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.
Mini but mighty.
Ceramic Shield. Clearly tougher than any smartphone glass.
4x better drop performance
Aerospace-grade aluminium edges.
Even better spill and splash resistance
Five fresh finishes.
A14 Bionic Chip
11 trillion operations per second.
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 amazingly efficient for great battery life. And it’s ahead of its time, prepared to power pretty much anything that comes next.
Super Retina XDR display
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.
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 per cent more light. So whether you take photos by the day or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and colour that wasn’t possible before.
Evenings have entered the picture.
Night mode senses when light is low and kicks in automatically, maintaining clarity while capturing beautiful vibrant colour. All you have to do is start snapping.
Photos that were once hard to capture — as a dramatic moonlit scene — now come out sharper than ever.
Deep Fusion, in mid to low light, analyses multiple exposures to maximise detail. Check out the texture in the wood, fabric and crystal. And the Ultra Wide gets you a heroic perspective.
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 per cent 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.
Now 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 kid does something adorable.
First camera ever to record in Dolby Vision
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.
