iPhone 12 Lineup Rumored to Be Named 'iPhone 12 mini,' 'iPhone 12,' 'iPhone 12 Pro,' and 'iPhone 12 Pro Max'

Leaker known as "L0vetodream" has today shared the alleged naming for the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup on Twitter. The tweet proposes that the upcoming ‌iPhone 12‌ models will be titled "iPhone 12 mini," "‌iPhone 12‌," "‌iPhone 12‌ Pro," and "iPhone 12 Pro Max."

The names likely correspond to the three expected sizes of iPhone 12, with the 5.4-inch model being the ‌iPhone 12 mini‌, the 6.7-inch model being the ‌iPhone 12 Pro Max‌, and the two 6.1-inch models being the ‌iPhone 12‌ and ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro.

The naming of the "Pro" models follows the precedent established in previous years, and the speculated titles would be a logical naming system for the ‌iPhone 12‌ lineup. With there being four new iPhones in this year's lineup, the use of four different names would help to differentiate the models significantly.

The ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ would be the first iPhone with the "mini" moniker, which has otherwise been seen on the iPad mini, Mac mini, and iPod mini. At 5.4-inches, the ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ would earn its name being smaller than 2019's smallest ‌iPhone‌, the ‌iPhone‌ 11 Pro, which stands at 5.8-inches.

Hold it two inches closer to your face and it becomes a Pro Max.

I guess "Pro Pro" would have been too much, but "Pro Max" is spot on. /s
