It’s been out for a Month: What We Know about the iPhone 12

As you may already know, the iPhone 12 was released on October 23rd. It’s still super expensive but Apple is saying that the iPhone 12 is supposed to be the best one yet, we shall see!

Of course Apple didn’t only make the Iphone 12…as a matter of fact, they made four different versions, the iPhone 12, 12 pro, 12 mini, and 12 Pro max. All of the phones have the new A14 neutral engine bionic chip.

As stated in, this bionic chip can handle 11 trillion operations per second and is faster than any other smartphone chip. Digital Trends reported that the phones also have MagSafe Wireless Charging which Apple has previously used in their Macbook chargers. All of the iPhone 12 models are the first to have 5G connectivity with Apple, however most Android phones over $500 already have 5G connectivity.

Let’s talk about pricing! 

The most affordable of the four versions is the iPhone 12 mini which starts at $699 according to Apple, while the iPhone 12 costs $799. Next we have some of the two most expensive smartphones on the market, the iPhone 12 Pro, which costs $999, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which costs $1100. Are these new phones even worth the money? I say that the models are worth the money because they have 5G connectivity, A14 bionic chip, and faster auto-focusing when it comes to the camera. Also, when you think about how much time you spend daily using your phone,  especially for a teenager, you’re basically using it all the time. So, I think the quality of the phone matters a lot, and so far these phones have Apple’s best qualities.

Camera and Display

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is Apple’s biggest phone and its screen size is a whopping 6.7 inches (diagonal). iPhone 12 mini is the smallest model of the new iPhone 12s, with a screen size of 5.8 inches (diagonal). The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro screen sizes are both 6.1inches (diagonal). All of the models have the new Super Retina XDR display, as mentioned by, it offers improved display brightness and naturality of color and images.

According to Digital Trends, the colors of the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max come in are Pacific Blue, Gold, Graphite, and Silver. The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini come in Blue, Green, Red, White, and Black. Also, the sides of the iPhone 12s are now flat instead of curved like they were before, the sides look similar to the iPhone 5 and iPhone SE (1st Generation).

One of the most popular new camera features on the iPhone 12 models are the Dolby Vision HDR video recording up to 30 frames per second. The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max now have the new night mode portraits. Photographers will definitely benefit from the new Apple ProRAW feature for the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. According to Apple Insider, the Apple ProRAW combines their previously used features, Deep Fusion and Smart HDR, to make the camera quality excellent! 

The iPhone 12s are very different from all of the previous Apple phones. This phone is going to be a huge success for Apple and a leap forward for smartphones in general. If I could purchase an iPhone 12, I would most likely get the iPhone 12 Pro Max because it is the best out of the four models.
