iPhone 12 Making Splash on Phone Market

Fans of Apple products were excited when they released the iPhone 12 in November. If you’re considering purchasing this phone, here are all the details and features you need to know about it.

Models and Pricing

The iPhone 12 comes in 4 distinct models with five different colors to choose from. The base model is the regular iPhone 12, which has a 6.1-inch OLED display and two back cameras. This model costs around $829.00-$979.00 depending on which storage option you choose. The smaller counterpart of the 12 is the iPhone 12 mini. It has everything the iPhone 12 has, except it has a 5.4-inch OLED display and costs around $729.00-$879.00, varying on the type of storage option you choose.

There are also two other Pro models for people who want to enhance their experience with a faster device. The regular iPhone 12 pro has a 6.1-inch OLED display and has three back cameras with a LIDAR sensor and costs around $999.00-$1,299.00.

The larger version of the iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 12 Pro Max, has everything the iPhone 12 Pro has. The only difference is that it has a huge whopping display of 6.7-inches for people with bigger hands. This model costs around $1,099.00-$1,399.00 based on storage options

Screen Features

Let’s get down to the important specs and features. First up, we have the display resolution for the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro which has a 2532 x 1170 resolution with 460 pixels per inch. The smaller iPhone 12 mini has a 2340 x 1080 resolution with 476 pixels per inch. The Large iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 2778 x 1284 resolution with roughly 459 pixels per inch.

There will also be a new “Super Retina XDR display” with “Ceramic Shield” technology to make the phone more durable. The iPhone 12 has the same 6.1-inch display as the iPhone 11 but has reduced display borders to create a much smaller iPhone.

 5G Features

The iPhone 12’s new antenna design wraps around the frame and is optimized for the latest 5G technology. 5G is a huge new feature that is now finally available on all the iPhone 12 models. 5G promises lower latency, faster speeds, and greater load capacity. Some researchers believe that in real-world conditions, 5G could deliver browsing and download speeds 10 to 20 times faster than the 4G network. This allows the iPhone to do so much more than it could last year. Apple also made a 5G smart mode so that when you’re running low on battery, it switches back to LTE so you can save battery.

Camera Features

The regular iPhone 12 model has two 12-megapixel lenses for different wide angles, both being capable of capturing images and videos in 4k HDR quality with DolbyVision.


Telephoto Lens:  The iPhone 12 Pro features a telephoto camera for distant objects, which is missing on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini models. The telephoto camera comes with an f/2.0 aperture with a 52mm focal length.

LIDAR scanner:  Another feature only the pro models have is the LIDAR scanner. LIDAR uses lasers to ping off objects and returns to the laser’s source, measuring distance by timing the travel, or flight, of the light pulse. LIDAR could enhance Augmented Reality, simulate placing objects in a room, and make the camera better by making it able to take portrait photos at night with its depth-sensing technology. LIDAR is similar to the face ID technology, except it has a longer range

A14 Bionic Chip:  The new A14 Bionic chip/processor includes dedicated neural network hardware that Apple calls a new 16-core Neural Engine. A14 Bionic is the fastest chip in a smartphone. A14 is designed to improve performance and save battery life. The new six-core processor has four high-efficiency cores and two high-performance cores. In addition to that, it also pushes what’s possible, like crunching trillions of operations on the Neural Engine. Or shooting in Dolby Vision, even pro movie cameras can’t do that. It’s superefficient for great battery life. And it’s ahead of its time, prepared to power pretty much anything that comes next.

Battery Features

One of the downsides of the iPhone 12, 12 mini, and 12 Pro is that it has less battery life than the iPhone 11. In addition to The iPhone 12’s 5G technology that kind of drains the battery, It sort of creates a problem for the iPhone 12, But I guess the A14 bionic chip sort of makes up for it since it helps save and utilize the battery life.

MagSafe:  The iPhone 12 models have a built-in MagSafe adapter compatible with Apple’s new MagSafe charger for the iPhone 12 models only. Apple and other third-party sellers have created MagSafe accessories for their users.

