ANCHORAGE, Alaska – GCI will offer iPhone 12 Pro Max, providing a reimagined pro camera and the largest display with the highest resolution ever on an iPhone, as well as the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, which packs the advanced technology of iPhone 12 into a delightfully compact size with an immersive edge-to-edge display. Both models support an advanced 5G experience. iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini are now available for order, with availability on November 13. For complete pricing and availability details, please visit GCI.com.

Featuring the most 5G bands on any smartphone, iPhone 12 models offer the broadest 5G coverage worldwide1 — with models in the US supporting millimeter wave, the higher frequency version of 5G. The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max2 pushes the boundaries of innovation for users who want the most out of iPhone, offering an all-new design with the largest display ever on an iPhone and the highest resolution at nearly 3.5 million pixels for a remarkable, true-to-life viewing experience. iPhone 12 Pro Max is available in four stunning stainless steel finishes — graphite, silver, gold and pacific blue — and introduces an immersive edge-to-edge Super Retina XDR display, industry-leading IP68 water resistance3, and the new Ceramic Shield front cover, which provides the biggest jump in durability ever on iPhone. A14 Bionic powers every experience on iPhone 12 Pro Max, and coupled with advanced camera systems, introduces meaningful new computational photography features like improved Night mode, Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 3, HDR video recording in Dolby Vision4, and more. 

iPhone 12 Pro Max customers will enjoy a reimagined pro camera system, including an Ultra Wide camera with 120-degree field of view and introducing a 65 mm focal length Telephoto camera. The new Wide camera is even better on iPhone 12 Pro Max with a larger sensor, bigger pixels, and new sensor-shift OIS for an 87 percent increase in low-light performance and incredible image stabilization to capture professional-quality images and video. Photographers gain even more creative control with the all-new Apple ProRAW5, and the new LiDAR Scanner brings more realistic AR experiences to iPhone 12 Pro Max, while also delivering improved autofocus in low-light and Night mode portraits. 

The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini6 brings a beautiful new design packed with powerful new capabilities. And, iPhone 12 mini is the smallest, thinnest, and lightest 5G smartphone in the world. Available in five beautiful aluminum finishes — blue, green, black, white, and (PRODUCT)RED7 — iPhone 12 mini packs all the technology of iPhone 12 into a delightfully compact size while still delivering an impressively large and immersive Super Retina XDR edge-to-edge display. iPhone 12 mini introduces the new Ceramic Shield front cover, tougher than any smartphone glass ever made8, and offers industry-leading IP68 water resistance. The same A14 Bionic chip in iPhone 12 Pro Max comes to iPhone 12 mini which, coupled with an advanced camera system, introduces meaningful new computational photography features including Smart HDR 3, Night mode and Deep Fusion on all cameras, the highest quality video in a smartphone, and more, while delivering great battery life. iPhone 12 mini also supports HDR video with Dolby Vision at 4K up to 30 fps and brings a powerful new dual-camera system with the expansive Ultra Wide camera and all-new f/1.6 Wide camera for a 27 percent improvement in low-light photos and videos.

iPhone 12 Pro Max, along with all iPhone 12 models, also introduces MagSafe, offering high-powered wireless charging and an all-new ecosystem of accessories that easily attach to iPhone.9
