In October Apple released four new phones, the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max. The standard iPhone 12 will start at $US799, and the iPhone 12 Mini starts at $US699. The Mini is available to preorder beginning today, and will ship on November 13.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini come in five colours: black, blue, green, red, and white. This information leaked shortly before Apple’s event.

Some analysts have predicted that Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup could be one of the company’s most important launches in years. This cycle finally includes 5G support, plus new sizes and lower costs, and experts are predicting many owners of older models will take the leap the year and upgrade.

Here are all the new colours to choose from for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini.


Black is the most classic iPhone colour, an easy default choice that goes with anything.

Apple has sold a black version of nearly every iPhone it’s ever made, and it’s not likely to feel old or tired after a few months.

The blue iPhone 12 is a darker blue, but not the near-black of the iPhone 12 Pro.

Blue is a solid, classic option that’s different enough to be interesting.

As usual, red is the boldest iPhone colour available.

It isn’t neon, but it is eye-catching.

Green is pastel and understated, a bit lighter than the minty green of last year.

The light colour might show scuffs easily, but a clear case is a perfect way to show off the hue.

Finally, white is right up there with black as a classic iPhone colour.

White is light, clean, and feels very in line with Apple’s minimalist, design-y aesthetic.
