Reasons to buy the iPhone 12. Apple’s most interesting smartphone to date

Get it right: it’s great when someone tentatively touches the edge with the tip of their shoe: isn’t it time to step over it? Here, it seems, Apple is ready to try and prove to us that augmented reality or AR in the iPhone 12 Pro is cool and much needed. No one has made it yet, but they should.

There’s still, though, a third lens and dual stabilization. but are you really willing to give a hundred grand for that?

If not, let’s forget about the iPhone 12 Pro and look towards the iPhone 12. It’s worth it. After spending a month with this smartphone, I think it’s the most interesting Apple smartphone to date.

Apple unveiled the iPhone 12. in Russia and sales date

Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 12 during its online presentation on October 13. First smartphone in the lineup with 5G support.

Its design calls to mind the iPhone SE. primarily due to the flat side edges. 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display crowned with a Face ID cutout. The screen is protected by Ceramic Shield coating, developed at Corning, the company that created Gorilla Glass.

The smartphone is powered by Apple’s A14 Bionic processor, which offers even better performance thanks to its 5nm processor, the company said. It also runs 50 percent faster graphics than its predecessor. Apple A13.

Dual camera allows you to shoot wide-angle (suitable for shooting landscapes) and standard mode. Both modules have a wider aperture, which provides more light transmission, as well as Smart HDR 3 support for a wide dynamic range. The so-called computational photography allows for night mode to capture all the details of the picture.

Another new feature is MagSafe. A special technology of magnetic fixing of wireless charging on the “back” of iPhone 12. And there will be no new chargers in the boxes with the iPhone. Apple attributes this to its concern for the environment. In addition, the packages themselves will be made smaller. Instead of a USB cable. Lightning will be a USB-C cable. Ligthning.

The line of new smartphones also included the iPhone 12 mini. The smallest smartphone with 5G. It has the same features as the iPhone 12, but has a 5.4-inch screen. It will cost 699.

Two more models are in the Pro Series. This is the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. According to Apple, they were able to be equipped with enlarged screens. 6.1 and 6.7 inches. with practically no increase in size.

The piPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are equipped with triple cameras. In addition to the standard and dual lenses, they support a fivex zoom. In addition, the module integrates a LiDAR sensor. It provides more precise focus when taking pictures, and also allows you to use the smartphone as a three-dimensional terrain scanner. This can help, for example, when designing rooms.

Sales and pricing in Russia


The battery life of the iPhone 12 Pro, compared to the iPhone 11 Pro, will be longer by 2 hours 50 minutes. And compared to the regular iPhone 11.3 hours and 11 minutes longer.

This is very good news, t.к. at the launch of sales iPhone 11 Pro on iOS 13 worked 1.5 days, but with the update to iOS 14 battery life has decreased significantly to 22 hours.

It is clear that the test firmware iOS 14 will be updated, but the additional increase in autonomy is not superfluous.

How much memory does the iPhone SE have

The tortured question of how much storage space to buy an iPhone. While I’ve often said before that you can safely get a 64GB iPhone, in 2022 you should get a 128GB minimum. Photos and videos take up a lot of space and 64 GB gets clogged up in just a few months.

No matter how you look at it, 64 GB in a modern smartphone is no longer enough.

Especially since the iPhone 13, the minimum memory of the iPhone is 128 GB. Hopefully, the Cupertinians increased the memory not as some premium feature, but simply because it’s necessary in 2022. It would be very unfortunate if Apple abandoned the same idea with the iPhone SE 2022.

Touch ID in the iPhone 12

Every year Apple is expected to finally add the Touch ID fingerprint scanner to its new flagships. Quite a few nowadays opponents of Face ID and people of old school want to get at least one new model with a fingerprint sensor. But on the other hand we must realize that adding both Face ID and Touch ID at the same time would increase the cost of an already expensive device.

Rumor has it that the fingerprint scanner may return after all. It’s just not clear when. The question also remains as to why? Perhaps Apple wants to give users a choice or Touch ID will really remain forever more reliable than the facial recognition sensor. Rumor has it that Apple is developing a fingerprint scanner that will be responsive on the entire surface of the display. Waiting for developers to finalize this technology. If it does not, you will have to rejoice only Face ID, because it is the only technology that allows you to protect the iPhone from hacking.

What will be the new iPhone 12: Features and release date

A description of the four possible models of the iPhone 12 has appeared online. There is even information about the release date of the new smartphone from Apple, albeit very approximate. Let’s figure out what the new iPhone will be like and what rumors about it we can believe.

It is still unclear exactly when the iPhone 12 will be introduced and when Apple will bring the new smartphone of the popular series to the market. However, when it comes to the numerous leaks about the new Apple device, which continue to circulate on the Internet for several weeks, it becomes clear that users do know more than the company would like.

Among the new leaks is information from the website DisplaySupplyChain, the creators of which, according to their own statement, were able to check some of the rumors or correct them with their own sources. From this array of information, we have compiled an overview of the technical specifications of all four planned models of the iPhone 12, about which we will tell you below.

Official representatives of the U.S. company Apple has not yet called the official presentation date of the new iPhone.

Unlocking iPhone in a mask: how it works and which iPhones are supported

Apple Event — October 13

Apple is expected to make the novelty cheaper by almost a third of the performance of the previous model. Therefore, the price of the iPhone SE 2022 will be only 299. It’s a logical cheapening, related to the company’s desire to increase demand for the new product even with the objective flaw of a small screen and five-year-old case.

What’s known about the iPhone 12 specs

The new models will own OLED screens, which will range in size from 5.4 to 6.7 inches. The standard variant is planned to have 4GB of RAM, while the Pro will allow for 6GB.

The smartphones are expected to install iOS 14, and the novelties will be able to support the format of the 5G network. Such a feature and increase in speed should not affect the cost characteristics of the model, although many consumers expected an increase in the price of the device.

Compared to the 11 version of the gadget, the flattened edges and the thinness of the body should be distinctive. The parameter of 7.39 mm and 8.1 mm is voiced. The “projection” of the camera should become thicker and reach 1.26, which suggests that it may slightly protrude from the body. It will again be equipped with a feature that allows facial identification.
