5G is just one of many new things that are going to be available to first-time owners of the "non-home-button" iPhones, which I suspect will be many owners of the Mini. Even in the last iPhone 12 series, there is a big notch for the selfie section which should be improved by Apple. That's less than ideal but, thankfully, YouTube seems to be pretty on the ball and gets the updates out relatively quickly. The Apple Watch Studio previous year let people virtually try out different combinations of straps, something a bit more fitting for a stylish wearable. Not that you'd know what to expect from the release notes! This is more than enough screen real-estate for most people when it comes to a smartphone and could make the iPhone 12 Pro Max's 6.7-inches feel like overkill. Apple the is expected to continue making iPhone 11 since it is performing well. With all this in mind, it remains unusual that Apple still still hasn't brought some form of multi-tasking to iOS, especially given the iPhone 12 Pro Max's expansive 6.7-inch screen would be ideal for it.
