It's already November 13 in Australia, New Zealand, and countries in Asia which means iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max launch day has officially kicked off.

Customers in New Zealand and Australia are always the first to get their hands on new devices due to time zone differences, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max and 12 mini are arriving to those who preordered on November 6.

New devices photos and videos are popping up across the web on Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, the MacRumors forums, and more.


Because there are no Apple Stores in New Zealand, customers in Australia are the first to be able to purchase one of the new models in an Apple retail location. Available in-store stock in Australia will give us an idea of what we can expect in other Apple Stores worldwide.


iPhone 12 Pro Max orders placed now aren't delivering until December for the most part, but iPhone 12 mini orders will arrive before the end of November. Still, those who don't want to wait may prefer to pick up an order in store tomorrow.


Following New Zealand and Australia, ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ and 12 Pro Max sales will begin in the Middle East, Europe, and then North America. ‌Apple Stores‌ globally are opening up right around 8:00 a.m. local time to allow customers to pick up reserved devices and make walk-in purchases.


Make sure to stay tuned to MacRumors tomorrow and throughout next week, because we'll have plenty of iPhone 12 mini‌ and 12 Pro Max coverage that includes a hands-on and some in-depth camera comparisons.

I'm very excited but also nervous UPS is going to screw up my 12 Mini delivery tomorrow because my office building is confusing (multiple street addresses and floors). First time getting an iPhone delivered instead of picking up in a store :oops:

Can confirm. iPhone 12 Pro Max delivered to my door at bang-on 9:35 this morning. I’m writing this post on it now
Congrats! I got mine this morning too! However I’m noticing a blue shift on my display when even tilting it slightly down. This doesn’t happen on my 11 Pro Max.

Are you noticing a blue shift when tilting the display or degraded viewing angles sooner than expected?

Only a very *slight* blue shift, and I have to have a viewing angle of 45 degrees or more to see it. I wouldn’t even have noticed it if I hadn’t been looking for it.

Mine was processing till today. It actually shipped on the 8th. They are not good with the updates this time. So far behind. Waiting for my plain Jane Graphite MAX.
Odd. My card hasn't even been charged yet though...

LOL. I think you forgot over half of the world's population (Asia) that gets it right after ANZ, before the Middle East. Hoping my Pro Max delivers in the next couple of hours here in Singapore...

No where here carries the 512gb iPhones this year for some bizarre reason so...
‘I’m not sure when I’ll get mine.
couldnt preorder it, and no where even has the option for it for even the regular 12/pro that released a month ago
