Best iPhone 12 features.

There are tonnes of exciting features on the iPhone 12: advanced 5G technology, an upgraded A14 Bionic chip, toughened glass, an impressive design, five vibrant colours to choose from and an enhanced dual-camera system. To name just a few.

5G on iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 comes with the latest technology in mobile internet – 5G. Paired with a pay monthly contract deal that supports 5G, you’ll be able to experience break-neck speeds, giving you the ability to download films in a flash, stream higher-quality video and FaceTime in HD – all on the fly.

This isn’t just normal 5G, though. iPhone 12 uses 5G in an even smarter way – when your iPhone doesn’t need 5G speeds, for things like background updates, it switches to 4G LTE to conserve battery life. Then when you need more speed, iPhone 12 switches back to superfast 5G.

Apple’s best iPhone display – ever.

This time round, Apple’s upgraded the display from LCD to OLED. What does that mean? You get more contrast with brighter brights and darker blacks, making everything look sharper and crisper. From your videos to your photos, and even just reading text on-screen, the viewing experience is unlike anything you’ve seen on iPhone before.

At 6.1-inches, it’s also a great size for streaming and enjoying video content on the move or sat around the house. And with an iPhone 12 deal with 5G included as part of the plan, you don’t have to put up with the usual lag and buffering you sometimes get when trying to stream high-quality video – it’s all available in an instant, just how it should be.

A pro-grade dual-camera system.

The iPhone camera experience just got better thanks to the dual-camera system built into iPhone 12. It features two lenses: Wide and Ultra Wide. Both of which now come with Night mode for capturing brighter photos in low-light settings. Day or night, you’re good to go with iPhone 12.

Likewise, the video now performs better than ever in dark situations. It’s 27% better than previous models, making it possible to capture great-looking video at any time. Of course, you can then fine-tune your video after in Photos or iMovie, adding effects that lend it a more professional and unique finish.

Extra tough design.

Ready for a fresh look? Apple has introduced a re-worked design with a flat front and back, finished with aerospace-grade aluminium edges. It’s 11% thinner, 15% smaller, 16% lighter, and 100% a head-turner.

But it’s not just a new look – iPhone 12 is tougher and materially stronger than the previous generation. Manufactured with Ceramic Shield glass, it boasts 4x better drop performance for even greater peace of mind. Not to mention even better spill and splash resistance – IP68 certified to withstand a maximum depth of 6 meters up to 30 minutes.

Then of course you have a stunning range of five different colours to choose from, including (PRODUCT)RED, black, blue, green and white. All of which support MagSafe accessories, from cases to wallets – they simply stick to the back of your iPhone 12, held in place with magnets.

Powerful performance with A14 Bionic chip.

The iPhone 12 comes with the A14 Bionic chip. It’s also the same one used in iPhone 12 Pro, so you know you getting plenty for your money. How much? A14 can crunch over 1 trillion operations per second, which means it’s fast. Seriously fast. You’ll experience smooth and instant responsiveness when using your iPhone 12.
