iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. How are they different?

Let’s start with the common feature. All this year iPhone‘y 12 got a new look. Apple He broke with the style that accompanied these devices since 2014, when the iPhone 6 had its premiere.

Even Apple is wrong. Here are the giant’s biggest bloopers

As for the design of the device itself, it is the only one the difference between the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini and the Pro models is the frame around the housing of the device. In the first case, this frame was made from aluminiumand in the second – with surgical steel. Okay, there’s one more cosmetic detail. The backs on the 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max have a matte finish. In the case of iPhone 12 and 12 Mini, the back of the case is more glossy.

Besides, visually all of them iPhones 12 are almost identical. We have the same workmanship and the same production process here. Unfortunately, in each of the four models we also find the same “notch”, i.e. a not very attractive indentation in the upper edge of the screen.

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini have the same technical specificationsame screen OLED (Super Retina XDR) and the same camera with two lenses. They differ diagonally. In the case of the iPhone 12 Mini, this is it 5.4-cala (1080 x 2340 px)while the iPhone 12 has a 6.1-inch diagonal (1170 x 2532 px). As for the processor used, we can find the already mentioned one here Apple A14 chip, which was made in 5 nm technology.

The camera in the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini is equipped with two lenses:

  • ultraszerokokÄ…tny 12 MP (f/1.6, 13 mm)
  • wide-angle 12 MP (f / 2.4, 26 mm)

There is a camera in the front 12 MP TrueDepth (f/2.2).

Apple does not reveal any details about it battery capacity. From the information on the manufacturer’s website, however, we learn that the iPhone 12 has a slightly more powerful battery than the iPhone 12 Mini. The battery in the first device will allow continuous video playback through 17 hours. In the smaller iPhone, it is 15 hours.

Both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini are available in five different colors: black, white, red, green and blue.

Until now, the Pro models differed from “ordinary” iPhones mainly in terms of the camera and the type of screen used. This year, only the camera remained the distinguishing feature. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max have the same display Super Retina XDRas the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12, although in both cases its resolution is higher.

iPhone 12 Pro comes with 6.1-inch (1284 x 2778) display, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max can boast diagonal 6.7-inch with the same resolution. Much to the disappointment of fans of the iPhone, Apple has not equipped any of the Pro models with a screen with a higher screen refresh rate. It is a pity, because 120 Hz is becoming a standard in competitors today.

What is really the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max from the “weaker” models is the mentioned main camera (the front one is the same). We find here not two, but three lenses:

  • ultraszerokokÄ…tny 12 MP (f/1.6, 13 mm)
  • wide-angle 12 MP (f / 2.4, 26 mm)
  • teleobiektyw 12 MP (f/2.0, 52 mm – iPhone 12 Pro; f/2.2, 65 mm – iPhone 12 Pro Max).

Let’s focus on the telephoto. In the case of the 12 Pro model, it has a 2x optical zoom (equivalent to 52 mm) and f / 2.0 light, and in the case of the Pro Max model, the zoom magnification is 2.5x (equivalent to 65 mm), and the light is f / 2.2. The second device is also better in terms of optical image stabilization. The iPhone 12 Pro has a double OIS, while the iPhone Pro Max has been equipped with a stabilized matrix (technology sensor-shift), which provides a better stabilizing effect.

Both devices also have a LiDAR sensor, which cannot be found in the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini. LiDAR measures the depth of the photographed scene, which (among other things) improves the quality of portraits taken in difficult lighting conditions (Night Shift mode).

iPhone 12 Pro, like the iPhone 12 Pro Max, are available in four color versions: gold, silver, graphite and pacific.

What’s missing in the new iPhones?

First, chargers and headphones. Apple explains it with ecological reasons. On the one hand, I can applaud this approach. I have at least a few “cubes” at home, and headphones that come with smartphones usually offer poor sound quality. So it is a small waste.

The problem is that if Apple really cared about ecology so much, the Cuperitno company would have long since given up on persistent “pushing” the Lightning connector to the iPhone and would choose the USB-C standard – just like the rest of the world. That would only be ecological, wouldn’t it? Apple has no problem with USB-C on its MacBooks and iPad Pro, but – for some reason – the iPhone is still looking forward to it.

As for the features offered, there are also a few shortcomings. Apple still cannot cope with the placement of the fingerprint reader (TouchID) under the iPhone display. So we are doomed to use the functions FaceIDwhich does not always work reliably.

I mentioned the higher screen refresh rate. This is still the case on all iPhone 12 models only 60 Hz. The flagship smartphones of Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and OnePlus today have smoother displays frequencies of 90 and even 120 Hz.
