So, previous leaks had many operating on the assumption that Apple’s next-gen iPhone naming would go like this: 5.4-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. Now, there been a slight alteration if oft-reliable leaker “L0vetodream” has it right.
The names likely correspond to the three expected sizes of iPhone 12, with the 5.4-inch model being the iPhone 12 mini, the 6.7-inch model being the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the two 6.1-inch models being the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.

The iPhone 12 mini would be the first iPhone with the “mini” moniker, which has otherwise been seen on the iPad mini, Mac mini, and iPod mini.
MacDailyNews Take: “iPhone 12 mini.” The “mini” moniker does work with Apple’s naming strategies for iPod and Mac, so it’s certainly possible and, the iPhone would be rather “mini” smaller than the seminal iPhone X and the heretofore smallest ”Pro” iPhone, the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro.
Here’s how we’d name them:
• iPhone mini (2020)
• iPhone (2020)
• iPhone Pro (2020)
• iPhone Pro Max (2020)
or, better yet:
• 5.4-inch iPhone (2020)
• 6.1-inch iPhone (2020)
• 6.1-inch iPhone Pro (2020)
• 6.7-inch iPhone Pro (2020)
Regardless, we’ll know for sure soon enough (and we’ll be running to opposite end of the spectrum here for the first 6.7-inch iPhone).
