Apple iPhone 12

Like the iPhone 11 was in last year’s lineup, the iPhone 12 is the standard model that Apple expects the largest number of users to buy. Along with the addition of 5G support--and an OLED display as part of the new flat-edge design--the iPhone 12 will get a number of other upgrades. Those include the introduction of a new wide camera on the rear, featuring an improved ƒ/1.6 aperture; the 5-nanometer A14 Bionic processor, which Apple says can reach as much as 50-percent faster speeds than its closest competitors; higher resolution on the display, offering 460 pixels per inch versus 326 ppi on the iPhone 11; and a 4X more durable display using “Ceramic Shield” material.

Apple has also reduced the bezels around the display on the iPhone 12. That move has led to a more compact iPhone model with the iPhone 12—which is 15 percent smaller in volume, 11 percent thinner and 16 percent lighter than the iPhone 11, Apple said.

On battery life, the iPhone 12 will offer up to 17 hours of video playback, identical to that of the iPhone 11. Apple also announced new MagSafe accessories--which snap magnetically onto the back of the phone, as a new way to provide wireless charging.

The starting price for Apple’s iPhone 12 is $799—representing a $100 increase over the original starting price for the iPhone 11, which was $699. Apple said that iPhone 12 pre-orders begin on Friday (Oct. 16), and the device will be shipping on Oct. 23.
