Pre-orders for the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the HomePod mini are set to begin on Friday, November 6 at 5:00 a.m. Pacific Time, which is the launch time that Apple has been using since last year.


Apple is planning to make the new devices available in multiple countries around the world simultaneously, so we've made a guide to let MacRumors readers know when pre-orders will in their country. Pre-orders are launching in more than 50 countries and regions.

Following pre-orders on November 6, the first ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ and 12 Pro Max shipments will arrive to customers on Friday, November 13.

Pricing on the ‌iPhone 12‌ mini starts at $729, though many U.S. carriers are offering a $30 discount that drops the price to Apple's advertised $699 price point. Pricing on the ‌iPhone 12 Pro‌ starts at $1099. Device payment plans and special deals are available through carriers, Apple Card Monthly Installments and Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program, plus device trade-ins are available.

HomePod mini pre-orders are launching in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Spain, the UK, and the US, and the HomePod mini will be arriving to customers the week of November 16. Apple is also making iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini cases available, as well as Leather Cases for all iPhone models.

How does it work?

Do you configure it on their site ahead of time with the options you want - then keep refreshing until finally, the 'Continue' button is available?

Or do you have to wait and start once the pre-order time has passed?

Is it better to try ordering through the Apple store app or the Apple website? Any tips to try to ensure a smooth and fast transaction?

Apple used to have me itching to buy the latest tech from them. But maybe everything got so good I just stopped wanting to upgrade it? Used to have the latest and greatest but now even old apple tech is just fine for me.

While iPhone 12 mini and Pro Max pre-orders are launching in more than 50 countries and regions on November 6, certain countries, such as Colombia and Malaysia won't be able to pre-order until November 13.

Correction: Malaysian can pre-order from Apple Store for all 4 models on November 6.

If you’re in the app, does it refresh itself when preorders go live, or do you need to close and reopen it?
I second this question.

I'm ready to use the app because I have a thousand gift cards I need to use on this purchase, and using the app appears to make this a lot easier since they're redeemed cards in my Wallet and not in my Apple ID balance. I also have an Apple ID balance, but that can be automatically applied everywhere.
