Apple unveiled iPhone 12 lineup on October 13, 2020. This year, Apple has focused on 5G and photography. Release date, price, technical sheet, here is everything we know at this stage about the next iPhone.

The iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max had initially made us feel like a disappointment: Apple did not know how to make us dream with new technologies ahead of the market, as at the time of the iPhone X. The iPhone 11 generation was that of a technological catch-up on Android competition which has clearly increased.

The iPhone 11 seemed destined to be first of the class in a maximum of possible categories (screen, photo, autonomy, biometrics, software support). And from this point of view, the firm has fulfilled its objective , as we were able to discover in our complete test of the iPhone 11. A year later, the iPhone 12 generation must transform the test.

We’ve compiled all the things you need to know about new iPhones in this folder. Are you looking for information about Apple products? We’ve got you covered.

Of course, these new iPhones have a new A14 Bionic processor, which relies on its power as well as its 5G compatibility.

Engraved in 5 nm, it has 11.8 billion transistors. Apple indicates that it is 50% times more powerful than that of the iPhone 11 and that it is also designed for gaming. For example, the Cupertino company has unveiled a gameplay video of the famous Moba League of Legends on its iPhone 12, as beautiful as on PC and without slowdowns.

Apple did not really spread out on the technical sheet. It is indeed not in the habits of the house, but no doubt that we will learn more very soon. Of course, several sizes of memory will be offered, 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB.

Improved photo sensors

Apple offers two 12-megapixel sensors on its iPhone 12. Technically, this may seem a bit tight, but the Cupertino company claims to have greatly worked on the AI ​​part of its software. Thus, the photos promise to be perfectly balanced with good brightness. More so, the night mode should also be improved on this new model.

The video mode is not left out. Apple claims to offer the most beautiful videos on the market with the iPhone 12. During the conference, the manufacturer unveiled its new impressive night mode for videos, which will allow you to take perfect sequences even with poor light.

The iPhone 12 Pro will be equipped with three 12 megapixel sensors (normal, ultra wide and telephoto) and will provide even more details in the photos taken. Likewise, Dolby Vision will be integrated into videos, a first for smartphones. The Lidar sensor will also be there. This high precision sensor is very useful for very precise location and for augmented reality.

MagSafe Wireless Charging

Apple introduced a new way to charge your smartphone with the MagSafe system for wireless charging. With these products, it will be possible to charge your smartphone anywhere thanks to a shell or to charge several products at the same time thanks to a magnetic system.

Protection

Apple has promised that these new iPhones will be more durable than the old ones, having greater tolerance to shocks and drops thanks to its technology called Ceramic Shield. More than that, they will be IP68 certified and will therefore be waterproof. Apple has learned the lesson of the iPhone 4 with their glass back and therefore worked on this segment, the iPhone 12 also using this material.

Screens of all sizes

The OLED was expected for the screen part of these new iPhones, and Apple has taken the plunge . The brand has not really sprawled out on the subject, preferring to focus its communications on different screen sizes depending on the model.

The iPhone Mini therefore has a 5.4-inch Retina screen while the iPhone 12 offers a 6.1-inch size. The iPhone 12 Pro goes further with a massive 6.1- or 6.7-inch display. Here, no curved screens or punches, since we find a flat slab as well as the eternal notch. It should be noted that Apple will remain on a 60 Hz refresh rate and will not (yet) follow the trend of 120 Hz screens on high-end terminals.

No charger and headphones in the boxes

Apple is very concerned about preserving the environment and has decided to strike hard on this point with the iPhone 12. Thus, the phone will be delivered without a charger. The brand believes that we certainly already have a charger with us and does not consider it necessary to provide one. If you don’t have one, the charger will be sold on the official website. There are no Headphones in the box for the same reason.
