在HomePod mini上采用了苹果此前在Apple Watch上使用的S5处理器，并且搭载一个全频的驱动单元，而苹果通过独特的设计与优秀的算法，使其可以实现360度的环绕输出，并且可以与其他的HomePod mini组成阵列。
而在今年晚些时候，此前在iPhone11系列发布的U1超频宽芯片终于有了用处。其在功能更新后，可以在iPhone靠近并且指向HomePod mini的时候，由HomePod mini继续流媒体的播放，并且得到一系列的反馈。
在HomePod mini之后，苹果发布了旗下全新的iPhone 12系列手机。首先是iPhone12与iPhone 12 mini，其外观回归到类似iPhone4的直边设计，采用苹果称为超瓷晶的新玻璃面板材料与铝合金中框的组合，拥有黑色、白色、蓝色、绿色、红色一共五个配色。
而在iPhone12上采用了6.1英寸的OLED 屏幕，而在iPhone 12mini上采用了5.4英寸的OLED 屏幕。并且因为采用全面屏的设计，5.4英寸的iPhone12mini相比较于此前苹果推出的4.7英寸手机，在体积上显得更加小。
在性能上两者均采用了A14处理器，集成 118 亿个晶体管，CPU 采用更为强大的全新六核设计，与 A12 仿生芯片相比性能提升 40%。
在摄像系统上用了全新的双摄系统，主摄达到F1.6的大光圈，像素为1200W,并且有效进光量提升了27%,达到更好的摄像效果。而在iPhone 12及iPhone12mini上还有进一步升级的智能HDR 3，可以通过机器学习更加有效的识别画面，提升画面成像素质。
最终iPhone 12与iPhone 12mini除了在屏幕大小有所区别外，其他功能并没有差异。而国内售价iPhone12mini为5299元起（64GB），iPhone12为6299元起（64GB），此两款机型提供了64GB、128GB、256GB的选择。
在这两款机型发布后，苹果发布了iPhone 12 Pro与iPhone 12 ProMax。而在外观上，这两款机型相比较于上文提到的iPhone12与12mini，中框由铝合金升级为不锈钢。而大小上，iPhone 12Pro为6.1英寸，而iPhone 12ProMax为6.7英寸。
iPhone 12Pro Max则采用了从13毫米焦段超广角镜头到65毫米焦段人像镜头的5倍光学变焦。
并且让人惊讶的是，苹果居然在iPhone 12ProMax上使用了只有高端相机才会使用的传感器移动技术，通过传感器本身移动进行防抖而不是通过镜头移动进行防抖，而根据苹果官方的说法，iPhone 12Pro Max的改进，可以使低光的进光量提高87%。并且iPhone 12ProMax的传感器还增加了47%的有效面积，达到了1.7微米的像素大小。
在iPhone 12Pro与iPhone 12ProMax上，苹果为其打造了全新的Apple ProRAW格式，根据苹果的说法，这个格式可以有效的保留色彩信息，获得更好的成像效果，并且能够被iPhone进行快速的处理。而苹果也将开放此API为第三方应用所使用。这对于使用iPhone 12Pro与iPhone 12ProMax的用户可有福了。
在此之外，iPhone 12Pro与iPhone 12ProMax还加入了LiDAR传感器，根据苹果官方的说法，其能够扫描周围的物体，并且在夜晚拍摄时辅助进行更好的对焦，最高速度提升接近6倍。
iPhone 12Pro与iPhone 12ProMax也同样支持iPhone 12所具有的特性，比如A14处理器、5G的支持等等。这两部手机拥有黑、蓝、白、金四个配色，国内方面iPhone 12 Pro 售价8499元起（128GB）、iPhone 12ProMax售价9299元起（128GB），配置方面拥有128GB/256GB/512GB可选。
首先iPhone12一代的四款机型都加入了对于5G的支持，并且全系使用OLED 屏幕，特别是在5.4英寸的iPhone12 mini上，做到了全世界最轻薄的5G手机。为许多对用户提供了新的选择，并且补上了之前iPhone不支持5G的槽点。
再者，此次iPhone 121全系都对摄像系统就行了进一步的升级，特别是iPhone 12ProMax，其采用了全新的防抖技术，通过移动传感器而非移动摄像头，带来了更好的效果，而最关键的是，iPhone 12Pro与iPhone 12ProMax支持苹果全新的Apple ProRAW，可以更加好的记录色彩信息，进行更好的创作。
而支持杜比视界HDR视频的拍摄可谓是这场发布会的应该神来之笔，苹果通过硬实力向外界展示了其技术功底，用一部手机完成了众多相机无法完成的操作。也许也是为有力回击市场对其摄像方面“看衰”的一个手段。但是无论如何，这个功能在手机上得以实现确实是非常震撼。也为我们打开了创作的另一种可能。并且提供查阅苹果官网消息，iPhone 12与iPhone 12mini也支持杜比视界HDR的拍摄，不过其帧数只能达到30帧而Pro与ProMax机型可以达到60帧的杜比视界HDR视频拍摄。
China's largest online shopping spree gets greener******视频加载中，请稍候... play向前 向后
-- With the 13th China's Singles' Day approaching, the retail presales are looking impressive.
-- The annual event quickly grew into a major shopping spree.
-- The festival is no longer simply a consumption extravaganza but also a platform for promoting the concept of building a better life.
HANGZHOU, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- With the 13th China's Singles' Day approaching, the retail presales are looking impressive, as are the event's support for green consumption and the healthy development of e-commerce platforms.
The annual event, which falls on Thursday, was first started by Alibaba's e-commerce platform on Nov. 11, 2009, and quickly grew into a major shopping spree. However, it now carries additional connotations, thanks to enterprises' growing awareness of social responsibility and the country's detailed regulatory policies.
Also known as Double Eleven, the festival is no longer simply a consumption extravaganza but also a platform for promoting the concept of building a better life, according to Chris Tung, chief marketing officer at Alibaba Group.

