A quick check of launch day stock for iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini on Apple.ca shows stock is still available for select models for next week’s November 13 launch day.
iPhone 12 Pro Max
Pacific Blue in 128GB and 256GB are showing delivery dates of November 19-24, while 512GB is showing November 17-19 delivery.
Graphite and Gold have 128GB and 256GB showing delivery dates of November 19-24, while 512GB is showing still for November 13.
All Silver models are still showing as available for November 13.
iPhone 12 mini
White in 64GB and 128GB are still showing as November 13 delivery, while 256GB is showing November 17-19 delivery.
Black in 64GB and 128GB are still showing as November 13 delivery, while 256GB is showing November 17-19 delivery.
Blue, Green and (PRODUCT)RED in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB are all showing as in stock for November 13 delivery.
What can we deduce from these delivery dates? The buffer Apple set between iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini launches may have allowed it to produce more stock for today’s device launches. You could also say demand might be slightly down for iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini, if we’re still seeing initial stock still available right now. Maybe people are splurging less during a coronavirus pandemic?
It looks like Silver iPhone 12 Pro Max is not as popular as other colours, just like Blue, Green and Red iPhone 12 mini, as these models are showing as still available for November 13.
We’ll find out the numbers when Apple shares revenue from iPhone sales at its next quarterly earnings call set sometime in January 2021.
