At its special event Apple announced the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max successor of last year’s iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max models, both with support for 5G. These come with 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch OLED Super Retina XDR displays, respectively and have support for HDR and Dolby Vision. These come with new Ceramic Shield protection with 4x better drop performance, thanks to a new high temperature crystallisation step that grows nano-ceramic crystals within the glass matrix. The phones are powered by A14 Bionic 5nm Chip with 11.8 billion transistors and a 6-core design and feature IP68 water resistance (6 meters for up to 30 minutes). The phones have Textured matt glass back and stainless steel body.
The iPhone 12 Pro features 12MP main camera along with a 12MP 120° Ultra Wide camera and a 12MP 52 mm focal length Telephoto camera for 4x optical zoom. The iPhone 12 Pro Max features a new f/1.6 aperture Wide camera with a 47% larger sensor with 1.7μm pixels for a massive 87% improvement in low-light conditions. It also includes the expansive Ultra Wide camera and a 65 mm focal length Telephoto camera for 5x optical zoom. Night mode is now available for all the cameras and there is a new Night mode Time-Lapse mode. Deep Fusion, now better and faster, comes to all cameras, and with the new Smart HDR 3 for more true-to-life images, even in complex scenes.
The iPhone 12 Pro models are the first in the world to enable an end-to-end experience for HDR video with Dolby Vision up to 60 fps, said Apple. Dolby Vision grading is processed live and sustained during editing in the Photos app or iMovie, and is coming to Final Cut Pro X later this year.
These come with new LiDAR Scanner, offering the ability to measure light distance and use pixel depth information of a scene. This technology delivers faster, more realistic AR experiences and improves autofocus by 6x in low-light scenes for more accuracy and reduced capture time in photos and videos. Combined with the A14 Bionic, this also offers Night mode portraits. This also has the new MagSafe wireless charging.
