Apple iPhone 12, Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Lenovo Legion Phone, and OPPO Reno4 5G series forums are now open
Well, whew. Techtober is still at full steam, and we have started to see several exciting technology announcements in the last few weeks. Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup brings 5G to the mainstream and also brings several generational improvements over the previous iPhone 11 series. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro shows that the company can still manage to innovate despite the hardships they’re facing. We’ve just opened forums for the new iPhone 12 series — a first in XDA’s long history — as well as forums for the new Mate 40 Pro.
But that’s not all. We’ve also opened forums for the Lenovo Legion Duel, a gaming smartphone that’s uniquely designed to be held horizontally, and the OPPO Reno4 5G series, a trio of premium-looking, upper mid-range smartphones.
Apple iPhone 12 Series
I’ll address the elephant in the room first because I know that this will be pointed out in the comments. Yes, we now have forums for Apple devices, starting with the iPhone 12. While we’ve never been a site devoted to just Android (XDA is older than Android, after all), we’ve typically shied away from iPhone discussion because of Apple’s walled-garden approach to software and hardware. While that hasn’t changed, there is still a thriving community of iPhone jailbreakers. We’ve even seen devs boot Android on a jailbroken iPhone.
Now, flashing LineageOS on the iPhone 12 is a very long shot, but who knows what interesting developments will arise in the future? Not to mention, we’ve typically still opened forums for phones without an officially unlockable bootloader, because we feel it’s still worth providing a space for users to discuss tips, tricks, accessories, apps, and mods. There are more people browsing XDA from an iPhone than you might think, and if you’re one of them, you can check out the new iPhone 12 forums below for general device discussion.

As for the other devices, if you’re planning on getting a Mate 40 Pro, the Reno4 5G series, or the Lenovo Legion Duel, we have also opened forums for all of those devices. Whether you want to try and sideload Google apps on your Mate 40 Pro, potentially unlocking the bootloader of your shiny new Lenovo and modding it to hell and back, or install a Google Camera mod on your Reno4 Pro 5G, we have a space for you to talk about all of those things.
