The latest iPhone 12 is 11% thinner, 15% smaller and 16% lighter than the previous model – but it is packed with lots of new technology and features.
5G on iPhone is incredibly fast. So you can download movies on the fly. Stream higher-quality video. Or FaceTime in HD over a mobile network with a lot less lag. And you can do it in more places, because iPhone 12 has the broadest 5G coverage worldwide.
Beautifully bright, the 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display provides and edge-to-edge display. Vastly more contrast. Incredible colour accuracy. A huge jump in pixel density. Wow. Just wow. OLED delivers brighter brights, darker blacks and higher resolution for everything you look at. This is the best iPhone display and it goes all the way to the edge.
Ceramic Shield gives the iPhone 12 four times better drop protection by adding nanoceramic crystals — which are actually harder than most metals — into the glass. Scratch resistance is also improved using a new dual ion-exchange process on the back glass, this protects against nicks, scratches, and everyday wear and tear.
Incredible low-light photography and now with Night mode on all cameras. Both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras now have Night mode — and it’s better than ever at capturing incredible low-light shots. The new Wide camera brings in 27 per cent more light. So whether you take photos by day or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and colour that wasn’t possible before. Take great photos even further by choosing from six creative lighting effects, like High‑Key Light Mono, Natural Light and Studio Light.
iPhone 12 is the first phone to include Cinema-grade Dolby Vision video recording, editing and playback. How do you improve on the highest-quality video in a smartphone? Make it even better in low light — a full 27 per cent better. That means no hour is off limits for more beautifully detailed video. Then there’s Night mode Time-lapse. Just prop up your iPhone and let the light trails begin.
A14 Bionic is the fastest chip in a smartphone. And it pushes what’s possible. Like crunching trillions of operations on the Neural Engine. Or shooting in Dolby Vision — even pro movie cameras can’t do that. It’s remarkably efficient for great battery life. And it’s ahead of its time, prepared to power pretty much anything that comes next.
Privacy is greatly improved. Face ID data doesn’t leave your iPhone and is never backed up to iCloud or anywhere else. iOS shows you an app’s privacy practices before you download it. When you use Apple Pay, your credit card number isn’t shared with merchants. And the list goes on.
And new MagSafe accessories for easy attachment and faster wireless charging. Snap on a new MagSafe case, wallet or both in a wide selection of colours. Fear not, the wallet is shielded so it’s safe for credit cards.
The new iOS 14 brings a fresh look to the things you do most often, making them easier than ever. New features help you get what you need in the moment. And the apps you use all the time become even more intelligent, more personal and more private. Widgets have been totally redesigned to give you more information at a glance — and now you can add them to your Home Screen. Choose from different sizes and arrange them however you like.
The new App Library automatically organises all of your apps into one simple, easy‑to‑navigate view. Apps are sorted by category and your most used apps are always just one tap away.
Picture in Picture allows you to keep watching videos or continue your FaceTime call while you use another app.
