Apple has announced its iPhone 12 lineup, and as ever, the phones’ camera systems were the focus of much of the company’s presentation. This year, though, there’s more to differentiate each model than ever before. The iPhone range is getting improvements across the board, but Apple appears to be reserving the biggest advances for its biggest phone. The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max has some serious hardware improvements that set its camera apart from every other iPhone.
Hardware-wise, there doesn’t appear to be much difference between the iPhone 12, 12 mini, and 12 Pro when compared to the 11 and 11 Pro. All of these phones use the same-sized 12 megapixel sensors for wide, ultrawide, and the Pro model’s telephoto cameras, and the shape and size of the camera bump remains essentially the same.
The biggest hardware change is a new seven-element f/1.6 lens for the primary wide
The iPhone 12 is official. During a virtual event on Wednesday, Apple announced four new iPhones, all of which have new cameras, a new body design, support for 5G and “ceramic shield” displays. The new phones are named just like the iPhone 11 family: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. There is also the iPhone 12 Mini, which packs the iPhone 12 into a smaller and more affordable body while retaining all of its features. It’s the smallest iPhone you can buy new, and it’s even more petite than the current iPhone SE.
As far as price, the iPhone 12 Mini starts at $699, the same as last year’s 11. The iPhone 12 starts at $799. Prices for the 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max stay
The Apple iPhone line-up for 2020 line-up brings four iPhones to the table, but what doesn’t change at all is the fact that the Pro devices, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro and the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max are really resetting the benchmark in terms of photography performance. It was perhaps to be expected, but what has finally been unveiled is in all likelihood more than what anyone of us may have imagined. And that’s just one aspect, because across the board, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro line is a serious upgrade over the iPhone 11 Pro series. Incidentally, the pricing of the Apple iPhone 12 Pro and the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max remains the same as last year. The Apple iPhone 12 Pro prices start Rs 1,19,900 while
At Apple’s iPhone event on Tuesday, the company introduced a range of new phones, led by the just-announced flagships: the iPhone 12 Pro, starting at $999, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, starting at $1099. The new 5G-ready devices sport an all-screen Super Retina XDR display, the A14 Bionic chip, a Ceramic Shield front cover, LiDAR Scanner, and of course, the iPhone line’s best camera system.
iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be available in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations and four stainless steel finishes, including graphite, silver, gold, and pacific blue.
5G, of course, will be one of the bigger selling points for the devices as the new technology will boost speeds, meaning faster downloads and uploads, higher quality streaming, more responsive gaming and faster responses in apps, among other things.
Of course, some of the immediate demand for new 5G phones may be tempered by the
As a professional photographer, I’ve been blown away by how the iPhone 11 Pro has been able to replace my DSLR on photo shoots. But Apple just introduced the iPhone 12 lineup, which includes the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the camera tech is even better this time around. (Here’s everything Apple announced at the October event.) The iPhone 12 Pro Max’s camera updates especially, both in hardware and software, have already got me buzzing about going shooting with this thing. Here’s why I’m so excited.
More zoom with the 2.5x telephoto lens
I love the telephoto zoom lens on the iPhone 11 Pro, but at only 2x, it doesn’t always provide quite the level of zoom I want. I often find myself digitally zooming in further to get the exact composition I want. The iPhone
Earlier today, Chinese leaker “Kang” shared allegedly accurate information for the products set to be announced at the upcoming Apple event on October 13, including details on the full iPhone 12 lineup.
According to the leaker’s information, which was later modified with corrections for product availability timeframes, the 5.4-inch “iPhone 12 Mini” will be available to preorder on November 6 or 7, with a launch date of November 13 or 14.
Meanwhile, the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max will allegedly be available to preorder on November 13 or 14, with a launch date of November 20 or 21.
Bloomberg believes that Apple will stagger the iPhone launches in 2020, while DigiTimes has previously suggested the two 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models could come out first in October, with the 6.7 and 5.4-inch models to follow. Leaker Jon Prosser today has also claimedDigiTimes was correct earlier in the year.
A new leak claims that Apple’s new “HomePod mini” will be $99 and half the height of the original, plus details a release schedule for the whole of the “iPhone 12” range.
A leak originally posted on Chinese site Weibo but then relayed by previously accurate tweeter Ice Universe, claims to have full details of the rumored smaller HomePod, plus confirmation of the “iPhone 12” range Apple is expected to announce on October 13.
A translation of the original Weibo posting says, “HomePod Mini, priced at $99, 3.3-inch speaker, S5 processor.
Most places are scheduled for November 6/7, and will be released on 16/17. Please wait for the domestic release.”
The reference to a domestic release implies that these dates are for America, not China where the leak was posted.
At 3.3-inches, the HomePod mini would be just under half the height of the original HomePod. And at $99,
