The iPhone 12
With the past year filled with uncertainty and all the other things besides the pandemic, Apple on October 13, 2020, introduced its newest flagship iPhones, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, which offer powerful features at an affordable price tag. Sold alongside the more expensive iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, the iPhone 12 and 12 mini are ideal for anyone who doesn’t need Pro camera features.
The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 is a successor to the iPhone 11, while the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is an all-new size and marks the smallest iPhone Apple has introduced since the 2016 iPhone SE. Aside from screen size and battery size, the two phones are technically identical. With its small size, the iPhone 12 mini will be ideal for those who prefer an iPhone that can be used one-handed.
All iPhone models this year feature Super Retina XDR OLED displays for the first time, with an edge-to-edge design with the exception of the Face ID notch and small bezels around the edge. There’s no difference in display quality between the standard iPhone 12 models and the Pro models.
The iPhone 12 is the kind of product Apple only releases once in a while — the kind that looks different, is built on a fundamentally new technology, and will ultimately form the basis of future iPhones for years to come.
The iPhone 12 has an attractive new design, a straightforward and complete approach to 5G, good cameras, and even better performance.
You can buy the iPhone 12 from Apple as well as a number of carriers. The phone starts at $829 for an unlocked device with 64GB of storage ($799 if you buy it on-contract from Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile); opting for 128GB ($879) or 256GB ($979) raises the price.
