iPhone 12 and 12 Pro: A New Line of 5G iPhones

Good news travels fast, especially when its news of a newly updated and designed iPhone.

In its “Hi, Speed.” Keynote livestream, Apple announced the long-awaited iPhone 12 lineup. The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max all come with 5G, including the ultra-fast milileter wave version that allows breaking neck download speeds that are miles apart from LTE or 4G (10 to 100 times faster).

Much of the biggest advancement that Apple has made in years such as the A14 Bionic chip, is packed into all four devices that somewhat resembles the iPad Pro tablets. Forgoing curved sides for flatter sides like the previous iPhone 5s, it’s a “new” look for the iPhone who has stay the same for almost three years.

All models also come with a new, cornering-designed front cover display, dubbed “ceramic shield.”  It’s “tougher than any smartphone glass,” Apple said, and is four times less likely to crack if you drop it. 

Similar to the charging of an Apple Watch, the iPhone’s wireless charger snaps to the back of the phone and it’s called MagSafe. Magnets in the phone and the charger align themselves for a perfect snap everytime.

The only available option for a charger right now is the $39 (RM161) MagSafe charger Apple is selling on its online store. Belkin and Griffin will have MagSafe chargers, too, but it seems likely that any other third-party accessory maker will need to work with Apple — presumably through its MFi licensing program.

In general, the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini that have dual rear cameras are the two most affordable and go-to phones for many.

The two Pro models are the highest-end and priciest iPhones as both have a third telephoto camera and a LiDar scanner for modeling and object detection.

For the first time and in a bid to help the environment, the charger and headphones are not included in the box; apart from that, it also helps with shipping as it saves space as well.

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini has a starting price of RM3,899 and RM3,399 while the iPhone 12 Pro starts at RM4,899 and the iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at RM5299
