The purple iPhone 12 has created a lot of hype and media outlets covered it extensively. While there is a lot to talk about, there are only a few things that you need to know. If you want to get the purple iPhone 12, carriers and retailers have it on offer but stocks are limited.

The Color

The best thing that you can do if you want to get a purple iPhone 12 is to have hands-on experience. Just walk into a shop that has it on display and check the color. What you've seen in photos and videos online is not the same as what you will see in reality. That deep purple is much toned down and less in your face. It is a much more pleasant color in reality if you fancy something less obnoxious. There are purple iPhone 12 retailers that you can check out for yourself before pulling the trigger and purchasing the device.

The Hardware

Despite what some Apple enthusiasts and experts would have predicted, the purple iPhone 12 is not a mid-cycle refresh. Besides the color, there is nothing new in terms of hardware. It did come with new updates for iOS which are always welcomed but the bottom line is that Apple decided to stick with the same hardware and just release a new set of colors for the iPhone 12.


For the 12th generation of iPhones, Apple released 4 versions. There is the iPhone 12 Mini, the standard iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. All of them get the same hardware but have some slight variations in terms of cameras. The most notable difference between them is the internal storage options they come with, battery and RAM.

The colors options available for this generation of iPhones are different depending on which iPhone you get. To put it simply, the iPhone 12 Mini and standard iPhone 12 get a certain set of colors while the iPhone 12 Pro and the Pro Max get a completely different set of colors. If you want a purple iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max, you are out of luck as Apple does not make these two in purple.

Which One Should You Get?

There are only two reasons for which you would get the purple iPhone 12 Mini: You either have a limited budget or want a small smartphone that fits well in one hand.

The bottom line is that the standard version of the iPhone 12 will cater to more people and is the go-to purple version of the iPhone. The iPhone carriers and retails offer can vary in pricing and depending on how much you are willing to pay on your monthly subscription, you can get it with a considerable discount with a subscription and iPhone combo.
