Say hello to the iPhone 12

How big are the iPhone 12 displays?

The biggest phone is the iPhone 12 Pro Max – with its 6.7-inch display. The biggest iPhone ever! If you’re looking at something that fits in a smaller pocket, both the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are 6.1 inches. For the smaller option, the Mini packs everything into a 5.4-inch display. This is a big plus for fans of the older style, smaller iPhones.

What is the camera set up?

The iPhone 12 and 12 mini have a dual 12 MP Ultra Wide and Wide cameras. The Pro and Pro Max give you an extra Telephoto lens with a 4x and 5x Optical zoom respectively.

LiDAR is coming to all models. This gives you some pretty amazing trickery – like autofocus in lowlight up to 6x faster. It also unlocks a low-light portrait mode. Perfect for late nights!

The Pro and Pro Max also come with Apple ProRaw – meaning you can capture pics in even more incredible detail to edit later. One for the pro photographers out there!

For video fans, expect 4K across the board. Combined with iPhones editing abilities, you'll have a little movie studio on the go.

What colours does the iPhone 12 come in?

The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini come in black, white, red, blue and green. A more swish palette is available on the Pro and Pro Max – with graphite, white, gold and Pacific Blue.

Is iOS14 on the iPhone 12?

Yes, they’ll be running Apple’s latest software - iOS 14. That will bring a new load of new features like widgets, apps and picture-in-picture. Expect plenty more trickery!

Do all models have 5G?

Unlike other phone launches, 5G isn’t just restricted to the more expensive models. During the show, they talked up 5G capability and what that will mean – i.e. improved downloads, seamless streaming and improved gaming. It also have the advantage of getting amazing speeds on the go without the security risk of public WiFi.

Is the iPhone 12 water resistant?

Yes, all models are water resistant to a depth of 6 metres for 30 minutes. That’s an IP68 rating – which also makes it dust resistant. Combine that with its ultra-tough Ceramic Shield front and you’ve got a robust phone – no matter which one you pick.

Is the iPhone 12 fast charging?

All models will give you at least 15 hours video playback, but you don’t need to hang around waiting for juice. You’ll get a 50% charge in 30 minutes. And with wireless charging and Mag Safe as options – you won’t need to rely on charging from the mains either.

Is the iPhone 12 good for gaming?

Apple are touting the iPhone 12's "console quality gaming." We can expect games to look great on the Super XDR display. Particularly if you like mobile games. League of Legends and Fortnite seem like great games to play, thanks to a powerful A14 chip and 5G capabilities.

When will the iPhone 12 be released?

The iPhone 12 Mini and Pro Max will be ready for pre-order on Nov. 6th and you’ll be able to get your hands on one on Nov. 13th. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro follow a little later. Preorders start on Oct. 16th and are then available a week later on Oct. 23rd.
