Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Apple announced its latest iPhone family in October during a virtual online event, and the new lineup includes the Apple iPhone 12, iPhone 12 ProiPhone 12 Mini, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. It has also featured with the latest ceramic display, 5G connectivity, and magnetic support branded as Magsafe can attach to several devices. So out of the four members of the new iPhone 12 family, the basic iPhone 12, in particular, can not be forgotten. Now let’s get the view of the iPhone 12.

As well as, iPhone 12 is more expensive than the latest iPhone 11, Apple is adding $100/ £100 to the price. However, it does bring an  OLED display,  a slightly improved camera, a new design – a big hit- several new features in the shape of 5G and Magsafe connectivity. Starting with the headliner, 5G brings faster speeds and more robust connectivity to the new iPhone 12, but since the 5G networks are not yet fully developed worldwide, the coverage is still somewhat patchy.

When it comes to functionality, it’s incredibly fast – we efficiently managed 200Mbps  on the go – but even in big cities, there are so many places that hard to get full coverage. Since most people today keep their phones for three or four years, this feature will become more useful and efficient over time – the iPhone 12 can connect to a broader range of 5G frequencies.

And also, The new MagSafe connector on the back of the iPhone 12 is a fascinating suggestion. This magnetic connection technology also allows you to attach things like a charger or a case to your phone and tell what is connecting via a particular chip. MagSafe enables faster, efficient, and more accurate charging and bringing a new range of accessories like a wallet clip-on, but 5G will come more useful over time. We also confirm that the Magsafe accessory range will be significantly enhancing by the touch of third-party manufacturing technology. 

This iPhone 12 has tweaked with the square edges, and the new ceramic shield, which is highly reminiscent of both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5  from the past, seem to fall four times more than the iPhone 11. Not only the design but also the display has improved in iPhone 12. It is now an OLED screen and the same technology which is using in the iPhone 12 pro.

It also brings an HDR mix of rich colors, deep blacks, and compatible content, so you can still get a sharp and colorful viewing experience. Especially battery life of the new iPhone 12 is average; with excessive use, your phone should see you most of the day – about 17-18 hours on a push. You will smoothly sail through the night with light use, but it is not as good as last years’ models. 

The iPhone 12 is full of potential, but Apple relies on others to make it a huge success. Also, we need to see the widespread deployment of 5G and move quickly with Magsafe devices to make the new phone an attractive purchase for others. While the display and design upgrades are very past, the iPhone 12 does not change much from the iPhone  11 and does not feel like it will be overpriced, just like that phone did. 

Specifications of iPhone 12.

Hardware

The Apple iPhone 12 uses Apple’s six-core A14 Bionic processor and includes a next-generation neural engine. It has three internal storage options: 64GB, 128GB, and 256 GB. iPhone 12 is also dirty and glossy with IP68 water and dust-resistant ratings and can withstand up to six meters (20 feet) of water for 30 minutes.

The iPhone 12 series is the first iPhone model to be launched without Earpods or wall adapters. Apple says it has made to reduce carbon emissions because many users have already them. Also, USB-C’s lightning cord has still included, and this change applies retroactively to all other iPhones, even in production. Wireless devices adding phones to comply with French law on radiation and health, and to promote wireless devices by children under 14, iPhone models will still include Earpods in this market. 

A magnetic connector called the Magsafe introduced in the iPhone 12 models, allowing devices such as accessories and rear charging cables to mounting on the device’s back. The iPhone 12 supports 5G cellular communications, and it will enable you to upload up to 200Mbit/S and download up to 4Gbit/S. However, only models sold in the US support the faster mmWave technology; sold in other parts of the world, including Canada, only support sub-5G bands. A new feature called Smart Data Mode activates 5G only when needed to conserve battery life.  

Displays

The iPhone 12 has featured in 6.1 inches (15cm) display with Super Retina XDR OLED technology at a resolution of 2532×1170 pixels and a pixel density resolution of around 460ppi.

The iPhone 12 uses an enhanced glass- Ceramic cover called the co-developed Ceramic Shield with Corning Ince.

Chipsets

Unlike the previous years, they are not the first Apple device to get the latest A-series processor, and the fourth-generation iPad Air is the first device from  Apple to contain the A14 Bionic. Both iPhone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max also include the Apple M14 motion coprocessor and, both phones use Qualcomm’s X55 5G modem.

Cameras

iPhone 12  has two 12 megapixel cameras on the back in the form of broad and extremely wide. The widescreen camera is similar to the full-frame 26mm f/1.6 aperture and has a seven-element lens. Both cameras support Night Mode for both photos and videos at full resolution in low-light settings and the smart HDR feature upgrading. So, this iPhone model is the first to shoot Dolby Vision  4K video up to 30 feet at a high dynamic range of 10 bits, allowing for more excellent brightness and deeper shadows.

Sensors

iPhone 12 includes the accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, and a digital compass. Especially in these devices, including a face recognition system that consists of several sensors: a dot projector, flood illuminator, and an infrared camera that scans the user’s face and stores it in a Secure Enclave.
