Everything you need to know about Apple iPhone 12 and Apple iPhone 12 Mini
The latest Apple smartphone release features big advances compared to the previous generation. There are also two size options: iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini. (Note that iPhone 12 Pro is considered a unique model and not the focus of this article.)
Most notably, the display, durability, and cameras of iPhone 12 models are better than iPhone 11 models. Continue reading to learn more about iPhone 12 features and important updates.
iPhone 12 Specs
When comparing size options, iPhone 12 Mini offers a smaller, pocket-friendly option with a 5.4” display. On the other hand, iPhone 12 is similarly sized to iPhone 11 at 6.1”. However, thanks to material advances, iPhone 12 is about 0.9mm thinner and 32 grams lighter compared to iPhone 11.
One tradeoff with the smaller iPhone 12 Mini is less battery life. For instance, you can play audio over iPhone 12 Mini for 50 hours compared to iPhone 12 at 65 hours. But, you can still expect both options’ batteries to last you through the day.
With both iPhone 12 models, get excited for more cellular coverage and fewer dropped calls. iPhone 12 introduces 5G connectivity for more cellular bands in total than any other smartphone on the market.
Another technical advantage of iPhone 12 models is the A14 Bionic chip “brain” powering the show. This is “the fastest chip in a smartphone” and enhances battery life, call quality, and many iPhone 12 new features.
Apple iPhone 12 Features
Record better photos and videos, in all lighting conditions. The two iPhone 12 cameras record in 12 megapixels and support wide angle shots, night mode, and high quality video recording. Additionally, iPhone 12 cameras are the first to record in Dolby Vision cinematic movie quality and Dolby Atmos 3D spatial audio.
Playback those videos on an impressive OLED Super Retina XDR display which now comes standard. Previously, the base iPhone 11 models had a LCD display with less brightness and clarity.
Stop worrying about dropping your expensive phone with the new Ceramic Shield glass. Invisible ceramic crystals embedded in the iPhone 12 screen make the glass 4 times more drop resistant than iPhone 11. Additionally, the iPhone 12 perimeter is made of aerospace-grade aluminum.
Choose whether to have one phone number or two on iPhone 12 by activating the Dual Sim Card. However, Dual Sim will not initially be compatible with 5G calling.
iPhone 12 Accessories
Apple introduces a new magnetic accessory line for the iPhone 12 models called MagSafe. The snap-on phone cases and credit card holders are compatible with wireless charging.
However, if you are looking for more stylish iPhone 12 accessories, check out the Burkley Case line-up. The leather iPhone 12 case is soft in your hands, while the leather wallet iPhone 12 case holds up to 11 credit cards.
Both iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini have a lot of quality to offer, from the screen to the cameras. The main difference is the size of the display and the resulting battery life. Remember to order an iPhone 12 case when you purchase your preferred iPhone model.
