iPhone 12 Features and Specifications
The iPhone 12 is powered by A14 Bionic which is supposedly 60% faster when compared to the A13 chipset that runs the iPhone 11 models. Apple is highlighting the ‘incredible’ gaming performance that the all new iPhone 12 models have to offer.

The iPhone 12 and 12 mini are similar to the Pro models in most respects, but the camera is a major differentiating factor.

That said, there are still significant camera improvements in the new iPhone 12 models compared to the iPhone 11. There’s an f/2.4 Ultra Wide camera and a Wide camera that has a new f/1.6 aperture that lets in 27 percent more light for better performance in low-light conditions along with 2x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom.

It also supports 4K video recording at up to 60fps. There’s improved cinematic video stabilization and a Night mode Time-Lapse feature, along with Dolby Vision selfie videos using the TrueDepth camera.
Speaking of the TrueDepth camera, it continues to enable the Face ID facial recognition biometric authentication feature in the iPhone, and it offers a 12-megapixel selfie camera. The selfie camera now supports Smart HDR 3, Deep Fusion, Night mode, and Night mode Portrait shots.
When it comes to battery life, the iPhone 12 offers up to 17 hours of video playback, 11 hours of streaming video playback, or 65 hours of video playback. The iPhone 12 mini offers up to 15 hours of video playback, 10 hours of streaming video playback, or 50 hours of audio playback.
