Apple Inc. on Tuesday launched the iPhone 12 with faster 5G connectivity starting at US$799, which the Cupertino, California company hopes will spur a wave of upgrades and keep its sales booming through the end of the year.
The iPhone 12, with a 6.1-inch display, has flat sides with a flush display, similar to the company’s iPhone 5 and a departure from rounded edges in recent years.
