What you need to know

  • Good Morning America got its hands on the new iPhone lineup.
  • They showed off the blue iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
  • They also showed off how the new MagSafe wallet attaches to the iPhone.

Good Morning America became one of the first outlets in the world to get hands-on with Apple's new iPhone 12 lineup and MagSafe accessories and posted a video to YouTube today to show off the latest from Apple.

Becky Worley, ABC's Technology & Consumer Contributor, had the blue versions of both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro in hand, as well as one of Apple's new MagSafe leather wallet accessories. You don't see too much in the video, but she does show off the finish differences between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro and its impact on the kind of blue you see on the phone. She also demonstrates how the new wallet accessory snaps on to the back of the iPhone 12.

Worley also sat down virtually with Kaiann Drance, Apple's Vice President of iPhone Marketing. When asked about Apple's decision to remove the wall charger and EarPods from the box of the iPhone, Drance stressed how much value people were getting in the iPhone itself as well as the fact that Apple believes most people already have the accessories it would ship in the box. Drance also highlighted the company's environmental efforts as a reason to remove the accessories.

"There is so much in the phone already ... people often already have all that and it's sitting around in .. their house. It was not the right thing to do in terms of the larger environmental goals."
