|Apple Unveils 2020 Iphones With 5g(photos) by archieandrews1: 8:03pm On Oct 13, 2020|
It might be happening a bit later than usual, but Apple has just announced the iPhone 12. Featuring the same 6.1-inch display size as the iPhone 11 and iPhone XR before it, the latest “main” iPhone — and likely the model most people will gravitate toward — is making the transition from an LCD screen to OLED. And as rumored, the phone has flat aluminum sides for an overall look that more closely matches the iPad Pro and iPad Air (plus the iPhone 4 from years ago).
The iPhone 12 will come in black, white, blue, red, and green. Pricing starts at $799. Preorders start this Friday, and the iPhone 12 will be available on October 23rd. For storage, you can pick between 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Aside from the flat sides, it still largely resembles the iPhone 11. There’s still a notch at the top that houses Apple’s Face ID technology, though the bezels around the screen have been reduced — another perk of the OLED switch. (Crushingly, the combo Touch ID / power button from the new iPad Air didn’t make it to the iPhone this year.) Around back, the iPhone 12 has two cameras housed in a matte glass squircle, which makes for a nice contrast with the rest of the glossy back panel.
Apple has also sought to improve wireless charging on the iPhone 12, which contains a “MagSafe” system with built-in magnets to guarantee that the iPhone properly lines up with supported MagSafe accessories. Cases, charges, and other accessories snap onto the iPhone 12 magnetically. Apple is introducing a dual wireless charger for the iPhone and Apple Watch that utilizes the new MagSafe tech.
As rumored, Apple is removing the charging brick from its iPhone 12 boxes, a move it says is meant to push forward the company’s environmental goals.
Alongside the 6.1-inch iPhone 12, Apple also introduced a smaller 5.4-inch model that it calls the iPhone 12 mini.
If the iPhone 12 and 12 mini aren’t quite your speed, then you might be better served by checking out the iPhone 12 Pro, which was one of the four iPhone 12 devices revealed today. The iPhone 12 Pro features the same 6.1-inch display of the standard iPhone 12, and just like the iPhone 12, the 12 Pro will have the same ceramic shield cover for the display and stainless steel bands wrapping around the outer edges of the phone.
The iPhone 12 Pro uses a Super Retina XDR display, according to Apple. It will also use MagSafe, which was announced earlier in the day as a complementary tech for wireless charging and magnetic accessories. Finally, the 12 Pro will have IP68 water resistance and, of course, support 5G.
Apple unsurprisingly spent a lot of time talking about the cameras on the iPhone 12 Pro. We’ll be getting a 12MP ultrawide camera with a 120-degree field of view, an ƒ/1.6 aperture wide-angle lens, and a 52mm focal length telephoto camera. The 12 Pro’s camera will also support 4X optical zoom and come with the ability to record HDR video with support for Dolby Vision.
Apple, in fact, says that “Dolby Vision grading is processed live and sustained during editing,” and that the phone’s Super Retina XDR display will support HDR playback as well. Apple also promises an improved night mode for the iPhone 12 Pro, and that each of the cameras on the back of this phone will support it. Deep Fusion is also making a return in all cameras on of the iPhone 12 Pro as well.
The iPhone 12 Pro will be launching in four different colors: graphite, silver, gold, and pacific blue. It’ll be launching with 128GB of storage in the base model for $999. Here in the US, pre-orders for the iPhone Pro 12 will start at 5 AM PDT on October 16th, with the phone going live a week later on Friday, October 23rd.
