On October 13th, 2020 Apple introduced its newest flagship iPhones. iPhone 12, 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and ProMax. Yes, this year we have the most complex models since the iPhone came out. Even between Pro and Pro Max, there’s something different. So which one will be your best choice? For me, I’ll definitely choose iPhone 12. Because iPhone 12 has almost the newest features on it. All iPhone models this year feature SuperRetina XDR OLED displays for the first time. There’s no difference in display quality between the standard iPhone 12 models and the Pro models.
Apple overhauled the design of the iPhone12 lineup this year. The front of the iPhone is protected by anew Ceramic Shield cover that replaces the standard cover glass. Apple says the Ceramic Shield is infused with nano-ceramic crystals and offers 4 times better drop performance. And there’s a new A14 chip inside the iPhone12 models, and it is the first chip in the smartphone industry built on a 5-nanometer process for performance and efficiency improvements. All of the iPhone 12 models in this year’s lineup support 5G.
For faster downloads and uploads, better quality video streaming improved gaming. Here in America, they will support millimeter-wave 5G, and you can see that little cut outsmart connector looking thing is on the side, which is different from iPhone in other countries look like. And all the models now have new wide cameras. A new seven-piece plastic element lens which allows 27% more light inside. Dolby Vision was for movies and TV shows from Hollywood studios. Now you can shoot, edit, and playback in Dolby Vision on all the iPhone 12 models. So these are similarities in the new features.
iPhone 11 used to have fewer features than11 Pro but this year what we can find out is that iPhone 12 is becoming more competitive. So this is the main reason why I would choose the iPhone 12. But how about iPhone 12 mini you may ask. After all, it’s the world’s smallest, thinnest, lightest 5G phone. Comparing with iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, apart from the size and weight, they’re totally the same. But a smaller size means a smaller battery inside. Obviously, we can find out that 12 mini has a shorter battery life. I suggest buying 12 mini as your spare device.
Differences between the 12 series and pro series
First, materials. The bands are surgical grade stainless steel on the 12 pro and 12 pro max. The 12 and 12 mini-feature aluminum aerospace, aluminum border. And also in color. On the 12 series, black, white, green, blue, and product red. And green and blue is the new color this year. The green color is a little different from last year. Looks brighter. And the deep blue. Looks cool. And on the 12 pro series, we have silver, gold, graphite, and pacific blue.
Graphite replaces the space grey in last year, and the new pacific blue looks advanced. Second, for capacity, iPhone 12 has the storage up to 256 GB while 12 pro and pro max have the storage up to 512 GB. And pro series starts with 128 GB. Then let’s move to the big deal part. The camera. Just like iPhone 11, 12, and 12 mini notably miss the telephoto zoom lens. This is a 2.0 aperture zoom lens providing2 times optical zoom on the 12 pro.
On the 12 pro max, this lens is even better. It offers a 2.5 times optical zoom. So the 12 pro max gets an additional 0.5 times optical zoom. And between 12 pro and 12 pro max, there is a considerable difference in the wide-angle lens. The wide-angle lens on the 12 pro max is larger because of the larger sensors here, letting in more light, taking better night mode photos.
And only the 12 pro and 12 pro max get the night mode portraits because of the LiDAR Scanner. This feature also helps for faster autofocus on low light and next-level AR experience. And also limited to the 12 pro and 12 Promax is Apple ProRAW, which helps you ink even more detail out of your photos for than editing via apple’s editor or third-party applications.
When recording in new Dolby vision HDR codec mode, the iPhone 12 and 12 mini are limited to 4k 30 frames per second while the 12 pro and pro max can do up to 60 in 4k. What’s more, about the new series iPhone. It’s that Apple will stop offering earpads and charger adapter, for environmental reasons, as Apple says. And all models do support the new MagSafe connector systems which look amazing.
The charger will be snap-in on the back of the iPhone. So the 12 and 12 pro iPhone will be available now. And the mini and 12 pro max will come outs later in next month, you can pre-order on November 6th with a received date of November 13th. Okay guys, so, if you’re normal users, just choose iPhone 12, which has almost the newest features on it. If you insist on a mini phone, then the iPhone 12mini will be a good choice. As for pro users, yes definitely to choose iPhone 12 pro max, if you have enough budgets, which you can experience the most advanced camera technique on it.
