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.

IFixit iPhone 12 Pro Max teardown reveals large camera module

I fix it has published his complete IPhone 12 Pro Max teardown: Before taking it down, the iPhone 12 Pro Max looked almost too big, but it turns out, could it be big enough? Until now, the iPhone 12 series has struggled to adapt to heavy 5G hardware, resulting in deep cuts in battery capacity, speakers, and even the Taptic engine.

Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max offers a minor camera update over the iPhone 12 Pro

That being said, it's important to note that unless you really like taking photos with your smartphone, the iPhone 12 Pro Max's minor camera updates over the iPhone 12 Pro are probably not worth their $ 1,549 price tag.The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max looks identical to its smaller 6.1-inch counterpart, including the grease-attracting stainless steel band that runs around its new flat edges. While I like the slightly faded 'gold' iPhone 12 Pro Max that Apple sent me, its almost shiny gold stainless steel edges are a bit too flashy for my liking. Fortunately, since I put all my smartphones in cases, this is not really a big concern for me. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is also available in the matte colors 'Graphite', 'Silver' and o...
