As we get closer to the rumored iPhone 12 release date on Wednesday, September 30, more leaks about the upcoming smartphone continue to spread across the web.

The recent rumor for the iPhone 12 series is that the smallest iPhone 12 size is rumored to be called the 'iPhone 12 mini.' A potential leak is the magnetic wireless charger prototype that could be a new feature included in the iPhone 12 series.

Let's uncover the details in the next section.

The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini

Renowned Apple leaker @L0vetodream shared earlier today a tweet that hints at the potential updated iPhone 12 series line up. The tweet reveals the "iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro [and] iPhone 12 Pro Max."

Expected to be announced by the end of October, the iPhone 12s' iPhone 12 mini is rumored to have a "narrower notch" than other iPhone models.

Previous rumors predicted the iPhone 12 line-up to include the 5.4-inch iPhone 11, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Each size is predicted to have 5G connectivity support with OLED displays and sporting Apple's new A14 Bionic chip seen in the upcoming fourth-generation iPad Air.

If Apple decides to use the 'iPhone 12 mini' name, the iPhone mini will be the first smartphone 'mini' in the big tech company's collection.

The 'Pro' nicknames are based on the iPhone 11 series that features the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. These Pro options would meet consumers' needs for wanting a bigger display to use and view.

Potential iPhone 12 Magnetic Wireless Charger

While the iPhone 12s are rumored to not be shipped with earbuds nor a charger, the iPhone 12s could get a charger upgrade with magnetic wireless charging capabilities.

A recent YouTube video shows a "magnetic wireless charger prototype" from the video titled, 'Suspected Prototype Apple iPhone 12 Magnetic Wireless Charger Video Leaked.'

Although the details are not confirmed and the video does not have as much engagement as expected, the prototype does have similarities to the Qi-wireless charging design in other iPhones.

Despite the potential wireless charging upgrade, there are no confirmations about how the charger could be used and the integration into the iPhone 12s. Previous rumors showed magnet rings for the iPhone 12 design sketch.

If Apple does include this new magnetic wireless charger to the iPhone 12s, users won't need to manually align their iPhones to the wireless charging platform. Instead, the magnetic component in the iPhone will automatically align the two devices together for the users.
