With a range of 4 models instead of 3 last year, the iPhone 12 family will brew broad in the mid / high end segment. For analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple nevertheless expects much stronger popularity for the 6.1 "iPhone 12, which accounts for 40% of deliveries. The other models, the iPhone 12 mini of 5.4 "and the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max of 6.1" and 6.7 "would have 20% each.
The more compact size of the iPhone 12 mini (smaller than an iPhone X and its 5.8 ") would serve it well with a large portion of customers in this segment, despite a more attractive price tag. It would start at $ 699. against $ 100 more for the iPhone 12.
Finally, the analyst considers that the success of this range will not be based more on the availability of 5G than on the price chosen for these different models. It is not this new connectivity that will necessarily make them more attractive from the point of view of customers.
