Snapchat will let creators make LiDAR lenses for iPhone 12 Pro

In this year's iPhone reveal, Apple announced that it will bring back its MagSafe charging brand, which will now target the new iPhone 12 line. You also get data-free music streaming for Apple Music and data-free sports streaming of things like the AFL, AFLW, NRL and A-League.

Samsung has recently posted a couple of images on Samsung and Twitter, mocking Apple's decision to remove power adapters and earphones from the boxes of their new iPhone 12 lineup and other iPhone models. Not only Apple's iPhone 12 mini in the new 5.4 inch form factor has a mini battery, a certification from Brazil also indicates a smaller battery in the 6.1 inch iPhone 12 than in the 6.1 inch iPhone 11 from a year ago.

Interestingly, T-Mobile's own website isn't matching the new $30 discount on the iPhone 12, as it's still priced at $829.99.

In Australia, prices for the iPhone 12 Pro Max start at AU$1849.

Pre-order the Apple iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro to get £30 off Apple AirPods and double data on all plans. So theoretically, Apple wanted to keep the price of the iPhone 12 at a lower level by removing some accessories that it shipped with the device, instead requiring customers to buy them separately and thus pay extra for the full package.

The popular platform wrote that they doubted the iPhone 12 Pro Max's telephoto lens would surprise them in a post on Weibo, China's social media.

While the mmWave versions of each model will be sold exclusively in the United States, and it doesn't look like the non-mmWave models will even be available to U.S. customers, Apple is actually making four versions of each iPhone 12 model - the mmWave U.S. version plus three more without mmWave support to be sold in different regions around the world.

Meanwhile, AT&T gives out better deal, so customers can avail the iPhone 12 for free.

If you're looking to postpaid, telcos usually take the cost of the device and divide it by either 24 or 36 months. However for these with their eyes set on the iPhone 12 or 12 Professional, at the moment is the day. We arrived at this number by simply taking the RRP of the iPhone 12 ($1349), dividing it by the number of months and then adding on the price of Telstra's cheapest phone plan ($55).

The iPhone 12 Pro has a slightly brighter display than the iPhone 12 at a maximum 800 nits versus 625 nits. It's not as great as the Pro model in photography, but it will be enough for regular needs. It starts at a recommended retail price of AU$1699 for the 64GB model. Pricing for the 128GB and 256GB versions of the iPhone 12 are the same across the board now, too, at $849 and $949, respectively.
