NEW DELHI: Earlier this week, Apple held its Spring Loaded event. The company introduced several new products at the event — including new iPads, Apple TV, Macs and more. The launches also include the company’s most-affordable device yet, AirTag and new Purple colour variants of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini — all these three devices are going on sale in India today.
Apple iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini Purple colour variants and AirTag pre-orders to start today
The Purple colour models of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini and AirTags will go on pre-order in India today (23 April) from 5.30pm onwards. The sale for the new colour variants will start from April 30 in the country. The customers can pre-order the device from Apple’s online store in India.
Along with the Purple iPhones, the newly-launched Bluetooth tracker from Apple, AirTag, too will be available for pre-order starting today. The customers will be able to pre-order Apple AirTag starting at 5.30pm today. The device will go on sale from 30 April.
Price: iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini
The pricing and specifications of both the smartphones remains unchanged. The duo will be available at Rs 79,900 and Rs 69,900 onwards. The storage models too remain the same, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Other than India, people in China, US, UK and over 25 other countries will be able to pre-order these smartphones starting today.

Apple has priced AirTag at Rs 3,190. For those who may be interested in more than one AirTag, the company is offering a pack of 4 at Rs 10,900.
Specifications: iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini
“This new colour beautifully accentuates the flat aluminum edges of iPhone 12 which are perfectly colour-matched to the precision-milled back glass,” said the company about the new colour options.
Like the price, all specifications of both phones remain the same. The duo come with Ceramic Shield front cover, that Apple claims provides the biggest jump in durability ever on iPhone. iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini run on the company’s own A14 Bionic processor.
Both the models feature an advanced dual-camera system that claims to deliver powerful computational photography features and the highest-quality video in a smartphone, with expansive edge-to-edge Super Retina XDR displays with OLED. Apple iPhone 12 has a 6.1-inch screen, while iPhone 12 mini sports a 5.4-inch display.
Features: Apple AirTag
AirTag can be attached to a handbag, keys, backpack, or other items. Each AirTag is small and lightweight and comes in a round design with a removable cover and replaceable battery. Customers can personalise AirTag with free engraving, including text and a selection of 31 emoji, when purchasing. The AirTag houses a built-in speaker that plays a sound to help users find its location. It is also IP67 rated making it both water- and dust-resistant.
