This fall, Apple released four iPhone 12 models. Learn why you should consider upgrading to the higher end models iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. (Read more about the entry level models iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini here.)
The first thing you should know is that Apple’s line of “Pro” products are designed for super users. From high-profile businessmen to graphic designers, these Pro users demand more technology and finesse. Both iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max live up to that reputation with fancier materials and smarter designs.
This article will compare iPhone 12 Pro specs to iPhone 12 standard models. There are at least seven benefits of “going pro”, from the smartphone’s outside to its inner workings. Note that Pro Max is nearly identical to Pro, other than the size.
Benefits of iPhone 12 Pro versus iPhone 12
1. Sturdier frame
Tend to drop your phone? The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max come with a stainless steel frame to protect the outside. While the iPhone 12 boasts an aerospace-grade aluminum frame, aluminum lacks the toughness of steel.
2. Refined colors
Being made of steel, iPhone 12 Pro features polished metallic color options including gold, silver, graphite, and Pacific blue. Whereas iPhone 12’s aluminum can be tinted black, white, red, blue, or green. However, the color may be less important if you plan to use an iPhone 12 Pro case or wallet.
3. Telephoto camera
Want more camera range? All iPhone 12 models have a regular camera and an ultra-wide angle camera, both supporting night vision. However, the iPhone 12 Pro adds a third camera with telephoto zoom lens for taking clearer shots from far away. The iPhone 12 Pro camera offers optical zoom 4X and digital zoom 10x, while iPhone 12 Pro Max offers optical zoom 5X and digital zoom 12X.
4. Lidar sensor
For the techies, the iPhone 12 Pro features a depth-sensing lidar sensor near the cameras. Some of the benefits of this lidar sensor include auto-focusing the cameras and supporting augmented reality (AR) games and apps.
5. Larger storage option
Take a lot of photos? Having more storage will come in handy. iPhone 12 storage maxes out at 256 Gigabytes while iPhone 12 Pro offers one size larger at 512 Gigabytes. In addition, the iPhone 12 has only 4GB of RAM compared to iPhone 12 Pro at 6GB RAM.
6. Bigger screen option
Uniquely, iPhone 12 Pro Max offers a 6.7” OLED display great for watching videos and playing video games. On the other hand, both iPhone 12 and 12 Pro displays are sized at 6.1”.
7. Brighter display
Enjoy the outdoors? The iPhone 12 Pro specs boast 800 nits of screen brightness versus 625 nits for the standard iPhone 12. This extra brightness should improve your phone’s visibility in direct sunlight.
