Size

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini

The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 is a successor to the iPhone 11. While the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is an all-new size and marks the smallest iPhone Apple has introduced since the 2016 iPhone SE. Aside from screen size and battery size, the two phones are technically identical. With its small size, the iPhone 12 mini will be ideal for those who prefer an iPhone that can be used one-handed.

Design and Display

OLED Display

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini Oled Display

All iPhone models this year feature Super Retina XDR OLED displays for the first time. With an edge-to-edge design with the exception of the Face ID notch and small bezels around the edge. Vastly more contrast. Incredible colour accuracy. A huge jump in pixel density. Wow. OLED delivers brighter brights, darker blacks and higher resolution for everything you look at. This is the best iPhone display they have ever made, and it goes all the way to the edge.

Resolution

The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini has a resolution of 2430 x 1080 with 476 pixels per inch . And the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 has a resolution of 2532 x 1170 with 460 pixels per inch. The displays offer HDR support with 1200 nits peak brightness, Wide Color for vivid, true-to-life colors.  Haptic Touch for feedback, and True Tone to match the color temperature of the display to the ambient lighting for a more natural viewing experience.

Look

Apple overhauled the design of the iPhone 12 lineup this year, introducing flat edges that are a departure from the rounded edges of prior models and are similar in design to the iPad Pro. The front of the iPhone is protected by a new Ceramic Shield cover that replaces the standard cover glass. Apple says the Ceramic Shield is infused with nano-ceramic crystals and offers 4x better drop performance.

The back of the iPhone continues to be made from glass, with the two halves of the device sandwiching an aerospace-grade aluminum enclosure .

Colors

There are some great new colours to choose from. Comes in five colors: blue, green, black, white, and (PRODUCT)RED.

5G Connectivity

All of the iPhone 12 models in this year’s lineup support 5G connectivity for faster downloads and uploads, better quality video streaming, improved gaming, and higher-definition 1080p FaceTime calls. 5G coverage is available worldwide, but only iPhone 12 devices sold in the United States support mmWave 5G, which is the fastest 5G technology available.

iPhone 12 models sold in other countries are limited to the slower but more widely available Sub-6GHz 5G connectivity. In the U.S., 5G speeds can be as high as 4Gbps, even in highly populated areas.

Gigabit LTE is supported when 5G isn’t available, and to preserve battery life when using 5G, a Smart Data Mode reverts to an LTE connection when 5G speeds aren’t necessary.

The iPhone 12 and 12 mini support WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, plus they include a U1 Ultra Wideband chip for spatial awareness and interactivity with other devices that include the U1 feature such as the HomePod mini.

A14 Bionic is the fastest chip in a smartphone.

There’s a new A14 chip inside the iPhone 12 models, and it is the first chip in the smartphone industry built on a 5-nanometer process for performance and efficiency improvements. Apple says the 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU in the A14 are 50 percent faster than the fastest competing smartphone chips. The A14 chip includes a 16-core Neural Engine that offers an 80 percent increase in performance for machine learning tasks.

Battery Life

The company is just including the USB-C-to-Lightning cable that you’ll use to charge the phone.

The iPhone 12 offers up to 17 hours of video playback, 11 hours of streaming video playback, or 65 hours of audio playback. The iPhone 12 mini offers up to 15 hours of video playback, 10 hours of streaming video playback, or 50 hours of audio playback. Both of the new iPhones offer fast charging, which provides a 50 percent charge in 30 minutes using a 20W power adapter. Fast-charging is available on the phone that can get the battery from zero to 50% in half an hour, but you’ll need to buy a separate 20W charger to be able to get that feature.

Apple has improved its wireless charging offering here. The big improvement is called MagSafe, which is essentially a magnet within the phone that allows you to attach a wireless charging pad to the device.

Why would it do that? It’s to make sure your phone doesn’t slip off of said charger and stop charging when you’re using it. 
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini

MagSafe charging seems to be faster than Qi wireless charging too. According to Apple’s website, MagSafe will use 15W charging, which Qi wireless charging on the iPhone 12 is limited to 7.5W.

The technology also allows accessory manufacturers to make in-car products, cases and more too.Apple says it’ll be creating its own accessories, but we can also expect to see new products from third-party manufacturers, with the company confirming that Belkin is working on accessories already.

Cameras

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini

The iPhone 12 and 12 mini have a simpler and less advanced dual-lens camera setup.There’s an f/2.4 Ultra Wide camera and a Wide camera that has a new f/1.6 aperture that lets in 27 percent more light for better performance in low-light conditions along with 2x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom.

Both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras now have Night mode — and it’s better than ever at capturing incredible low-light shots. The new Wide camera brings in 27% more light. So whether you take photos by day or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and colour that wasn’t possible before.

