Apple's plan to transition to a new randomized serial number system seems to be in action starting with the iPhone 12 Purple edition that was recently launched in multiple countries. The changed serial numbers will now contain 8-14 randomly chosen alphanumeric characters (10 characters initially). It is believed that the change has been extended to iPhone 12 mini's Purple option as well.
