5G, Performance And Battery Life
Finally, Apple has outfitted the new iPhones with 5G support. Both the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro offer high-speed 5G connectivity—with both supporting the two main varieties of 5G. That is, the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro support both sub-6GHz 5G connectivity--which is the more widely available type of 5G—as well as the higher-speed “millimeter-wave” 5G service (or mmWave).
On performance, users shouldn’t notice a difference between the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro. Both use the same processor, Apple’s speedy six-core A14 Bionic. And benchmark results reported using Geekbench 5 showed nearly identical results between the two iPhones on both single-core and multi-core tasks.
On battery life, both devices reportedly feature the same-sized battery, with a capacity of 2,815 mAh. Interestingly, Apple discloses that battery life should be slightly better on the iPhone 12 Pro, with up to 20 hours of video playback possible, vs 17 hours on the iPhone 12.