Night mode

night mode

Night Mode senses when light is low and kicks in automatically, maintaining clarity while capturing beautiful vibrant colour. All you have to do is start snapping. Photos that were once hard to capture — like a dramatic moonlit scene — now come out sharper than ever.

Deep Fusion

Deep Fusion in mid to low light, analyses multiple exposures to maximize detail. Check out the texture in the wood, fabric and crystal. And the Ultra Wide gets you a heroic perspective.

Smart HDR

Smart HDR 3 balances the elements in a shot, bringing out detail in the subject and trees while retaining the rich color of the sky — even at high noon.

Even in bright light, Smart HDR 3 is amazing at capturing texture, skin tone, color saturation and individual details that make photos feel true to life.

Portrait Mode

Portrait mode is even better at artfully blurring the background to put all the focus on your subject. Lovely, isn’t it?

Six creative lighting

Take great photos even further by choosing from six creative lighting effects, like High‑Key Light Mono, Natural Light and Studio Light.

Night mode selfies

You look amazing in dark.Night-time is the right time for a selfie. Because Night mode and a slew of other great features are now on the front camera. Like Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 3, Dolby Vision recording and more.

True Depth Camera

Speaking of the TrueDepth camera, it continues to enable the Face ID facial recognition biometric authentication feature in the iPhone, and it offers a 12-megapixel selfie camera. The selfie camera now supports Smart HDR 3, Deep Fusion, Night mode, and Night mode Portrait shots.

Video

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini

The iPhone 12 models can capture 30fps HDR video with Dolby Vision, enabling cinema-grade videos to be captured, edited, and shared right on the iPhone. It also supports 4K video recording at up to 60fps. There’s improved cinematic video stabilization and a Night mode Time-Lapse feature, along with Dolby Vision selfie videos using the TrueDepth camera.

How do you improve on the highest-quality video in a smartphone? Make it even better in low light — a full 27% better. That means no hour is off limits for more beautifully detailed video. Then there’s Night mode Time-lapse. Just prop up your iPhone and let the light trails begin.

Now you can record 4K HDR video with Dolby Vision. Edit in Photos or iMovie. Then zap it to your TV using AirPlay to see all that colour and detail. It’s a start-to-finish cinematic experience — found only on iPhone. Which comes in handy when your dog does something adorable.

First camera ever to record in Dolby Vision.

MagSafe Accessories-Beautifully stackable.

Apple introduced MagSafe accessories designed to work with a ring of magnets built into the back of the iPhones. There’s a MagSafe charger, MagSafe iPhone cases, and wallet accessories. MagSafe supports 15W wireless charging, an upgrade over the 7.5W charging available through standard Qi-based wireless chargers. The iPhone 12 models can also be charged using the Lightning port, which is unchanged.Snap on a new MagSafe case, wallet or both. Fear not, the wallet is shielded so it’s safe for credit cards.

MagSafe is a new ecosystem of accessories for easy attachment and faster wireless charging. With endless combinations, there is a mix to match any style.

MagSafe Accesories

Wireless

Let’s speed things up.iPhone 12 delivers 4G LTE at up to 2 Gbps. So you can download shows, upload photos and stream high-quality video even faster. And you can do it in more places, because iPhone 12 has up to 32 LTE bands — more than any other smartphone.

Water-resistant

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini

The iPhone 12 models offer IP68 water and dust resistance and can hold up to submersion in 6 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.

Eliminated the power adapter and EarPods

Apple eliminated the power adapter and EarPods from the iPhone 12 box, and these accessories must be purchased separately. All iPhone models now ship with a USB-C to Lightning cable by default, with Apple doing away with the USB-A version.

Across the iPhone family, they are removing the power adapter and EarPods that often go unused, but including the fast-charging USB‑C to Lightning cable that most people need. That shrinks packaging and more boxes per shipment means fewer shipments overall. They are also transitioning manufacturing partners to renewable energy. Altogether, this eliminates over 2 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually. Carbon savings equal to 4,50,000 fewer cars on the road per year.

Little things making a big deal!

Augmented reality

The power of A14 Bionic brings the latest AR experiences to life. Explore ancient relics, dissect a frog — even try out a new couch with AR Quick Look.

More shots, less lag

Snapping shots quickly? iPhone intelligently adapts, speeding up processing so you can capture all the action.

Dual Sim

Dual SIM with eSIM lets you have both a personal number and a business number on the same iPhone.

Spatial audio with Dolby Atmos

Sound moves around you in 3D space, so you feel like you’re inside the action.

Recycled rare earth in magnets

iPhone 12 uses 100% recycled
rare earth elements in all magnets, including those in our MagSafe accessories

Verdict

We’ve got you covered all the details of the iPhone 12 launch, including release date, new features, design changes and tech specs. Pretty much all the details of the launch leaked ahead of time, but the company still managed to put on an impressive and persuasive show.
