Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone 12 Pro is the same as its little brother the iPhone 12 with the A14 Bionic processor. Pricing for the iPhone 12 Pro starts at $999 USD and it comes in three different colours, Graphite, Silver, Gold and Blue.
First up in the box you have the iPhone 12 Pro itself. Next will find the documentation a SIM card eject tool, quick start guide, Warranty information and Apple sticker. The only other accessory is the Lighting USB cable, which does up to 50% charge in 30 mins with a 20-watt adapter. Not to forget that the 12 Pro supports 15 watts wireless charging and is IP68 water and dust resistant.
Minimal Packaging – iPhone 12 Pro
It’s worth mentioning that Apple has removed the USB charger and minimised packaging and documentation. Which I think its great for the environment. However, I would have liked to see Apple minimised the price of the iPhone also.
The iPhone 12 Pro has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display. It has a 2532 by 1170-pixel resolution at 460 ppi. If you compare it with the iPhone 8 on the left, you can see the Pro has allot more screen real estate on its 6.1-inch OLED display. In addition, for those of your who are thinking about upgrading from the iPhone 8 it would be a big update.
Here’s a quick compassion between the screen size on the 12 Pro and the Samsung S20+.
Design Change on the iPhone 12 Pro
Apple has changed the design of the iPhone 12 line up as well. It now has smooth flat edges, which allows the iPhone to stand up on its end. I love this design we first saw it on the iPhone SE. However, the aluminium frame does show fingerprints. This might not be an issue if you decide to buy a cover.
The left side of the iPhone, you have the Ring Silent and Volume up and down buttons and a SIM card slot.
On the right side, you have the Sleep Wake power button. On the bottom, you have the lighting connector, microphone and 1 of the stereo speakers. Actually, the Stereo speakers are impressive. Take a listen.
Face unlock is standard on the iPhone 12 models. Along the front top of the 12 Pro we have a 12 megapixel True Depth Camera which has a F2.2 aperture. While you can’t see them there is actually a whole bunch of sensors hidden here. Ambient light, Proximity, Flood illuminator, infrared camera and dot projector.
On the back of the 12 Pro you have a Triple Camera setup which features a Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras. The Ultra Wide camera has a 120-degree field of view. The new Wide camera has a f 1.6 aperture and a 7 element lens which lets in more light. Moreover, the last camera on the iPhone Pro 12 features a 52 millimetre telephoto camera for stunning portrait shots.
Therefore, out of the box the iPhone 12 Pro will take amazing photos. Here are some comparisons between the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 8. Can you spot the difference?
The iPhone 12 Pro has the A14 processor. A fast processor is important when playing games and videos or when generally moving around the iPhone. Here’s the Geekbench scores for the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 8.
In terms of Battery life for the iPhone, you can expect up to 17 hours video playback. This will get you about 11 hours of streamed video playback. Say from the web.
So what’s my thoughts pretty amazing phone you can’t really go wrong. However I think the price could have dropped a bit since Apple no longer includes a charger and battery life could be also be improved in my mind. I would like to see it last longer.
