Another iPhone Flagship released by Apple but its more or less same like its predecessors. Its easy to dismiss iPhone 12 as u get to know that iPhone 12 Mini is on its way. But its 5G compatibility is a huge positive point. Moreover, the Magsafe addition could be groundbreaking. All these things with a new and improved design, an improved and enhanced screen protection will make this phone last more longer.

However its more expensive that its predecessor, and surprisingly it does not come with a charger which is a bit odd for most of the people but consumers will get used to it, as Apple is brand that has built trust among its users. Apple claims that they have taken this step to contribute in making the environment more cleaner than before, but the fact that you have to spend more to get charger and headphones quite odd.

The iPhone 12 has become more expensive that its predecessor iPhone 11 and Apple has added $100 to its price. However this time iPhone brings some new features like an OLED Display, a little bit of an upgrade to the camera, an improved sleek design that is little bit similar to iPhone 5s, but the prominent features are 5G and MagSafe Connectivity.

If we talk about 5G in iPhone 12, it will bring you more faster speeds than 4G and more robust connectivity than iPhone 11. But as we all know 5G networks are still under testing and not fully functional around the globe, so you will have to wait to use this feature. When 5G will be fully operational, you will witness that its incredibly fast and you will easily get around 200mbps on the go. But you have to wait until 5G is fully deployed worldwide.

Many of the Apple user’s are holding on to their old iPhones because Apple does not bring such great features that forces people to upgrade their phones, but this time Apple has done a pretty good job and given some new and improved features and you must give them a try.

iPhone 12 comes equipped with new Magsafe connector on its back and its really interesting, this magnetic technology not only enables you to attach/stick things to your phone such as a charger or a case but also tell you that what type of accessory is connected to your iPhone 12 by displaying special animations.

Magsafe connectivity allows more accurate and fast charging and brings a new range of accessories that include a clip-on wallet, but we can asssume that as 5G technology will be fully functional, we will witness some new accessories to be used with Magsafe connector.

If we talk about the performance of Apple iPhone 12, Apple has once again upgraded the chipset to A14 Bionic that is the most powerful chip in any smartphone now a days.

Apple iPhone 12 still comes with 64GB to start with and you have to spend extra cash to get more storage. Available storages and RAM’s will be 64GB 4GB RAM, 128GB 4GB RAM, 256GB 4GB RAM.

The design of Apple iPhone 12 has been tweaked a bit and now it comes with squared off edges that highly resemble to iphone 4 and iphone 5. New Ceramic shield is deployed on the front of iPhone 12 series that make them approx 4 time more stronger than the predecessors.

The new OLED display offers rich and improved colors, deep blacks, True HDR. You also get a 120Hz display and a sharp colorful experience on the new iPhone 12.

If we talk about the camera of iPhone 12, you will again get a 12mp dual camera that contains wide and ultra wide cameras and this year iPhone will perform much better in Night mode. This feature will allow you to take some stunning photos.

Apple iPhone 12 is packed with huge potential but this time Apple is relying on deployment of 5G to take a lead and third parties have to cope with magsafe accessories quickly to boost the sales of new iPhone 12.
