Apple introduces new iPhone 12 family

Four 5G smartphones from Mini to Pro Max

Apple has introduced its iPhone 12 smartphone range this week, offering 5G connectivity, IP68 protection, tougher 'Ceramic Shield' displays and the company's A14 Bionic processor on all the new devices.

There are four models available in a variety of colours: the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. All will be supplied with a 'USB C to Lightning' cable and will support wireless charging but will not be supplied with a separate charger. The phones feature Apple's 'MagSafe' magnetic back, which is designed to provide optimum positioning for wireless charging and to hold other accessories in place.

The standard Apple iPhone 12 moves away from standard LED display technology with a 6.1-inch OLED screen encased in an aluminium body with glass back. It's equipped with a 12-megapixel dual camera and is expected to cost from £799 SIM-free in the UK for the 64GB model, going on sale on 23rd October. The iPhone 12 Mini has a similar camera but a 5.4-inch screen and a UK pricetag from £699 when it launches next month. The 'Pro' phones have a stainless steel body and a triple camera system, plus a LiDAR distance sensor; the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 6.7in OLED screen and the iPhone 12 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen. Pricing for the iPhone 12 Pro is from £999 for the 128GB phone, with the iPhone 12 Pro Max costing from £1,099 SIM-free when it hits the shops on 13th November.
