You may have heard about the iPhone 12 lavender or purple edition either due to personal interest or you heard others talking about it. While from a pragmatic stance, it has nothing special in terms of hardware when compared to the regular versions of iPhones, it managed to stir up some interest.
Why is The Purple iPhone 12 so Popular?
For some, the purple color may seem too flashy or too invasive. It is a color that simply stands out. It would not make much sense for Apple to make a product in a deep purple and truth be told, they didn`t. The iPhone 12 lavender edition is not as purple as some would imagine it to be. Certainly, the official marketing material makes the purple look much more intense than it is in reality. If you get the chance for a hands-on experience, you will notice that the shade of purple used by Apple is toned down. It is a pleasant shade of purple.
Looking at the color options available for the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini, the purple version stands out. It is a color that has not been used by Apple before and it makes the smartphone special. For this reason, many Apple fans tried to get their hands on one. It feels like a special version of the iPhone 12 when in reality it is just another color option. That does not make it a much less desirable product. Since most Apple resellers struggle to have it in stock, the iPhone 12 lavender edition proved that you can stir up interest for a product if you design it properly and introduce uncommon colors for it.
If you are long due for an upgrade, the iPhone 12 lavender or purple edition, however you want to call it, is a good option. You should not upgrade if you are using the previous generation of iPhones but if you own something older than that, you should consider getting it.
On the other hand, the next generation of iPhones is just around the corner. There is a certain degree of fear of missing out on getting the purple iPhone 12 instead of waiting for the 13th generation. The differences in performance between generations are not that significant to justify waiting for the next generation and delaying an upgrade. At the same time, there is no guarantee that the next generation will launch with a purple color option.
The bottom line is that if you want to switch from Android to iOS or you are running with an iPhone that is 2 or 3 generations old, you should get the iPhone 12 lavender. It is a gorgeous device that performs well, has excellent cameras, and comes packed with plenty of features. Even if there is no option to get the iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max in purple, the standard purple edition is good enough since it uses the same hardware. Also, the purple version of the iPhone 12 Mini should not be disregarded. If you want the iPhone 12 lavender edition but in a more compact form factor, the Mini is still a viable choice.
