The iPhone 12 and 12 mini price and preorder deals on T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T or unlocked


Apple had a Verizon rep climbing on stage during its “Hi, Speed” iPhone 12 unveiling event, touting a great deal on the handset and its smaller iPhone mini sidekick that presumably start from $699, at least that was the only tag mentioned during the keynote. 

  • $699/$749/$849 on Verizon and AT&T, or $729/$779/$879 on T-Mobile and unlocked
What gives, Apple? The iPhone 12 mini is actually $729 when not tied to a Verizon or AT&T carrier network, and ditto for the iPhone 12 that can go all the way up to $979 for the 256GB model, almost as much as the iPhone 12 Pro.

The Apple iPhone 12 and 12 mini have the most 5G bands of any phone

That little factoid that Apple touts in the press release may be behind the more expensive iPhone 12 and 12 mini prices. After all, if you buy an iPhone on T-Mobile, Verizon, or AT&T, it only needs to support their peculiar low-, mod- or high-band mmWave 5G network, but the unlocked iPhone 12 has to support most global 5G frequencies. 

Those extra 5G antennas all around the phone, as well as the modem interference filters don’t come cheap, so what are the US carrier prices for the iPhone 12 and 12 mini then?

Apple iPhone 12/mini pricing, deals and availability on Verizon

With its cute mmWave 5G network, Verizon wasn’t really a contender in nationwide coverage compared to T-Mobile but it certainly made it up in speed. Now, however, together with the iPhone 12, it announced availability of its 5G Ultra Wideband service in 55 more cities, 43 stadiums and arenas, and seven airports, making its “5G Nationwide service” available to more than 200 million people in 1,800 cities in the US.

In short, Verizon  will be carrying the full suite of 5G iPhone 12s with preorders for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro beginning on October 16, availability on October 23. and iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini on November 6, with availability on November 13.
