With the expected iPhone 12 reveal in mid-October fast approaching, we’ve been able to build a pretty detailed picture of what to expect from Apple’s upcoming flagship phones, including a hint we had about a few iPhone 12 Mini models. days ago.
We now have a second tipster suggesting that the Mini name will arrive on the iPhone line-up, via an image of published case stickers. on Twitter by user DuanRui (and incorporated below). You can see that the smaller 5.4-inch case mentions the name Mini.

What makes it slightly more plausible is that Apple already has a file iPad Mini is indeed a Mac Mini, so it wouldn’t be the first time the name is used. It could also help users differentiate between the four iPhone 12 models we think we’ll see next month.

Based on everything we’ve heard so far, besides the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 (Mini?), We’re also anticipating two 6.1-inch models: the iPhone 12 Max and the iPhone 12 Pro. Mini rumor is true, that Max model could simply be called the iPhone 12.
One of the differences between the two 6.1-inch models will be the camera setup, with the Pro model packing better optics and a LiDAR sensor for better depth sensing and augmented reality apps (like the iPad Pro). It might even have a top screen.
The top-of-the-line iPhone 12 would then be the 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max, which would be the largest and most capable of the four models. All are expected to run the same A14 Bionic chipset, as seen in the new iPad Air, so performance should be similar across the board.
It’s all a bit confusing, especially when the iPhone SE (2020) is also taken into account, but we’ll explain everything to you in full when Apple makes these phones official. We’re not sure when that will be yet, but October 13th seems like a good bet.
