iPhone 12 Pro

Besides being larger, the real difference you’ll see in the iPhone 12 Pro devices are in the triple-rear camera systems. The Pro has 2.5x optical zoom this time around, with the Pro Max upping it to 4x optical zoom.

Apple is claiming that the iPhone 12 Pro camera features has 87 per cent better low light performance than the previous generation. There is also a slight difference in the telephoto lenses in both phones.

Both the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max have LiDAR support and a new ProRAW image format. The latter won’t roll out until later in the year but it combines RAW photo format with multi-frame image processing through computational photography

This basically means that the layers of photo data are held separately from one another. ProRAW then allows you to have control over and edit this separate elements (such as tone mapping and dynamic range) natively in the iPhone camera app.

And when it comes to video, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max can now record in HDR and supports Dolby Vision. These phones will be able to shoot in 4K at 60 fps, which is a first.

Here’s the key specs for the iPhone 12 Pro:

  • A14 Bionic chip CPU
  • 6.1-inch OLED Super Retina XDR display
  • 128/256/512 GB storage (no word on RAM as Apple doesn’t disclose this)
  • 5G connectivity
  • Triple rear cameras – 12MP ultra wide (Æ’/2.4 aperture), 12MP wide (Æ’/1.6 aperture) and 12MP telephoto (Æ’/2.0). 12MP (Æ’/2.2 aperture) front-facing camera
  • HDR 4K video recording
  • Face ID
  • Up to 17 hours video playback with Qi and new MagSafe wireless charging (Apple doesn’t disclosed the battery size)

SE

The 2020 iPhone SE brings the beloved device into a more modern setting.

Its materials have been upgraded to aluminium and glass and nestled beneath the surface you’ll find a Touch ID button.

At the rear there’s a 12MP camera, which we saw in the iPhone XR, but it’s still been upgraded.

Other fun camera extras include Smart HDR, which offers optical image stabilisation, the ability to present clearer faces and subject recognition. Sadly there’s no night mode, but it does apparently have decent low light capabilities.

In terms of video, the rear camera can record 4K at 30 fps and contains cinematic stabilisation.

The 7MP selfie camera has also gotten a boost with the inclusion of monocular depth estimation, which allows for the portrait mode bokeh effect everyone loves.

The addition of Qi wireless charging, as well as 18W fast-charging when plugged in, also makes this feel a little closer to a flagship phone without having to shell out quite as much as usual for the Apple branding.

Here are the key specs:

  • Display: 4.7 inches (1334 x 750)
  • CPU: A13 Bionic Chip
  • Storage: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB
  • Battery: Up to 13 hours video playback, Qi wireless charging, fast charge
  • Rear camera: 12MP (f/1.8)
  • Front camera: 7MP (f/2.2)
  • Video recording: 4K video up to 60 fps
  • Size: 5.45 x 2.65 x 0.29 inches
  • Weight: 148g
