A few hours ago, on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, Apple unveiled the new iPhone 12 family at an event called Hi, Speed. For the first time, Apple has unveiled four iPhones at a time, with the iPhone 12 Mini at the bottom and the iPhone 12 one step further. Two more advanced phones, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which are slightly different from each other, complete this list. A lot of information and details of these four phones, including pictures of them, were available before the event. Apple also unveiled its new generation of smart speaker called HomePod mini at the event.
The first new thing about Apple’s two more advanced iPhones goes back to their different looks, which now, with the flattening of the sides, are closer to the company’s iPad Pro experience and have taken on a cleaner look. The notch at the top of the screen, contrary to what can be seen in some images to date, apparently has not changed, and this time Apple has used the same large and not so beautiful notch at the top of this model.
The composition of the cameras on the back of the device has not changed much in the past, and here, at least in appearance, we are faced with three large lenses placed in a raised rectangular area, and the LED flash and microphone are in their corresponding positions. A different point in this section is the presence of a LiDAR sensor in this section, which was first used in March 2020 in the iPad Pro family.
Apple, in partnership with Corning, has introduced a new screen cover for its new iPhones, known as the Ceramic Shield, which Apple says is up to four times stronger than any glass designed to protect mobile phones to date. It shows more resistance when falling from a height. Apple, of course, did not mention the basis of this comparison. The back of these two models is made of frosted patterned glass and the chassis of both phones is made of stainless steel.
This series with IP68 standard is resistant to water and dust penetration, which means that the device can be immersed in water with a depth of 6 meters for 30 minutes.
The iPhone 12 Pro measures 7.4 x 71.5 x 146.7 mm, which is a slight increase in screen size and dimensions of 8.1 x 71.4 x 144 mm compared to last year’s iPhone 11 Pro, with dimensions of 8.1 x 71.4 x 144 mm, only decreasing in length and decreasing in width and thickness. Has also. The iPhone 12 Pro is also very successful in terms of weight, and its weight of 189 grams differs from last year’s iPhone 11 Pro by only 1 gram, despite the larger screen.
This situation is almost the same for the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the dimensions of the device are 7.4 × 78.1 × 160.8 mm compared to the dimensions of the iPhone 11 Pro Max last year with 0.2 inches smaller screen and dimensions of 8.1 × 77.8 × 158 mm only in length. Has been. The iPhone 12 Pro Max now weighs 228 grams, which, although a high weight for a device of this size, is only 2 grams more than the iPhone 11 Pro Max last year.
As expected, Apple has not changed the refresh rate of its screens in all iPhone 12 members this year, and all of them still use the 60Hz update rate. The OLED screens of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, both called Super Retina XDR displays, are 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively, which are 0.3 and 0.2 inches larger than their counterparts from the previous year. The screen resolution of the iPhone 12 Pro is 1170 × 2532 pixels, which offers a density of 460ppi. The iPhone 12 Pro Max also uses a resolution of 1284 × 2778 pixels, which offers a density of 458 pixels per inch. These two screens naturally support HDR content and their normal and maximum brightness reaches 800 and 1,200 nits, respectively. Apple has talked about 2,000,000: 1 contrast in these two panels, and as in previous years, the oleophobic coating has not been forgotten.
The selfie camera on both phones, or as Apple points it out, the TrueDepth Camera in this set, like the other three cameras, is a 12-megapixel autofocus model with an f / 2.2 aperture, apparently the same as before. For example, we saw it on the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The camera supports 4K video capture at all three rates of 24, 30 and 60 frames per second, and its 1080p slow motion at 120 frames per second. The face recognition system of this collection is no different than before.
Both iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max use three cameras on the back, which differ in appearance in some cases; The main camera of both phones is a 12-megapixel wide model, which for the first time in an iPhone has an aperture of f / 1.6, which provides 27% more light to the sensor. The 7-stage lens of this camera is another new point of this part, which has a focal length of 26 mm and is also on the list of features as expected by optical image stabilization or OIS. The dimensions of the pixels in the main camera of the iPhone 12 Pro are announced as 1.4 microns.
The battery capacity of the iPhone 12 is the same as the iPhone 12 Pro at 2,815mAh, which is a slight decrease compared to the iPhone 11 with the 3,110mAh battery. The iPhone 12 Mini also uses a smaller battery, apparently with a capacity of 2,227mAh. The iPhone 12 Mini achieves 15 and 10 hours of battery life, respectively, in local and streaming video (internal memory and via the web), while the numbers on the iPhone 12 are 17 and 11 hours, respectively. In terms of music playback, these two phones achieve 50 and 65 hours of time, respectively. Charger and headset are not provided in these two phones, but if you provide a 20-watt charger for them separately, you can charge 50% of the battery capacity in 30 minutes. These two phones have a normal 7.5-watt wireless charger and a 15-watt MagSafe. Also support.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini are available in Black, White, Green, Blue and Red Product Red in three capacities of 64, 128 and 256 GB.
