Apple has designed the iPhone 12 series to appeal to first-time buyers and those upgrading from an iPhone X or 11 models. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max target traditional consumers, photographers, and videographers as they spend enough to have a larger screen, advanced camera/lens features. With a smaller screen, the iPhone 12 mini targets budget-conscious consumers. Next to that, the iPhone 12 is aimed at buyers who desire a larger screen but do not require the features of the Pro.
The iPhone 12 series come with some exclusive features, which are better than their standard counterparts. For those looking for one of the best in the iPhone 12 series, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the best iPhone 12 to buy if you want it all. Below are some iPhone 12 lineup features:
1.Home screen widgets settings:
With Apple’s new App Library feature, you can remove all the apps you don’t often use from your home screen. Using the App Library, you can easily access everything in folders by swiping left across the iPhone display.
2.High-definition FaceTime calls:
With the iPhone 12, your video will max out at 1080p HD resolution on all iPhone 12 models, not 720p HD as it did previously. It is only possible to use FaceTime HD (1080p) through Wi-Fi or 5G cellular connections. If you use a 5G network, you’ll have much better FaceTime call quality. You cannot use it on a 4G or LTE network.
The picture-in-picture feature of iOS 14 is one of its best features. The video will appear as a pop-out window in the corner of your screen once you are watching it in a supported app, and then you can return to the Home screen or another app. Even when you are handling a side task, the video keeps playing. You can usually enter Picture in Picture mode from a fullscreen video manually, but to set Picture in Picture as the default, go to Settings, select General, then Picture in Picture. From there, enable Start Picture in Picture Automatically.
4.Water-resistant up to 6 meters:
Under IEC standard IP68, Apple’s iPhone can withstand a depth of four meters for up to 30 minutes. During the same time frame, the maximum depth on the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro remained at six meters, while the IP68 rating remained the same.
5.Measure a person’s height:
Lidar scanners in the iPhone 12 Pro models can accurately measure distances between you and items in front of your rear camera. Lidar measures depth using short bursts of laser pulses to scan an area, creating a map that can be used for more precise measurements of distances, heights, and widths.
6.Night mode is available on Ultra-Wide and TrueDepth cameras:
iPhone 11’s night mode only works with its wide-angle lens. But now, Night mode can be used on the ultra-wide & TrueDepth cameras on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, 12 Pro, 12 mini, and 12, as well as the standard wide-angle camera.
7.Use Night Mode for Portrait Photos:
Taking a better-exposed photo in low-light conditions is possible with the Night mode, but it was exclusively available in photo mode. Lidar scanning makes it possible for the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max to use it in Portrait mode as well. Cameras with lidar sensors can focus faster in dark environments and create depth maps that can be used to gauge the distance to subjects better. Thus, Portrait mode is now able to use it.
8.Hook up Magnetic Accessories:
There is a circular magnetic array under the rear glass of the iPhone 12 lineup, which lets you connect MagSafe-compatible accessories. The wireless charger ensures the charger is always aligned perfectly to maximize the charging time. Other accessories include magnetic wallets, magnetic mounts, magnetic cold shoes, and more. Hence, you can connect iPhone accessories quickly and easily.
9.Apple ProRAW Format:
You could shoot in RAW with third-party applications before the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, but Apple ProRAW takes it up a notch. In addition to its associated benefits, it combines the depth and flexibility of raw formats with Apple’s multi-frame image processing and computational photography techniques.
10.Record In Dolby Vision With HDR:
HDR stands for high dynamic range, and it applies to both videos and photos. It is an accomplishment in itself to bring that to the iPhone. The Photos app and other Apple apps compatible with Dolby Vision allow you to color grade every frame, thanks to its mastering and delivery format. Dolby Vision is available on all new iPhones.
11.Zoom in photo & video more:
The iPhone 12 camera’s optical zoom distance is one of the most impressive features. On the iPhone 12 Pro, the telephoto lens is 52mm and increases the optical zoom range to 4x, while on the Pro Max, it is 65mm and provides 5x more optical zoom. With optical zoom, users can fill the camera sensor with the image they are trying to capture, producing a crisp, clear image. With inferior digital zooms, the middle part of the image is digitally magnified, losing a lot of detail and often introducing digital noise to the final image.
12.Use 5G cellular network:
iPhone 12 series include iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max; all support 5G cellular networks from low frequency to mmWave. Having a suitable carrier and being in the right spot allows you to get faster speeds and lower latency.
