Blast past fast.
A14 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone. An edge-to-edge OLED display. Ceramic Shield with four times better drop performance. And Night mode on every camera. iPhone 12 has it all — in two perfect sizes.
Even better spill and splash resistance.
A14 Bionic is the fastest chip in a smartphone.
And it pushes what’s possible. Like crunching trillions of operations on the Neural Engine. Or shooting in Dolby Vision — even pro movie cameras can’t do that. It’s super efficient for great battery life. And it’s ahead of its time, prepared to power pretty much anything that comes next.
Our best iPhone display ever
Vastly more contrast. Incredible colour accuracy. A huge jump in pixel density. Wow. Just wow. OLED delivers brighter brights, darker blacks and higher resolution for everything you look at. This is the best iPhone display we’ve ever made, and it goes all the way to the edge.
Dual‑camera system, Welcome to the dark side.
Both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras now have Night mode — and it’s better than ever at capturing incredible low-light shots. The new Wide camera brings in 27% more light. So whether you take photos by day or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and colour that wasn’t possible before.
Smart HDR 3 balances the elements in a shot, bringing out detail in the subject and trees while retaining the rich colour of the sky — even at high noon.
Beyond faces, Smart HDR 3 uses machine learning to recognise scenes, then adjusts sharpness, colour and white balance where needed.
Even in bright light, Smart HDR 3 is amazing at capturing texture, skin tone, colour saturation and individual details that make photos feel true to life.
Face it. Nothing beats Portrait mode.
Portrait mode is even better at artfully blurring the background to put all the focus on your subject. Lovely, isn’t it?
Take great photos even further by choosing from six creative lighting effects, like High‑Key Light Mono, Natural Light and Studio Light.
How do you improve on the highest-quality video in a smartphone? Make it even better in low light — a full 27% better. That means no hour is off limits for more beautifully detailed video. Then there’s Night mode Time-lapse. Just prop up your iPhone and let the light trails begin.
And boom.You own a film studio.
Now you can record 4K HDR video with Dolby Vision. Edit in Photos or iMovie. Then zap it to your TV using AirPlay to see all that colour and detail. It’s a start-to-finish cinematic experience — found only on iPhone. Which comes in handy when your dog does something adorable.
Night mode selfies, You look amazing in the dark.
Night-time is the right time for a selfie. Because Night mode and a slew of other great features are now on the front camera. Like Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 3, Dolby Vision recording and more. You lucky duck face.
WirelessLet’s speed things up.
iPhone 12 delivers 4G LTE at up to 2 Gbps. So you can download shows, upload photos and stream high-quality video even faster. And you can do it in more places, because iPhone 12 has up to 32 LTE bands — more than any other smartphone.
Privacy is built in.
iPhone is designed to protect your information. Face ID data doesn’t leave your iPhone and is never backed up to iCloud or anywhere else. All the iMessages you send are encrypted. iOS shows you an app’s privacy practices before you download it. And the list goes on.
