The new iPhone range is releasing later than ever in SA this year. Usually, South Africans get their hands on the phone a week or two after it releases in the US but due to the ongoing pandemic and other logistic issues, this never happened. Thankfully, the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max is set to release in South Africa on 18 December 2020 and iStore has revealed how much these phones will cost in the country.
The iPhone 12 range starts at R15,999 for the mini and goes all the way up to R32,999 for the 512GB Pro Max model. iStore is also offering trade-in discounts for those who want to get rid of their older iPhone devices. For example, trading in an iPhone Xs Max 64GB can knock R10,000 off the total price of the iPhone 12 range.
