The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Good: Pricing

Apple understands the world is facing a challenging time. They have clearly priced the iPhone 12 to reflect this and the introduction of the iPhone 12 Mini will be welcomed by those on tight budgets but want a new iPhone. What they have also done is lower the price of the iPhone 11. The iPhone 11 is now available from £599 brand new from Apple and other retailers such as Carphone Warehouse.

The not so bad: No headphones or charger?

Apple announced during its reveal of the iPhone 12 that the charging adapter and headphones will be removed from the box of all new iPhones. Because the saving has been passed on to the consumer, this is a win-win for Apple, the consumer, and the environment. The iPhone 12 will still come with a Lighting to USB-C charging cable in the box.

The ugly: Top Notch

Apple has done nothing to get rid of or reduce the size of the top notch. As beautiful as the new iPhone 12 range is, the top notch is ugly and users would prefer to have lost the notch instead of the charger and headphones.
