About this Deal
1. New iPhones will arrive without wired EarPod headphones or the charging adapter that links a device's Lighting input and a USB power adapter. Apple says it is removing those accessories to lessen iPhone packaging. The same goes for the iPhone 12 Mini and Pro Max models, which go up for preorder Nov. 6, and launch Nov. 13.
2. There really aren’t any completely “new” things on 5G that you couldn’t do on your existing 4G phone before.
3. 5G is Apple's biggest selling point, a phone that connects to the supposedly ultra-fast new 5G networks. But today's 5G service is spotty, only in 50 cities from Verizon; and when it's available from AT&T and T-Mobile, barely faster than the current 4G. Which 5G it supports – and where – will decide whether this next generation of wireless broadband delivers meaningful benefits to a new iPhone. Analysts expect 5G to start making an impact within the next two years. So if you're buying the phone for 5G nirvana, you could easily wait for the next edition and not have missed anything.
4. The iPhone 12 is supposed to be a brand new design, when in fact, it looks like a 2012 iPhone 5.
Apple killed off the 2019 iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max models. Still available for sale are the entry-level 11, the XR from 2018 and the entry-level SE. The older phones got discounted. The XR is now $499 and the 11 is $599. The SE is still the best bargain, at $399.
