“The arrival of 5G marks the beginning of a new era for iPhone and we’re thrilled to bring these impressive new capabilities to our customers with iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “We’re once again pushing the boundaries to deliver incredible computational photography advancements, Super Retina XDR displays, and the biggest leap in durability in iPhone history with the new Ceramic Shield front cover. Available in two great sizes, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini take design to a new level in a new form factor that’s as beautiful as it is durable, and makes it easier than ever for customers to find the perfect iPhone to fit their lifestyle.”
The display technology on the iPhone 12 has also been improved significantly as it now features the edge to edge Super Retina XDR display measuring at 6.1 inches. The display is also protected with Apple’s latest ceramic shield adding toughness and decreasing the chances of it breaking.
Design and Camera

The back of the device is glass and houses the new Advanced dual-camera system. This advanced camera system features the Ultra-Wide camera and a new Wide camera with an ƒ/1.6 aperture, the fastest yet on iPhone, providing 27 per cent more light for even more amazing low-light photos and videos.
The 12 mini
