As Apple promised us during Keynote last month **, pre-orders for the two still new iPhone 12s are going to open today **. Soon we will be able to reserve our iPhone 12 mini or iPhone 12 Pro Max that should arrive, if we get one of the first units, next Friday.

Along with the reservation of the two “extremes” of the iPhone family this year, Apple will open the reservation of the HomePod mini. The new generation of the HomePod that, from what Apple has told us, the only thing that is reduced compared to the HomePod Classico is its size.

As is customary Apple has just closed the online store to prepare it for reservations and also perform maintenance tasks. It remains to be seen if, as some rumors indicated, Apple opens the reservation of the new iPad Air together with the aforementioned iPhone 12.

In Taiwan, where the reservation has already taken place from some operators, all units have been sold in less than 45 minutes. Surely Apple does not assign the same amount of iPhone to an operator as to its official website, but, nevertheless, if we want to receive our new iPhone as soon as possible it will be better to be punctual.
