iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
The main release at Apple’s event, of course, is the iPhone 12. Rumors about the device have been circulating for months, and it turns out, they were mostly true. Apple has released two standard models of the iPhone 12 so far, including a standard iPhone 12 and a small-screen iPhone 12 Mini. They both support 5G, including faster mmWave networks. The iPhone 12 Mini has a 5.4-inch display, compared to the 6.1-inch display on the standard iPhone 12.
Both standard iPhone 12 models offer the new Apple A14 Bionic, which is the same chip found in the previously announced but not-yet-released iPad Air. The new chip is built on a 5nm process, which improves on efficiency and performance, and it offers Apple’s new four-core GPU design, which Apple says offers a 50% performance increase in graphics.
The camera is getting an update, too. Notably, Apple says that Night Mode is now available on all iPhone 12 lenses, including the front-facing camera. And the lenses offer a larger aperture, which helps make for better low-light performance — including during video capture.
As rumored, the iPhone 12 also now has MagSafe on the back, which can be used for a range of different accessories. According to Apple, this starts with making the wireless charging experience better, by better aligning the iPhone with a wireless charger. The magnets can also be used for other accessories, like a wallet sleeve.
