Apple unveils new 5G iPhone 12 models
On Tuesday, Apple unveiled four new iPhone 12 models bringing 5G to its smartphone line-up.
The four models include the Apple iPhone 12 mini, Apple iPhone 12, Apple iPhone 12 Pro, and Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max. All of them support 5G wireless networks, which will be used when the operating system of the device determines it is required. For low-data requirements, it will drop to LTE 4G connectivity
to save battery.
All models also run on Apple’s proprietary A14 Bionic system chip. Each features an OLED display including its lower-end iPhone models for the first time. MagSafe wireless charging is also supported.
As leaks suggested, the iPhone 12 models have squared off edges rather than rounded edges, and each has a protective glass developed in conjunction with Corning, which develops Gorilla Glass.
Another previously leaked detail that turns out to be true is that the iPhone 12 models do not come with a charger or headphones. They do come with a USB-C compatible Lightning charging cable. Apple justifies the omissions on environmental grounds, finding that most people already have multiple chargers and also that by removing chargers the iPhones can be packed more tightly for shipping.
Here is a look at the specs of the individual iPhone 12 models.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini share more or less the same interior features, just differing in size. In terms of durability, the phones offer an IP68 rating, which means water resistance up to a depth of 6 meters for 30 minutes.
On the rear of each, there are two 12-megapixel cameras that take advantage of the new powerful A14 Bionic platform. The main camera (f / 1.6) is faster than ever before on the iPhone and provides 27 percent more light for photos and videos. Alongside is an ultra-wide-angle camera. For video, you can shoot up to 4K 60fps video. The smaller phone offers up to 15 hours of battery life for video playback and the larger model offers 17 hours.
