In addition to the displays, the cameras on these new Pro iPhone models are a bit different.

The new models include the redesigned iPhone 12 - successor to the top-selling iPhone 11 launched past year - which will start at $799. It will be available to pre-order from 16 October, available 23 October. They are also getting size upgrades, with the iPhone 12 Pro Max sporting a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display, making it one of the biggest iPhones out there while the iPhone 12 Pro, on the other hand, has seen an upgrade from the predecessor's 5.8-inch display to a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR panel. We don't know how severe demand will be, but we recommend ordering in advance.

Today Apple introduced the iPhone 12 mini, a smaller version of its flagship phone. Apple has increased the price of the iPhone 12, which starts from £799 compared to £729 charged for the iPhone 11 a year ago.

The speaker has a mesh appearance similar in design to the latest Echo and will interact directly with a user's iPhone, providing visual, audio and haptic feedback.

Staying true to the Pro moniker, Apple has included features like Apple ProRAW which will be available exclusively on the 12 Pro and the 12 Pro Max. Thanks to the phone's revolutionary new anechoic chamber, Apple has also optimized iOS frameworks so that the phones can get the best of 5G without using more power. The 12 Pro's screen has the highest resolution for an iPhone ever, with 3.5 million pixels.

Apple boasted about the 5G capabilities and brought in Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg to champion the carrier's network.

Although other parts of Apple's business are now growing more rapidly, the iPhone remains the biggest business of a technology juggernaut currently worth about $2 trillion United States, almost double its value when stay-at-home orders imposed in the U.S.in mid-March plunged the economy into a deep recession.

The iPhone 12 Mini is the least expensive of bunch, starting at $699 for the 64GB model.

Apple iPhone 12 Event: How to Watch & What to Expect Today

If you're a mobile photographer or videographer, the iPhone 12 Pro Max looks to be your top choice, though the iPhone 12 Pro is also a strong option that can save you a little money.

The iPhone 12 comes in an array of colours namely Blue, Green, Product Red, White and Black. 2020 seems to be the year of Blue if the Apple Watch Series 6 is anything to go by. It is said to be 11% thinner, 16% lighter and 15% smaller in volume when compared to the iPhone 11.

At the moment, the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are already listed on Apple Malaysia's website but they have yet to reveal its availability details. The company says that the screen is four times more drop resistant than it was before. The Pro models also support Dolby Vision HDR at 60fps, while the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini max out at 30fps.

Apple's iPhone 12 Pro models also feature a Lidar sensor which will allow for improved Augmented Reality features and faster auto-focus.

For taking photos, both phones feature 12-megapixel wide-angle cameras, in addition to 12-megapixel ultra-wide and telephoto cameras. The camera has a 12MP ultra-wide ƒ/2.4 aperture lens and a 12MP wide ƒ/1.6 aperture lens.

(Pocket-lint) - Apple announced the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max at an event on 13 October, succeeding the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max from 2019, though the iPhone 11 will still be available alongside the new models.

In a big nod towards future-proofing, the iPhone 12 will include 5G connectivity, a first for an iPhone. The A14 Bionic chip is the latest entry in a series of chipsets historically known to crush its Android competitors, and it has an emphasis on graphics processing that gives the iPhone 12 an especial affinity to gaming. The iPhones SE and XR lack these modes. According to Apple, the primary camera improves on low-light performance by 27 percent.

The bodies of the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max both include stainless steel bands rather than the aluminum of the iPhone 12 plus matte glass on the back. This same video quality capability is shared by the front facing camera, so you'll look good in FaceTime calls. 5G helps with privacy, as users won't have to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots as often, Cook added.
