It’s no question that Apple has had a bumpy release schedule for their accessories. The most recent example of this is the release of the iPhone 12 cases and MagSafe accessories. Back in October 23rd, only the MagSafe Charger and Silicone and Clear cases were available alongside the devices. Unfortunately, other announced accessories where not available at this moment.
Surprisingly, thanks to a new press release, Apple has announced more details about the release of their iPhone 12 accessories, as well as release details about the iPhone 12 mini and Pro Max. However, newer accessories like the MagSafe Duo Charger and the Leather Sleeves still don’t have a date. This is somewhat worrying, as AirPower and other similar accessories have suffered similar delays.
“MagSafe accessories will be available from apple.com, in the Apple Store app, and in stores. Leather cases with MagSafe for all iPhone 12 models will be available to order beginning Friday, November 6. Leather sleeves and MagSafe Duo Charger will be available at a later date.”
On that same note, the press release also details the way customers will be able to buy the iPhone 12 mini and Pro Max, as well as the HomePod mini.
Customers in Australia, China, Germany, Japan, the UK, the US, and more than 40 other countries and regions will be able to pre-order iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini beginning at 5 a.m. PST on Friday, November 6, with availability beginning Friday, November 13. Customers in Colombia and Malaysia will be able to purchase the full iPhone 12 lineup, including iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, beginning Friday, November 13.
Customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Spain, the UK, and the US will be able to order HomePod mini online beginning at 5 a.m. PST on Friday, November 6, with availability beginning the week of November 16. HomePod mini will be available in China, Mexico, and Taiwan later this year.