"Here we want to convey ideas. What is deemed a good life, and what kind of actions are worthy of common aspirations. In addition to benefits, convenience and quality, we also hope to make long-term thinking that is more in line with the needs of social development and assume more corporate responsibilities," Tung said.
This year marks the largest Singles' Day shopping festival on Tmall, with a record 290,000 brands participating and more than 14 million varieties of commodities offering discounts, according to the company. However, instead of simply luring consumers to sweep up the goods, the company has started encouraging them to shop "greener."
At 1:00 a.m. on Nov. 1, an hour into Tmall's first three-day discount period, over 25,000 water-saving flush toilets were swept away.
"If each toilet is used five times per day on average, then 225 tonnes of water can be saved in a day," said the company.
Tmall plans to issue 100 million yuan (about 17.2 million U.S. dollars) of green vouchers this year, encouraging consumers to buy energy-efficient home appliances and products with "green" certificates, as part of the efforts to support the country's carbon-reduction goals.
Besides, 60,000 courier stations under Alibaba's logistics arm Cainiao Network have prepared 7.5 million eggs as a reward for consumers recycling the parcel boxes.

"I have recycled 11 parcel boxes during this year's Singles' Day shopping spree, and the reward makes me feel encouraged and proud that I can make my own contribution to saving energy," said a resident in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province.
E-commerce giant JD.com has also joined the "low carbon" campaign, developing recyclable packaging, deploying new-energy cargo vans and adopting photovoltaic power generation in warehousing.
"E-commerce platforms have a natural advantage in promoting green consumption, and they can help establish a full green supply chain," said Jin Min, a professor with the Renmin University of China, adding that the Double Eleven shopping spree can help leverage the huge green consumer market.
SAFER ONLINE ECONOMY
The past 12 years have witnessed countless new online shopping records set during the Double Eleven. However, much attention has also been given to sellers infringing consumer rights, with consumers calling for stronger oversight of the industry.
On Nov. 6, the country's State Administration for Market Regulation released a guideline on regulating e-commerce platforms' marketing activities and cracking down on violations related to the Singles' Day shopping spree.

Misconduct such as making false claims on discounts, exaggerating the efficacy of products, manipulating sales figures and comments, as well as selling counterfeit products, are all strictly forbidden, according to the guideline.
"The guideline will ensure e-commerce platforms and merchants are clear about the red lines, so that the consumer market can run smoothly," said Liu Fujun, general manager of a network technology company based in Beijing, which has been analyzing big data on Double Eleven.
In response, Chinese online retail platform Suning launched a "fixed price" sales promotion in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality. On Nov. 11, commodities at the designated outlet will be on sale, with no complicated rules such as presales or add-on items.

According to Hu Qimu, chief researcher at Tianyi Digital Economy Institute, stricter supervision will not dampen the vitality of the consumer market, but will contribute to the industry's healthy development, so that society can better enjoy the dividends it generates.
Official data shows that retail sales of consumer goods, a pivotal part of the internal economic circulation, went up 16.4 percent year on year in the first three quarters this year, with online retail sales surging 18.5 percent.
This year's Singles' Day shopping spree is expected to invigorate the consumer market and promote consumption upgrading, said Li Zhengbo, an expert with the China International Electronic Commerce Center, under the Ministry of Commerce.

Lawmaker calls for block on Instagram after Meta allows hate speech against Russians******
Russia on Friday condemned Meta Platforms' move to temporarily lift a ban on calls for violence against the Russian military and leadership, and an influential parliamentarian called for Instagram to be blocked in Russia.
In a temporary change to its hate speech policy, Meta Platforms will allow Facebook and Instagram users in some countries to call for violence against Russians and Russian soldiers in the context of the Ukraine conflict, according to internal e-mails seen by Reuters.
"Meta's aggressive and criminal policy leading to incitement of hatred and hostility toward Russians is outrageous," the Russian embassy in Washington said in a statement on Friday.
"The company's actions are yet another evidence of the information war without rules declared on our country," it said.
A Meta spokesperson confirmed it had temporarily eased its rules for political speech, allowing posts such as "death to the Russian invaders," although it would not allow calls for violence against Russian civilians.
Internal e-mails seen by Reuters showed it had also temporarily allowed posts that call for death to Russian President Vladimir Putin or Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
Alexander Khinshtein, the head of the information policy and IT committee at the State Duma, Russia's lower house of parliament, said the Duma would appeal to the Russian prosecutor general's office and Investigative Committee over the move. It was not clear what action it expected those bodies to take.
"If this is true, then of course Instagram should be blocked in Russia after Facebook," he said.
Facebook and Instagram are both owned by Meta. Last week, Russia said it was banning Facebook in the country in response to what it said were restrictions of access to Russian media on the platform.
"They should think about how they are using these platforms. They incite hatred, and even more, they call for the murder of Russian citizens," Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said in a post on VKontakte, Russia's answer to Facebook.
