Will it be the compact 12 mini or has the 12 Pro Max caught your eye?
Last month four incredible iPhones were announced: iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. All of the new releases pack Apple’s incredible 5G technology, their fastest ever chip and cracking camera systems.
The key difference between the four new iPhones is their size and we thought it’d be handy to learn a little about each of their sizes so you can choose an iPhone that’s perfect for you.
With Black Friday just around the corner, there's no time like the present to do some research and figure out which of the new iPhones is right for you.
Of course we can't confirm or deny that these iPhones will be featured in our sale, but it might just be worth deciding which is your favourite! We've devised a handy guide that compares the sizes of the four new iPhones, helping you on your way to making this tough decision!
iPhone 12 mini – the one that fits right in your pocket.
If you’re looking for an iPhone that packs Apple’s top features, but also fits perfectly in your pocket, then iPhone 12 mini is the one for you.
Don’t be thrown by the term mini, the iPhone 12 mini holds a pretty mighty title: the world’s smallest, thinnest, lightest 5G phone. It measures at 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm and weighs 133g, making it super-compact and practical!
It has a 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR display, making it the perfect go-everywhere phone. It fits perfectly in your hand, your purse, your bag, and your pocket! It’s the ideal phone for those of you who prefer a smaller phone.
iPhone 12 mini packs systemwide colour management and almost twice the peak brightness of iPhone 11. This means that it’s still a fantastic option for those of you who love a series binge or rely on your phone for entertainment on your daily commute.
iPhone 12 – the one that’s just right.
This is the middle-man of the new iPhone 12 series. It features an impressive 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, bigger than that of iPhone 12 mini.
iPhone 12 measures at 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4mm and weighs 162g, meaning users get more screen than they would with the 12 mini and get all the same great features.
This is the phone for those of you who want that bigger screen, be it for streaming your favourite TV shows, browsing the internet, having a nosey on social media or for playing the latest games.
We’ve called it the middle-man because it packs a big enough display to do all of this on but is still the perfect size to be carried around with you.
It can fit in your palm and be operated with just one hand. If you’re holding the dog lead or a glass of wine with your other hand, you can still easily send a quick text message or scroll without any struggle!
iPhone 12 Pro – the one for the pros.
iPhone 12 Pro sports the same sized display as iPhone 12. It has a stunning 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with systemwide colour management that transports users right into the centre of their favourite shows and movies.
iPhone 12 Pro measures at 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4mm, which is the same as iPhone 12. However, the 12 Pro weighs 187g slightly more than the iPhone 12 - it must be all those extra features!
Although it's the same size as iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro has an OLED display that brings HDR video content to life, reaching a huge 1200 nits peak brightness! It’s the perfect phone if you want a large screen, with more advanced features than iPhone 12!
iPhone 12 Pro Max – the one that’s the biggest.
This is the ideal phone for those of you who think that bigger is better. iPhone 12 Pro Max has a whopping 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display, making it the biggest of the new iPhone 12 series.
It measures at 160.8 x 78.1 x 7.4mm and weighs 226g! When compared to the 12 mini's tiny 133g, it quickly becomes clear that this is the beast of the new iPhone 12 series!
This iPhone is a huge step up in size from the others and is the one to go for if you’re looking for a screen that’ll make you feel as though you’re carrying a cinema screen around in your pocket!
It features the impressive systemwide colour management that the others have as well as an OLED display that brings your favourite characters to life. It reaches a huge 1200 nits peak brightness so you can kick back, grab some popcorn, and get the best view.
iPhone 12 Pro Max is the biggest of the bunch and for many of you, that’ll mean it’s the best.
Which will it be?
We can’t say which iPhone 12 is the best for you, that’s something you’ve got to decide! If you want an iPhone that packs Apple’s technology into something compact, then the iPhone 12 mini is perfect.
If you want an iPhone that has a bigger display but can still be carried in your pocket, opt for iPhone 12! For an iPhone that has a great sized display for streaming, more advanced features AND can still fit in your pocket – iPhone 12 Pro is the way to go!
And if you think bigger is better and want a screen that’s huge, iPhone 12 Pro Max is your best bet!
