In the autumn of 2020, Apple will release its newest flagship model, the iPhone 12. Four handsets in the iPhone 12 series, with screens ranging from 5.4 to 6.7 inches, are equipped with flagship features including a 5G connection, OLED displays, and more.
5G and A14
Support for a 5G connection is one of the key features of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. The only country that supports mmWave 5G is the United States, while other nations as well as the U.S. also support sub-6GHz 5G.
The new A14 Bionic CPU, which employs a new 5-nanometer technology to minimize transistor size, also powers the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. The new six-core CPU, according to Apple, is up to 50% quicker than any other smartphone. The new 4-core GPU in the iPhone 12 is up to 50% quicker than that of the rivals.
Display and Design
The sides of the iPhone 12 are made of metal and have flat edges. While the iPhone 12 has a 6.1-inch display, the iPhone 12 small has a 5.4-inch screen. The 2020 iPhone is 15% lower in volume and 11% thinner than the iPhone 11. With the adoption of OLED screens across the board by Apple, contrast and brightness have increased compared to the LCD-screen iPhone 11 model from a year ago.
Super Retina XDR screen with “Ceramic Shield” cover for greater durability and 4x better drop performance makes up the actual display. With 460 pixels per inch, the iPhone 12’s display has a resolution of 2532x 1770 pixels. The resolution of the small display is 2340 by 1080 or 476 pixels per inch.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini both include a dual camera system with wide and ultra-wide lenses, as well as an upgraded Smart HDR and Night mode that for the first time supports the front camera and the ultra-wide lens. The iPhone 12 also has a brand-new Night mode Time-lapse capability.

Price and availability
With special agreements struck by Apple with Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon, the iPhone 12 small and iPhone 12 are now available for $699 and $799, respectively. You’ll spend $729 for the iPhone 12 small and $829 for the iPhone 12 if you’re purchasing for any other network or purchasing the unlocked version. The price has increased by $30 depending on your carrier. The iPhone 12 was introduced on October 23, 2020, and the iPhone 12 mini on November 13, 2020.
Apple iPhone 12 Pro Design
With glass and stainless steel borders, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are premium smartphones. The screen size of the iPhone 12 Pro is 6.1 inches, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen. Despite having bigger screens, Apple claims that the larger iPhone 12 Pro devices’ form factors are “almost the same” as those of the smaller iPhone 11 Pro models they replace. The iPhone 12 Pro’s frame is constructed from stainless steel, which comes in four distinct finishes and is strong and glossy.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 vary from one another in terms of their camera technology, as has been standard over the last several years. With a telephoto lens, an ultra-wide lens, and a wide lens, the iPhone 12 Pro has a triple-lens camera arrangement on the rear. According to Apple, the new wide camera has the quickest aperture ever on an iPhone, resulting in a 27 percent improvement in low-light performance in both photos and videos.
Apple claims that the ultra wide’s 120-degree field of vision is even better for taking pictures of large landscapes. An even bigger wide camera sensor on the iPhone 12 Pro Max results in an 87 percent boost in low-light shooting. According to Apple, the Ultra Wide and Telephoto lens systems together provide a 5x optical zoom capability.
Additionally, you receive the same software upgrades as the iPhone 12 with enhanced Smart HDR and Night mode, Dolby Vision video recording, 10-bit HDR video recording, and more. Finally, the rear of both gadgets has a brand-new LiDAR scanner. The LiDAR Scanner provides AR features, scanning of objects and rooms, and other functions. The LiDAR Scanner also helps to increase capture speed and low-light autofocus.
Pacific blue, graphite, silver, and gold are the four hues that are offered for both devices.
Price and availability
The price of the iPhone 12 Pro ranges from $999 for 128GB of storage to $1,099 for 256GB and $1,299 for 512GB. For the same storage choices, the iPhone 12 Pro Max costs $1,099, $1,199, and $1,399 respectively. The Pro and Pro Max were both launched in 2020 on October 23 and November 13, respectively.
