- Frequent leaker Evan Blass has posted official-looking iPhone 12 series renders.
- The images also show off the iPhones in various colorways.
- All four models sport sizeable notches.
The Apple iPhone 12 series is due to be unveiled later today, and we’ve already seen a few apparent leaks in recent weeks. The info drops aren’t stopping yet though, as the biggest leak yet may have dropped.
Veteran leaker Evan Blass has posted official-looking renders of the iPhone 12 series, showing four models in various colorways. The four models, as previously leaked, are the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The iPhone 12 Mini is available in black, blue, green, red, and white. Check out the phone in its various color options below.
The standard iPhone 12 shares the Mini’s colorways of black, blue, green, red, and white. It also looks like the two phones share dual rear cameras, which we’re expecting to be standard and ultra-wide shooters.
Check out the standard iPhone 12 renders below.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are set to share the same blue, gold, graphite, and silver colorways. Check out the iPhone 12 Pro renders below.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max continue the triple rear camera trend established by the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. We can also make out a smaller sensor in the lower right-hand corner of the camera housing. This could be a 3D ToF or LiDAR sensor for more accurate depth effects and augmented reality capabilities.
You can view the gallery below for Blass’s renders of the Pro Max variant.
It’s also interesting to note that all four models sport relatively wide notches that are ostensibly for 3D face unlock. We’re really hoping Apple

Apple’s next iPhone may come in blue, according to a last-minute rumor from well-known device leaker Evan Blass, who posted that tidbit to the internet shortly before the company’s.
In his post on the app Voice, which pitches itself as an alternative social network to Twitter that authenticates people are real, Blass showed off what appear to be Apple marketing images for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. He said the phones would come in blue, gold, graphite and silver. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
The new devices, which are being called the iPhone 12 by the Apple community though the company hasn’t confirmed their names, are expected to be announced Tuesday alongside a possible new smaller smartphone,, as well as a , among other things.
CNET’s editors will be covering the event live as it happens, and you can follow along.
Apple’s iPhone 12 series launches in less than two days, but excitement about their release has been curtailed following multiple leaks detailing design compromises and cost cutting. But the biggest fear was just crushed.
Following leaks that Apple will equip the iPhone 12 range with smaller batteries than their predecessors, prolific industry insider Max Weinbach has confirmed “finalized and revised” information about the models, revealing they will somehow deliver better battery life than the iPhone 11 series. This is massive news, given poor battery life is a deal breaker for many users.
Weinbach, via his PineLeaks account, states that iPhone 12 upgraders should “expect at least a 1 hour battery life increase for the Pro models”. This is a remarkable achievement considering they also have power draining 5G modems, which have forced rivals to fit significantly larger batteries just to stand still (hat tip to Apple’s remarkable new A14 chipset). Weinbach says the exception is the all-new iPhone 12 mini which will “perform worse than the current iPhone 11, which is expected because of its [smaller] form factor.”
That said, it isn’t all good news. The leaker also retweeted a claim by respected tipster Jon Prosser that the iPhone 12 range will miss out on 120Hz ProMotion displays and the decision was “100% about battery life.” Prosser explains that the “Hardware was more than capable – but it just eats through battery, and 5G drains enough battery by itself. It was basically a choice between 120Hz or 5G, and they picked 5G.”
Prosser goes on to say this was the right decision because “5G is