How MagSafe works:  MagSafe is basically a magnet built into the back of an iPhone which can be used for charging and accessory use. MagSafe charging is like wireless charging, except there’s a magnetic puck that you snap onto the back of your phone so that you don’t have to worry about misplacing your phone on the charger.

MagSafe Accessories :  There are many other ways you can utilize the MagSafe feature, such as magnetic wallet attachments, MagSafe battery phone cases, and so much more. MagSafe allows other companies another opportunity to manufacture a new kind of accessory compatible with MagSafe. Overall MagSafe is, what I think to be one of the greatest new features of the iPhone 12.

Opinions on the iPhone 12

I’ve asked some of my friends what they thought about the new iPhone 12. One of my friends is a diehard Apple fan, and the other is a Samsung/Android user. I’m just letting you know that my friends are very biased and will do anything to defend their point. I will also give my opinion on it since I, myself, own an iPhone 12; therefore, I’ll give you a buyer’s review on it.

Apple User

Q: What are your initial thoughts on the iPhone 12 releasing this year?

Apple User: I’m very excited about its release, and I can’t wait to see all of the new features it has in store

Q: What do you think about 5G finally coming to apple?

Apple User: I think that now that we have 5G, we can go beyond the limits our previous phones had

Q: What do you think about MagSafe charging on Apple devices?

Apple User: I think it’s a very unique feature that enables the user to have a new charging experience rather than having to place the phone multiple times on the regular charging pad.

Q: What do you think about Apple removing the charging adapter and the earphones from the box?

Apple User: I mainly think it’s due to environmental issues, plus you probably already have an adapter and some earphones.

Q: What do you think about the Lidar sensor on the iPhone 12 pro?

Apple User: I believe that the Lidar sensor will bring more advancement to the AR world of technology

Q: Overall, If you have the iPhone 11, do you think you should upgrade to the iPhone 12?

Apple User: Of course! If you have enough money, you should trade it in and get it: the newer phone, the better.

Android/Samsung User

Q: What are your initial thoughts on the iPhone 12 releasing this year?

Android User: I think that it’s the same darn thing as last year, and Android has all of the features Apple has

Q: What do you think about 5G finally coming to Apple?

Android User: I don’t see why Apple just now had to do it while Samsung has had it for over five years

Q: What do you think about Magsafe charging on Apple devices?

Android User: Again, Apple is once again copying Samsung with the magnetic charging. Like, we’ve had that for a while now.

Q: What do you think about Apple removing the charging adapter and the earphones from the box?

Android User: Yeah, you already have a charger, but you don’t have the correct one, and it doesn’t even fit the adapters you already have. I just think that Apple is scamming their customers, and you shouldn’t waste your money on them. Plus, it’ll create even more pollution since if people buy an adapter, it’ll have to be in a separate box.

Q: What do you think about the Lidar sensor on the iPhone 12 pro?

Android User: Why would you use Lidar? Phones like Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 10 Plus have time-of-flight (ToF) sensors that measure how long it takes infrared light to bounce back to the sensor. That allows for greater depth sensing.

Q: Overall, If you have the iPhone 11, should you upgrade to the iPhone 12?

Android User: Why should you even have an iPhone in general. Get a Samsung, It’s cheaper, and it’s better.

Buyers Opinion

I recently bought the iPhone 12, and I’m here to give you my opinion on it. First of all, I’ve upgraded from the 7, and there were some huge new differences I could tell right away from the speed, quality, and build. It’s way faster now with the 5G. I could run high fps games like Call Of Duty while in my car. The look of it is very stunning and pleasing to look at. It feels very easy and smooth to hold in the grasp of my hand. The camera quality is the finest I’ve seen so far on any smartphone and can capture stunning portraits and landscapes. I have no regrets purchasing this and I am very satisfied with it. Overall, this is one of the greatest purchases I’ve ever bought.


Well, that wraps up this article. I hope you’ve gathered all of the information you need to know about Apple’s latest iPhone, and I hope this article made you at least learn something about the iPhone 12 a bit.
