The new generation Apple iPhone 12 Series is here! We’ve already talked before about the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 mini in our previous article. It’s time to move on to the next two phones in Apple’s new iPhone lineup: the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Like its siblings, these two Pro iPhones arrive with an A14 Bionic chip, Super Retina XDR display with Ceramic Shield, and pro camera system with LiDAR Scanner.
The iPhone 12 Pro will become available on October 16 with a starting price of $999. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 Pro Max will start shipping on November 13 for $1,099. They can be had in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
Scroll down to see what more the two new Apple iPhone 12 Pros can offer.
Design & Construction
Like the other phones in the 12 Series, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max feature a new edge-to-edge design. In terms of size, these two models are quite bigger than the others. But are similarly protected by the all-new Ceramic Shield front cover. Moreover, they have a gorgeous surgical-grade stainless steel and paired with a precision-milled matte glass back.
The Pro models also boast an industry-leading IP68 rating. The handsets can withstand water submersion up to 6 meters for up to 30 minutes.
The models will ship in four stainless steel finishes: Graphite, Silver, Gold, and Pacific Blue.
Display & Multimedia
These two Apple devices sport Super Retina XDR displays–and they have quite the biggest screens on an iPhone to date. The iPhone 12 Pro boasts a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max is 6.7-inch.
The screens arrive with systemwide color management, nearly 3.5 million pixels resolution, and a true-to-life viewing experience. The OLED panels bring HDR video content to life with up to 1200 nits peak brightness.
With iOS14 running, the handsets now allow customization of the Home Screen. The App lIbrary is a new space that automatically organizes all the apps into one simple view. Features like App Clips, updated Messages, and better Maps are also available.
The triple rear camera systems on these Apple smartphones include an Ultra Wide sensor, a Telephoto lens, and a Wide camera module. The system also boasts the new LiDAR Scanner for immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences.
For camera features, they have the all-new Apple Pro RAW mode that provides more creative controls. In addition, there’s the Night Mode, Night mode Time-Lapse, and Deep Fusion. These devices are also the first ones to enable end-to-end Dolby Vision video up to 60fps.
These iPhones come powered by the Apple-designed A14 Bionic chip. It is the first chip in the smartphone market built on the 5-nanometer process. Additionally, it is built-in with a 16-core Neural ENgine. The result: the new iPhones have up to 50 percent faster CPU and GPU. They are also capable of completing 11 trillion operations per second.
Good news for early tech adopters, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max already offer 5G connectivity. This innovation allows faster downloads and uploads and higher quality video streaming. It also promises more responsive gamins and real-time interactivity in apps.
These handsets are equipped with MagSafe, which allows high-powered wireless charging and an all-new ecosystem of accessories.
