Apple's latest flagship lineup includes four new devices altogether: the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Here's how all four iPhone 12 variants compare. With the various memory configurations, the phones range from $729 (£699, AU$1,199) to as much as $1,399 (£1,399, AU$2,369) off-contract, but all models have 5G connectivity, the A14 Bionic chip and multiple rear cameras.

Because of these latest devices, Apple reduced the prices of its older iPhone models that it still sells new. This includes the iPhone 11 from 2019 and the iPhone XR from 2018. The iPhone SE, which the company unveiled last April, is still the same price. Also keep in mind that while these iPhones launched with previous versions of iOS, all these devices are compatible with the latest iOS 14 software update.
