Apple yesterday unveiled the iPhone 12 Pro lineup, which includes the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Compared to the iPhone 11 Pro, the new smartphones offer more advanced features. Here are the ten best features of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max may not look much different from the iPhone 11 Pro, but they have changed significantly. How? We will explain below.
- Large displays
- Ceramic Shield
- LiDAR scanner
- Video recording with Dolby Vision
- Optical stabilization by matrix shift
- Night mode for all cameras
- MagSafe accessories and fast charging
- Apple ProRAW
- Environmental friendliness
This is a simple change that will please many. The displays on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are larger than their predecessors. The iPhone 12 Pro has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display (0.3 inches larger than the iPhone 11 Pro). The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch display (0.2 inches larger than the iPhone 11 Pro Max). At the same time, smartphones themselves no longer became. This is due to the thinner bezels around the screen. People love big displays and Apple knows it.
For months, there have been rumors that the iPhone 12 will support 5G connectivity, and it really is. Thanks to 5G, mobile Internet on smartphones will work faster and more stable. There are no 5G networks in Russia yet, but the iPhone 12 Pro modem also provides a faster 4G connection (up to 2 GB / s).
The iPhone12 Pro screen is made from the toughest smartphone glass in the world. It is called “Ceramic Shield”. The iPhone12 Pro screen should be very durable thanks to the new coating. According to the company, the new glass can withstand impacts up to four times better than the iPhone 11. The new smartphones are Apple’s toughest smartphones ever.
The iPhone12 Pro has a LiDAR scanner for enhanced AR performance. In addition, this scanner will be used when shooting in the dark for improved autofocus, which should perform 6 times better. Portrait mode for night photography will be better too.
Dolby Vision video recording
The new models can record HDR video with Dolby Vision technology at 4K at 60 frames per second. The iPhone12 Pro is the first smartphone to do this. In addition, now it will be possible to edit such videos directly on the smartphone.
Sensor shift optical stabilization
IPhone12 Pro Max introduces new Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) technology for the 12MP main lens. This technology is superior to conventional optical stabilization. How much? According to Apple, you can take pictures from the window of a moving vehicle and the photos will come out clear.
Night mode for all cameras
On the iPhone 11, Night Mode was only available with the primary 12MP lens. All iPhone12 Pro cameras this year support the mode. This means that night photography is now available on an ultra wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and even on the front camera. This will make your shots even better in the dark.
MagSafe accessories and fast charging
Apple has long since ditched MagSafe connectors on MacBooks. However, this year the technology is available for the iPhone12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Newer smartphones have magnets around the charging core that support different accessories. Among them are wireless chargers, wallet cases, and regular cases. Third-party accessories with new technology will also appear.
MagSafe wireless charging can charge new smartphones at up to 15W. Previously, wireless charging speed was limited to just 7.5W.
Apple introduced a new image format – ProRAW for iPhone12 Pro and iPhone12 Pro Max. The new format will allow you to use Apple image processing, but at the same time be able to manually control exposure, brightness, color, etc. Thanks to the new format, you can process photos as you like without losing detail.
Apple plans to release the API so that third-party application developers can add support for the ProRAW format. The format will hit the iPhone12 Pro and iPhone12 Pro Max later this year.
Apple plans to completely eliminate its negative impact on the environment by 2030. Some parts of iPhone12 Pro and Pro Max are 100% recycled. These include Camera, Taptic Engine, and MagSafe.
The iPhone12Pro box will not come with headphones or a charging adapter. This will upset many, but good for the environment. This move will help the company get rid of 2 million tons of carbon emissions each year. The smartphones still come with a USB-C / Lightning cable for charging. The box itself has also become smaller, which will have a beneficial effect on the environment.
