iPhone 12 first look and key features

The key upgrade in this year’s iPhone 12 is that it supports 5G cellular networks.

On Tuesday last week, Apple launched iPhone 12 with the key changes being – 5G, a flat-edge design and a mini model.

The 2020 options arriving in stores in October and November are as follows:

  • iPhone 12, priced at $800, with a 6.1-inch screen and two cameras on the back.
  • iPhone 12 mini, priced at $700, a smaller-form iPhone with a 5.4-inch screen.
  • iPhone 12 Pro, priced at $1,000, at the higher end of the price spectrum, a 6.1-inch model with extra camera features.
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max, priced at $1,100, a 6.7-inch model with extra camera features.

Key features:

5G capability: 5G networks allow faster download speeds, less delay and the ability to support a lot more devices. They’re now supported by the iPhone. A 5G iPhone could be very fast, with Verizon saying its ultra-wideband network clocks peak downloads of 4 gigabits (yes, giga!) per second on the device.

New designs and materials: With iPhone 12, Apple brings back the flat edge design of the old iPhone 4, which people find less slippery. The iPhone 12 mini is smaller than iPhone 8 with an edge-to-edge screen. The iPhone 12 is 11% thinner, 15% smaller and 16% lighter than the iPhone 11.  The iPhone 12 also has a new kind of glass that is four times more resistant to cracking during falls.

Camera improvements: Apple’s Night Mode is now available with the front-facing camera to allow for better selfie quality at night. Night Mode has also been added to the ultrawide angle camera. The higher-end versions of iPhone 12 have a telephoto lens on the back. iPhone 12 pro has a lidar sensor which helps improve depth focus especially in low light situations.

Environmental benefits: iPhone 12 does not come with headphones or a charging brick which is good for the environment, as there are already over 700 million corded white EarPods in the world, and 2 billion Apple power adapters. By dropping these from the phone package, Apple can also now make its boxes smaller which is a part of its long-term commitment to a net-zero climate impact across its businesses by 2030.
