Apple cuts production of iPhone 12 mini in favor of iPhone 12 Pro line

A new report says Apple is still struggling to keep up with demand for the iPhone 12 Pro. Estimates suggest that the iPhone 12 lineup overall became a huge hit for Apple, the most popular since the iPhone 6, thanks to its new design, improved cameras, 5G networks, and an even faster A13 chip. Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty breaks it down in a new investor note (via Ped30): We continue to believe that the iPhone will beat expectations in the December quarter, as the mix shift to higher-end iPhone 12 models is a headwind for ASPs and revenue growth. The delivery times of the iPhone 12 Pro extend far beyond any model released in the last 4 years to 10 days. Delivery times decreased from 22 days ~ 2 weeks ago as Apple accelerates production of the iPhone 12 pointed out by ou...

Here are the best phones of 2020 launched in Canada

2020 has probably been one of the strangest years for smartphone launches in Canada. We saw some foldables, four new iPhones, possibly the latest Samsung Galaxy Note, a Huawei phone lacking the Play Store, and more. As usual, many phones that were launched in other markets did not make it here. With that said, this list looks at the best smartphones that were officially launched in Canada. To be clear, this isn't a gift guide to which phones you should buy, because in the case of the Z Fold 2, while it's probably the best Android smartphone I've ever used, it's definitely not for everyone due to its price. Samsung Samsung has three smartphones on the list this year, and it probably could have had more, including the Galaxy S20 FE and the Galaxy Z Flip. Samsung Galaxy S20 + Samsung's...

Leaker shows a quick photo comparison between the Galaxy S21 + and the iPhone 12 Pro

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 + series is reportedly only a month away, and so far, we've seen renders, live images, and even a video of the smartphones. Still, this latest leak shows a video comparison between it and the iPhone 12 Pro. YouTuber 'Random things 2 ' The video shows the design of the S21 +, including the large camera bump and flat screen. The video doesn't say much about the picture the phone takes, but in my opinion it seems that the S21 + doesn't offer as much contrast as the iPhone 12 Pro and that its colors are less accurate. That said, Random Stuff 2 only took one photo, so there's not much to say about the smartphone camera experience. The YouTuber also shot the first video footage of the phone, showi...

IPhone 12 review: the one you should buy

One thing is very clear about Apple's iPhone 12 lineup: The standard iPhone 12 is the device that most Apple users should consider buying if they are looking for a new iPhone. While this was also the case with last year's iPhone 11, updates Apple has made to the smartphone, including the new 6.1-inch / 5.4-inch OLED Super Retina XDR display on the iPhone 12 / iPhone 12 Mini, 5G capabilities. , its A14 processor and more equate to an impressive smartphone package. Except for the telephoto lens of the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, the light range and detection sensor (LiDAR), and a few other relatively minor technical differences, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are almost identical to the iPhone 12 Pro series. As expected, these updates also have a price increase, with last year's iPh...
