordered device pick ups, and some more open.
